Choosing the Right Duvet: A Guide to Fill Power, Fill Weight, and Shell Material

When it comes to duvet shopping, the sheer number of options available can be as overwhelming as deciding between a unicorn-themed or a galaxy-themed bedroom. Fret not, for we are here to help you unravel the mysteries of fill power, fill weight, and shell material. In no time, you'll be snuggling up in a cozy, cloud-like duvet that offers the perfect balance of fluffiness and insulation. Let's get down to the nitty-gritty (or rather, the down and fluffy)!

Fill Power: The Puff That Makes the Fluff

Fill power, aka loft, refers to the fluffiness of the down in a duvet. As a general rule, the higher the fill power, the loftier the down, and the more your duvet will resemble a giant marshmallow - in terms of insulation, of course. Higher fill power equals optimal warmth, all while being lighter and more breathable.

Fill power ranges from 400 to 900, but we only dabble in the 600 to 900 fill power zone. Why? Because we believe in giving you the most luxurious sleep experience with the ultimate level of fluffiness, warmth, and lightness. But wait, there's more! Fill weight is the next key factor in your duvet decision-making.

Fill Weight: The Goldilocks Principle

Fill weight refers to the amount of content (down, feather, wool and silk, bamboo, wool, and microfiber fibers) used in a duvet. The higher the fill weight, the warmer the duvet will be. In other words, more fill equals more thrill!

Our fill weight options include Summer, All Season, Winter, and Winter+. If you're the type who prefers a duvet that doesn't smother you in warmth, the Summer or All Season weights are perfect. On the other hand, if you're a polar bear at heart or you live in a climate that rivals the Arctic, the Winter or Winter+ weights are your go-to choices.

Now that you've got the fill power and fill weight sorted, let's wrap things up with the shell material.

Shell Material: The Icing on the Cake

The shell material is the outer layer that cuddles the down filling. Our shells are made of 100% cotton, percale or sateen, and are as soft as a kitten's belly. With thread counts ranging from 240 to 500, our down-proof, breathable, and durable shells ensure that you're swaddled in sheer luxury.

All our Canadian-made down-filled duvets boast a baffle box construction, which keeps the content evenly distributed and prevents cold spots. Trust us, the last thing you want is a duvet that feels like a patchwork quilt of warmth and cold. We'll take a baffle box over a box-stitched duvet any day!

In conclusion, the secret to selecting the perfect duvet lies in understanding Fill Power, Fill Weight, and Shell Material. By considering these factors, you'll find a duvet that's like your very own magic carpet, whisking you away to dreamland with the perfect balance of warmth and comfort. Sweet dreams!
