What is this product used for?
It is not hard to conclude that we use the Silentnight Winter Nights duvet to warm us up and to maintain such temperature during the long, cold, winter nights. However, that is not the only reason. This duvet is very comfortable thanks to fluffy DuPoint fibres, so it will improve your night’s sleep not only because you will not be cold, but also because it will hug you.

- We use it for hypo allergenic features
- We use it for cosy night’s sleep.
Features you must know about Winter Nights duvet by Silentnight
Now it is the right time to say a little more about the DuPoint fibers we mentioned in the previous paragraph, as well as about some other things you must know concerning the Silentnight Winter Nights duvet.
Now we come to the heart and soul of this duvet, which is generously filled with DuPoint fibres. These are innovative high performance fibres. DuPoint fibre is special type of hollowfibre, that is registered, because it has improved properties of regular hollowfibre material plus all the other already known features of hollowfibre.
DuPoint fibres are soft and comfortable, and also very warm. By making insulation between the cold outside environment, more precisely the cold air in the room and your body, you will never be cold during sleep again, even if you are cold sleepers. This duvet will keep you warm and insulated from the cold at the same time. In addition, bouncy fibers will be placed all around your body and thus give you maximum comfort.
230 thread count cotton-sateen cover
This lovely piece of silk bedding does not come encased in a silk duvet cover, which some might find strange. Instead, this one is encased in a luxurious 230 thread count cotton sateen cover.
Sateen cotton is known for being cool to the touch and letting the body heat pass through it, instead of retaining it, which will also add to the overall breathability of the product.
The cotton is also soft and gentle to the touch, and the overall quality of it is top-notch. However, since it is not removable, we would advise using an additional cover to tuck this silk duvet in.
Protection against dust mites and bacteria
Both hollowfibre and microfibre are 100% hypoallergenic materials, which means they are highly unlikely to provoke an allergic reaction. That is why all allergy sufferers can buy this duvet, but materials aren’t the only thing that makes it suitable. It has protection against dust mites and bacteria, and dust mites are known to be one of the most common allergens in our environment. Also, there is no need to talk further about the harmfulness of bacteria.
40 Celisus degrees washable
Hypoallergenic materials and protection against dust mites and bacteria, would not be enough to provide you with a clean and harmful sleeping environment if this duvet was not fully machine washable.
This duvet is fully machine washable at 40 degrees C. You can wash it as often as you want because it is durable and signs of wear and tear will not appear in the foreseeable future. After washing and drying it, make sure that the filling is evenly distributed on the duvet, if not, take the opposite corners and shake it.

How did we test the product?
When you order your Silentnight So Snug Winter duvet it will take 7 to 10 days before it reaches you.
Once it arrives, our recommendation is to wash it first, before you start using it. Before washing, first check all seams and the complete duvet, as it may sometimes be damaged during production or transport. You must report this immediately otherwise the 5-year warranty will not be valid and you won’t get full refund.
Wash it at 40 degrees Celsius using a mild detergent and then hang it to dry or tumble dry it on low heat.
We tested it in winter conditions, because there is no point in testing it when it is warmer. All members of our test team were very comfortable and warm. They think it would give them a great night’s sleep every night because they would never be cold and also it is not too warm or heavy. The hot sleeper from our test team thinks he could use the 13.5 TOG model during the coldest nights for comfortable temperature, while the 15 TOG is too warm in any situation.
