Duck Down (70/30 percent) Winter Duvets - Tog heat rating of 13.5
If you are very sensitive to the cold, this may be the best duvet for you. Be forewarned though, our winter duvets might just be too warm. In this case, we recommend the summer-autumn All Seasons combo.
Your duvets are filled with top quality duck down. This is a superb mixture of 70% pure down and 30% soft downy feathers.
Makoti down duvets are manufactured using a fully washable, pre-shrunk, finely woven (down-proof ) imported 100% cotton, and filled with the finest locally and internationally produced down. All our down products carry the NOMITE label, ensuring that they are ideal for allergy sufferers.
Superior Manufacturing Quality
Decades of experience and expertise have gone into the construction style of our baffled construction, ensuring that Makoti’s Down Duvets deliver years and years of comfort and warmth.
Every duvet is sewn with the utmost attention. Every row of blocks is sealed from the next so that your down remains evenly spread throughout the duvet. There are small holes between the blocks in a row (for filling) which ensures minimal down movement. There is no down movement between the rows of down in your duvet.

The NOMITE label means that our down duvets are perfectly suited to allergy suffers.
All our down duvets and pillows carry the NOMITE label, which deems it fit to be used in a house dust mite allergy sufferer’s home. The down and feather-filled products provide excellent thermal and climatic conditions – they warm you up rapidly when you’re sleeping but also decrease the bed’s humidity if the room is aired regularly. This makes it a very poor habitat for house dust mites to live in, as they thrive in humid conditions.
Another protective element to re-assure you is our tightly woven down-proof fabric – this makes it impossible for house dust mites to penetrate the fabric. Therefore, people suffering from dust allergies may enjoy the warmth and comfort of down and feather-filled duvets and pillows displaying the NOMITE mark.
