German term or phrase:mangelfeucht
Daunen können bei niedriger Temperatur (bis 5o °C, mangelfeucht)im Trockner getrocknet werden.
Explanation: Most tumble dryers come with up to 11 different drying programs that depend on the material and the level of final dryness. "Mangelfeucht" is rather old-fashioned, usually only used by laundries nowadays. Having said that, I was given an electric "Mangel = rotary iron" from Miele for a wedding present - totally brilliant for sheets, tablecloths etc. My tumbler uses "Bügelfeucht" and "Bügelfeucht plus".
Miele uses "rotary iron dry" for Mangelfeucht (see second ref.)
