Questions & answers

Why should I choose a Happy Fluffy Cloud duvet?

Do you enjoy a cozy sleep with warmth, fluff, and weight? Then this is your new sleeping buddy! The duvet is cozier, larger and fluffier than any other duvet on the market. You've never experienced a duvet like this before, and that alone is thrilling!

What IS a fluffy duvet?

Sleep cloud, down duvet... this type of duvet has many names and surely even more descriptions. Happy Fluffy Cloud is our vision of a classic down duvet with the best natural properties for a good night's sleep. The duvet lacks channel stitching. It's essentially a "bag" with just the perfect amount of filling for comfortable weight and cozy warmth. Our Megafluff single duvet weighs a whopping 4.8 kilos(!) and it's part of the experience and the cool thing - that a fluffy duvet can feel both airy and heavy at the same time.

What are the advantages of a fluffy duvet?
A high and fluffy duvet creates a cozy, snug nest. Under a heavier duvet, we fall asleep more easily and sleep deeper as the body settles and stays still. Its ability to provide warmth and regulate temperature is also an incredible advantage. That's why the vast majority absolutely LOVE their sleep clouds.

What is the difference between a duvet and a comforter?

Duvets are more commonly used in Europe and is a soft bag filled with down and feathers, designed to be inserted into a duvet cover which can be washed, and are known for their warmth and insulation. While comforters are standalone blankets with built-in quilting and are more popular in the United States. Unlike a duvet, a comforter is typically sewn or quilted to keep the filling evenly distributed.

Why is the duvet this big?

Our duvets are truly large. Megafluff is GIGANTIC. But even Midifluff is larger than you're used to. This is because our down duvets lack the traditional sewn pockets and channel stitching that typically "tame" the down filling, distribute it evenly, and compress it. The absence of these features in our duvets allows the down filling to move freely within the duvet and take up space, resulting in a very lofty duvet.

What does the lack of channel stitching mean?

Our down duvets lack channel stitching. This may feel unusual, but it's also why this duvet is perceived as more luxurious than others. The absence of channel stitching means that the down lies freely within the duvet and moves at its own will. This means that you can shake the down towards the foot of the bed if you have cold feet or gather the down over your chest if you desire weight and warmth on top. Therefore, the duvet should be shaken before you get under it in the evening. A good shake to redistribute the down, fluff it up, and put it in its place. This allows your duvet to regain its astonishing fluffiness.

Learn to handle a duvet without channel stitching!
Down and feathers typically fully expand after a few days, having been somewhat compressed for packaging during transportation. Therefore, it may take a few nights to get to know the duvet's full potential. It may also require a bit of practice to achieve the optimal sleep under this sleep cloud – the down needs a little help to be distributed as you prefer. So, sweep the down with your arm to distribute the filling throughout the duvet. In general, you may need to spend a few extra seconds when making your bed after your heavenly sleep experience, but it's mostly just unfamiliar and might seem a bit cumbersome at first. Once you fall in love with the duvet, you won't care that it takes over your bed and doesn't lie as flat as your previous (boring?) duvet.

Does the down stay in place in the comforter?

Megafluff completely lacks channel stitching. Midifluff has a simple channel stitch on the outer edge. This means that the down in both of these duvets lies freely. In Megafluff, the down is entirely free, and in Midifluff, the down lies freely in the center of the duvet. This way, each down and feather can be in its ideal place. We have agreed that for us, the right balance is achieved - the duvet is filled enough that the down stays in place, but it's not so tightly packed that the duvet loses its softness and feels stiff.

How do you distribute the down evenly?

The duvet will need to be fluffed, puffed, and shaken to evenly distribute the down - if that's what you want. For Megafluff, which completely lacks channel stitching, you can also shake the down to the bottom of the duvet if desired. But generally, to distribute the down most easily, in addition to shaking the duvet, you can sweep your arm across the duvet (you "sweep away" the down in this manner).

Is it very warm under the duvet?

Down possesses fantastic thermal properties. It provides warmth, insulation, and ventilation, essentially acting like a thermostat, allowing a thick down duvet to regulate temperature. A duvet from Happy Fluffy Cloud is filled with carefully selected goose down and feathers, which have less fat content than, for example, duck down. This facilitates quick and efficient moisture removal. Additionally, you can distribute the down as you prefer – more down towards the feet or thick and warm on top over the chest. So the answer is yes, it's guaranteed to be warm under the fluffy duvet, but very rarely sweaty.
(Psst! Those who are very sensitive to the cold will prefer Megafluff, while Midifluff is somewhat cooler)

Is this a weighted blanket?

The range of so-called weighted blankets is extensive. A weighted blanket in a medical sense can be prescribed by doctors for individuals with sleep difficulties, symptoms of stress, or significant anxiety. These blankets contain weights in the form of chains or weight bands, which correspond to about 10% of the patient's body weight. The idea that a heavy blanket calms the body so that the soul finds rest is an old one. In the past, heavy wool blankets were placed over those who were sick.
Our Megafluff single duvet weighs 4.8 kilos and is lofty and puffy. Therefore, you don't wrap yourself in a down comforter in the same way as in a blanket or a thinner comforter during the night. Sleeping under a down comforter is similar to sleeping under a weighted blanket. The comforter stays still on top, and the body moves less under the weight.

Where does the down come from?

The global market for down and other animal products is often a truly dirty business. Animals, people, and nature are exploited recklessly in favor of economic interests. Our comforters are produced in Europe and contain only down and feathers from Europe. Within the EU, some of the world's strictest regulations for the production of down and feathers have been established. For example, in Canada and Asia (the largest producers of fur, feathers, and down), the laws are more on the side of capital and less on the side of animals.Our down comes from food poultry. Utilizing all parts is a way to reduce waste and work toward a more sustainable system, but also a way to lead the way for other markets. By not purchasing animal products from countries with weaker animal protection laws, we support legislation that promotes a healthier approach to animal handling. We believe this is the right path forward even from an economic perspective. In the future, we hope that all consumers and producers will choose this path.

Our down comes from farms within the EU that have agreed upon strict regulations. This was a prerequisite for us to be able to sleep well at night.

What size duvet cover fits?

A Happy Fluffy Cloud duvet measures 150x210 or 240x220cm. It fits most standard duvet covers. Actually! A few extra centimeters here or there really doesn't matter. The blanket fluffs up and fills out, like rising dough. If your duvet cover is shorter than the blanket, buttons or ties to close the duvet cover come in handy.

How do I make the bed?

Your down duvet will require its place in the bed. The duvet can be heavy to shake, which you might be used to doing during bed-making to fluff the down. Therefore, place the duvet over the bed and sweep your arm over it to distribute the down. Let the duvet spill over the edge of the bed and lie like an inviting sleep cloud that lures you to sleep.

How do you wash a down comforter?

Machine wash
Wash only in exceptional cases and then with down detergent. Our duvets can be washed at 40 degrees Celsius, making them suitable even for allergy sufferers. After washing, it is important to dry the duvet thoroughly in a tumble dryer, preferably with tennis balls. This takes time, but it is crucial that the duvet is completely dry, otherwise the down can clump, and the duvet may lose its fluffiness.

Dry Cleaning
Dry cleaning is also an option for our duvets.

Shake & air
By shaking and airing your duvet regularly (preferably in sub-zero temperatures), it stays fresh for a long time. When the duvet is shaken and aired, the down and feathers straighten out, regain their resilience, and regain the natural properties that make the duvet incredibly fluffy.

What is the fill power of the comforter?

Sometimes the term "fill power" is used as a measure of warmth or thickness in a comforter. Fill power is used then as another word for insulation ability. A comforter that contains down will, for example, always have better fill power than a comforter with only feathers or synthetic materials. The quality of the down, the blend with feathers, and the amount of down are factors that contribute to high fill power. However, how a comforter is experienced is individual, and it's not entirely certain that a comforter with the same fill power will be perceived the same way by two people. Additionally, different manufacturers and regions use different units to measure fill power, making the system difficult to oversee and interpret.
Some manufacturers choose not to specify any unit for fill power. At Happy Fluffy Cloud, we usually summarize it like this: We have developed a down comforter with high-quality goose down and feathers from carefully controlled farms within the EU. We believe that a healthy production is the foundation for good sleep. Our comforters contain more down than most comforters on the market, and the insulation ability is generally good. The comforter is warm and fluffy but is rarely perceived as damp due to its ability to effectively transport moisture away.

The fluffy duvet is not what I'm used to, what do I do?

How unfortunate! Let us guide you through our fluffy world!
Experiencing that a duvet is too warm, too heavy, or too large usually comes down to habit! We both believe and hope that you will get along with (and even fall in love with) your down duvet. It's most likely just a matter of needing a little adjustment period.

Are Happy Fluffy Clouds products hypoallergenic?

All Happy Fluffy Clouds are non-allergenic duvets NOMITE® certified.

Down- and feather-filled products offer excellent thermal and climatic conditions for humans (rapid warming up when one is sleeping, rapid decrease in humidity when the bedding is aired), they provide a very poor habitat for house dust mites, which rely on high humidity to live.

The tight weave of the down- and feather-proof fabric acts as a barrier preventing the mites from passing through and offers, thus, additional protection. So that also those who suffer from house dust allergies or asthma can enjoy the natural comfort afforded by down and feather bedding.
