Siberian Duvets

Siberian Duvets

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.

Siberian Goose Down PillowsYou can be rest assured that the duvets and pillows we supply have down from European farms and are second to none in terms of wildlife and ecological protection.

Our duvets and Siberian Pillows have the most expensive fillings, like Siberian goose down. Manufacturers like to go one step further and give the outer cover a more luxurious feel.

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.

Our Siberian duvets are made in the UK so you can be assured of a luxury product that is made correctly.

  • Summer duvet: 4.5 tog
  • Spring / Autumn: 10.5 tog
  • Winter: 13.5 tog
  • All seasons: 9 + 4.5 tog that clip together

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.

International standards

Conforming to British and European standards of quality, all of the down they use in the duvets and pillows can be traced back to its original source and farm in Canada and Hungary, this ensures that the down is not mixed with an inferior goose down which can happen if such stringent controls are not in place.

As you will never open the duvet how can you tell if the down inside comes from the country of origin. Do you just take their word for it or do you buy from a leading brand like Die Zudecke that conforms to European legislation and the company is constantly audited to ensure that they do not cut any corners and sell inferior products that are not as described.

Die Zudecke care for the environment, every product conforms to Oxy Tex 100 standards.

This strict environmental test ensures that no harmful chemicals such as chlorine, formaldehyde and metal dye are used when they produce and clean the down and the superior cotton cambric cases. Each product also confirms to the NOMITE mark.

This is peace of mind for anyone who is allergic to the house dust mite. The feathers and down used are not habitable places for such mites due to their thermal and climatic conditions.

The properties of this filling create a rapid heating up while the person is sleeping and a decrease in the bed’s humidity – not a place for a dust mite.

So if you are looking for premium quality duvet or pillow that will last well over ten years and is guaranteed to be eco friendly and anti allergy and still give you the best sleeping experience you have ever had, with such a great price, buy a Die Zudecke Hungarian or Canadian goose down one, you will not be disappointed.
