We all want a comfortable night’s sleep and what duvet you are using can really affect this. Our sleep experts know all the considerations that go into purchasing the correct duvet, such as tog rating and filling choices, which can make this task all the more daunting. Whether or not you have considered swapping out your duvet or are in the market for a new one, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we will be rating our top luxury duvets as well as discussing the difference between the fillings, feather and down.
Difference Between Feather and Down Duvet
You may have heard of both feather and down duvets, but what is the difference between the two? The type of filling used is all down to where it’s found on the goose or duck.
The feathers of these birds are extremely soft and are typically larger and much heavier than the down. As well as this, the shape of the feathers is also generally longer and more flat, meaning that you will have to use more feathers to fill a duvet than down.
The ‘Down’ of a duck or goose is the soft under plumage which keeps the bird warm and dry. This acts as a layer of insulation, which goes beneath the feathers and is typically much fluffier and comes in small clusters.
You will find that duvets can be filled with either feathers or down as each gives a different effect and level of comfort. Down clusters have a natural spring back, which makes them a more supportive choice, as well as acting as a better insulator. Whereas a feather duvet is great for offering a more breathable filling. If you are someone who gets warm during the night, then having a duvet such as one filled with goose down could not be the best option. Swapping out your regular duvet for a feather one could be a great solution to keeping you cool throughout the night.
