7 REASONS TO BUY THE SCOOMS DUVET:

  

Natural materials - duvet | scoomsNATURAL MATERIALS

We only use the finest natural materials. A special mix of 90% authentic Hungarian goose down and 10% Hungarian selected small white goose feather, (to add a little weight), is what makes the scooms duvet so comfortable. Our goose down is a by-product of the food industry and ethically sourced, traceable and rigorously tested: RDS certified.

We put our down through a unique washing process using natural thermal spring water to preserve its properties. We don't use any toxins or chemicals in our duvet production. The Oeko-Tex 100 standard verifies that the scooms luxury down duvet has been tested for harmful toxins and chemicals.

Our down duvets are encased with the perfect weight 100% cotton casing. We use a 300 thread count super soft sateen cotton with a special tight weave to make it both down and dust mite proof.

Duvet Temperature Regulation | scoomsTEMPERATURE REGULATION

    Your duvet should provide the right temperature while you sleep whatever the season. Duvet tog rating is a useful measure of a duvet's warmth. The higher the tog, the warmer the duvet. We recommend a 2.5 tog to 4.5 tog for the summer, 9 tog for the spring, autumn and winter months, and 13.5 tog for extra winter warmth. 

    Duvet fill power measures the quality of the down in a duvet, specifically the down’s insulating ability - the ‘loft’ or ‘fluffiness’ of the down. A high fill power means that the down is light and airy and insulates well. Fill power typically ranges from about 300 fill power for feather fillings to around 800 fill power for the highest quality down. Our 100% Hungarian down duvet has high 700 fill power, which is the highest fill power for down produced from mature geese as a by-product of the food industry.

     

    Duvet Moisture Control | scoomsMOISTURE CONTROL

    We sweat while we sleep, passing moisture into our duvet. It's important that the duvet filling 'breathes' to enable the moisture to escape. We use the highest quality naturally breathable Hungarian goose down in our duvets as it offers three to four times more air circulation than synthetic materials.

     

    Duvet Body Contouring | scoomsBODY CONTOURING

    People come in different shapes and sizes.  Our perfectly balanced mix of natural materials guarantees that our down duvet has the right drape whatever your shape. Even if there are two different sized people in the bed, it naturally maps to your body shape, producing a more comfortable sleep.

     

    Clever Duvet Construction | scoomsCLEVER CONSTRUCTION

    How a duvet is made has a big impact on the comfort it provides and therefore, the quality of your sleep. Our down duvet has multiple small pockets to trap the down and ensure an even spread across the duvet, in a box stitch construction. The pockets on our 9 tog down duvets also have clever extra side walls, which are trickier to make but gives the down more space creating extra fluffiness and increasing breathability, in a baffle box construction. Each duvet is then double stitched for extra strength.

      

    Duvet Allergen Resistance | scoomsALLERGEN RESISTANCE

    Our Hungarian goose down duvet comes with the Nomite standard, an anti-allergen standard, that certifies that the scooms down duvet is suitable for house dust mite allergy sufferers. Read more in our guide to Nomite duvets and pillows.

    It’s a misconception that synthetic duvets are less of an allergen than natural down duvets. The most common allergy is to the house dust mite rather than to the duvet materials. Studies have shown that synthetic bedding can harbour more dust-mites due to a typically looser weave casing and limited breathability. Using 90% Hungarian goose down, with its natural temperature and moisture regulating properties, ensures that the scooms goose down duvet provides a poor habitat for dust mites. The 100% cotton casing with an especially tight weave helps prevent dust mites passing through.

     

    All seasons comfort Duvet | scoomsALL SEASONS COMFORT

    An all season duvet consists of two duvets, a lighter duvet plus a warmer duvet. We have three All season duvet combinations, a 13.5 tog, a 11.5 tog and a 7 tog. Our all seasons duvets come with really easy to use fasteners so that you can fit the two duvets together when the nights get colder to create a warmer tog duvet. Choose the perfect warmth for you, whatever the temperature. 

    Our all season duvets come in a handy material bag so you can store one duvet while you use the other.

    WHAT DOES SCOOMS MEAN?

    We often get asked why we chose the name 'scooms'. It doesn't actually mean anything! We liked the name 'scooms' as it has a warm, restful feeling and the double ‘oo’ reminds us of a couple of duvets rolled up next to each other.

     

    The scooms goose down duvet has been crafted to make sleep beautifully simple. Try it for yourself with our risk free 60 night duvet trial.

    We're sure you'll love it!
