The Difference with the right pillow and duvet
Made from premium pure white goose down and small feathers, Hästens down pillows and duvets breathe and provide the best insulation for an all-natural environment. Our studies reveal that no matter how breathable your bed is, the wrong duvet or pillows will stifle its ability to circulate air around your body.
Your pillow and duvet play a key role in ensuring a sound sleep. It is important to choose the right pillow to give your spine and neck the right conditions to retain an anatomically correct position during sleep.
Ever since 1926, Hästens has been perfecting pillows and duvets using the finest down and feathers available—nothing synthetic, just pure natural down and feathers from geese and ducks. Down insulates and holds warmth for your body, while allowing moisture to evaporate, and providing delicate support. Ducks and geese fare rather well wearing “the same suit of clothes” in cold winters and hot summers. And so will you when you sleep with Hästens pillows and duvets filled with clean, new down and feathers.
To ensure that you get the greatest benefit from down’s amazing properties, the fabric in our duvets and pillow also hits a very high standard and is woven to our unique specifications. It is strong, lightweight, downproof and 100% cotton.
Woven with fine threads so air can circulate, our fabrics and linens help the down filling to breathe. Over time, what we’ve learned is that there’s a fine line between sumptuous comfort and lack of ventilation when it comes to thread count. You want a softness but not insulation. At Hästens we choose fabrics that blend durability with lightness, to heighten the experience of sleeping on air. The best thread count for the specific material without compromising on breathability—that’s real luxury bedding.
Be wary of lesser-quality down products that are often sprayed with glue-like sealant to keep down from escaping but which also prevents the air from circulating.
If you have felt sweaty under a down duvet, it is probably because it has been sprayed with glue, the bed is made from synthetic material, or your bedroom is too hot (14–18°C is recommended).
