What Is Down?

Down duvets are known for their luxurious warmth and comfort, making them a popular choice for a cozy night's sleep. Down refers to the soft and fluffy clusters found beneath the feathers of ducks and geese. These clusters have excellent insulation properties, providing a lightweight and breathable filling for duvets. However, there are different types of down duvets based on the type of down used and their fill power. Let's explore some of the main types:

Hungarian Down Duvets

Hungarian Down is known for its exceptional quality and loftiness. It comes from geese that are raised in the colder climates of Hungary, and its high fill power provides outstanding warmth. Hungarian down duvets are considered some of the finest and most luxurious options available.

Siberian Down Duvets

Siberian down is harvested from geese living in the harsh climates of Siberia, resulting in down clusters with remarkable insulating properties. Siberian down duvets are known for their exceptional loft and warmth, making them an excellent choice for cold sleepers or winter use.

Eiderdown Duvets

Eiderdown comes from the Eider duck, and its unique properties make it highly sought after. Eiderdown is known for its extreme softness and warmth and is often considered the pinnacle of down duvets. Due to its scarcity, Eiderdown duvets are the most expensive option on the market.

Duck Down Duvets

Duck down duvets are also popular and offer warmth and comfort. While duck down clusters are smaller than goose down, they still provide effective insulation. Duck down duvets are usually more affordable than goose down duvets, making them a good choice for those seeking a quality duvet on a budget.

Goose Down Duvets

Goose down duvets are highly regarded for their superior quality and insulation. Goose down clusters are generally larger and have a higher fill power compared to duck down, which means they can trap more air and provide better warmth. Goose down duvets are considered a premium option providing the most warmth and comfort. Our Down duvet and pillow inserts are filled with European Goose Down feathers renowned for their natural large clusters, which provide toasty warmth, ultra-soft comfort, and long-lasting wispy light fluff that remains wash after wash. If you are looking for a less expensive option that gives off a similar warmth, try our Down Alternative duvet and pillow inserts filled with premium 100% Virtudown®, an exceptionally fluffy alternative fill whose loft mirrors the comforting texture and warmth of genuine goose down.
