If you take care of your CURA duvet right, you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come. Here, we have put together general advice and tips on how to wash your weighted duvet.
WASHING ADVICE FOR WEIGHTED DUVETS IN THE CURA PEARL COLLECTION
All CURA duvets are washable. The CURA Pearl Classic and Cura Pearl Eco can both be machine washed at 60 degrees, and can be spin dried at a low speed. For CURA Pearl Basic, we recommend machine washing at 40 degrees. None of the CURA Pearl models can be tumble dried or ironed. We recommend drying them at room temperature or outside. When drying, the duvet should always be fully stretched out in all directions. The CURA Pearl models can even be dry cleaned, but not using chemicals that are stronger than perchloroethylene. Do not use bleach.
WASHING ADVICE FOR CURA COZY
The CURA Cozy can also be machine washed at 60 degrees, and spin dried on a low speed. Unlike the CURA Pearl models, the CURA Cozy can be tumble dried at a low or medium temperature. It cannot, however, be ironed. When drying, the duvet should always be fully stretched out in all directions. The CURA Pearl models can even be dry cleaned, but not using chemicals that are stronger than perchloroethylene. Do not use bleach
FREEZING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO WASHING
An alternative way of washing CURA duvets during the winter is to freeze them. When the temperature dips below freezing, hang the duvet out on your balcony or terrace, or even just lay it in the snow. This is an effective way to eliminate bacteria and mites.
USING A WEIGHTED DUVET
There is no right or wrong way to use a weighted duvet – you know what suits you best. The vast majority of our customers use their duvet every night, but there are some who only use theirs when they feel a little too awake and are having difficulty getting to sleep. Many even use their duvet on the sofa to unwind a bit before going to bed. You can also use our weighted blankets.
WITH OR WITHOUT DUVET SHEETS
We often get asked by our customers if they should our weighted duvets with or without duvet sheets. It is, of course, a matter of taste, but because it is easier to wash a duvet sheet than a whole duvet, we recommend that you use duvet sheets. When you make the bed with a weighted duvet, the duvet may move around slightly in the cover. As a solution to this problem we stock specially designed sheets that can be fastened to the weighted duvet. Our duvet sheets come in a range of colours, sizes, and in the materials cotton, bamboo, and Tencel™ lyocell. Our duvets always come with pillow cases. Learn more about our duvet covers.
MAKING THE BED
Weighted duvets are, of course, heavy, so to avoid wear and tear in your shoulders we recommend that you lay the duvet on a flat surface and slide the duvet cover on bit by bit. When you buy one of our duvet covers, it comes with special instructions showing how you can easily attach the cover to the duvet.
