Make it last
Our duvet is 100% natural. The casing is organic and no chemicals have been used during the cleaning of the eiderdown.
For your duvet to have a happy and long life, that which we all wish and hope for, we would like to share some words of advice on duvet care.
In the morning, turn the warm side of your duvet up and let it cool off after the night. This allows it to release the damp it has absorbed overnight from your body.
Air your duvet outside in dry weather for 15-30 minutes. This helps minimize dust and keep the eiderdown airy.
To the extent possible, minimize moisture in the room where you keep your eiderdown duvet, e.g., avoid drying your laundry there. Also, try to avoid lying on top of your eiderdown duvet–frequent and extended compression is tough on the delicate and airy eiderdown.
We strongly advice against machine washing of the eiderdown duvet. However, if cleaning is absolutely necessary, we recommend professional gentle machine washing in a spacious machine at max 40°C with a small amount high-quality down soap. After washing, it is important to fully dry the eiderdown duvet in a tumble drier on a gentle program with a couple of tennis balls to fluff it up. Overall, it is important that the eiderdown maintain their natural oils, as the oils keep the down elastic and extend the duvet’s lifespan.
If cared for properly, an eiderdown duvet can last for decades. It is not uncommon that eiderdown duvets are passed down as heirlooms in Iceland. We hope that by adopting these simple guidelines, you and your duvet will have a long and happy companionship.
