organic cotton & kapok duvet - winter
Organic cotton percale outer with pure plant fibres of half organic cotton and half kapok filling.
This is a fluffy and silky feeling duvet similar in its feel to feathers. (Kapok is a light-weight, hollow fibre often referred to as 'plant down'.) Great for people who want the luxurious feel of down without using animal feather/fibre materials.
This is a warm duvet suitable for cooler seasons or for those who feel the cold easily. Great for people who like a plant-fibre duvet with good volume and drape. This is a warm, more voluminous duvet suitable for cooler homes or seasons. It consists of two lighter inner layers sewn together adding an insulating air pocket. This offers extra warmth without the weight.

Kapok contains naturally occurring bitter-compounds in its fibres. These make this material unattractive to dust mites and other creepy crawlies. Kapok fibres are naturally coated with a type of wax which means they retain no moisture therefore helping your duvet to stay dry. The Kapok tree grows wild in tropical forests without the need for any pesticides. They are vital for the local economies which is why they are not felled and hence help with preserving tropical forests.
Duvets are equipped with cotton ties on the corners which allow them to be combined with other duvets for extra weight and warmth. The quilting pattern gives the duvet a lovely drape so it can better 'envelope' the sleeper and keep out draughts. We have two weights of organic cotton & kapok filled duvets to choose from (all-year, winter).
Please note that duvets are cut generously as there will be an initial shrinkage after the first few weeks of use. (This is due to the heat and moisture generated during sleep which will make the duvet contract slightly.)
How to care for your cotton/kapok duvet: Ideally you air your duvet frequently and expose it to sunlight when possible. Stains should be spot-cleaned. If you need to wash your duvet: Please refer to the washing instructions on the label.
Do not tumble dry. Duvets need to be pulled back into shape before drying and should be dried flat. The filling is untreated and part of the vegetable residue within the cotton may discolour the cover after it has become wet.
Dry cleaning: It is possible to dry clean this duvet. Stay away from the conventional methods using harsh chemicals - there are more and more 'green' options available now!
