Hi Paul,

Can you please advise on what is the best fabric for baffles in a down quilt? Also do you have any advice on the spacing of the baffles?

Regards Colin…

Hi Colin-

Nanoseeum makes a great down baffle.  Our custom 60” width allows you to strip it out and not have to piece baffles together to get to the 60” width of shell/liner fabrics: convenient.

5” spacing gives you nice, even lofting of down.  7” is a little less work, but compartment bulging is more pronounced.  I use 5” on my own gear except for above freezing stuff which I sew through rather than baffle.
