Siberian duvets are now one of the most popular duvets in the UK.
Due to the nature of Siberian goose down it is more effective than other pure down duvets as it can insulate and release stored heat much more effectively and will keep you much warmer in winter.
You need much less filling to keep you snug whilst you sleep resulting in lighter duvet which is essential for that all important good night’s sleep.
For sheer luxury you cannot buy a better duvet but make sure you look for ones where the down is sourced using the best farms in Europe whilst environmental and diligent industrial processes ensure that the birds are looked after and the down is farmed responsibly.
But remember European manufactures have to adhere to strict farming and environmental policies whereas a company outside of the EU does not have such strict penalties imposed on them for breaking the rules.
Goose down and the environment
Goose down is also an environmentally friendly choice. The International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory notes that Down and feathers:
- have the lowest carbon footprint of any other fill material, both natural and synthetic.
- is quickly biodegradable
- allows you to lower the thermostat at night while you sleep
How Siberian duvet down is prepared
The down is steam cleaned to ensure a light fluffy filling that has not been bleached or washed in caustic sodas to make it appear whiter. Siberian pure goose down is actually off white and slightly grey in appearance.
If the down in your duvet is optically white than it has been treated using harmful chemicals that change the colour of the down and reduce its effectiveness making it become brittle which will fall into smaller particles over time.
Our Siberian duvet collections
Our Siberian Duvets have a fill power rating of 815, the higher this number the better, it gives you the guarantee of a clean and natural filling. Remember a good quality down is both light and fluffy and is good at insulation are well as temperature control so choose the best pure down duvets that do not have any feathers mixed in them.
Our selections of premium duvets all have a 300 thread count cotton cover that is mite proof.
The tight weave also ensures that the filling does not leak out like you can sometimes get with feather and down duvets.
Also look for cassette construction and internal baffle walls, another sign of a well constructed and quality duvet. Country of origin is essential when buying your duvet but also the manufacturing company is equally important.

Caring for your Siberian duvet
Look after your Siberian duvet by covering it in a good quality machine washable duvet cover, we recommend Egyptian cotton sheets with a 400 thread count as they are on par in terms of luxury and quality.
The choice is yours but down duvets do not need to be washed or dry cleaned if you change the cover at least once a week. All you need to do after this is give it a good shake once a month just to get some air back into the filling and revitalise the down.
