John Lewis Luxury Hungarian Goose Down Duvet, 4.5 Tog

We like it because...

it uses Hungarian down feathers to create a naturally breathable duvet for the perfect night's sleep

Product information

A truly luxurious offering that is perfect for a wonderfully comfortable night's sleep, this duvet features a 90% Hungarian goose down and 10% goose feather filling within a down-proof cotton cover with a rich 300 thread count, woven stripe finish and piped edging.

Please note: This is a natural product, which will therefore always have a slight odour. This can be reduced by airing the product out for at least 48 hours prior to use. New products will have a stronger odour due to it being inside packaging for a period of time, but will gradually decrease over a few days.

This range of naturally filled duvets and pillows is now housed in Nomite marked casing: a first for the UK market. The tight weave of the cover fabric ensures no down or feathers can escape, whilst it provides an effective barrier against dust mites. This means that these ranges are suitable for house-dust-mite-allergy and asthma sufferers. Supported by scientific research, our market leading casing gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy the multiple benefits of natural fillings.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Needs refilling too often We bought the 13.5/4.5 tog duvets in 2011. The 4.5 tog duvet was fine for most of the year and was lovely at first. However despite daily shaking, by 2014 the down had all disappeared from the centre of the duvet. I took it back to John Lewis and discovered that they will refill the duvet free of charge. The refill was ok though it was never the same as before, and now just two years later the duvet is empty again in a lot of the pockets, and shaking it doesn't fix it. For such a lot of money I would have hoped it would last a whole lot longer. I LOVED the weight and warmth/coolness and want to get another down duvet but not if I have the same issue again. Was it a poor product from John Lewis or is this just how long Hungarian goose down duvets last? 13 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit crunchy This is a lovely duvet regarding weight as its light but wraps around you to give just the right amount of warmth. The only disappointment is the outer cover is great quality but rather crunchy when you move. I purposely went into our local branch to feel for the softest cover before ordering with gift vouchers given for Christmas. So to find that the cover in the store is not what you get is why I gave 4 stars. I recommend that store samples be updated to what's in the box. Couldn't send back as had no other duvet to use. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality Have not had this type of quilt since their original introduction(first on the market).Feathers constantly coming out so I went to synthetic as became the normal.Prefer natural fibres so I thought "let's give this a try".Have 4.5 tog all year round.Did a lot of research and after reading the reviews thought this is the one to buy.Ordered king size for double bed.Hung over bannister for a week and it fluffed up beautiful.Very pleased with purchase all round quality. 02 February 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy to buy British! Delighted to see personal note from British manufacturer. Great quality but duvet most definitely needs airing for few days before use due to aroma. Otherwise, no problem, fabulous finish. 29 December 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy I bought this duvet as a replacement for a really old one , still going strong but a bit off colour. 4-5tog we use for most of the year adding an extra cover for a bit more weight. The goose down is lightweight & wonderfully warm we would not want anything else. 19 September 2015
