Choisir la bonne couette

La couette universelle n’existe pas.

C'est pourquoi je souhaite vous simplifier la procédure d'achat en liant les spécifications des produits à vos besoins et préférences personnels, pour que vous sachiez exactement quoi rechercher.

Plongeons dans le vif du sujet!

À quel point voulez-vous que votre couette soit chaude? Si vous dormez dans des températures tropicales, il est préférable d'opter pour une couette légère, de poids Été. Si vous faites partie de ces gens qui ont toujours froid ou si vous aimez baisser le chauffage la nuit, choisissez une couette en duvet Toutes saisons ou Hiver.

LE POIDS
Vous aimez la sensation de dormir sous une lourde couverture? Vous pourriez de rechercher une couette remplie de plumes ou de Microfibre. Ces types de remplissage n'ont pas de grandes propriétés isolantes, donc ces couettes en contiennent beaucoup et sont bien plus lourdes. Le duvet retient beaucoup de chaleur par once, il faut donc moins de remplissage pour atteindre le niveau de chaleur souhaité. Si vous préférez une couette légère, la couette en duvet est idéale!

Si vous prévoyez que votre couette nécessitera un nettoyage fréquent, recherchez un remplissage synthétique, comme la Microfibre. Ces couettes peuvent être lavées à la machine au besoin. Les couettes remplies de duvet et/ou de plumes naturelles doivent être nettoyées à sec ou lavées par un professionnel.

CONTEXTURE (fils/po carrés)
Plus le nombre de fils est élevé, plus l'extérieur d'une couette sera doux et silencieux. Bien que le bruit ne soit pas un facteur décisif pour la plupart des gens, si vous êtes très sensible au son, vous pourriez vouloir éviter les enveloppes extérieures à faible nombre de fils, plus bruyantes.

BUDGET

Le duvet est le type de remplissage le plus coûteux (plus d'informations à ce sujet ici). Si vous avez un budget serré, recherchez des couettes en duvet synthétique ou en plumes. Si vous voulez une couette en duvet plus abordable, pensez à une couette en duvet de canard ou à un mélange de duvet et de plumes. Si vous souhaitez faire des folies, gâtez-vous avec une luxueuse couette en duvet d'oie.

Avant de magasiner une couette, prenez le temps de réfléchir à ce qui est important pour vous et de définir votre budget. Cela vous aidera à orienter votre recherche et à trouver une couette qui répondra bien à vos besoins et à votre style de vie!

APPARENCE

Je vous encourage à ne pas trop vous attarder sur l'apparence de votre couette. Il est important d'utiliser une housse de couette en tout temps, afin que votre insert ne soit pas visible (sauf le jour de la lessive!).

Hi Dianne, You can find our product features and specifications on every product page. All of our duvets come with corner loops to suit duvet covers with ties! You can find our product dimensions on every product page and on our Standard Dimensions page. The best size for your cover would be XL Queen. I wouldn’t recommend getting a super fluffy duvet in this case. The more fill we add to a duvet, the fluffier it becomes, but also the warmer it becomes! A very fluffy duvet will be too hot for the person who sleeps warm. It’s generally best to cater to the warmer sleeper, as it’s easier for the cooler sleeper to add an extra blanket as needed.

Looking to buy a queen size duvet that will look fluffy but will also address two sleepers who sleep hot and cold. No heat on in bedroom. Also, correct size to fit a 92×96 duvet cover with insides ties for anchoring.

Hi Anne, 1. Higher thread count doesn’t really = denser fabric. Higher thread count fabric does have more threads per sq in, but each thread is thinner. Lower thread count has thicker threads but fewer threads. So the density is roughly equivalent. All of the fabric we use is down and feather-proof, meaning it meets a minimum standard for down-proofness. However, for fabrics that meet this minimum, there is variation in how well/tightly the threads interlock. It just so happens that the thread thickness (decitex) and number of threads in 233TC fabric allows for really tight interlocking, compared to the decitex used in a higher TC. The higher TC is still meets the criteria for being down-proof and preventing leakage, but the interlocking is quite as perfect. 2. Lower thread count does contribute to noise, as does the type of weave. For example a twill weave is always noisier than a sateen weave. 3. Feathers are not as delicate as down, due to their springy, resilient quills. It’s not generally advisable to sleep on top of any duvet – they’re fairly delicate products that won’t hold up well to that kind of use. But if you do plan to sleep on one, a feather one will provide more support and cushioning…but you will be able to feel the quills beneath the fabric. Down duvets are more soft-feeling, but will flatten down completely with the weight of the body. I hope this helps! – Heather

1. Shouldn’t duvets with feathers (due to their quills) have a higher thread count, i.e. denser fabric to keep them in? Your feather + feather-down mix duvets have lower or same thread counts as the solely-down ones.
2. Does a lower thread count automatically result in a noisier duvet or are there other factors? (Interestingly, US sources say the higher the TC, the quieter, whereas German ones say the exact opposite.)
3. Are feathers as delicate as down, as one shouldn’t sleep on down duvets? I like to sometimes sleep either completely or half-way on top of my duvet and wonder if the higher amount of feathers in a mixed or pure-feather duvet would keep it from getting too smashed.

Hi Alex, That’s a tough one! Fluffiness and warmth go hand in hand. The more fill we add to a duvet the fluffier it becomes, and the warmer it becomes! Winter Weight is our warmest and fullest/fluffiest weight, but it will be far too hot for you. You may want to go with a Regular Weight or Summer Weight duvet. These are not the fluffiest versions of our duvets, but I suppose you’ll want to think about what’s more important to you – appearance or function!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 18 janvier 2021

Hi Eve, Loft is the measure of down quality. The higher the loft, the higher the quality! It will not affect the warmth or fluffiness of the duvet. For warmth level, you’ll want to check the warmth rating. If two duvets have the same warmth rating, they are the same warmth level. All Season is one of our warmth ratings. I wouldn’t recommend All Season Weight if you run hot. All Season is best for cooler sleepers or cooler room temperatures. You may want to opt for Regular Weight or Summer Weight. You can see which duvets come in which weights in the Product Comparison Chart!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 18 janvier 2021

Hello, I have often been hot while sleeping and are looking for a duvet accordingly. We would like to have a duvet that is not too thin and not too light, which product do you recommend?

Alex 18 janvier 2021

thank you so much for responding to my previous question- your answers were helpful. i am looking now at getting an all season weight duck down duvet and im wondering how to make the decision between a 600, 650 or 700 loft? i want it to be light feeling and pouffy/fluffy looking and i also run a bit hot when sleeping. do you think it matters which loft i pick?

Eve 18 janvier 2021

Hi Eve, For a light and fluffy duvet, you’ll want to look at a down duvet! Down is very insulating per ounce so just a little bit of fill goes a long way. This is why you’ll find down duvets lightweight compared to duvets filled with microfiber or feather. Fluffiness and warmth tend to go hand in hand. The more fill we add to a duvet, the fluffier it becomes and also the warmer it becomes! You’ll find that the All Season Weight and Winter Weight down duvets are the fluffiest variants!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 04 décembre 2020

I am looking for something on the lighter side as well as puffy looking.
at the moment i have a gel filled duvet that is very heavy (i tend to run hot so I take the blanket off and on during the night and it feels like I’m lifting a corpse every time!). the gel one also sits quite flat and i don’t like the look of it when the bed is made. I would like something that looks puffier and feels light and fluffy to touch. thanks in advance.

Hi Rose-Marie, If your room is warm, I recommend Regular Weight! Check out the blue image on this blog post…it shows the recommended temperature range for each weight. All Season Weight contains more fill than Regular Weight, and therefore it is warmer!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 06 juillet 2020

I don’t understand very well the difference between regular weight and all season weight, so I can’t choose my duvet.
My room is warm , even in winter, and I want to use my duvet all year around.could you explain me what to choose.Thanks.

Rose-Marie Tasseroul 06 juillet 2020

Hi Michelle, Queen size is 88″ × 90″, while XL Queen size is 96″ × 98″. You can find dimensions listed on our Standard Dimensions page (in the FAQ menu) or on the Specifications tab on any product page :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company 14 janvier 2020

What is the difference in size for Queen and XLQueen?

Michelle 14 janvier 2020

Hi Bernard, Thanks for your question! You certainly could try! Two twin duvets will make a combined width of 128", which is 40" wider than one queen duvet. I do know some customers who use two duvets and really like it! There will just be some extra overhang.

Canadian Down & Feather Company 09 novembre 2019

We have a queen bed and are interested in trying out two twin duvets like we have seen travelling in Europe. Do you think that could work on a Queen or do you think we would need a king bed? Have you had other customers try this idea on a queen.

Hoping to never fight over the sheets again.

Bernard 08 novembre 2019

Hi Kathleen, The All Season Weight is not much bulkier, no. You can see how the fill weight differs by clicking ‘Specifications’ on the product page. The All Season will only have a few more ounces of fill, and should compress for travel similarly to the Regular Weight. Down is very insulating per ounce, so a little bit goes a long way!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 04 octobre 2019

I would like to travel with my duvet, but I am also a cold sleeper. Is the all-season much more bulky than the regular duvet?

Kathleen 30 septembre 2019

Hi Jennifer,

For a year-round duvet that’s not too hot, I’d go with Regular Weight! The Hutterite Goose Down Duvet is our most popular one. Feel free to email us if you have additional questions! :)

Canadian Down and Feather Company 24 septembre 2019

Hi,
Looking for recommended Duvet -
Looking to use year round. King Size. We tend to sleep hot so constantly kicking blankets on and off.
Hope this Helps.

Jennifer 24 septembre 2019

Hi Aurel & Valerie,

We sell duvet inserts that are meant to be used inside of duvet covers! Duvet covers are available in many different colours, patterns and styles! :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company 21 novembre 2018

I would buy one but you have them in white,Why not colours.?

Aurel.Godard@kapuskasing.ca 21 novembre 2018

I would like to buy a coloured duvet……it seems you haven’t any.

Valerie Godard 21 novembre 2018

Hi Joan, I guess that depends on what you’re comparing it to! You can check fill weight of a product by clicking on the ‘Specifications’ tab (next to ‘Description’ on the product page!

How much heavier is the gel duvet?
