    Hi all,

    Last week we processed our first two ducks, and I've been using a bit of down for quilting.. what I was wondering though, is if anyone has tried to make yarn from down? We're planning on raising quite a few more ducks next year and I thought that that would be such a neat idea. Any other uses (besides pillows/coats etc) that anyone has for this crazy soft down?
