From Scalff we tell you everything you need to take into account to choose the right duvet according to your needs.
To consider the most suitable duvet for you and your partner, be clear about what you are looking for in a duvet and the external aspects that can influence your rest. Are you looking for a winter duvet that is very warm or for the whole year? Do you usually get hot in bed? What temperature do you have in your room? Do you like the duvet to be heavy or light? Do you sleep with blankets? All these questions will help you identify how you want your natural duvet to be.
The filling materials eco-friendly duvet
Although the material may seem basic, many times we first look at other characteristics such as price, texture or size. One of the most important factors to choose a good duvet is its interior, it begins with knowing the fibers of the filling.
Quilts made of natural fibers have a high absorption capacity, are breathable and adapt to changes in temperature, providing perfect body regulation so as not to sweat or feel cold at night. Keep in mind that these three natural fibers.
Merino wool is the most widely used natural fiber of animal origin in quality duvets. It is a certified wool produced in a sustainable way and with a low environmental impact. It is a good thermal insulator and is certainly the right padding if you are thinking about the winter season.
Hemp fiber is increasingly used in textile products. It is a sustainable fiber as it significantly reduces pollution as it is a biodegradable and recyclable material. It has properties such as resistance, softness and is very durable. This fiber is ideal for spring-autumn quilts.
Another natural filling fiber is Lyocell , which comes from wood pulp. It is characterised by its great resistance, absorption and softness to the touch. It does not require chemical products for production. This material can be found in ecological duvets for between seasons.
The organic cotton cover
In second position we highlight the duvet cover, this is another great forgotten, but vital to determine the quality of a duvet. In addition to its aesthetic part and the finish, it is the covering layer that keeps the natural fiber filling.
The best material you can find in a cover is organic cotton, this allows the comforter to breathe properly and does not retain moisture. Your skin will thank you!
Another aspect that we must take into account when choosing the duvet is the grammage that indicates the heat capacity. The higher the grammage value, the more warmth it provides and also the thicker it will be.
In this way we can look at this value to know the season of the year that it is recommended to use it. For colder seasons it is advisable to choose a grammage between 150-350 g/m² and for the warmer months 100-150g/m².
For winter, the Pixie eco-friendly duvel model with 350 grs/m² is the best option with a 100% merino wool filling that provides an extra sensation of comfort and fluffiness.
