Kapok baby duvet and junior duvet

A kapok baby duvet or junior duvet is a luxury duvet when only the best will do.

Kapok is a legume harvested from the kapok tree, which can resemble a palm tree. The plant that grows on the outside of the pod is used to fill duvets, pillows and mattress toppers.

All duvets with kapok fibres automatically adjust to the temperature

All Kapok duvets are also all-year duvets - they automatically adapt to the climate and temperature. A great duvet if you quickly get too cold or too hot when sleeping.

At Rene-Naturprodukter we sell delicious duvets, pillows and mattress toppers with kapok fibres

What is kapok fibre?

The fibres are taken from a kapok tree, which looks a bit like a palm tree. The seeds look like the picture, from which the natural fibres can be extracted. No chemicals or other harmful substances are used in the manufacturing process. The material is therefore 100 % organic.

Kapok fibre is a sustainable product as it grows on trees and keeps coming without the tree having to be cut down or otherwise damaged.

Because it is a natural material, kapok fibres are temperature-regulating, hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Duvets with these fibres, e.g. from Cocoon, are a bit more expensive than other duvets, but in return the duvet has unique properties.

The brand Cocoon makes the most delicious products with kapok fibres. Kapok baby duvets, Kapok junior duvets, Kapok adult duvets as well as top mattresses, pillows and roll mattresses with the delicious Kapok fibres.

4 things you need to know about junior duvets

Answers to 4 questions about junior duvets.

How big is a junior duvet?

The size of a junior duvet is usually 100 x 140 cm. This means that it is about twice as long as a baby's duvet. These are the standard measurements, but there are some junior duvets that have other measurements. Always check this before buying bedding for the duvet.

Junior duvet - when?

It varies a lot when you switch to a junior duvet. You have to look at how big your child is, and not least whether he or she seems happy with their duvets. Immediately, children should not change to a junior duvet until they are 7-8 months old and can turn around themselves. A junior duvet is obviously bigger than a baby duvet, and can therefore quickly become too heavy for a small child who can't get it off by himself if it gets too hot.

What is an hypoallergenic duvet?

Dust mites do not thrive in an hypoallergenic duvet. Always check if the junior duvet is hypoallergenic before you buy it. The most important thing is that the duvet can be washed at 60 degrees, as all dust mites die at this temperature.

Buying a used junior duvet - is it a good idea?

It is recommended that duvets and mattresses are purchased new. This is because they become less resistant to dust mites over time. Therefore, it is a good idea to buy the duvet from new.
