Your duvets and pillows can be hand or machine washed.

What is the difference between goose down and goose feather?

The feathers on geese or ducks are the outer covering of the bird. They have quills, repel water, and make it possible for the animal to fly. Down lies beneath this protective covering – usually on the belly of a bird - and is light and fluffy. Rather than quills, a down cluster has a round center called a plumule.
