Goose Down Duvet vs White Down Duvet: What Are The Differences?

Goose Down Duvet vs White Down Duvet: What Are The Differences?

When it comes to choosing the perfect duvet for a comfortable and restful night’s sleep, the options can be overwhelming. We are here to guide you on making the right purchase and most importantly, we just want you to sleep comfortably with our amazing duvet. Two of the most popular choices are goose and white down duvets. White down duvets are also known as regular white duck down duvets. Both are known for their warmth, comfort, and sophisticated natural insulation properties. However, there are some important differences between the two that you should consider before making your decision. In this blog, we’ll explore the key differences between goose and down duvets to help you make the best choice for your needs.

Fill Power And Insulation

Fill power refers to the loft or fluffiness of the down, which directly correlates with its insulation capabilities. You can read more in this blog, Choosing the Right Duvet: A Guide to Fill Power, Fill Weight, and Shell Material. Goose down generally has a high fill power compared to duck down, resulting in a warmer and fluffier duvet. The large goose down clusters trap more air, providing better insulation and breathability than the regular duck down clusters. Both goose and duck down can reach over 800 fill power.

Price And Availability

Goose down duvets are typically more expensive than their duck counterparts due to their higher fill power, better insulation properties, and less common availability. If you’re looking for affordability, a regular white duck down duvet could be the way to go. If you are looking for more luxurious and better warmth, goose down is the right path to take.

Social Responsibility

We have been a proud board member of the Down Association of Canada (DAC) since 1994 and we prioritize ethical and sustainable practices. All of our down are Responsible Down Standards (RDS) and down-filled duvets are DOWNMARK certified. These certifications ensure that the down is sourced ethically and sustainably, and the products meet the highest quality standards. We also ensure that our down products are traceable from the farm to the finished product.

In conclusion, while both goose and duck down duvets offer warmth and comfort, there are several key differences between them including fill power, insulation, price and availability. When choosing between these two types of duvets, consider your personal preferences, budget, and the climate in which you live. By keeping these factors in mind, you can find the perfect duvet to ensure a cozy and restful night’s sleep.
