In How Tos, Inspiration

Investing in a new duvet inner is a big purchase. It is something you will use every night for years to come, which can make the buying process feel like a big deal. If you’re not sure which duvet inner is best for you, go through our guide to find out a bit more about the different types of duvets and their benefits. 

Natural fill vs synthetic fill 

Natural vs synthetic is a personal choice that comes down to preference, use and price. Natural duvet inners are usually more expensive while synthetics are more affordable and are preferred by allergy sufferers.

Down and Feather Duvets

Down is a feather filling gathered from the soft undercoat of geese and ducks. It is an amazing natural insulator and offers temperature regulation for the perfect warmth. 

Down and feather duvets are a classic choice that offer quality comfort. These duvets are an investment that will last for years with proper care. Feather fills are lightweight, luxurious and provide warmth through all seasons. 

The down difference:

Goose Down duvets:

  • Great natural insulator
  • Down clusters are big which fill more space
  • Extremely lightweight feel due to lower volume of feathers 
  • Great for summer and winter
  • Durable and long-lasting

Duck Down duvets: 

  • Duck down clusters are slightly smaller than goose down requiring more fill. 
  • Lightweight but a bit heavier than goose down
  • Offers good insulation making it great for winter

Some duvets include a mix of feathers and down while some are pure down filled. Feathers offer weight while down is lightweight, a blend of the two offering the perfect balance of weight and warmth. The inclusion of feathers often makes an inner more affordable while pure down is a premium option.
