Children

  • Children aged 10 and under do not regulate their body temperature in the way that an adult does, so a low-tog duvet is the best and safest option.
  • We recommend a 4.5 tog duvet.
  • Babies must be over the age of 12 months before sleeping with a duvet or pillow.

Cleaning & Care

Natural Duvets

  • Machine washable
  • Due to size will usually need to be taken to professional launderer
  • Do not dry clean
  • Dry naturally or in tumble dryer
  • Ensure thorough drying to avoid clumping of filling
  • Shake regularly during drying process to keep the filling loose
  • Shake and air regularly when in use
  • Please read and follow specific care instructions on the product label

Microfibre Duvets

  • Again, professional laundering is recommended due to size
  • Tumble dry without delay
  • Dry thoroughly
  • Shake and air regularly
  • Do not dry clean

Pillows

  • Natural pillows are machine washable
  • Because the fillings are denser than a duvet, take extra care when drying
  • As with duvets, we recommend professional laundering
  • Plump up regularly for best feel and shape
