That’s why you should take care when purchasing these bedding items but how do you know which are the best options? Just for you, here is our short go-to guide to help you make the right choice when investing in quilts and pillows for your home. Know your quilt fillings There are many different types of filling for quilts and you need to know the difference between them in order to make a good selection. · Down Down quilts are warm and soft, with some describing them as the epitome of comfort and luxury. This type of quilt retains body heat creating a perfect sleeping environment that, in turn, results in a sound night’s sleep. Down contains naturally occurring air pockets that promote warmth and comfort so their popularity is no surprise. · Wool A wool quilt in Australia is a natural, hypoallergenic choice of duvet that is also highly durable as well as eco-friendly.
Wool quilts also have an ability to draw in moisture from the skin leaving you much more comfortable while also helping to regulate your body temperature. Aussie wool quilts are a great investment in your quality of sleep for lots of reasons. · Microfibre A microfibre quilt is a synthetic type of quilt that is beautifully soft and it’s a very cost- effective option considering the benefits that come with sleeping in one. They are very easy to maintain making them a convenient option for many homeowners. · Hollowfibre Hollowfibre quilts are a very reasonably priced choice of synthetic duvet and they are perfect for those on a budget. Hollowfibre quilts are also very durable and are easily laundered at home. Know your tog ratings When you go shopping for duvets, you will soon notice that each one has a tog rating. If you don’t understand what these mean, you could be compromising on your comfort. Without getting into too much detail, the tog rating of a duvet tells you how warm it is. For colder nights or if you live in a cold climate, you should choose a duvet with a higher tog rating i.e. greater than a 12 tog. For warmer times of year, a duvet with a lower tog of about 4.5 will suffice. If a packaging doesn’t show a tog value, you might notice a duvet weight instead. For example, a heavier duvet would have a weight of about 750gsm and a lighter one would have a weight of 250gsm.
