John Lewis Fine European Duck Down Duvet, 10.5 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 4.2 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cosy but lightweight I bought the superking 10.5tog to go on a kingsize bed & have been using this duvet for about 3 weeks. There was definitely an unpleasant smell when the duvet was first unpacked! A bit like drains or farmyards! it was quite obvious that this was a 'natural' product. However, the smell had gone by the end of the first week & we didn't even have to air the duvet on the washing line. Considering this is a very large duvet, it is so light & easy to handle. I give it a good shake in the morning to aerate the down & it easily a one person job. The duvet is so cosy & warm. I feel the cold a lot but it's perfect for me. Equally, my husband is always hot during the night but because the down is breathable, it's so more suitable than a hollowfibre duvet which can become 'sweaty'. I am absolutely delighted with this duvet. It was expensive but it feels like a real investment which will hopefully give us years of cosy nights. 27 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really pleased An excellent product which I bought for my daughters and they were really toasty....would recommend. 09 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Disappointed I agree with the previous reviews regarding the smell. It is absolutely awful and I cannot use this duvet. I understand that it is a natural product - my pillows are along with all the other pillows, duvets and cushions in the house - but they do not smell. I do think there is an issue with this product. Very disappointing! 06 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick delivery, super comfy and No Smell This is a lovely product that was delivered promptly. I was conscious of other reviewers having problems with the smell, however there was no issue with our duvet. It was aired for 1-2 hours and put on the bed that night. It was warm and comfortable and I was very pleased with John Lewis for their attention to ethics and animal welfare policies. An all round fantastic product! 05 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Still waiting to be able to use As previous reviewers, the smell is awful. My duvet is currently out on the line to air for a third day. I put the cover on the duvet and onto the bed in the spare room yesterday, thinking the smell had reduced. This morning, when I went into the room, I was met with the terrible "fowl" odour. I will persevere as it is lovely, soft and fluffy but definitely would not purchase another. 09 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mixed feelings I have had this for 3 weeks now but haven't been able to sleep under it yet. It spends almost every day outside on the washing line and is just about losing the truly awful smell. I really like the feel and weight of it which is why I haven't returned it and am looking forward to using it when the weather gets colder but hope that one more week outside will mean I can bring it into the house without everyone complaining! 02 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Smells too bad to keep The duvet arrived and after 24hrs on an airer it still smells far too strongly of dead fowl (it's foul!) to consider keeping so sadly returning! Our first negative review of any JL product-sorry! 14 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK in the end Bought on-line. On opening, duvet had a strong, stale animal smell. After 3 days in the sunshine it was just usable. Please warn on-line purchasers as they have no chance to see/smell it prior to delivery. Customer Services assured me the smell would go - hard to believe at first. 15 July 2014
