Why do I have to replace down- and- feather- filled bedding products after a certain time?

Even though you have always cared for the bedding products, e. g. you have never beaten of vacuum-cleaned them, the down and feathers will increasingly lose their original resiliency over time which is a natural ageing process.

During the sleep down and feathers undergo mechanical stress for up to 8 hours every day. So they might get crushed. Moreover, they are affected by other factors for instance by sweat which makes them dehydrate. All this is a natural process which you cannot prevent. The shells which are natural products made of cotton might get porous as well in the course of time.
 
Please, take into account that you use the bedding products day by day, year after year for several hours so that they are stressed considerably. You cannot compare them to normal clothes which you do not wear every day. For restful sleep you should purchase a new pillow or duvet at regular intervals.

Suddenly the duvet does not keep the body warm any longer. Why?

Since down and feathers are natural materials they undergo a certain natural ageing process. In the course of time the filling gradually desiccates and you will find an increasing number of broken and damaged down and feathers. You can slow down the process by proper care (fluff up the duvet or pillow every day and air them regularly), but you cannot stop it.
 
If your duvet is not worn out, you should have it cleaned to remove residue such as sweat.

If your duvet is not worn out, you should have it cleaned to remove residue such as sweat. Besides, worn out filling components, in particular broken down and feathers are picked out and replaced by new material.
 
If your duvet has been used for a very long time, it will hardly be worthwhile to have it cleaned. You should rather consider to purchase a new one.
It is generally advised to replace a pillow after 5 years of use at the latest. You should purchase a new duvet after 8 to 10 years.
