Why the big difference in down price? What’s the difference?

Let us discuss why there is a big diffirence in down price in China ?

1,The size of the velvet
1, Breeding more than a year of duck (goose) velvet per 0.1 grams is about 100 to 150;
2, Breeding 6-8 months of duck (goose) velvet about 200 to 230 per 0.1 gram;
3, About 60 days of breeding duck (goose) velvet per 0.1 grams is about 320 to 360;
4, Breeding duck (goose) velvet for about 35 days is about 400 to 460 per 0.1 gram;
5, Breeding duck (goose) velvet for about 28 days is about 550 to 620 per 0.1 gram.

2, Down color
1, Duck (goose) breeding time in more than 60 days of velvet color is very white, but can not guarantee that 100% are pure white, containing about 0.1% black velvet. This is because white ducks (geese) that have been raised for a long time will grow different colors of fur on their bodies for a long time, just like people will grow white hair when they are old.
2, duck (goose) breeding 28 to 35 days of small velvet, no black velvet, but the color is yellow, because the growth time is short, different color velvet did not grow, but the immature wool is more, so the color is yellow, did not reach pure white.

3,Bleached velvet and natural velvet
1, natural down is dynamic and shiny, soft and elastic velvet, good shaggy.
2, bleaching down, adding chemical agents in the processing process, so that the oil layer on the surface of natural down is destroyed, resulting in down no luster, velvet brittle, lose elasticity, affecting the down’s own shaggy degree. When bleached down is placed for a long time, the velvet will increase and the velvet content will decrease. Domestic well-known brands used bleached down to make clothing, the down content of 90% in that year, the warehouse inspection index all qualified; However, the inventory of garments was checked again the following year, and the cashmere content was reduced to 85%. Now the color of the yellow down on the market are basically bleached, the oil layer of this down is destroyed, and it will slowly turn yellow over time.

4, the degree of shagginess
1, the puffy degree is a key indicator of the quality of down, down products mainly look at the fluffy effect of the finished product, that is, the degree of expansion; This means that down is ultimately measured by volume rather than weight.
2, a clothes filled with 80 grams of fluffy high down, the effect is better than 100 grams of fluffy low down. The unit price of down with high shagginess is higher than that of down with low shagginess, but the total cost of down with high shagginess is almost the same. And with a good degree of fluffy down made of finished products, customers also feel much better to touch, and it is much easier to recommend.
3, the higher the fluffy down quality, the better. Japan, where down products are widely used, is the most important indicator of down to the level of fullness.
4, the test method of the fullness should be verified by the steam reduction method to be accurate. The oven method used in GB/T 14272-2011 standard does not really test the original fluffy degree of down.

5, cashmere content and cashmere content
1, GB/T 14272-2011 standard adopted the inspection method and assessment indicators are difficult to detect the quality of down, do not assess the content of velvet, feather, fluffy standard parameters set low; Therefore, the GB/T 14272-2011 standard is deficient and imperfect.
2. Down with a lot of velvet and feather content will easily mislead the inspection during the detection process, which will increase the velvet and cashmere content. But velvet and feather are the main culprit of drill velvet, the more content of velvet and feather, the lower the shagginess.
3, the standard parameters mislead the clothing brand monitoring only look at the test results, do not pay attention to the extent.

6. Impurities
GB/T 14272-2011 standard stipulates that the impurity content of down is less than 1%, and most of the down impurities in the market are greater than 0.6% and less than 1%. However, the impurity content of this down is still relatively high, and down with high impurity content will be damp and produce odor and bacteria that are not good for the human body. The quality of down can achieve impurities less than 0.3%, so as to ensure that down products will not produce odor and bacteria in the process of use, and the impurities should be within 0.3%. It must be done with fresh raw materials and through multiple processes.

7. Dust
Dust is a major problem in down processing plants, because there is no assessment index to measure the standard, through the special dust detection equipment detection, the content of down dust on the market is about 1.5% to 5%. Such down in the filling room and filling machine is obvious to see their existence, dusty down in the filling room through the fabric drill out a part, the filling room is filled with this kind of down is white, and the wall of the filling machine accumulates a lot of gray powder. This kind of down is made into a finished, light-colored down jacket after washing the whole garment becomes like a map of the patchy; The duvet covers the human body inhalation dust will cough allergy.

8. Smell
1, geese are herbivores, goose down fat content is small, so goose down is no smell.
2, gray duck down smell is better than white duck down smell, loose duck duck down smell better than circle duck duck down smell, duck farming time longer duck down smell less. Ducks raised for 28 days to 35 days have the greatest eiderdown smell.

9.Velvet, feather and neck hair
Velvet, feather, neck hair in the down, the less the better, the higher the volume, the less chance of making products.

10, the difference between imported down and China domestic down
1, in recent years, the application of GB/T 14272-2011 standard, most manufacturers drill the standard hole, the market supervision is not enough, the quality inspection agency is not professional, there are many indicators without examination and testing, down adulteration is very serious, the market is very few good quality down, resulting in speculation manufacturers to import down.
2, China is the world’s down industry power, 85% of the down produced in China, a lot of down are exported from China to Japan, Taiwan, and then exported to the world from Japan, Taiwan. Some of the down is then imported back to China. Therefore, the so-called imported down is also mostly produced in China.
3, to process good quality down must focus on fresh raw materials, down “golden 6 hours” refers to down from duck (goose) from slaughter and hair removal to make finished down as long as 6 hours, so that down can achieve first-class quality, velvet, down less, high degree of shagginess. Not to mention the origin of these down, imported raw materials after a long time of storage and compression transportation, coupled with climate change, the processing of down silk and feather silk, the quality is not good.
4, the world’s duck (goose) velvet is derived from the growth of a certain time of the duck (goose) body, no national boundaries, good raw materials are produced from where are good raw materials, but the raw materials are also timely processing and technical processing to make good quality down.
