Anti-mite technology - down for sensitive skin

Down is the best natural warmth material available

Down is a kind of down that grows in the abdomen of geese and ducks, and is called feather. Because down is a kind of animal protein fiber, down spherical fiber densely covered with millions of triangular pores, can shrink and expand with the temperature change, produce temperature regulation function, can absorb the human body emitted flow of hot air, isolate the outside world cold air invasion. For example, the minimum standard of 450 Fil 90 down is fluffier than silk and cotton, so the economic value of down as a warm material is much higher than other warm materials. Because down has this unique light and soft warmth and moisture absorption and dispersion of good performance, decided to down good health care function, down is widely used in clothing, quilted, textile filler and other fields.

The treatment of raw down is essential for the human body

After preliminary screening, dust removal, fine screening, packing and other procedures, the raw material wool of down still contains a lot of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms, which cannot be used directly as filling materials, but also need to be washed and dried. Of course, there are still many problems with the traditional processes and procedures, which can lead to the growth of mites.
Warm Goose has re-optimized the processing of the down material to avoid mite adhesion during the manufacturing process and give you better protection for your skin.

Rinse water treatment

The purpose of washing is to remove fine particles, dander and mildew from the down and Warm Goose uses an environmentally friendly detergent to assist in this process, with the addition of some white oil (white mechanical oil) after washing to add shine and prevent insect infestation.

Dehydration

The purpose of washing is to remove fine particles, dander and mildew from the down and Warm Goose uses an environmentally friendly detergent to assist in this process, with the addition of some white oil (white mechanical oil) after washing to add shine and prevent insect infestation.

Drying

Warm Goose uses steam high temperature dryer. The steam drying process is different from the previous hot air dryer, the high temperature steam of 120~130℃ effectively kills bacteria and mites, and dries the down quickly, while the steam with water molecules can better maintain the performance of the down (traditional drying hot air will change the shape of the down and destroy the insulation effect). Drying is a highly technical process, not only should pay attention to the time of each down drying operation, but also to the fluffiness of the down, in the Warm Goose drying process, germs and mites will be effectively killed, more friendly to sensitive skin.

Cooling 

Cooling can be through the cooling machine exhaust screen, further exclude down odor, down quality is conducive to further improve, but also conducive to restore the natural water content of down. If the water content in the down exceeds the natural moisture, the down is prone to mold and mildew; and the water is less than the natural moisture, the down will be dry and brittle, easy to break, affecting the quality.


Packaging and storage

It's important to leave the duck down to dry for an extended period of time to ensure that it fully recovers its natural moisture for optimal fluffiness and warmth. This way Warm Goose's mite resistant down is ready to move on to the next step in making your own down jacket.
