What is the difference between a down blanket and a down duvet?
Generally speaking, down blankets are more lightweight. They use a sewn-through (or stitch-through) construction, where the top layer of ticking is sewn directly onto the bottom layer to keep the down evenly distributed. Down blankets are typically sized a bit more generously than a duvet, as they’re often used in lieu of a duvet, woven blanket, or coverlet. Many of our customers use a down or down alternative blanket as a third sheeting instead of a traditional blanket. It is a good choice for those who do “turn-down” service as it looks lovely when guests return to their room after dinner.
A down duvet is sized to fit inside a duvet cover and comes in a variety of weights and fill powers. Luxury down duvets use a baffle box construction for optimal thermal insulation. Baffles are vertical walls of fabric sewn to connect the top and bottom ticking layers, creating a grid inside the duvet. The compartments created by the baffle construction give room for high fill power down to maintain its loft and prevent it from shifting, ensuring that the duvet maintains its thermal properties. For those who do not want to use down for allergy reasons, we also offer alternative down duvet inserts. Always be certain that your duvet is the correct size for your duvet cover as not all duvets and duvet covers are sized the same as they are manufactured by different companies. Always measure your mattress length, depth and width to be certain that you are purchasing the correct size for your particular mattress.
