If the weather smiles kindly upon us, we can expect sunny days and balmy evenings. It's all very well to feel toasty in bed in the colder months, but in summer we yearn for a cool, comfortable night's sleep, so it's out with the heavyweight winter duvets and in with lighter bedding options.
Switching to a summerweight duvet with a natural filling allows skin to breathe, and feels super soft. Lightweight 4.5 tog is as warm as a blanket with the comfort and security of a plump, full duvet. An all-seasons combination duvet is a worthwhile investment, as the two components - typically 4.5 tog and 9 tog - can be used separately in summer and spring/autumn respectively, or poppered together for cold nights. It definitely works out cheaper than buying separate duvets too.
A lightweight wool duvet by Devon Duvets is an eco-friendly option to keep you fresh and cool, as it's breathable and machine washable too. Find out more. Or for the ulimate in feather-light bedding, our luxurious silk-filled duvets, pillows and mattress covers are breathable and hypo-allergenic. Find out more.
There's also a clever innovation for those who fight over the duvet because one partner overheats while the other feels chilly: the marvellous TwoTog duvet, made in our own Lancashire factory, is a customised solution which divides the duvet's tog down the middle, allowing you to feel warm or cool, side by side.

A natural-filled pillow shares all the benefits of feather and down-filled duvets, and will remain pristine throughout a warm spell with the aid of a pillow protector to guard against a sweaty scalp. Equally, an all-cotton mattress cover, quilted for extra comfort, will help preserve the condition of your mattress through the summer months.
Pick natural, cooling cotton for breathable sheets, pillowcases andduvet covers. Consider the thread count too - the higher the thread count, the finer the fabric, and the more resistant it is to creasing. Our highest quality cotton is Genuisa - a luxurious 1000 thread count with a beautiful lustre and a silk-like feel.
