It is difficult to say without knowing what duvet you have, some are washable at home and others can only be dry cleaned, usually putting a duvet out on the line is enough to freshen it up as wool will absorb the smell of its surroundings but there is a possibly that something may have been spilled on it or something like that which could be in fibres causing this, it would be best to have it cleaned but without knowing what you have it is hard to offer the correct advice, if you contact us by phone or livechat through our website we will be happy to discuss with you.

We have a king Size medium wool duvet (order 1130421) and the cat was sick on it last night. Nice.
We usually get our duvets (down and articificial fillings) dry cleaned in town and the label on this duvet says "Dry Clean Only" so ... it turns out that Johnsons don't dry clean duvets for Health & Safety reasons - they just wash them.
Can we wash this duvet like it says in https://www.thewoolroom.com/blog/can-you-wash-a-wool-duvet/ ?
Many thanks, and best wishes for 2022
