About The Kapok Filled Duvet:
This duvet has a pure plant fibre filling – half kapok, half organic cotton. This is a fluffy and silky feeling duvet similar in its feel to feathers.
– Suitable for all-year use.
– The duvet features a ‘mummy-style’ quilting pattern (wider at the top and narrowing at the feet) which gives the duvet more drape so it can better ‘envelop’ the sleeper and keep out draughts.
– The duvets are also equipped with cotton ties on the corners which allow them to be combined with other duvets for extra weight and warmth.
– Approximately 8-9 togs (approx. 500 gsm)
Double – 200 x 200 cm (79″ x 79″)
King – 225 x 220 cm (88″ x 86″)
Super king – 260 x 220 cm (102″x 86″)
Please note that duvets are cut generously as there will be an initial shrinkage after the first few weeks of use. (This is due to the heat and moisture generated during sleep which will make the duvet contract slightly.)
About Kapok: Kapok contains naturally occurring bitter-compounds in its fibres. These make this material unattractive to dust mites and other creepy crawlies.
Kapok fibres are naturally coated with a type of wax which means that no moisture is retained or absorbed and therefore helps your duvet to stay dry.
Kapok grows wild in tropical forests without the need for any pesticides. Kapok trees are vital for the local economies which is why they are not felled and hence help with preserving tropical forests.
Ideally air the duvet frequently and expose it to sunlight when possible. Stains should be spot-cleaned.
If you need to wash your duvet: please refer to the washing instructions on the label.
Do not tumble dry.
Duvets need to be pulled back into shape before drying and should be dried flat.
NB: The filling is untreated and part of the vegetable residue within the cotton may discolour the cover after it has become wet.
Dry-cleaning: it is possible to dry-clean this duvet.
