First off, this duvet features 100% organic and traceable wool as the duvet filling, meaning that you get all the perks high-quality wool usually offers. So, temperature regulation is top notch and the duvet even wicks away any excess moisture that might develop during the night.
On top of this, the Chatsworth Collection Washable Wool duvet also sports a 100% cotton cover that further amps the breathability and feels soft to the touch. Not to mention that it's also a naturally hypoallergenic material.
And if you still weren't sold on this duvet, just know that it's also machine washable. So, maintenance is honestly as easy as it gets. Sure, it might not be as fluffy as feather duvets but it's still a premium product!

This duvet is remarkable in quite a few ways. For one, it has a high-quality Hungarian goose feather and down filling, with the split being 90% in favour of down. This means that you should expect an incredibly soft and fluffy duvet that you can truly sink into as you fall asleep.
Plus, the Scooms Hungarian Goose Down duvet comes with an interesting offer, as you can get a double pack with different TOG ratings. This means that you should be set regardless of the weather outside!
So, while this is undoubtedly a bit more expensive than some other duvets, it offers a noticeable level of quality and can keep you comfortable year-round.

If you feel like a down duvet would be the ideal choice for you but your budget doesn't quite allow for the Scooms model, the Silentnight Hungarian Goose feather & down duvet should be your ideal choice!
Although it's still more expensive than cheap synthetic models, this duvet features the soft and fluffy feeling of down duvets while still being reasonably priced. Plus, it sports a higher TOG rating than the Scooms model, making it ideal for winter.
Not to mention that the covers are also 100% cotton, so you're still getting that silky smooth feeling once you get under the duvet. All in all, a premium-quality product that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

The first thing we'd like to discuss when it comes to this duvet is sustainability. Usually, when something is synthetic, you assume it's killing our planet in some way. However, OTTY claims that their Deluxe Microfibre duvet is completely sustainable.
On top of that, it's also extremely warm, coming in at a whopping 13.5 TOG. So, if you commonly get cold at night or live in a colder climate, this duvet is bound to change your life. And the sateen cover is pretty nice to the touch as well.
We can't say that it's an all-season duvet, especially when compared to something like a Simba Hybrid duvet, but it's still more than impressive. Definitely a duvet you should keep your eye on if you want to stay nice and cosy during winter.

Coming in at just a fraction of the price of the other duvets mentioned so far, the Slumberdown All Seasons duvet is by far the most budget-friendly option. However, that doesn't mean that it's low quality either!
Just like the Scooms model, this is a two-pack duvet that should cover you throughout the entire year, with the thinner model being 4.5 TOG and ideal for summer while the two duvets combined reach a whopping 15 TOG and are ideal for winter.
The covers aren't removable, which makes maintenance a bit more annoying, but we'd say that's a small price to pay when the product itself has…well, such a small price to pay. So, it's definitely worth considering if you don't want to pay a premium price.

Before we get into the meat and potatoes of finding the best wool duvet, let's first establish whether a wool duvet is the right choice for you. Although it does possess some amazing qualities, it might not be the ideal choice for everyone.
For example, if having a fluffy duvet is your number one priority, then you'd be better off with a down duvet. This is because a wool filling makes for a heavier duvet plus it's a lot firmer than down or goose feather. So, keep that in mind before getting a wool-filled duvet.
Secondly, if your budget is very tight, the best duvet for you is probably in the synthetic section. Since they're easier to mass-produce, synthetic duvets are generally a bit cheaper, as premium materials tend to come with a premium price. Nevertheless, we suggest looking at microfibre duvets if you're looking for a reasonably priced synthetic duvet that can keep you warm.
Lastly, although wool makes for an excellent temperature-regulating duvet, there are even cooler options on the market. So, if you're only looking for a summer duvet, you'd probably get a better night's sleep looking for a lighter duvet.
Okay, if you're still with us, that means you've decided that wool duvets are the perfect choice for you. So, let's go over some of the features you should look out for when shopping for the best wool duvet and explain why they're so important.
Duvet covers can often be overlooked but trust us, they're essential for a good night's sleep. This is because they're in direct contact with your skin and impact the breathability of your duvet to a significant degree.
So, what should you look for? First off, since wool duvets are natural duvets, we suggest looking for a natural cover as well – especially if you're environmentally conscious. A bamboo cover will likely do you the most good, as they're also extremely breathable, but organic cotton can do the job as well.
And while most of the best duvets already come with hypoallergenic covers, it never hurts to check. After all, an anti-allergy duvet is pointless when placed inside a cover that's prone to attract dust mites. And if you want to learn more about duvet covers, we have the perfect article for you!
As we've mentioned previously, wool fibres are a natural material. And just like all natural fibres, they keep your allergies at bay and make it difficult for bacteria and dust mites to form in or on the duvet.
Nevertheless, seeking out a duvet with the appropriate anti-allergic certificates is always a good idea as you want to be 100% certain – especially if the duvet is going to be used by allergy sufferers.
Plus, you can also look out for certifications like the Oeko-Tex badge for added security, as you'll then know that everything was done up to code. And if you want to be as ethical as possible, you can also look towards brands such as The Wool Room which use completely traceable wool as well – so that you know the animals have a certain level of protection.
Lastly, let's talk about the sizing and the TOG. When it comes to size, it's pretty simple. Whether you have a Single, Double, King or Super King mattress, you can find a duvet of the same size. Just make sure that you're looking at a duvet and not a comforter, as the two differ slightly.
When it comes to the TOG rating, it just describes how warm the duvet is going to be. So, if you live in a warmer climate, don't go for a duvet with a TOG rating of 13 or above. And if you want to know more about how the TOG scale works, we have an article on that very topic.
However, we will point out that wool is generally quite forgiving when it comes to TOG. This is because it easily maintains its own little micro-climate and regulates the temperature accordingly. In fact, if you're sharing a wool duvet with a partner, it can even feel like a split TOG duvet at times.
Of course, a proper dual TOG duvet is going to be a lot more precise but the point is that wool can generally suit your needs even if you miss the mark when it comes to the TOG rating.
If you want the cliff notes of everything we've said so far, here it is! Make sure that you get a breathable cover so that the wool can maintain good temperature regulation. Check whether a wool duvet is actually ideal for you. And gauge approximately what TOG rating would suit your needs.
Now that we presented you with so many wool alternative duvets, you might be tempted to overlook wool after all. However, you should keep in mind what you're missing. After all, wool is one of the best materials when it comes to temperature regulation. Not to mention that it also wicks away moisture and is usually a bit heavier – making you feel nice and snug.
Absolutely! Wool makes for an excellent isolator and can make the harshest of winters seem rather cosy.
Although some wool duvets are machine-washable, check the care label to be certain. Some wool duvets might not have to be washed at all, as wool stays clean for a long time.
Wool duvets are generally rather durable, potentially even lasting a lifetime if cared for properly. However, we suggest swapping them out every 5-10 years.
