Looking for something organic and eco-friendly? Something that will be good for your sleep and for the planet? Look no more – Panda Cloud Duvet has you covered!
Panda Cloud Duvet is all about eco-friendliness. The inside of this duvet is made of bamboo (50%) and nano microfibre (50), while the outside is made of soft sateen cotton.
And, you know what that means? It means that it is 100% hypoallergenic! Its tog rating is 10.5 which means that, even if you try, you just can't get cold.
However, even though this duvet comes with many pros, there are some cons we have to mention. And, those cons are that it is not suitable for hot sleepers and that it is rather expensive.
Here's another anti-allergy duvet made for all those who just can't stand all that dust and dirt. The famous Nectar duvet comes to the rescue of all allergy sufferers.
This microfibre duvet is made entirely of microfiber. So, from that, you can guess that it is very soft, fluffy, and comfortable. Moreover, since microfibre is hypoallergenic, you will not have to worry about those allergens keeping you awake at night.
Another great thing that allergy sufferers will love about Nectar Duvet is that it can be washed and dried in those machines you have at home. The only thing you will have to keep in mind with this one is a higher microfibre tog (10.5).
So, plan to use it only during the winter and replace it with something thinner as soon as spring arrives.
If your body temperature is going up and down while you are sleeping, then you need to get one of those temperature-regulating duvets! That is, you need to get Simba Hybrid Duvet.
Simba Hybrid Duvet is for all those people whose body temperature changes all the time. That is, it is for both hot and cold sleepers.
It is hypoallergenic, durable, and, according to all that have tested it, it is of great quality. That's it – this duvet comes with pros only. No, that is not true, it comes with one con – when compared to other similar duvets, this one is very expensive.
So, if you're a budget-oriented person, it might not be the best duvet on the market. But you have to take into account that this one duvet can basically cover you for the entire year!
So far, we've covered a few very warm duvets. However, they mostly stayed within the 10.5 to 13.5 TOG range. But that stops with this duvet!
With a TOG rating of 15, the Fogarty Soft Touch Duvet can really get you through the coldest of winters. And if you live in a very cold climate, or just get cold easily, this is a life-changed!
It manages to be this warm thanks to its hollowfibre filling that traps your body heat way before it has the time to dissipate. And while this filling isn't natural, it does use some recycled materials, so it is eco-friendly (more or less).
But probably the biggest selling point for a lot of people is how affordable this winter duvet is! Coming in at half the price of most other winter duvets, we'd say it's quite a steal. However, you do have to keep in mind that you can only use it during late autumn and winter.

Before you go to your favorite duvet store, there are certain things you should learn about duvets. The first thing is that just as there are many different people out there, there are also many different duvets. What works for you, may not work for the person next to you.
Thus, think about your current duvet. Then, think about the way you sleep. Are you sleeping and waking up tired? Do you wake up in the middle of the night feeling cold? Are you tossing and turning all night long because you are too hot and uncomfortable?
Or, you coughing and sneezing and waking up with a runny nose and itchy eyes because of that allergies. If the answer to any of these questions is a YES – you need a new duvet.
But, not just any duvet – you need the best duvet cover in the UK. To do that, take the following features into consideration.
When you go to the duvet store and when you pick up a duvet, the first thing you will see is the so-called tog rating. But, what does that ‘tog' actually mean? Well, simply put, tog is a measure of heat insulation. In other words, if the tog duvet is higher, your duvet will produce more warmth. If the tog duvet is lower, your duvet will produce less warmth.
Measurements start with a 1 tog rating and go all the way up to a 15 tog rating. Lower numbers claim that the duvet is thinner and lightweight, and thus, that it provides less warmth. Higher numbers claim that the duvet is thicker, bigger, and heavyweight, and thus, that it provides more warmth.
However, with so many tog duvets to choose from, how does one decide? Well, one has to take two things into consideration – the room's temperature and personal preferences. It is simple, if you are sleeping in a cold room, you need a high tog duvet. If you are sleeping in a hot room, you need a duvet with a lower tog rating. If you are a hot sleeper, you need a lower tog duvet, and if you are a cold sleeper, you need a higher tog duvet.
And, if you just can't make up your mind, you can always go for a 13.5 tog duvet. This one was tested by many different ‘sleepers' and proved to be the best for the winter months.
Once you figured out what duvet tog is right for you, it is time to think about the duvet filling you'll choose.
Most people go for synthetic duvets. They are practical, affordable, and easy to maintain. Moreover, because they are so easy to wash and dry, they are also a great anti-allergy duvet choice. There are two types of synthetic fibers that can be used for making this duvet – microfibre and hollow fiber.
However, if you don't like synthetic duvets, you can always go for something more natural. That is, you can choose duvets made of wool, silk, or cotton. All of these are temperature-regulating and relatively easy to take care of.
Finally, you have feather and down duvets. These may be the best option for those cold sleepers and those who prefer sleeping in colder rooms. However, feather and down duvets have some flaws. Namely, they are not easy to wash and dry, and thus, they are not easy to take care of. Moreover, these duvets are not naturally hypoallergenic – people who have heavy allergies may worsen their condition with feather and down duvets.
Synthetic and natural duvets are relatively easy to maintain. You can just place them in a washing machine, wash them at 30'C, and air-dry them. This is something you cannot do with feather and down duvets – the only cleaning they can have is airing-out on a warm and sunny day.
However, if you have a feather and down duvet, don't just throw it away if it gets dirty and dusty. The dirt you can spot clean. And, you can get rid of dust by previously mentioned air-outing. Then, once your duvet is dirt and dust-free, get yourself a duvet cover.
And, if possible, go for a cotton cover as this one can be easily washed and dried at any time and at any temperature.
Moreover, when it comes to storing, well, keep in mind that you will need a lot of storage space. All winter duvets will use up half of your under-bed storage.
If you want to buy the best winter duvet for yourself, just like previously mentioned, take tog, filling, and maintenance into consideration. These are the most important things to pay attention to in order to choose a duvet that will keep you pleasantly warm during winter's chilly nights.
However, these are not the only things to keep in mind when going duvet shopping. In order to buy the best duvet, think about the following as well:
When going shopping for a new duvet, it is also important to give yourself time. You will need time to do a research on all the different types of duvets. And, you will need time to do a research on your sleep hygiene. Once you are familiar with these two, you can go duvet shopping – which is something that will also take time. Thus, give yourself that time – don't rush it. And, if you ever get tired, just think how amazing your nights will be once you find that perfect duvet.
Has any of the above-mentioned duvets tickled your fancy? We know that it has! Everybody wants a duvet that transforms icy nights into warm ones and bad sleep quality into improved sleep quality. Thus, don't even think much – if your bedroom lacks a duvet of this kind, go shopping ASAP.
However, we understand that you need to be persuaded a bit more. That is why we will share with you some benefits and advantages of owing a winter duvet:

Lastly, let's go over some of the common FAQs we've run into while making our list of the best winter duvets. And if there's anything we've missed, feel free to get in contact with us directly!
Ideally, a winter duvet should be 10.5 tog or higher.
If you have a duvet made of synthetic or natural (cotton, silk, etc.) fibers, yes, you can wash it. But, if you have a duvet made of down or feather, no, you cannot wash it.
You should wash your duvet at the beginning of every season.
You should replace your winter duvet as soon as spring arrives. Or, you should replace it when your nights start to feel a bit warm.
You can, but it airdrying is much better for duvets.
You can airdry your duvet when the weather is dry, warm, and sunny to get rid of dust and smells. And, to make it smell nicer, you can spray it with fabric softener or with your own mixture of water and essential oils.
It is recommended that you wash your duvet in mild water – 30'C should be perfect.
