Best Overall Duvet 2019 - Luxury Hungarian Goose Down and Feather Duvet

Posted by Cuddledown ‍ on

The first thing that comes to mind is, why Hungarian?

Among large geese species, Hungarian geese find the centre stage — the oldest and largest of the gaggle yield the finest down. A high quality down cluster is produced by larger geese. Large down clusters are tougher, durable, and last longer. Simply put, the larger the down cluster, the finer the down quality.

Fine quality is always long-lasting.

That their luxurious Goose down holds sway as the finest in the world, geese farmers in Hungary understand. They are happy to keep it that way.

Secondly, Hungarian geese farmers treat their geese ethically and environmentally sustainable. Their commitment to quality is legend. The goose down is subjected to independent testing for cleanliness. The down is guaranteed for hypo-allergenic freeness.

Only soap and water are used to clean the down. All possible precautions to ensure that no chemicals that can damage the down are taken.

Be informed before investing

Please be informed that these are guidelines and not rules as such.

All comforters are not created equal. A good night's sleep assumes great significance. After all, it heralds your working day, and so it needs to be very good. People use the best sheets, pillows, etc. But overlook that singular item, a quality comforter assuming that their comforter is as good as the next.

Hungarian Goose Down and Feather duvets are the last word in exceptional comfort.


Hungarian Goose Down and Feather duvets use a baffle box design. This design is the most expensive and challenging. Baffles are internal divisions connected to the outer fabric. Visualise a honeycomb filled with Hungarian Goose down.

The duvets are sewn-thru. The quilting process sews the outer fabric together, pitching the down away, creating beautiful boxes. They are double stitched with a corded perimeter.


A duvet is, after all for warmth. The term for thermal resistance is called the tog rating. You will need to know what it is to make an informed purchase. The tog rating is a measure of how efficiently air can be trapped, thereby providing warmth.

In summer, one requires a cool, lightweight, low tog duvet, say 1.5 to 3 and winters qualify for a tog rating of 15. An all-season duvet would be in the range of tog of 4.5 to 9.

Fill power

This is the amount of space occupied by one ounce of the down cluster. Fill power is directly proportional to quality as well as the size of the down cluster. One ounce of 600 Fill power Hungarian goose down occupies 800 ounces.

Any down having a rating of 600 or over, can be deemed as of exceptional quality.

Thread count

The common assumption that the thread count is a measure of the quality of the fabric is erroneous.

First of all, some manufacturers use a two ply thread, so a 300TC material becomes 600TC.

Secondly, thread count is influenced by the actual thickness of the thread yarn. High-quality yarn comes from thicker yarn. Fine yarn can only come from fine quality, long-staple cotton.


Egyptian cotton is the fabric of choice here. Chiefly cultivated in Northern Africa, it is long-staple fine cotton. To maintain the high quality consistently, only the finest down-proof fabrics are used, in our case, Egyptian cotton.

Hungarian Goose Down and Feather duvets use a 300-312 thread count Egyptian cotton fabric for their products.

Caring for your duvet

1)  Duvet and pillow protectors are an economical way to preserve the quality of your bedding. Always use one as protection from soiling. They help in minimizing the need for washing and are the first defence against dust mites.

2) Follow the care instructions shown on the label and in the literature accompanying the product.

3) Dry and air bedding periodically.

4) Natural fibre cannot be dry cleaned as chemicals will damage it.

5) Give the duvet a good shake every morning. The filling is redistributed and helps it to recover.

6) Pull back the covers. Airing lets the fibers breath and moisture to evaporate.

7) Wash your duvet every 6-12 months at 30 degrees C. For home wash, place in dryer with a tennis ball, on low heat to refresh the down. The duvet must be absolutely dry, or the filling can be unsettled, clumping together.

For major cleaning, use the services of a professional launderer familiar with the cleaning of down products.
