Eiderdown is the softest and most sumptuous down in existence. It is lighter in weight, warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and is unsurpassed for comfort throughout the seasons. Its insulating capacity is so advanced it is almost intuitive, adjusting perfectly to the person under the duvet. St Geneve Eiderdown is hand collected from the bird's nests at Eider Duck sanctuaries. For generations, the local farmers have created a special bond between themselves and the Eiders, where the birds aren’t disturbed and they trust the down collectors implicitly.
While Eiderdown tests at 700 loft, its unique high density (the density of filaments on the down cluster) and cling (the ability to cling to other down clusters) make it insulate at a much, much higher rate. We have found that it takes less weight of Eiderdown than any other down to get the same warmth. It works better than even a 1,000 loft down. For this duvet St Geneve import a stunning 100% cotton 400 TC jacquard from Germany. It is hand sewn in their special sealed baffle box construction. The fabric is certified to be free from harmful chemicals by OEKO-TEX® to the Standard 100, Class 1. This beautiful heirloom duvet is the epitome of luxury and function combined. They are so rare that more Lamborghini super cars are produced each year than are Eiderdown duvets.

About Fill Power (Loft)
Fill power is not the only aspect of a down duvet that determines quality, yet it is a very important factor in determining the potential total warmth of the duvet. For example, the down contained in a Queen Winter Weight Estate duvet would take up approximately 23,400 cubic inches of space (650 loft * 36 ounces of fill). A Maple Creek duvet in the same Queen Winter Weight actually adds up to 29,750 cubic inches (850 loft * 35 ounces of fill).
Perhaps most importantly, a Queen Classic Weight Maple Creek duvet equals 22,950 cubic inches. This means that a classic weight Maple Creek duvet will offer approximately equal warmth as a winter weight Estate. Higher quality down requires less filling, resulting in a lighter duvet better suited to year-round use. Since heavier duvets are more prone to disturbing rest, the lightest duvet possible is always best.
When we consider that higher quality down fillings also operate efficiently in larger temperature ranges, there is a clear reason for investing in a higher-quality fill.
Purchasing Advice - Summer, Classic or Winter?
After considering the basic concept of Fill Power or Loft, other important factors include room temperature, local climate and whether you tend to sleep warm or cool. Generally, warm sleepers in a warm bedroom will do better with a Summer duvet while cool sleepers in a cool bedroom will be better off with a Classic duvet. A Winter duvet is generally only recommended in lower fill powers or when the bedroom is not heated or extremely cool.
Buying Advice! If you're unsure, please start with a summer fill. It is possible to add additional down to a St Geneve duvet at any point in the future. However, due to the one-way nature of the European baffle boxes, it is not possible to remove down from a duvet. We offer an excellent programme with preferential pricing to help facilitate the addition of down to any St Geneve duvet purchased from The Mattress & Sleep Co., for the life of the duvet.
Higher quality duvets will provide a wider comfort range; they will be warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer than lower quality duvets. This is because higher quality down is better at all the things that down is famous for (such as insulation, lightness, breathability, etc) than lower quality down.
Higher quality fills operate in a wider range of temperatures. It is always best to invest in the highest-quality fill possible.
