The size of the duvet depends on the one hand on the size of your mattress and on the other hand on your height. The larger the person or mattress, the larger the duvet. The standard size is 135 x 200 cm. We recommend a duvet length of 220 cm for people who are taller than 180 cm. Rule of thumb: your duvet should be at least 20 cm longer than you are tall. The feel-good size of 155 x 220 cm is becoming more and more important. Anyone who likes to snuggle up is well served with this size.
Blankets that are filled with fine animal hair do not usually have to be washed because they have a high level of self-cleaning power. Airing new wool or camel hair duvets properly is quite sufficient. Gladly also outside in humid air, because then the fiber straightens up again after subsequent drying and regains its natural bulking power. Cotton blankets are washable, but should not be spun and shaken vigorously. Ideally, spread the blanket out on a drying rack to dry. She will thank you.
