    Natural materials | scooms duvets & beddingNATURAL MATERIALS

    We only use the finest natural materials. The special mix of 90% authentic Hungarian goose down and 10% Hungarian selected small goose feather (to add a little weight), is what makes the scooms duvet so comfortable. We don't use toxins or chemicals in our production and instead put our down through a unique washing process using natural thermal water to preserve its properties. Our goose down is a by-product of the food industry and ethically sourced, traceable and rigorously tested: RDS certified.

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

    Temperature regulation | scooms duvets & beddingTEMPERATURE REGULATION

      Your down duvet needs to keep you at the right temperature 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 4.5 tog for the summer, 9 tog for the spring and autumn and 13.5 tog for the winter. 

      Duvet fill power measures the quality of the down in a duvet.  It is an expression of the down’s insulating ability, measuring 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 for feathers to around 800 for the highest quality down.  Our down duvet has high 700 fill power, which is the highest fill power for down that is a by-product of the food industry.


      Moisture control | scooms duvets & beddingMOISTURE CONTROL

      We sweat a lot when we sleep, resulting in a lot of moisture under our duvet!  So, it's important that your duvet breathes to help the moisture to escape.  We use the highest quality naturally breathable Hungarian goose down as it offers three to four times more air circulation than synthetic materials.


      Body contouring | scooms duvets & beddingBODY 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 your body shape, producing a more comfortable sleep.


      Clever construction | scooms duvets & beddingCLEVER CONSTRUCTION

      How a duvet is made has a big impact.  Our down duvet has lots of small pockets that trap the down and ensure an even spread across the duvet.  The pockets on our 9 tog down duvets have clever extra side walls, which are trickier to make but gives the down more space creating extra fluffiness and increasing breathability. Each duvet is then double stitched for extra strength.


      Allergen resistance | scooms duvets & beddingALLERGEN 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. And the Oeko-Tex 100 standard verifying that the scooms luxury down duvet has been tested against harmful toxins and chemicals.

      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 material. 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 the dust mites passing through.


      All seasons comfort | scooms duvets & beddingALL SEASONS COMFORT

      We have three All season duvet combinations, a 13.5 tog, a 11.5 tog and a 7 tog. An all season duvet consists of two duvets, a lighter duvet plus a warmer duvet. 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. Comes in a handy material bag so you can store one duvet while you use the other.
