What Do We Mean by Refilling a Duvet?

A refilled duvet can last for years. This process involves:

- Emptying the duvet
- Washing the ticking
- Sorting the good down tufts from the weakened ones
- Washing the down
- Adding new down
- Filling the ticking

Can All Duvets Be Refilled?

Unfortunately, not all duvets are suitable for refilling. Whether your duvet is suitable for refilling depends on how it was originally constructed. A duvet stitched in squares cannot be refilled. The stitches need to be loosened to extract the down and after that the duvet cannot be made down-tight. Furthermore, a duvet with a worn out ticking cannot be refilled. It becomes a false economy with high costs which do not balance with the risk that the duvet will no longer be down-tight.
