Advice on Choosing Best Summer Duvet

One of the most important factors required to have a good night's sleep, is achieving the perfect temperature in bed. Technically, this is known as the 'thermo-neutral' and is between 28-29° C (82-84° F), a bit below normal body temperature. In order to achieve this is the summer, one needs to sleep under the most appropriate tog for summer, generally a 4.5 TOG DUVET, whatever the duvet filling.

3 Tog Cotton duvets
The 3 tog cotton duvet are 100% cool cotton summer duvets, ideal for hot nights. Cotton is perfect for those who can’t tolerate an animal-based product, but who don’t want synthetic. These thin summer duvets offer high moisture absorbency, are hypoallergenic, machine-washable and the light fill weight makes them feel rather like a quilted blanket. The cotton fill will pack down slightly over time (unlike a filling such as wool or down, which remains fluffy throughout its lifetime) but you can fluff them up by tumbling drying them with a clean tennis ball (or do it the old-fashioned way by beating it with a mattress beater).

These supremely popular microfibre duvets are also hypoallergenic and completely unique in their ability to be washed in a domestic washing machine.

These duvets are even more luxurious than the standard goose down duvets as they are the lightest summer duvets available.

Unfortunately, this is reflected in the price as these certainly aren't cheap summer duvets!
