John Lewis Fine European Duck Down Duvet, 13.5 Tog (9 + 4.5 Tog) All Seasons

Product information

A naturally lightweight and refreshingly breathable duvet, it is filled with 90% duck down and 10% duck feather which are encased in a 240 thread count cotton casing with down-proofing to prevent your sleep being disturbed by feathers or down.
Breathable and filled with clusters of down that are lighter and softer than feathers, it is not only lightweight but warm and helps to prevent any cold spots during the winter months as well as offering a crisp yet voluminous finish.
Finished with piping around the edges, it is a soft and sumptuous way to get a great night's sleep. Offering a comfortable weight for a cosy night's sleep, the duvets in this range have a fill power of 480.
All our natural bedding suppliers provide us with a guarantee that their feather and down is sourced only as a by-product of the food industry. In addition, they’re monitored to ensure they practice the highest standards of animal welfare.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by This down duvet stinks We bought a "Fine European Duck Down" king size duvet last November for our family/guests to use when staying at Christmas and through the year. The smell was strong when we opened the box and we thought it would fade over time. This has not been the case. Despite the duvet being kept opened out throughout the winter, the smell is still strong. With this week's fine weather we have put the quilt out on the line in the garden to air in the wind and sunshine. So far the smell has not diminished and seems as strong as ever - I can smell it as I walk past. I feel very let down as this duvet cost a lot of money. I would not buy down again. 18 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Slightly disappointed The duvet feels lovely and we spent a lot of time in store and online going through our different options as we saw this as a real investment. I wish we had taken it out of the box rather than using the samples as there are only 6 plastic poppers which hold the 2 duvets together and they seem to come undone easily. I am having to adjust the duvet every night as they are coming apart in the cover. Similarly to the previous reviewer I was tempted to return this product but we got rid of the box straight away as we were initially so confident in our purchase. 08 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great duvet. Shame about plastic poppers. Really lovely duvet but was so disappointed to discover the plastic poppers. No mention in description and had carefully read reviews where two talked about buttons. Can only think supplier changes frequently. Poppers come undone, can feel them through cover and instructions say can tumble dry on hot setting. Of course you can't do that cause the poppers melt (know from past experience). Too much trouble to pack up and return. So far my first John Lewis disappointment. 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderfully soft and cosy This was a lot of money to spend, we have a super-king bed so the duvet was expensive and I worried it wouldn't be worth it but it really does feel special. It is cosy yet light and really fluffy. I love the rustle as you snuggle down, it reminds me of a posh hotel bed. The only downside at the moment is the smell, I've heard duck down can smell when new and it does but hopefully this will go as the duvet is aired more. Ive not yet used the two together since it is too warm at the moment but I am pleased to see they attach using proper buttons and not poppers which could easily come apart and require re-popping each night. To summarise, I love it, well worth the money. 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it It was a lot of money for me to spend on a duvet but, wow it has been worth it. We love it. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So so so warm and comfy! The best quality duvet we have ever had! Such a luxury and was a reasonable price for a duvet with such a high percentage of duck down. Would recommend this product to anyone. 11 February 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product but noisey Having chosen this duvet rather than others by handling the sample in the shop, we are disappointed that the cover is different and very noisey. The cover on the one in the shop was soft cotton, therefore quiet. We have to say that we are very disappointed that the cover appears to be made of a much stiffer cotton material, hence the noise it makes whenever you move the duvet.- quite annoying really. We would welcome a response from Customer Services. 11 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the box This quilt is absolutely fine. Some people have complained that it's too noisey. I don't know what they are talking about! 07 January 2014
