Fill: Canadian Hutterite White Goose Down, 850 CU Loft (Fill Power)
Shell: 100% Combed Cotton Sateen, 385 Thread Count Down-Proof Ticking
Banff duvets are made from the highest quality Canadian Hutterite White Goose down. This down comes from free-range geese in Western Canada raised to the mature age of approximately nine months, producing down with greater strength and loft. Our Banff duvets have 850 fill power (loft).
Delta Plus construction originated in Scandinavia. Channels running from head to toe overlap each other because of a diagonal baffle system sewn with interior seams, using strong thread to ensure a long-lasting duvet. These slanted walls layer the down and prevent cold spots from forming around seams. Each baffle is carefully sealed to prevent down from drifting between the channels.
Finishing: Crisp white sateen shell is finished with double stitching and satin piping. Corner loops allow duvet to be attached to duvet cover.
Down is the most efficient natural insulator; offering the properties of warmth, lightness, airiness and breathability. The natural down filling in all our duvets has been sterilized and sanitized in Canada with an antimicrobial process to eliminate bacteria, rendering it hypoallergenic and durable. It has been laboratory tested and exceeds all Canadian and International cleanliness standards.
The strength of down determines how long it will last before breaking into filaments. Only strong down from mature birds will last for up to 20 years with proper care. Lesser quality down from immature birds will result in a flat, lifeless duvet.
Loft or fill power is measured by the number of cubic inches filled by an ounce of down. The higher the loft, the less down by weight is required to fill the same space, thereby making for a lighter duvet. Our Hutterite down is separated from feathers during processing, to a down purity of 90%, exceeding the industry standard of 75%.
