If I have allergies can I still use a goose down comforter?

Goose Down Comforters

Many people who are allergic to animals may still be able to use goose down comforters, since the goose down power fill is clean and enclosed within tightly woven fabric. Some experts think it is the mix of regular feathers with down in a down comforter that aggravates some allergies.

The purer the white goose down—the less amount of feathers included—the more allergenic the down comforter is.

Meaning fewer feathers equals fewer allergies? If it's the feathers, not the down, that cause allergies, why would higher fill power of down cause more allergies? Maybe you meant it's more hypoallergenic?
