"How do I choose the right duvet for me?" It's a question we hear all the time at The Fine Bedding Company. We understand that selecting the ideal duvet can be quite a conundrum. With our extensive range of duvet sizes and options, including Smart Temperature, Breathe, Spundown, and Coverless, the choices can be overwhelming. After all, investing in the right duvet is essential, considering we spend a third of our lives cosying up in bed.

In this guide, we'll help you put those decision-making dilemmas to rest, ensuring you make an informed and confident choice. So, let's dive in and discover the perfect duvet that suits you best.

Looking For Duvet Tog Information? 

When it comes to choosing the right duvet Tog, consider the season and your comfort needs. For summertime, opt for a lower Tog, typically around 4.5. As spring and autumn bring varying temperatures, a slightly higher Tog of about 10.5 is ideal. For the chilly winter months, go even higher with a 13.5 Tog duvet.

If you're seeking more information on duvet togs, we've prepared a dedicated Duvet Tog Guide just for you. In it, we demystify what the tog rating means and guide you on selecting the best rating for each season.

Need To Know How To Wash Your Duvet?

If you're wondering about the best way to wash your duvet, we've got you covered with a separate Easy Cleaning Guide. Inside, we provide comprehensive instructions on properly and safely washing duvets of different kinds.

Which Duvet Filling Is Right For Me? 

Once you've settled on the perfect Tog rating, the next decision on your duvet-buying journey is selecting the right filling. Fibre-filled or natural? Your choice can greatly impact your comfort, and since we all have unique preferences, it's essential to ask, "Which filling is best for me?" The Fine Bedding Company has a wide range of materials and technologies in its duvets to appeal to everyone, but they generally fall into two categories: synthetic materials and natural naturals. 

Benefits Of Synthetic Fibre-filled Duvets

  • Anti-allergy properties ideal for allergy sufferers.
  • Easy to wash at home.
  • Ideal for those who prefer lighter duvets.
  • Offers technical benefits such as added breathability.

At The Fine Bedding Company, we take immense pride in our innovative products, constantly pushing the boundaries to introduce new technologies. Our duvets are no exception. The majority of our synthetic duvets feature our signature filling: Smartfil®. This ultra-lightweight filling provides the same level of warmth as its heavier counterparts.

Our duvets consist of more Smartfil® layers compared to cheaper hollow-fibre alternatives. This design traps more air, providing superior warmth, a luxurious "wrapped up" feeling, and a graceful drape to your bedding. Even after multiple washes, our duvet fibres maintain their silky softness and never deteriorate.

Did You Know? 

If regulating your body temperature at night is a challenge, you're not alone. In a recent survey, nearly two-thirds of our customers emphasised temperature management when selecting a duvet. For those who value temperature control, our Breathe duvet, containing Modal in its filling, is the ideal choice. Modal, derived from wood pulp sourced from self-sustaining forests, is a cellulosic fibre like cotton. These fibres excel at absorbing and dispersing body heat, keeping you cool at night for a restful sleep.

Synthetic Or Natural Duvet Filling? 

While many may assume that fibre-filled duvets outperform their natural counterparts, we at The Fine Bedding Company believe that natural fillings deserve more credit. Duvets with natural fillings are generally more breathable, making them suitable for year-round use. Additionally, they tend to outlast fibre-filled duvets due to the resilience of feathers and down, particularly when it comes to washing. Natural duvets tend to be heavier, making them an excellent choice if you prefer some weight in your duvet.
