Hutterite Goose Down Duvet
About This Product:
This duvet is made with care in Canada with Canadian fill. The shell is 400 thread count cotton – soft and quiet. The duvet is filled with 700 loft goose down farmed by Hutterites in Alberta, Canada. Down fill is soft and luxurious, made up of tiny, fluffy clusters. The fill is high loft, which means it is high quality and very warm per ounce. This is why you’ll find this duvet is very lightweight. Just a little bit of fill goes a long way in terms of warmth!
Opt for Regular Weight if your room temperature is around 19 – 21 degrees C or if you’re fairly warm when you sleep. All Season Weight is best if your room temperature is 16 – 18 degrees C or if you’re a cooler sleeper.

Questions & Answers
Have a Question?
I have been using blankets on top of my existing duvet and peeling them off through the night as I get warm. If I do this with one of your down duvets, will that crush the duvet and negatively impact its ability to keep me warm over time? And if that's the case and you advise using a blanket under the duvet, would that cancel out the duvet's breathability and ability to reduce night sweats when they happen?
The ideal situation is to purchase a duvet that can keep you warm enough on its own! This means you're getting the most performance from your duvet without compromising breathability. You're correct that a duvet has to be lofted up to its full potential to exercise its best insulating properties but that a blanket underneath reduces breathability. If you have to choose one of these options, the blanket underneath is the way to go! When you purchase a high quality duvet, what you're mainly paying for is the high loft, high performance down - you wouldn't want to hinder that performance if you can hlep it!
California King - It seems the XL King is the best option to cover a California King sized mattress to accommodate the length - are there duvet covers that will work with this sized comforter?
You're absolutely right! Many people believe Cali King is larger than King, but it's actually between Queen and King size, which makes XL Queen the best option. We do offer duvet covers in this size :)
Regular vs. All Season - what would you recommend for year round use in Toronto, ON where apartment winters can be cold and summers can be hot and humid?
It's tough to find a duvet that works well in both hot and cold temperatures. The duvet has a certain insulating ability, which doesn't change based on the ambient temp. If the temperature of your home fluctuates over the seasons, it's best to go with the lighter weight. It's much easier to add an extra blanket when it's cold than to use a duvet that's too hot!
Are geese killed to make these duvets? What happens to the rest of the goose once the feathers are removed?
Thank you for your question and for considering animal welfare - it's so important. Down and feather is a by-product of the meat industry collected post-mortem. It would otherwise go to the landfill. We are IDS and RDS certified to ensure the humane and ethical treatment of animals throughout our supply chain.
If it’s duck down then why does the label say white goose down duvet ??
Thanks for submitting a question! The Hutterite Goose Down Duvet is in fact a goose down duvet! It is filled with goose down, not duck down. The fill species is indicated in the product description.
What's the difference between this duvet and the Hutterite White Down Duvet?
The only difference is the species of the fill! The Hutterite Goose Down Duvet is filled with goose down and the Hutterite White Down Duvet is filled with duck down. Both of these duvets are made in Canada with 700 loft Hutterite down and 400 thread count cotton, and they are covered by the same warranty period. Click to Read more about goose vs duck.
I live in a 60-year-old building with single-pane windows, where heating is a suggestion and seldom a reality. Still, I feel I made a mistake by ordering the “All Season Weight “ in an attempt to determine which would best suit my needs. I realize the terms moderate and cooler are suggestive and an attempt to differentiate one from the other, but as others have said, adding a blanket may be a better way to go. That said, is there some way to alter the weight of my duvet?
You can certainly send your duvet back to us to have more fill added to make it warmer. You can request an alteration on our Alterations & Customizations page! Alternatively, you can purchase one of our Winter Weight duvets - you can see which duvets come in Winter on our Product Comparison Chart.
Why is all the down fill at the bottom of the duvet ? We fluff every day but it doesn’t make any difference.
I'm sorry you're experiencing that. We would love to take a closer look and see what the issue could potentially be. Please send us an email with pictures that display the problem to email@example.com and one of our agents would be happy to assist you.
Can you make a king down duvet half and half Light for menopause and other side for husband who is cold ?
This is not something we do currently, but will add it to our new product request list!
Would placing the duvet in a duvet cover hinder or damage it over time?
Thank you for reaching out with your question! Placing a duvet in a duvet cover does not damage or hinder it over time. It's actually the opposite! Duvet covers help protect duvets from environmental conditions that could contribute to dirtying or damage the duvet and its effectiveness. A breathable cover like our own are always recommended, to ensure proper heat regulation.

Any suggestions on where to get a duvet cover for the XL Queen? Doesn’t seem to be anyone offering a cover with those dimensions?
We sell an XL Queen duvet cover, which comes in a few colours! If you'd like to buy from somewhere else, there are other merchants that sell this size (or close to it) but it does take some searching, as unfortunately, there's no standard sizing across the industry. We can help you with your Google search if you send us an email :)
What is the approximate ratio of goose down compared to goose feather in the duvet ( such as 90% down & 10% feather ). I do not see it mentioned in any product information.
There is no feather in this duvet! Only goose down :)
