John Lewis New Fine European Duck Down Duvet, 4.5 Tog

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 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by John Lewis European Duck Down 4.5 Duvet Very effective and light. Perfect replacement for winter duvet 19 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by not for everyone I find this a lovely cosy downie and would recommend it however it is not as light as my husband would like. It suits an east coast summer but may be a little warm for further south. 28 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best duvet ever This was bought to replace an older duck feather and down 4.5tog duvet I'd been using for many years and had washed a few times which was starting to lose its performance. The new duvet is full of down and the pockets are nicely filled and fluffy. It's perfectly warm yet light and feels more luxurious than my old duvet ever was. I can't recommend this enough. 02 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm enough We already had the 10.5 tog version and bought this one when we started to bake in the summer. We thought we'd need to switch back to the 10.5 for winter but we're actually still using this 4.5 tog at the end of January. If your house is well insulated you probably don't need a higher tog rating than this, our bedroom is usually around 21-22 degrees C in winter. The duvet feels great, it's light and quite quiet. it's clearly very well made. 24 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by everything we want in a duvet We purchased our first ever duvet in October, 10.5 feather & down, but by the early part of this year we found it was too hot. and so came to John Lewis for a lighter one. We were not disappointed as this superking duvet is beautifully made, light on the body and keeps us comfortably warm all night. We ordered on line and collected at our local Waitrose, so didn't even need to struggle on the train with a large box! Thank you John Lewis. 16 May 2012
