Duvets for allergy sufferers
Dust mite allergy sufferers don't have to forego the benefits of a down duvet or feather pillow. That's what current studies show.
Down duvets and feather pillows are neither a paradise nor a food source for dust mites, as a study by the New University of Kiel shows. The authors of the study thus disprove the old mistaken belief that this bedding is not suited to allergy sufferers.
As the study shows, it's quite the contrary: It was shown that children who slept under a down duvet were less allergic to dust mites and children who are current allergy sufferers are less prone to breathing problems. Based on this knowledge, dust mite sufferers are now recommended to get down and feather bedding.
Down duvets bearing the "Swiss Guaranty VSB" quality seal are made of fabrics that pose an insurmountable barrier for dust mites. As the fillings are dried at over 100°C, they are free of mites, germs and bacteria.
