How To Choose Your Down Duvet

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR DOWN DUVET

  1. Make sure your duvet is filled with superior quality goose or duck down. Only the top grades of down will stay fluffy for many years. Poor quality or low-grade down will flatten and clump into tiny balls in a couple of years. The colour of the down is unimportant - the famous eiderdown duck (now an endangered species) has down that is almost black in colour.
  2. How many ounces of down does your duvet contain? Do not buy a duvet without knowing this fact. Some manufacturers state the entire weight of the duvet, covering included, or include mostly feathers with the down.
  3. Do not buy a duvet that contains a considerable amount of feathers. Feathers add weight only, not the fluffy warmth that you get from down. Feathers trap the down filaments so that they cannot expand to their maximum fullness. Keep in mind that all commercial grade down allows for a small amount of waterfowl feathers as it is impossible to separate absolutely all of the feathers from the down.
  4. Make sure that the duvet covering is of superior quality. A down-proof 100% cotton ticking with 230 threads per inch is best. Some cheaper ticking has a low thread count disguised by smoothly pressed sizing or filler which soon disappears with use. The down will escape through this porous cotton. Some very high-thread-count ticking is too fine and wears through quickly.
  5. Make sure that the sections of your duvet are not too narrow or too small and thus confining. Check and see if the inner walls (baffles) are high enough to allow the down to fluff up or 'loft' from 3" to 12". The warmth from down results from its ability to 'loft' and fill with air. The more air that is trapped, the better the insulation and breathability.
  6. Be aware that duvets sewn in squares are not adjustable in any way. With squares, the down cannot be moved to one end during hot summer nights, for example. Also, the baffles around the squares will not be very high (often there is no height at all!), forcing the duvet flat. With long, high and wide tunnels, the down can circulate freely and breathe. If some centre squares flatten with extra use after a few years, they cannot be topped up with fresh down the way a duvet sewn with tunnels can.
  7. Duvets with Karo step (randomly stitched through with an 'X' or tiny circle) are not satisfactory either. Over time, the down will shift to one area and the tacked spots act as obstacles when you try to redistribute the down.
  8. Is your duvet fully washable and dryable in the dryer? Dry cleaning is not recommended.
  9. Does the size of your duvet fit standard North American-size beds and duvet covers?
  10. Be sure and buy from a trusted company that gives you a full guarantee. Be careful of very cheap, unbelievable sales. Superior-quality down is expensive , at least $50 per pound (16 oz). Some prices are too good to be true!
  11. Remember that a duvet is an investment. Buy excellent quality and it will last many, many years.

The Austrian Duvet     

Fabulous, Fat and Fluffy!

 

This fabulous, overstuffed, white goose down-filled duvet fluffs to over 12" high, just like the famous eiderdown we slept under in Europe. We have sewn in 12" high inner baffles (vertical walls) to help minimize shifting while allowing the down to "fly freely" for exceptional warmth and breathability. The down settles to about 8" of fullness. The white-coloured cover is 100% cotton with 230 threads to the inch , very down-proof, soft and long-wearing. This duvet is chosen by duvet connoisseurs who want the ultimate in warmth and coziness!

Austrian Duvet - Filled with 700+ Loft Canadian Grey Goose Down


Filled with 700+ Loft Canadian Grey Goose Down.  This goose is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America.  Canadian Wildlife Service allows hunters, Inuit and Native Canadians (Cree Indians) to hunt this species under strict rules, and only at specified times of year.  The Wild Canadian Goose is a protected Migratory Species of wild waterfowl, protected under the Migratory Birds Convention Act.  Although the fill power (or loft) is 700+, this down has a unique characteristic to it that is described as "stickiness".  The only other down to have this characteristic is Eiderdown.

This special ability of the down clusters to cling to itself, renders a lower fill power rating, but provides much more warmth, and is able to trap air better than higher fill power down.  This down is as warm or even warmer than those with 800+ fill power.

Austrian Duvet - Filled with 700+ Loft Canadian Eiderdown Duck Down


Currently Unavailable Filled with 700+ Loft Canadian Eider Duck Down. This Canadian Eider down is collected under very strict guidelines, and only in certain regions in Canada governed by permits and regulations for harvest. Harvesting the down does not harm the bird. The Common Eider duck in Canada is a protected species. The down is hand-harvested from the nest, not from the duck. This down has amazing cling, or stickiness. This is a very unique characteristic of Eider Duck Down that allows the down to cling, or stick to itself, which provides for the warmest down, since it will not clump. Similarly, this down has incredible breathability (it wicks moisture away from your body). It is also unique in that it can be compressed, and will regain original shape without being damaged-which means this down can stand the test of time, and last MANY years. Similar to the Arctic Grey Goose down, the filling power of this down is 700+ due to the clinginess, but the warmest and most luxurious down available worldwide.
