Your Feather Duvets Shopping Guide For The Perfect Night’s Sleep

Having a good night’s sleep is extremely important. Too many individuals sleep on poor quality mattresses and with a duvet which is too thin and uncomfortable. Not only does this stop your ability to enjoy an undisturbed night’s sleep, but it can also have a detrimental impact on your health. Therefore, you need to give a lot of thought and consideration to the duvet you buy in order to ensure that you are kept warm, comfortable and healthy.


It is highly recommended that you purchase feather duvets over the synthetic versions. For some people they have no choice because they are allergic to feathers. Nevertheless, if this does not apply to you, then a natural duvet is very much recommended. This is because they create a much more comfortable and soft sleep. The natural duvets mould to the shape of your body and thus they provide you with the full cosy effect.

When deciding which feather duvet to buy, you will first have to decide whether to go for a duck feather and down duvet or a goose feather and down duvet. The main difference between the two options is that the duck feather and down duvet is a lot heavier. This does not mean that one duvet is warmer than the other, as you will find out later in the article there is a different factor which signals this. The option you choose simply relates to the level of comfort you desire. It is like when you purchase a mattress some people prefer harder mattresses and others prefer soft. This is dependent on your own personal taste.

Now, how do you determine which duvet is going to give you the most warmth? The warmth of a duvet is determined via the ‘tog’ of it. In general, feather duvets tend to be a lot warmer and thus people who switch from a synthetic duvet to a feather duvet usually find they can opt for a lower tog. The general perception of the tog levels is as follows: 3.0 to 4.5 tog is a very lightweight duvet which is suited to summer weather, 7.0 to 10.5 tog is associated as being a duvet for spring/autumn, and then anything between 12 and 13.5 tog provides a great level of warmth and thus can keep you warm during the cold winter months.

You will need to ensure that you buy the right size duvet for your bed. This is an obvious point, yet you would not believe how many people add a duvet to their shopping cart without checking what size it is. In addition to this, you also need to consider the price of the duvet you buy. This will be dependent on the size and the tog number of the duvet – the bigger the size, the bigger the tog, the more expensive the duvet will be. Nevertheless, if you buy off the internet then you will be able to find some great deals.

If you want to benefit from the perfect night’s sleep then buying a feather duvet can definitely provide that. Make sure you give consideration to the tog number of the duvet before you buy.
