Offrez Chaleur Et Confort En Cette Période De Fêtes

Les gens pensent souvent à tort que le duvet et les plumes sont la même chose. En réalité, ils sont très différents. Dans cet article, nous présentons les principales différences entre ces types de remplissage.

La présentation

Le duvet est la sous-couche soyeuse des oies et canards. Il se présente en grappes de légers filaments duveteux rayonnant d'un point central. Un filament forme une structure tridimensionnelle ressemblant à une cosse de pissenlit.

La plume est faite de la couche extérieure du plumage des oiseaux. La plume se définit par une tige rigide portant des fibres qui s'étendent des deux côtés.

Le loft

Le loft est la mesure du pouvoir gonflant du duvet et il indique du même coup son niveau de qualité global. Le loft ne se mesure pas avec la plume.

Le poids et la chaleur du duvet

Dans les couettes, le duvet offre la meilleure capacité d'isolation au pouce carré, plus que tout autre remplissage, synthétique ou naturel. Le duvet procure plus de chaleur au pouce cube que la plume. C'est pourquoi les couettes de plume contiennent beaucoup plus de remplissage et sont plus lourdes que les couettes de duvet. Elles nécessitent plus de remplissage pour obtenir le même niveau d'isolation et de chaleur.

Le support de l'oreiller

Dans un oreiller, le duvet procure un support minimal du cou et de la tête. Les oreillers de plume procurent quant à eux un support plus ferme, dû à l'élasticité des tiges de la plume.

Rareté et prix

Le duvet est plus cher que la plume. Sa texture soyeuse et ses excellentes propriétés isolantes en font un matériau plus prisé par les consommateurs. Le duvet est aussi plus rare. Chaque oiseau porte une quantité plus élevée de plumes que de duvet.

Hi Krista, the White Down Duvet is filled with duck down. I hope this helps! :)

Canadian Down and Feather Company 24 septembre 2019

Hi, can you tell me is your down made of duck or goose? I’m specifically looking at the regular weight white down duvet. Thanks

Krista 24 septembre 2019

Hi Kim, Our most popular duvet is the Hutterite Goose Down Duvet (purple packaging). It’s light, lofty and warm!

Canadian Down & Feather Co. 21 novembre 2018

I’m looking for a fluffy nice warm duvet. Recommendations?

Yah, Diane, in full flight . . .

Hi Domanique, Without knowing too many details, I’d recommend the Down Perfect Pillow in Medium. The feather in the middle provides great support, while the down in the outer chambers provides softness. The Medium weight should provide enough support for side sleeping, but not so much support that you’ll be uncomfortable on your stomach. We can always work with you to adjust the pillow by adding or removing fill after you’ve tried it out! I hope this helps :)

I have major joint issues (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) and need pillows that can support me yet be soft enough that my joints aren’t at awful angles while I toss about during my sleep. What is your recommendation? (I fall asleep on my front/side, but that all goes out the window once I’m asleep haha) x

Hi Anne,

You’re absolutely right! Our heaviest duvets are White Goose Feather, Microfiber and Gel Microfiber. Perfect for those that like a weighty blanket! :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company 25 septembre 2018

Just to make sure I am understanding your information properly. I plan to buy a duvet as a gift for my daughter who likes a heavy layer of blankets. It is not warmth that is an issue, (she has a heated mattress pad for that) but the weight of the covers that she likes. Would I be correct to think that a feather duvet would be more likely to suit her than a down one?

Hi Carryl,
That depends on the product! For example, our White Goose Feather Duvet is filled with imported feather, where our Hutterite Goose Down Duvet is filled with down farmed by the Hutterites in Alberta, Canada. If you have a question about the fill of a particular product, feel free to email or chat us :)

Canadian Down & Feather Co. 21 septembre 2018

Do you use domestic Canadian birds or foreign birds?

Carryl 21 septembre 2018

Hi Jacquie, Thank you so much for asking! All of the down and feather we use is a by-product of the meat industry that would otherwise go to the landfill. We have zero tolerance for live-plucking as well as other inhumane practices, such as force-feeding, over-crowding and neglect. We’re happy to discuss any of this with you in further detail – just shoot us an email! :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company 30 juillet 2018

Could you please tell me how the down is harvested? I’ve heard some very disturbing things about the process.

Jacquie 30 juillet 2018

Hi Lynn,

I would recommend the White Goose Down Pillow or the Hutterite Goose Down Pillow in soft or medium. It’s important that front sleepers don’t use too firm a pillow, so these options are soft and sinky. If you sleep only on your front, you may want the soft. If you sleep occasionally on your side or back as well, medium is best! I hope this helps! :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company 18 avril 2018

What would be the best down pillow for a front sleeper?

Lynn 18 avril 2018

Hi Tom, Great question! While it is normal to see the occasional feather or piece of down come out, down and feather should not leak out. The fabric of the shell must be 233 thread count or higher to retain down and feather, and you’ll notice we don’t use fabric under 233 TC. That being said, if you do find an unexpected amount of down or feather is leaking out, please let us know, and we’ll replace the product for you. I hope this helps! :)

will the quills go threw the outer shell

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks so much for your comment. Generally, side sleepers need a lot of support. I would recommend the Down Perfect Pillow in Medium. It has a feather core which provides great support, surrounded by soft down. The Medium version should provide enough support for side sleeping, but shouldn’t be too firm for back sleeping. I hope this helps!

Canadian Down & Feather Company 04 décembre 2017

Hi. I’m a side sleeper and sometimes back . I have bit of arthritis in neck so wondering which pillow would be best . I presently have a feather pillow which has been great but have had it 10 years and think time to replace . Could you recommend which pillow would be best . I’m worried down might be to soft? Maybe I need medium pillow for support for neck ?

Jennifer 02 décembre 2017

Hi Audrey,

I’m so sorry to hear about your injury. I sent you an email with some duvet recommendations. Let me know what you think.

Canadian Down & Feather Company 24 novembre 2017

I love your Duvets! I just can’t afford a new one right now. I am a registered nurse for 27 years and was very badly injured and have been off work now for 3&1/2 years,& still doing physiology,& cortisone treatments every 4 months or so. I’m wondering do you have contests? Is that what the voucher # is about.?
