The Die Zudecke Goose Feather & Down Range

Contemplating upgrading to a goose feather and down duvet and pillows? The Good Homes Approved team reviews the Die Zudecke range…

When weighing up feather duvets, many choose goose over duck because they have fluffier feathers and larger down clusters, meaning better insulating properties and longevity. Down is the fine layer of insulating fluffy feathers found around the belly of the bird, so for a plump, soft duvet and pillow set, look for one that combines both, offering fluffiness and insulation rolled into one.

The Good Homes Approved teams reviews the Die Zudecke Goose Feather and Down Range, which contains 85% Hungarian Goose Feathers and 15% Hungarian Goose Down for luxury bedding on a budget.

The 4.5 tog duvet vs 10.5 tog

4.5 tog duvet:

  • The 4.5 tog Hungarian Goose Feather and Down duvet is extremely lightweight and perfect for spring/summer
  • It’s very comfortable to sleep in and retains warmth, despite being so lightweight

10.5 tog duvet:

  • The 10.5 tog Hungarian Goose Feather and Down duvet was light weight but also very warm, great for winter
  • The duvet bounced into shape quite quickly after unwrapping
  • There was no odour to the duvet when unpacked, which can sometimes occur with feather and down products

Soft, medium or firm pillow?

  • The soft pillow was plump and very comfortable, and also had no odour when unpacked
  • The medium firmness pillow is extremely comfortable and the perfect balance between soft and firm
  • The firm pillow is robust and retains its firmness over time
