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 tired ones
- Washing the down
- Refilling the down
- Filling the ticking

Can All Duvets Be Refilled?

Unfortunately, not all duvets are suitable for refilling. What to look for?
First of all, refilling depends on how the duvet 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 down tight. Furthermore, a duvet with a worn out ticking cannot be refilled. It becomes a false economy with high costs that do not balance the risk that the duvet will no longer be down tight.
