Product FAQs

How should I clean my duvet inner?

Purely Dorset inners are machine washable.  We recommend washing them on a wool wash at less than 30oC water temperature. They are also dry cleanable.

What is the difference between the summer and winter weights?

The summer weight is 350 gsm and the winter is 500 gsm.  GSM is grams per square metre. 

The weight to choose depends largely on where you live as well as whether or not you heat your home during the night in winter.

We recommend a summer weight one for all year round use (adding a blanket to the bed in the winter). 

In Auckland we use a 350 gsm one from October through to April and a 500 gsm one from April through to September. We do not heat our home at night.
