The path to the perfect duvet
The following points should help you in selecting the right duvet for you. Before you buy, consider what is important for you. Your specialist retailer will be pleased to advise you.
Sizes: Choose a size that is widely available in Switzerland so you can be sure of finding bed linen to fit.
Down duvet systems: Various types of duvet are available, depending whether you prefer a warmer or cooler bedroom at night and also whether you like to change your duvet according to the seasons.
Summer duvets are down duvets sewn fabric-on-fabric and containing less filling. They are therefore particularly suitable for the summer months or, depending upon the quality and quantity of the filling, as an all year duvet.
Down duvets with tunnels or box baffles: These duvets contain more filling and have correspondingly higher insulating properties. They are suitable as all year duvets or winter duvets.
Four seasons double down duvets: These are composed of two separate duvets, each of which has a different fill quantity. The lighter duvet is for the summer months, the heavier duvet is for spring and autumn and in winter the two can be fastened together.
Once you have decided which duvet system is best for you, you can customise it to suit your needs. By choosing the fill weight and the down quality you can determine the insulating properties for yourself and select the perfect warmth for you.
