FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE DUCK DOWN BEDDING?
Duck down is the fluffy undercoating that provides warmth for ducks which are 3D clusters of very fine fibres with no quill shaft between them. This makes them lighter and loftier than feathers, offering a super soft and lightweight feel of duvet. Duck down is widely recognised as the worlds best insulator as it forms air pockets that keep warmth in and cold air out. A natural product, down has a great ability to wick away moisture. It allows water vapour to pass right through it, keeping you comfortable as you sleep without the clamminess that is often felt with synthetic bedding.
