Goose Down Comforters Squeeze Test

Feathers are flat, appear two-dimensional, and have a pointy central shaft. You can easily tell the quality of your comforter by grasping a handful of the down comforter and squeezing. The more genuine down and the less feathers your down comforter has, the more comfortable your down comforter will be. If you feel sharp feather quill shafts and points poking out, you have lesser quality down for filling (or a comforter cover of low thread count).
