Choosing the right duvet isn’t always easy but taking the time to find the right one to suit your personal preference is important. You need to consider the filling, fill power and tog. So why not explore our Buying Guide to help make your decision easier?

Made in the UK just for you

Our duvets are made-to-order in the UK by a team of highly skilled craftspeople, using only hotel quality fillings and covers. This means that they have not been stored in a shop or warehouse for long periods of time, nor travelled around the world to get to you.

As our duvets are freshly filled just for you. They normally arrive within two weeks of your order being received and will be dispatched directly from our manufacturer and delivered by DPD, but they will be worth the wait!

Which type of filling should I buy?

Having quality fillings is extremely important for your duvet. That's why we've searched the world to find the best responsibly sourced natural and luxurious Eco Hypoallergenic fillings possible. Whether you love the lightweight cosiness of down, the plumpness of feather or a superior down-like alternative, you will find the perfect duvet at Frida Home London. All incredibly breathable and comfortable to sleep in.

NATURAL FILLINGS

Generously filled with the finest ethically sourced European down and feather.

Fluffy down clusters grow under the outer protective layer of duck and geese feathers. As these trap air, they work together with your body temperature to provide the highest level of insulation and superior breathability. The down clusters expand and trap tiny pockets of air, resulting in luxurious comfort and warmth. The higher the down percentage, the softer and lighter the duvet will feel. Feathers keep the duck or goose dry. They are larger and heavier than down, the higher the feather percentage the weightier the duvet will feel.  Duvets with a higher feather content are less expensive than the equivalent down filled duvet.

Encased in a high quality 100% cotton cover with a unique internal baffle-box construction. This ensures the filling remains in place for even warmth and loftiness. Double stitched and piped for durability and strength.

What does fill power mean?     

The fill power is the measure of loft and fluffiness of natural down. It represents the amount of space that an ounce of down will occupy in cubic inches within a duvet. Higher fill power means a softer, warmer, lighter and longer lasting duvet.
Fill power does not apply to feather or man-made fibre fillings.

  • Our Classic Duck Feather and Down duvet has a fill power of 400.
  • Both our Luxe Duck Down and Ultimate Hungarian Goose Down duvets have a fill power of 750.

What is a tog rating?  

The tog rating acts as a guide to the warmth of a duvet by its ability of trapping warm air around you. Togs work on a scale, the higher the tog, the warmer you will be. The lower the tog, the lighter the duvet will be making you feel cooler. You may wish to use a different tog for each season.

Spring 9 tog
Summer 4.5 tog
Autumn 9 or 10.5 tog
Winter 10.5 or 13.5 tog All Seasons*
*All Seasons duvets are ideal throughout the year. They include a 4.5 tog plus a 9 tog duvet. These can be easily clipped together to create 13.5 tog duvet. Or they can simply be used separately.

What certification do Frida Home London duvets have?

All our duvets are thoroughly tested and conform to strict European standards. They are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified, a rigorous environmental standard which ensures no harmful substances are used at any stage of the manufacturing process.

Natural Fillings
  • Downafresh® certified which guarantees the natural fillings are sourced from cruelty-free suppliers and are a by-product of the food industry. 
  • Nomite® certification from the European Down and Feather Association (EDFA). This ensures that the high density cover fabric forms a natural barrier against mites which may cause allergies.

How do I care for my duvet?

Regular care can extend the lifespan, appearance and quality of your duvet.

Our duvets are fully washable, however we recommend taking them to a professional specialist cleaner as most domestic washing machines are too small to wash a large duvet. Do not dry clean. Machine washable at 40°C using a mild liquid detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners as they will damage the high quality fillings and fibres resulting in premature wear and tear. Tumble dry on a low heat.

To remove any small stains or marks, spot clean by using a clean damp cloth with soapy water then leave on a flat surface to dry. The duvet must be completely dry before being used or stored away as moisture can damage the filling. Avoid storing in plastic, use the natural breathable 100% cotton Frida Home London storage bag your duvet arrived in.
