Is duck down or goose down better?
There is a difference in warmth between duck down and goose down. Due to geese being larger birds, they have bigger clusters of a down feather; thus, a goose down quilt will be warmer than a duck down quilt. Both choices are great, but it will depend on how much warmth you require based on the climate and other considerations.

Goose down is more valuable and expensive than duck down due to its more exquisite qualities and higher demand. Because of the better warmth and higher fill power, resulting in a lush feather doona, more and more customers value goose down over duck down.
