What is the best type of duvet to buy?
Choosing the right duvet can have a significant impact on your quality of sleep, so it is worth taking the time to figure out which duvet is right for you. Whether you prefer a light, silky blanket or an incredibly warm down, we will help you to find the perfect duvet for a luxurious and blissful sleep experience
When choosing the right duvet, there are several factors you need to consider. Firstly, what tog do you want? The tog refers to how effective the duvet is at maintaining heat and indicates the warmth of the duvet. The higher the tog, the warmer the duvet is.
It is also important to look at what the duvet is filled with. Duvets that are filled with feather are heavier and less expensive but don’t offer the same comforts as down, which are warmer and more lightweight. If cared for properly, down duvets are more durable and can last twice as long as synthetic ones. They are brilliant in keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter and provide a cosiness that is unrivalled by other duvets.
Another factor to consider when choosing your ideal duvet is fill power. Down fill power measures the quality and effectiveness of the down. The fluffier the down is, the more air pockets that are created, causing the duvet to be lighter and more insulating than synthetic or feather duvets.
The quality of down can vary depending on different factors, such as the maturity of the bird and its species. Higher quality down will provide the same or better insulation with less filling.
Hungarian goose down
Hungarian goose down duvets are wonderfully light and comfortable, offering unparalleled warmth and a 'cloud-like' feel. Considered the best down filling on the market, Hungarian goose down duvets are of high quality and provide a luxuriously soft and blissful sleep experience, unrivalled by other products.
Hungarian goose down consists of large spherical clusters of down. This structure creates air bubbles, allowing the duvet to contour to the shape of your body, while still maintaining its shape. The air pockets make the down resilient to stress and prevent it from losing its shape, ensuring that the duvet maintains its functionality for a long period of time.
Hungarian geese have adapted to their harsh climate, with their feathers providing them with thermal qualities they need to survive. Thus, their down is of high quality and provides a luxuriously soft and warm sleep experience with ultimate heat insulation.
Siberian goose down
Providing luxury, warmth and durability, a Siberian goose down duvet is the top choice for you if you live in a colder climate.

The geese in which the down is sourced from have the ability to survive in one of nature’s coldest climates. The insulating properties of the down make this duvet perfect for people living in colder regions.
Silk duvets are the right temperature all year round. They are superbly warm in the winter and refreshingly cool during hotter nights. Although they are more expensive than other natural filled duvets, a silk duvet provides a breathable and blissful nights sleep, alongside many other benefits.
