Yves Delorme uses top grade white European goose down to provide loft for insulation and lightness for freedom and comfort. Encased in the finest quality batiste, these comforters combine modern technology and beautiful craftsmanship. Heavier weights (Continental) have baffle box construction that keeps the down in place and allows for maximum loft; lighter comforters (Caribbean Light, Mediterranean Light & All Season) have box stitching, the preferred design for summer and ultra-light products.
Filling: White Goose Down; Fill Power: 680; Fabric: 100% Egyptian cotton, batiste weave; Box Stitch Construction.
Care: Duvets, pillows and featherbeds should be fluffed daily to maintain the loft and fullness of the down. If stained, duvets and pillows can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap. If featherbeds or silk duvets become soiled, dry clean only.
For complete cleaning of down duvets and pillows, it is recommended to launder rather than dry clean. Laundering rejuvenates the lofting quality of down, making duvets and pillows full, fluffier, and fresh smelling. You may wash down items in a front-loading, extra capacity washer using a mild detergent in warm water. Do not use top loading washing machines or the agitation may damage the delicate cotton cover. Down duvets and pillows love drying in the sun. Spread them out on a sheet on the grass or deck, and shake them vigorously from time to time while drying. Or you may tumble dry in a dryer set on medium heat. Be certain your down duvets and pillows are thoroughly dry before returning to the bed or storage. Always store in cotton bags, never in plastic. Use pillow protectors on down pillows, and wash the protectors regularly. A mattress protector over a featherbed is strongly recommended.
