  1. Importance of Sleep Health and the Celebration of World Sleep Day

    Every year, World Sleep Day is observed to raise awareness about the importance of sleep and the various sleep problems faced by millions of people worldwide. Organised by the World Sleep Society, this annual event highlights the vital role sleep plays in our overall well-being. At Devon Duvets, we feel it is vital to support this annual event and our blog aims to provide more information about the history, goals, and activities of World Sleep Day and the importance of promoting sleep health.

  2. Why Am I Overheating in Bed?

Overheating can be very disruptive to sleep quality as it will often lead to waking up more during the night. Based on feedback when talking to customers, we’ve listed below the most common causes of overheating at night.

  3. Can meditation help you to sleep better?

    If you are experiencing trouble falling asleep, you’re not the only one!  Over 35% of adults around the world regularly experience this and, for many, sleeping difficulty is related to stress or anxiety. In today’s very full-on life, sometimes it just isn’t easy to switch off!

  5. Devon Duvets and Michelle's Sleep Story

    Michelle contacted us because she has a memory foam mattress but is finding that this makes her very hot during the warmer months and this is disrupting her sleep. Memory foam is synthetic so can trap heat around your body, and this is what is making Michelle feel hot. She was thinking of saving up for a new mattress, made with natural fibres, but then she read about the temperature regulating properties of wool toppers.

  6. Do wool duvets have a tog rating?

    Did you know that wool duvet tog ratings work differently from other types of duvets?  That means you might have to re-think what 'weight' of wool duvet you need for a great night's sleep. Read our guide to find out more about wool tog ratings and which might work best for you.

  7. Tips for tackling teen sleep issues

    Night sweats can be a delibitating issue, causing disrupted sleep and leading to fatigue the following morning. They can be caused by various factors and in our blog we outline some causes and give tips on how to achieve a more restful night.

  9. What makes a wool pillow so special?

    Pillows can be a very personal issue, with many people trying many types before finding the one that’s perfect for them. There are lots of options out there, with a choice of fillings, including feather, feather and down and synthetic or hollowfibre. However, as far as we are concerned wool is the cream of the ‘flock’ and this is why we only make wool filled pillows.

  10. How better sleep can help build better bones

    Sleep is important for new bone formation and research has shown that there is an association between a reduction in sleep and lower bone density, particularly in middle-aged and older women. This is especially the case in those who are post menopausal, where the drop in hormones levels, including the 'sleep hormone' melatonin, can lead to osteoperosis. Read our blog to find out more.
