Duvets & Pillows | Q&A with the Product Team

Want to find out more about our Duvet & Pillow collection? Have a read of our Q&A with the product team.

What should I do with my duvet / pillows when they arrive?

We recommend allowing them to air / rest in a warm place for 24 hours. This will allow the filling to ‘re-loft’ and return to its soft and fluffy best before use. 

What is fill power?

Fill power applies to down products and is essentially a measure of the loft or ‘fluffiness’ of the fill. The higher the fill power, the larger the down clusters – this is key to the quality / plumpness of the product.

A fill power of 750 (our 100% Down Duvet / Pillows) is considered extremely high and means the duvet / pillow will retain its loft and plumpness for a long time, trapping more air and giving an incredibly warm but lightweight product.

What is the best way to wash my duvet / pillows?

  • Avoid washing as much as possible – simply airing / ventilating your duvet ensures that it smells pleasant, stays clean and maintains its fill power. Do this in dry weather, without exposing it to direct sunlight.
  • It is also worth regularly flipping your duvet – it is not dissimilar to a mattress in that it will last longer if rotated on a regular basis.
  • When washing, we recommend professional laundering on all our filled products, as both the washing machine and tumble dryer should have 50% empty capacity to allow them to re-loft. Using professional machines means having the size / capacity to keep the fills in optimal condition long term.
  • Don’t ever use a ‘fast wash’ – these are typically very high temperature and can damage / melt the filling. 
Super-soft, rustle-free and fluffed-to-the-max

Which fill should I choose?

This is entirely down to personal preference.

Our natural fills are popular as they are breathable, cloud-like and long-lasting (with the added benefit of being fully hypoallergenic due to their NOMITE and Downafresh certifications).

Our ‘down alternative’ fill is a more affordable alternative to the natural fills, and an eco-fill as it is made of recycled plastic bottles. It’s the perfect option for those who don’t want to use animal products.

Are your natural-fill products ethically sourced?

Yes, animal welfare is highly important to us and was a huge factor in choosing the partners to make our products. Our manufacturing partner is based in the UK and is a member of the European Down and Feather Association. This means that our natural fills are either a responsibly sourced by-product of the food industry (in the case of our 100% Down products) or made from 100% recycled down (in the case of our Recycled Down products).

What’s the difference between feather and down? Why do you exclusively use down?

Feather is a cheaper alternative to down, and 100% down product are much less common than feather-mixes (often a product described as ‘down’ will contain a component of feather). Our collection offers 100% down products – they’re lofty, light and there is nothing quite as luxurious or comfortable as pure down.

Down clusters are much lighter than feathers and yet they deliver the same level of warmth – meaning you get a comfortable, lightweight but lofty duvet / pillow that drapes around you / you truly sink into. It’s the ultimate cloud-like sleep experience.

Why have you chosen Duck down instead of Goose Down?

Duck down often gets overlooked in favour of the well-known Hungarian or Siberian Goose Down. Our product team tried them all and found minimal difference in terms of feel / fluffiness / loftiness / quality – but a huge difference in cost.

Manufacturers often get round the expense of these premium fills by mixing down with feather, but having tried 100% down, we knew it was the best and the option we were committed to offering our customers. That’s why we’ve chosen two 100% down options for you. 

Soft-as-a-cloud duvets and pillows for a dreamy night’s sleep

What is a baffle wall casing?

When it comes to duvets, the quality of the fill is incredibly important, but so is the quality of the casing. We exclusively use a baffle wall construction, which means your duvet will last a lot longer and the filling will stay in place.

A baffle box construction is where the casing is made from stitched pockets, which is stuffed with a uniform amount of down. Our pockets are roughly 2/3 of the size of the average pockets (more pockets = higher quality case and better sleep experience as the duvet has a more even drape and snuggles around the body more easily).

Ready to sleep in your own cloud of comfort? The Duvet & Pillow collection is launching in October 2021.
