Questions about Our Wool duvets

Can I wash my Zizzz Swisswool duvet?

Yes, you can wash it in your machine using the wool program and detergent, but avoid using a dryer as wool doesn't tolerate it.

Do wool duvets regulate body temperature?

Yes, that's wool's main benefit! Our wool duvets help regulate your body temperature while you sleep because of their natural breathability and ability to wick moisture. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, which can help prevent you from overheating and sweating.

Whom are wool duvets best suited for?

Wool duvets are great for those who sleep hot or cold, as the wool fibers help to wick away moisture and regulate body temperature, keeping the sleeper snug and comfortable all night long. 
Wool is also a hypoallergenic natural fiber that resists mold, mildew and dust mites, making wool duvets a good choice for asthmatics and allergy sufferers.

What size duvet should I choose to fit my bed? 

In addition to the size of the bed, there are two other factors to consider. First, how much of the duvet you want to fall out on each side of the bed and secondly how much you or you and your partner move around at night. 
We recommend the following: 
• for a single bed of 80x200 cm, 90x200 cm, and 140x200 cm, we recommend a 140x200 cm duvet 
• for more comfort in a single bed of 80x200 cm, 90x200 cm, and 140x200 cm, we recommend a larger duvet, as in160x210 cm (Swiss standard size) 
• if you don't want your duvet to hang on the floor next to your bed, a duvet of 135x200cm or 140x200 cm for a double bed of 120x190-200 cm 
• On big beds, like those sized 160x200, 180x200 and 240x240, you can use two 160x210 cm duvets.
• a 240x240 cm size duvet for a double bed of 140x190 or 140x200cm, if you want your duvet to cover or even envelop you under all circumstances

Are wool duvets hypoallergenic?

What is a wool duvet? 

A wool duvet is a type of duvet made from natural wool fibers, usually wool taken from sheep, lamas or alpacas. Our wool duvets are made from Swisswool, which is pure virgin wool from sheep raised in the Swiss Alps, which has been reinforced with vegetable fibers to make it machine washable.

How to clean and maintain your duvet for longevity and hygiene?

Monthly airing eliminates humidity, kills dust mites and bacteria. Hang it outside or in a well-ventilated room, avoiding beating or vacuuming. Follow care instructions for washing and drying, use a gentle detergent, and consider using a duvet cover for added protection. Proper care ensures a clean, comfortable, and hygienic duvet for years.

Can they be used all throughout the year?

Wool can regulate body temperature and wick moisture away from the body, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

How do I keep my wool duvet in good condition?

Air your wool duvet out regularly and dry-clean it when necessary to keep your wool duvet in good condition. 
Our Swisswool duvets can be machine washed. They can be tumble dried if the dryer has a wool program, but it’s best to let them dry naturally.
