In this Aeyla Air Duvet review, we're going to determine whether this duvet is what you need to get some proper rest! So, let's go over all its features and see what it has to offer.

Various sleep products made from eucalyptus, bamboo and other natural materials have become increasingly popular in recent years. Sam and Matt, the Aeyla founders, have brought some great products to the UK market, and we have tested for you the Aeyla Air duvet, one of the products from their eucalyptus collection which also includes additional pieces of sleep equipment.

So, let's go over everything you need to know about the Aeyla Air Duvet and discuss who it's best suited for. And if you have any questions after reading this review, feel free to ask us in the comment section!

NOTE: The Aeyla's Air Duvet is Out of Stock Until May 2024

Hey there, sleepyheads! So, here's the deal – the Aeyla Air Duvet might be taking a power nap right now and won't be back in stock until May 2024. Bummer, we know! But don't hit snooze on your search for the ultimate comfort just yet, 'cause we've got a hot tip for you!

Meet the Panda Cloud duvet – the next best thing to wrap yourself in dreamy bliss. It's like snuggling up with a fluffy panda (minus the bamboo). This bad boy keeps your temperature in check and is built to last, just like those bamboo forests. So, hang tight and get ready to snuggle up in pure comfort with the Panda Cloud duvet.

Who is the Aeyla Air duvet for?

Anyone who needs a comfortable, hypoallergenic and breathable duvet that will give you cloud-like comfort, is the right person for Aeyla Air eucalyptus duvet. It is available in two options, for summer and for the whole year. 

The 4.5 TOG model is ideal for summer, and hot sleepers who live in a warm climate or have central heating will use it all year round.

 10.5 TOG is a great example of an all-season duvet for the average UK customer, who doesn't need a real summer duvet or a duvet for very cold days.

What do we use this product for?

Simply put, we use the Aeyla Air duvet to make us comfortable and to have a more restful night sleep than with some other duvet. And it makes us comfortable because it’s soft, light and cool. In addition, we use it because it is hypoallergenic and dust mites free, so Aeyla Air duvet is also suitable for allergy-sufferers. Although this eucalyptus duvet does not directly affect preserving of Amazon rainforest it is still eco-friendly as it is sourced in a sustainable way from Austrian woods.

Aeyla Air duvet is a perfect pick for:

Features you should know about the Aeyla Air duvet

We will elaborate all the features you should know about Aeyla Air duvet in this part of our review. You will learn all about eucalyptus fill as well as other most important features.

Eucalyptus fill

Aeyla Air duvet is filled with 100% soft eucalyptus silk known also as eucalyptus lyocell, and there are various reasons why many sleep companies have started using eucalyptus for their products. Eucalyptus is very soft and silk-like. It is also highly breathable, but we can say that some other materials, such as cotton and high-quality polyester, have similar characteristics.

What sets eucalyptus apart from other similar materials is eco-friendliness. It requires 10x less water than cotton, which means that carbon footprint is significantly reduced. The company Aeyla uses eucalyptus harvested from regenerative forests in Austria and the Czech Republic, so all regulations are followed. Also, this duvet is OEKO-TEX certified, meaning it is free from any harmful chemicals or toxins, making it 100% eco-friendly.

Perfect all-season duvet

If you buy Aeyla Air duvet 10.5 TOG you most likely have a duvet for every season. TOG rating tells you how warm a duvet will keep you. Duvets on the United Kingdom market usually have a TOG between 3 and 15, although ultra-light versions with a TOG rating of 2 can also be found, as well as very warm over 15 TOG.

10.5 TOG is right in the middle and so it will be good for both hot and cold days as it is rarely scorching hot and very cold in the UK. 10.5 TOG might be too hot for summer but due to great breathability, everyone except hot sleepers will be able to use it all the time. During the winter it will be able to keep you warm enough.

Great for hot sleepers

A person who constantly feels hot at night can be considered hot sleepers. In general, the sleep industry has the most problems adapting products to them, because memory foam, and also some other popular materials, do not suit them.

Aeyla Air duvet is a great choice for hot sleepers because it is highly breathable and cooling. 10.5 TOG will suit them for most of the year, and for the summer they can buy 4.5 TOG model which will cool them perfectly during the hottest days of the year.

Lightweight

Although the weighted blanket is Aeyla's most famous product, this duvet is intended for those who want very light duvets. Aeyla Air duvet is very lightweight, soft and fluffy, so it is an ideal choice for all those who want to barely feel any weight on themselves. By purchasing this duvet, you guarantee yourself cloud-like comfort.

Hypoallergenic & allergen-free

Anyone who has allergies, asthma or some other similar problem can use Aeyla Air duvet without fear that it may cause an allergic reaction. Eucalyptus is a 100% hypoallergenic material that is unsuitable for dust mites and other allergens, so it is allergen-free.  OEKO-TEX certification is another important feature for allergy sufferers because chemicals can also negatively affect their condition, and in this case there are no harmful chemicals. We suggest you to use hypoallergenic sheets and pillow too.

Highly durable

Since this is not a cheap duvet, it will be important for you to know that it is highly durable and that you will be able to use it for years if you maintain it according to the instructions.

Review of the Aeyla Air duvet

Our reviewer sleeping under Aeyla air duvet

Aeyla Air duvet is a very comfortable duvet that is soft and lightweight. It is made from 100% super soft eucalyptus silk that is harvested from regenerative forests in Austria and the Czech Republic, and as it requires 10 times less water than cotton, so this is an eco-friendly and vegan-friendly alternative to down and polyester duvets. There are two options available to you – 4.5 TOG and 10.5 TOG.

4.5 TOG is for summer to give you sweat free sleep, perfect even for hot sleepers, while 10.5 TOG is an all-season duvet which is also very light considering which TOG rating it has.

Durability is great, and it is also 100% hypoallergenic and OEKO-TEX certified so it is safe for everyone. It is popular choice for hot sleepers. Duvet is not machine washable but you have to clean it at dry cleaner. You can buy duvet cover that is machine washable and also made from 100% eucalyptus silk.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Material: 100% Eucalyptus silk
  • Softness: 9.5/10
  • Size: Single, Double, King, Super King

3 things that we liked about the Aeyla Air duvet

2 things we didn’t like about the Aeyla Air duvet

Check the alternatives to the Aeyla Air duvet

If you like the Aeyla Air duvet but are looking for something just a bit different, we have you covered! We chose the Panda Cloud duvet as the perfect alternative.

Panda Cloud Duvet

If you liked the Aeyla Air Duvet, you'll likely love the Panda Cloud Duvet just as much! Aside from just the similar name, it carries over some of the best parts of the Aeyla Air Duvet plus some bonus features!

Instead of eucalyptus, the Panda Cloud Duvet uses bamboo in order to keep the duvet both breathable and eco-friendly. Plus, bamboo also makes for a hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial sleeping surface! So, you shouldn't have any issues when it comes to allergies or germs.

It's also a 10.5 TOG duvet. So, it should come in handy regardless of the season. And while still not exactly cheap, the Panda Cloud Duvet is still a bit easier on your wallet than the Aeyla Air. So, we could definitely see why some people might prefer one over the other.

Consider the Panda Bamboo pillow if you are buying the Aeyla Air duvet

Regardless of whether you're getting the Aeyla Air or the Panda Cloud, the Panda Bamboo Pillow could make for an excellent addition! After all, what's the point of having the best duvet if you don't have the best pillow to go with it?

3rd generation memory foam is uniquely supportive and will put your head, neck and spin in the perfect position. Bamboo cover is soft, durable, hypoallergenic and grown pesticide free. It comes with a 10 year warranty and an additional in-built pillow protector.

Panda is a recognised brand and it is known for their eco-friendly and sustainably made products. The overall quality is fantastic and this is one of those pillows that is worth every quid you pay for!

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

There aren’t a lot of duvets or other products in the sleep industry that are 100% made from eucalyptus and that’s what sets this duvet apart and makes it better about other similar ones. Also that’s why it’s eco-friendly and vegan-friendly.

We really like the other features too. It is comfortable, soft and lightweight, so sleeping under it will be very pleasant. An all-season option is available and you won’t have to spend money and storage space on two duvets. It should be mentioned that it is hypoallergenic.

How did we test the product?

An image of a woman testing the Aeyla air duvet

You need to decide what size and TOG rating you want when ordering. Aeyla offers free shipping on all orders over £ 30 so you want to have to pay additional for shipping. In case you want express shipping, you will have to pay for it. Standard shipping is normally 48hours if ordered before 2pm but a delay may occur and then you will wait 3 to 5 business days for the product to be delivered to you.

We ordered two duets, so we could test both TOG ratings, and they arrived within the scheduled 48 hours. Off-gassing is barely present, so you will be able to use it right away.

As soon as we started testing, we noticed how light and soft both models are. They are very comfortable and will give you a good night's sleep. 4.5 TOG you will use during the summer when you need a cooling duvet, and 10.5 TOG you can use all year round, even in summer. We were not hot under it although we tested it in a room where it was very warm.

As for maintenance, we did not test it here because it is only suitable for dry cleaning. Machine washable duvet covers are very useful, so we tested Aeyla duvet cover that is also soft, silk-like and machine washable, but the question is whether it is necessary to be so pricey. The cover regulates the temperature very well and is pleasant for your skin, so we don't dispute its quality, we just think that it could be a bit cheaper.

Conclusion

In conclusion, if you're looking for an eco-friendly all-season duvet, the Aeyla Air Duvet should be right up your alley! Sure, it's a bit more expensive but it's also rather high-quality. But after reading our Aeyla Air Duvet Review, what do you think? Let us know in the comments if you're thinking of getting the Aeyla Air Duvet and what the deciding factor for you was!
