What’s the best kind of duvet for two people to share this winter

Cold toes in the night or getting hot and bothered under the covers? Many of us find that our partner has a different body temperature from ours whilst sleeping and that can make for an uncomfortable and restless night’s sleep. No one wants the shock of being woken up by someone else’s icy toes on your side of the bed, however much you love your other half…and it’s equally disruptive to a good night’s sleep if your partner gets hot and keeps throwing off the covers, leaving you out in the cold! So how do you find the best duvet for both of you this winter?

The answer is our certified 100% British wool duvets, individually handcrafted in Devon and encased in gorgeously soft 260 thread count cotton. Surprisingly, wool is not only cloud-like in its comfort but, as it is naturally breathable, it is also a fantastic temperature regulator and so will work with your body temperature to help you get a more restful sleep. It doesn’t matter if you are hot and your partner is cold (or vice versa!), your side of the duvet will adjust to your specific body temperature.

British wool is sustainable and responsible, shorn from live sheep – and only in Spring and Summer when the sheep need to be shorn. When we first started Devon Duvets, we used wool from our own flock of sheep to handcraft our duvets, so now that we are making thousands of duvets every year, we take special care in selecting wool that comes from British farmers whom we know have the same values as us towards responsible wool production. Because of our commitment to British wool and the way we manufacture, we are the first bedding company in the UK to receive accreditation from British Wool. Only companies who can prove that they only use British wool are given this accreditation. So, when we say that your duvet has been individually handcrafted using British wool, that is exactly what you are getting.

Our wool is processed in British mills, without bleaching or chemical treatments, to help the environment and to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible. The needled wool is made into large fluffy sheets that are encased in cotton, with minimal stitch lines, by our fantastic seamstresses at our Devon workshop. The result of this is that our duvets have a lovely light drape that wrap luxuriously around your body.

In addition to being temperature regulating, wool has other terrific properties that make it ideal in a duvet. For example, wool resists dust mites and so if you or your partner suffers from allergies or asthma, our wool duvets can help alleviate some of the symptoms. Our duvets are also very easy to care for; regular airing will keep your duvet nice and fresh but if you want a deeper clean then they can be machine washed on a wool setting, spinning out any excess water before being air dried.

We offer lightweight and medium weight wool duvets and, depending on a few factors,  you’ll need to check out which is the best option for you. We also offer a ‘combination’ duvet set, consisting of one lightweight duvet and one medium weight duvet, which when tied together using our secure ties, provides up to a mega 20 tog equivalent!  Our wool duvets are available in a wide range of sizes, from Single to Emperor and we can make bespoke sizes should you require anything more specific to your bed.

We have been committed to handcrafting only the very best quality certified 100% British wool duvets for 10 years and we not only have thousands of happy customers but have also won awards from various publications, including The Independent, Evening Standard and House Beautiful.
