Is it possible to refill a down duvet? The answer is yes! However there are several caveats to keep in mind as not all duvets can, or indeed should, be refilled.
Can All Down Duvets Be Refilled?
Unfortunately, many down duvets are not suitable for refilling. Whether your duvet is suitable or not for refilling depends on how it was originally constructed. A duvet stitched in squares cannot be refilled; the stitches would need to be loosened to extract the down and after that the duvet cannot be remade down-tight. Furthermore, a duvet with a worn out casing cannot be refilled. It becomes a false economy as the benefits would not balance with the risk that the duvet may no longer be down-tight.
What Do We Mean by Refill a Down Duvet?
A refilled duvet can last for years. The refilling process involves:
– Emptying the duvet
– Washing the casing
– Separating the good down tufts from the weakened ones
– Washing the down
– Adding new down
– Refilling the duvet
