Can you Refill a Down Duvet?
Yes, it is indeed possible to refill a down duvet. However, it is important to note that not all duvets are compatible with the refilling process.
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 Does Duvet Refilling Entail?
Refilling a duvet can significantly extend its lifespan for years to come. The process of refilling involves:
– Emptying the duvet
– Washing the casing
– Separating the high-quality down tufts from the weakened ones
– Cleaning the down
– Introducing fresh, new down into the duvet
Can you replace the casing of a duvet?
Certainly! It is indeed possible to replace the casing of a duvet. However, it’s important to note that a new casing may come at a significant cost. On average, the expense can range from 40% to 60% of the price of a similar quality duvet.
