4.5tog – ideal for the warmer months
A perfect choice for the warmer months of the year, these luxurious goose feather and down duvets are both comfortable and dust mite proof. They carry both the Oeko-tex Standard 100 and NOMITE certifications.
Stop sneezing, coughing or itchy skin and eyes caused by dust mites
The NOMITE certification guarantees that dust mites cannot pass through the fabric of the product confirming that the bedding is suitable to be used by sufferers of dust mite allergy.
85% white goose feather and 15% goose down
These duvets are completely dust mite proof having a casing of 100% cotton cambric and a filling of 85% goose feather and 15% goose down. All the feathers and down are washed to ensure that they are clean and then thoroughly rinsed. The drying process ensures that the feathers and down are sterilised as the temperature must reach 120°c.
Just because you have dust mite allergy you needn’t sacrifice the comfort and durability of down and feather bedding.
In fact, the conditions created by down and feather bedding are not conducive to dust mite survival and reproduction. This makes them an ideal choice for people with house dust mite allergy.
NOMITE certified bedding also has an extremely tightly woven fabric cover, creating a physical barrier between you and the dust mite. This can help to relieve allergy symptoms associated with exposure to house dust mites and their faeces.
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100
How can you ensure that the textile product you are buying is free from harmful substances and chemical treatments?
If you have allergies or multiple chemical sensitivity, this may be a question you ask yourself frequently. Thankfully, there are a number of independent certifications that can offer you reassurance.
One of these is the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. This is an independent certification, established in 1992. The aim of this certification is to show that a textile product (from bedding to clothing) poses no risk to your health.
When you buy a product with the OEKO-TEX® label, you can be reassured that it is kind to your skin, free from harmful chemical treatments. It is a vigourous testing process which gives you peace of mind, so you can buy textiles with confidence.
The closer a textile product comes to your skin, the stricter the requirements it must fulfil.
The certification goes above and beyond existing legislation, forbidding chemicals which are known to be harmful to health but not officially banned. All in all, the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a great quality seal to look for when you’re shopping for clothing or bed linen, particularly if you have chemical sensitivity or skin allergies.
