Q: How to choose a good down duvet?

A: First and foremost, be sure that the products you're purchasing have been approved by the Down Association (in Canada it's DownMark and the label will be sewn into the product.) This ensures that the manufacturer is accurately stating the contents of their products on their labels. Of course, all of our products are certified, so when we say 'pure white goose down', you know that's exactly what you'll be getting.

1. The shell should be a high enough thread count to prevent noisy crunching. We recommend anything above 400 Thread Count, preferably in a cotton satin. The softer the shell, the more light and airy the duvet will be.

2. The construction should be baffle box (not channels) to prevent clumping.

3. Choose pure white goose down with a loft of 550+. The amount of down fill (in ounces) is a personal preference. If you are typically hot when you sleep, choose a light or ultra light weight. If you're usually cold, you may prefer the regular weight depending on the quality of the down. We indicate our recommendations for each of our duvets on their product page. See our Size Chart and Down Products 101 page for more information.
