Can down be washed?
Yes, if the manufacturer recommends such care. Please refer to the manufacturers instructions for care of their specific product.

How do I clean my featherbed?
As featherbeds are very difficult to clean due to their weight and bulk, it is very important to use a protector to keep it as clean as possible and to extend its life. Follow manufacturers instructions for care and cleaning.
Can I protect my down and feather product during everyday use?
Yes you can!
Pillow: We recommend you use a pillow protector under your pillow case.
Duvets or Comforters: We recommend you use a duvet cover as part of your bedding.
This will help gaurd against any potential stains.
Storage of down products:
While it is fine to compress a down sleeping bag while camping or hiking, down products should not be compressed for extended lengths of time.
They should not be sat on for long periods of time, and should not have any heavy objects put on top of them.
They should be stored in a breathable bag, not plastic. After being stored for a long period of time, the item should be shaken to allow the down to reloft to its original condition.
