If the duvet that you were sleeping under this summer was perfect for you, then it may be time to consider a switch up as the cool weather slowly creeps in.
The “right” room temperature for a comfortable sleep is such a personal thing. The same goes for the amount of weight that you want to sleep under – it varies from person to person. But we do know that these factors are critical for a restful sleep.
Duvets come in a wide range of fills to suit a wide range of sleep needs. From natural fibres, like silk and down, to synthetic options like microfiber and polyester. A good quality duvet will insulate against the cold, while remaining breathable and moisture wicking, so you stay warm without getting sweaty.
Here are our choices for the all-around perfect duvets for the new season.
Down: Legacy Hutterite Duvet or Cachet Hungarian Goose Down Duvet
Down describes the light and fluffy plumules which form an insulating layer on the belly of ducks or geese. Because it is a natural insulator, down is incredibly effecting at trapping in warmth and keeping out cold.
Cachet Hungarian Goose Down duvet shell is an elegant cotton striped jacquard sewn in a baffle box construction to ensure an even distribution of down. The baffle box constructions also ensure even warmth through the duvet without leaving cold spots. Machine washable, the Cachet duvet is true luxury.
