Washing & Drying

Treat your down comforters and pillows right:
All of our down comforters and pillows can be washed in your machine. Wash the duvets at medium heat up to 140F / 60 C with high water level and low drum rotation. We recommend a mild detergent, please: not bleach.

The washing program should always conclude with a centrifugation at ordinary or, high speed. But remember: ALWAYS TUMBLE DRY comforters and pillows after washing to avoid mildew!


Dry them at 60-80°C / 140-170F together with a couple of tennis balls, or regularly take out the duvet and shake it thoroughly to break up down lumps. To avoid odor problems, let the drying continue until the duvet is completely dry.

Do not wash your comforters and pillows too often. Smaller stains can often be removed with a firmly wrung sponge and a bit of mild detergent. Excessive washing may cause a reduction of the carrying capacity of the down filling. For you to benefit from your duvet for many years, we have a few pieces of advice, which will ensure that the duvet stays nice and clean:

  • when you get up in the morning, you should turn your duvet over in order to let it release the moisture that it has absorbed during the night.
  • also, shake your duvet well when you make your bed. This keeps it full, light and airy.
  • you should air your duvet and pillow as often as possible. Always do so in the case and never in direct sunlight. Avoid vacuum cleaning and beating. You may use a soft brush, and if necessary all of our down comforters and pillows can be washed in the washing machine.

If you follow these instructions and take good care of your duvet, you can be sure to sleep well for many years to come.
