Having the right duvet can make a huge difference to your sleep quality, but it can be tricky to know where to start Here’s everything you need to know about choosing the best bedding for you


Natural duvet fillings

You can either choose a natural or synthetic filling for your duvet. Each one has different benefits, so the filling that is right for you is the one that best fits your needs and preferences.

One of the advantages of a natural filling such as wool or goose down is their ability to regulate your body temperature throughout the year. Thanks to the natural fibres found in these duvets, your skin can truly breathe as you sleep. For a lighter feel without sacrificing thermal performance, choose one with a higher down content. If you prefer a cosy, weighted duvet, opt for one with a higher feather content.

Synthetic duvet fillings

A synthetic duvet is plumper and often heavier than a natural duvet. It can be filled with hollow fibres or microfibres. Hollow fibres are thicker and easily trap warmth, whereas microfibres are extra-fine and can often mimic the qualities of natural duvets. All our synthetic duvets are made with recycled polyester.

Our Soft as Down duvets are designed to give a down-like feel whilst our Ultimate Comfort range stays feeling full for the most ultimate night’s sleep. Our Supremely Washable range is quick drying, so you can have it washed, dried and back on the bed in the same day, for a fresher, healthier sleep.
