This duvet should be used with a duvet or comforter cover at all times. Failure to do so will cause premature wear and invalidate the warranty.
A properly covered duvet will eliminate the need for a top sheet. This keeps bed-making to a minimum and allows you to enjoy the light, cozy feeling of your duvet.
Prior to use, shake the duvet vigorously to help fluff up the down. It will take about 1 week of use before the outer fabric softens up and the down lofts up to its full potential.
There may be a slight odour as a result of having been stored in the packaging, but it will disappear within the first week of use.
Take your down duvet outdoors periodically and air it. This helps maintain its freshness, fluffiness and insulating qualities.
This product should be stored in a dry and well-ventilated closet or room when not in use in order to prevent mildew growth.
* A properly maintained duvet should only require cleaning after five to ten years, if at all.
* Your duvet is covered in 100% cotton and filled with natural down. It will shrink if washed, possibly causing puckering in the stitching and loss of the filling.
* Should your comforter need cleaning, have it DRY CLEANED or PROFESSIONALLY WASHED by a reputable cleaner that specializes in cleaning down and/or feather products.
* DO NOT attempt to machine wash or dry clean this product yourself. If the filling stays even slightly damp, the down will clump together and may allow mildew growth.
* Small spots or stains may be removed by holding the fabric away from the filling and using warm water and mild soap. To dry, use a hair dryer on low heat.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
My old duvet has the softest cover no need for a duvet cover, how soft are your best coverings?
The higher the thread count, the softer the fabric! The highest thread count we carry is 500, which is really soft and luxurious. However, using a duvet cover is recommended to protect the duvet from dirt, dust, body oils and sweat, which can degrade the product over time! High quality down duvets shouldn't be washed at home and must be dry cleaned or professionally washed. Using a cover minimizes the number of times the product has to be cleaned and increases its lifespan.

What's the difference between this duvet and the Hutterite Goose Down Duvet?
There are two main differences between these products. This duvet is made with higher loft down (850 vs 700 loft), which means the down is higher overall quality. It's also made with higher thread count fabric (500 vs 400), which means the fabric is softer and quieter. The Hutterite Goose Down Duvet is excellent quality to begin with - quite soft and very high performance. So while this duvet is marginally more luxurious, I would give the Hutterite Goose Down Duvet serious consideration as well!

If I want the luxury super puffy look what duvet cover should I purchase? We recently purchased the 850 loft goose down duvet in XL King. I had read going to a smaller size duvet cover gives puffier look.
We recommend buying the same size cover as your duvet! It's true that buying a smaller cover will give a puffier look, but you don't want to go too small - otherwise it will create a lot of noticeable bunching. If you want to go undersized, it's best to find a cover that is only a few inches smaller than the duvet.
is the fill 100% goose down or part feather and part down?
It is actually illegal to advertise a product as 100% down! Our down products feel like all down, but they're actually not. A down product is never 100% down. In order to label it a down product, it has to be at least 75% down. Higher end products, like the Hutterite, are likely around 85-90% down, but it's not possible to determine the exact percentage in every product. The remaining percentage can be made up of down filaments, feathers, feather filaments, etc.Here is some additional information: https://www.canadiandownandfeather.com/pages/pure-vs-blends
My bed is a California king. Do you have duvets in black cal king?
California King is the same as our XL Queen size (between Queen and King size)! All of our down duvets and duvet covers come in XL Queen :) Our duvets are made with a white cotton shell and are meant to go inside a duvet cover. There are lots of black duvet covers on the market, but we don't offer that colour currently.
I would like to know the highest loft count I can purchase. I would like a fairly heavy count, and pricing as well.
The highest loft we carry is 850, so you're at the right page! However, I think some clarity is needed around what loft means. Loft is the measure of down quality. The higher the loft, the higher the quality, and the more powerful the insulating properties! Higher loft down actually makes for lighter duvets - the down is so warm per ounce, that just a little bit of fill goes a long way. If you're looking for a heavier duvet, try a lower loft duvet. The fill is not as powerful, so more fill is needed to achieve the desired warmth.
If by heavy you're referring to warmth level, you'll want to consider the warmth rating (Summer, Regular, All Season, Winter), rather than the loft. Down of any loft can be used to create duvets of any warmth level.
In terms of pricing, simply select your desired size and warmth level from the dropdown menus on the product page and you'll see the pricing automatically update.
What are the dimensions of the Hutterite 850. King size quilt?

I'm looking to replace a single duvet on a queen size bed with two - Scandinavian style. Will two twin duvets work or should I order two double size?
Queen mattresses are about 60" x 80". Most European style duvets that are used 2 side-by-side are smaller than twin size. Twin duvets are 64" x 86"! So Twin might be too large for what you're looking for, but should work functionally. But I would definitely not consider Double!
I ordered the 850 Loft Hutterite Goose Down Duvet in size King XL and am currently searching for a duvet cover that will properly fit the 110" X 100" dimensions. I can't seem to find any manufacturer who make covers with these measurements though. I'm wondering if you may have a recommendation?
We've just launched duvet covers today (November 18th!) They are designed to fit our products precisely :) Since the founding of our company, we've put all of our focus and attention on down and feather products and really tried to specialize in those. And while there are covers out there that match our sizes, we understand it takes a lot of searching, as there's no standard sizing across the industry. We hope you love this new product and that it makes the purchase experience a bit easier!!
What are the baffle dimensions? Do your duvets carry the DOWNMARK label?
Baffles are the vertical inner walls, which create the 3 dimensional space for the down to loft up to its full potential. The baffles are about 1.5" high. If you're referring to the boxes, they're about 12" x 12". We are not a member of the Down Association club, so our products do not carry that label! We've opted for the IDS and RDS certifications instead, because they are far more rigorous and stringent, and are audited for / awarded by an independent body.
