Often plucked from live birds in a cruel manner. Do you really want to buy such a product?

I understand your concern and I guess it's a matter of choice but just wanted to answer you the best I could.

The feathers and down found in most, but not all, bedding and clothing is a by-product of dearly departed waterfowl that have been slaughtered for food purposes. The plucking of live birds, while once commonplace, is now said to be more of a rare occurrence and has been outlawed in the United States and in several European countries.

In addition to PETA’s Hungarian crackdown, a Swedish news program called “Kalla Fakta” (“Cold Facts”) ran a two-part expose on the down harvesting industry in 2009. The documentary claimed that 50 to 80 percent of the world’s down market comes from live-plucked birds, a much higher figure than broadcast by the global feather and down industry. Naturally, the feather and down industries in several countries including China freaked out, claiming that live plucking was a rarity and that the 50 to 80 percent figure was simply not true. The China Feather and Down Industrial Association claimed that a mere 1 to 3 percent of the country’s feathers came from live birds while the European Down and Feather Association claimed estimated live-pluck rates to be around 2 percent.

Many companies have taken a firm stance on the issue and are transparent about exactly how the down and feathers in their products have been harvested. If a company isn’t up front about the origins of the down that they use, then ask. Or you could just buy Canadian.

I hope that helps.

Put me right off that tbh! Was gonna treat my old folks
