Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Right Duvet for You?

Warmth is the most important criteria. If the weather gets colder or if you prefer a warmer duvet, check fill weight and the height of the bands inside your duvet. The higher the weight and the bands the warmer your duvet will be. You will find more advice in our duvet guide.

Does Down Influence Dust Mite Allergy?

Well-treated down (cleaned and well-dusted) will have no adverse effect on people with dust mite allergy. If you are allergic to down and feathers (though very few people are), then a down duvet is a bad choice.
Here you will find more information about duvets and allergy.

How Long Will My Down Duvet Last?

A down duvet lasts about 10 years. In the old days, a down duvet was cleaned and refilled every 7 to 10 years. This is still possible for certain duvets, but it occurs less and less often.

Is White Down Better Than Grey or Mixed Down?

No. White down is more commonly-desired because consumers dislike the grey and brown down flakes that can shine through a duvet. In fact, this rarely occurs. However, it is the reason grey or brown down is sometimes stitched into a coloured ticking.

How to Maintain my Down Duvet?

There are a few things than can make your down duvet last longer. Regular airing of the duvet is one. Preferably air your duvet in the open air but never in direct sunlight. Shaking the duvet out makes the down spread equally in the squares. If you do not use the duvet, put it away in the original bag (or at least a bag it can air in) in a dry place.
