odjeća punjena paperjem

down znaci:
1. the soft, first plumage of many young birds.
2. the soft under plumage of birds as distinct from the contour feathers.
3. the under plumage of some birds, as geese and ducks, used for filling in quilts, clothing, etc., chiefly for warmth.

tj. paperje, pahuljice, peruške

nb. razlika je izmedju feathers and down - feathers su normalno perje, dok je down njeznije i skuplje

a moze i odjevni predmeti punjeni paperjem

evo objasnjenja paperja:
Paperje je mekan sloj pahuljica pod perjem, koje se često čerupaju sa živih gusaka uzgajanih za hranu....Paperje ne samo da je skupo, već i gubi svoju sposobnost izoliranja kada se smoči, dok ne-okrutni sintetički materijali ostaju dobri toplinski izolatori pri svim vremenskim uvjetima
