Who is the Night Lark duvet for?

It was hard for us to find a group of customers for whom the Night Lark coverless duvet would potentially not be good for. So, it can be said that Night Lark is a duvet for practically everyone.

Available in two warmth and four sizes, hypoallergenic and home washable, it can give everyone a good night's sleep. You can choose between five different colours, so it will once again meet the expectations of most customers. Of course, one-size-fits-all does not exist, but this duet is very close to that.

What do we use this product for?

What we use the Night Lark coverless duvet for depends on whether you choose the year-round 10.5 TOG version or the summer 4.5 TOG version. We use the year-round model to keep us warm in winter, but also to make us feel comfortable when it is warm. The summer version is a light duvet, which is ideal for the warmer months.

Features you should know about the Night Lark duvet

So far, we have told you some general characteristics of this product. However, we know that is not enough for you to create a valid opinion about the Night Lark coverless duvet. Now comes the part of our review where we break down each important feature individually.

Summer & All-Season TOGs

The manufacturer has decided to offer two versions of this duvet – summer and all season. First, let's explain what TOG is. TOG stands for thermal overall grade and is used in textile and similar industries to show thermal resistance. For warmer days, a TOG rating between 3 and 7 is recommended, all season duvets have a TOG rating between 7 and 12, while over that the TOG rating is suitable for winter.

You can buy a 4.5 TOG summer Night Lark coverless duvet and a 10.5 TOG all-season Night Lark coverless duvet. That’s usually enough for the winter because the climate in the UK is mild and most people have central heating. However, in colder regions, a warmer duvet than this may be needed for the winter.

Soft printed polyester cover

The polyester cover is very soft and comfortable so we think it will suit even those customers who prefer cotton. It is very gentle on the skin and you really don't need a separate duvet cover.

The printed polyester cover looks nice no matter what colour you choose, and what is even more important is durability. We don't expect wear and tear to appear any time soon, although you will wash it often.

100% Smartfill polyester from Recycled PET bottles

We are always happy when we have the opportunity to test an eco-friendly product because it shows us that more and more manufacturers are thinking about preserving our environment and using sustainable materials. This duvet is filled with Smartfil polyester.

Smartfill polyester is obtained from recycled PET bottles. So remember when you buy a Night Lark coverless duvet you participate in the efforts to reduce the huge pollution since less plastic gets to the ocean when PET bottles are recycled. Smartfill polyester filling is soft and cosy just like microfibre.

Hypoallergenic

The Night Lark Coverless Duvet is a great choice for all people who suffer from allergies. It is made of hypoallergenic materials and is not a suitable environment for dust mites and other common allergens. Also, because you can fully wash it, it will always be perfectly clean, free of dust, dead skin cells, body oils and other dirt.

Even if you do not have allergies, do not forget that allergies can occur in any part of your life. Many people did not have allergies until they were exposed to allergens, but then they developed allergies. So surround yourself with hypoallergenic products, especially when it comes to sleep products.

Machine washable at 40ºC

We have already mentioned several times that the duvet is fully machine washable. This is necessary since it is coverless. Put the whole thing into the washing machine – you can wash this in cold water or up to 40ºC. Our recommendation is to use eco-friendly detergents both for environmental protection and to make the coverless duvet last longer. It is suitable for a standard washing machine.

You must not use bleach or dry clean this product.

Quick drying time of 90 minutes

Since you will wash it whole every time, you are probably wondering how much time it takes to dry because you don’t want to be without your duvet for a few days every time you wash it.

You will be thrilled to hear that it only takes 90 minutes to dry completely and be ready to use. So you can use it the same day when you wash it. Tumble dry it until thoroughly dry, so that mould does not appear. Use a low heat setting.

Another option is to leave it to air dry on the washing line in the Summer months when it is warm outside.

Review of Night Lark duvet

An image of a The Sleep Advisors reviewer testing the Night Owl duvet

Night Lark coverless duvet is a premium duvet made by The Fine Bedding Company, well-known for its fitted sheets, duvet covers, duvets, pillows, pillow cases but also other various collections. It is available in both summer 4.5 TOG and all-season 10.5 TOG.

It is up to you to choose which one you want. Both are coverless duvets, meaning there is no tedious task, and that task is changing the duvet cover every week. Instead of changing the duvet cover, just pop the duvet in the washing machine and wash it at 40ºC. Then dry it in a tumble dryer and in a few hours, you have a clean and dry duvet ready to use.

What we like about Night Lark duvet

  • Night Lark coverless duvet is very soft and comfortable.
  • Very easy to maintain since it is fully machine washable.
  • It is hypoallergenic which is very important both for allergy sufferers and the rest of the population.

What we didn’t like about Night Lark duvet

Common problems with the coverless duvet

We have already mentioned several times in this article that you can choose between summer warmth and year-round warmth. While summer warmth is 100% suitable for summer, year-round warmth can potentially be insufficient for winter. The UK climate is mild and that is why we believe that 10.5 TOG is sufficient for most customers in the UK, especially for those who have central heating. However, if you live in colder areas or don't want to keep the heating on all day, you should consider a duvet that has a TOG of around 13. It's one of the few problems we've seen, and the solution is very simple.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

The quality of craftsmanship is what definitely makes Night Lark coverless duvet better than some other similar ones. As soon as you take it in hand and check all the parts, it will be clear to you that quality materials have been used, but also that the processing is at a high level. After that, we would single out what is hypoallergenic to eco-friendly.

Both features are of utmost importance although they are often overlooked when buying a duvet or some other sleep product. We like that it is available in two TOGs and that you can choose between 5 very beautiful colours – Dusk Pink, White Seersucker, Aurora Green, Twilight Blue and Cloud Grey.

How did we test the product?

An image of night owl duvet testing

Standard delivery is very fast so the coverless duvet arrived in a few days. We first checked for a defect before washing it. Then we conducted a maintenance test and prepared them for future testing.

Since we tested both 4.5 TOG and 10.5 TOG Night Lark coverless duvet review took a little longer than usual. We tested both models for several nights, and we changed the room temperature, as well as the ones tested, to see the impressions of different sleepers, allergy sufferers and so on. Our test team is very diverse.

Overall impressions after testing

Our main impression after testing the Night Lark coverless duvet is how comfortable it is. Part of the merit goes to the fact that it is coverless, so it won't happen to fall out of the cover or move and thus make you feel cold in one place.

But that is not all. It is really soft and lightweight. Even 10.5 TOG is lightweight so you won't feel stuck under it. That's why it's great for use during the day too while watching TV or reading a book. Not only that, a big bonus is it can be tucked away like a sleeping bag so it is a great idea for putting on your bed in the camper van or keeping you super cosy on a camping trip. Family life can become a lot simpler by taking this duffle bag of light weight bedding wherever you need to.

We are delighted with the ease of maintenance, all you need is a washing machine. In our opinion, many customers will find this to be the most important feature which will help them decide to buy exactly this model. For all aesthetes, there is a large selection of colours. Until now, we have not had the opportunity to test the duvet available in 6 different colours. Also, the colours are not ordinary, but very nicely selected.

Overall, the experience of using the Night Lark coverless duvet is very positive. It's hard to give a final score, but since we know it will help you decide, we give this product a 9. Sounds amazing? So, keep the Night Lark coverless duvet in mind when looking for a new duvet!
