So the forecasters are predicting a ‘long hot summer’ with temperatures well above average through July and into August. Bring it on, we say!
The thing that’s always puzzled us, however, is that although we Brits are quick to change into our summer wardrobes as soon as the mercury hits 20 degrees (or more likely 15!), the majority of us don’t do the same with our bedding.
Warm weather can wreak havoc with our sleep patterns, making us feel stressed before we’ve even started our day. It can be hard to get to sleep in a heat wave, and when we lie above the duvet, we wake up shivering at 4am.
Just like with fashion, choosing bedding is all about the right piece for the occasion – and a choice of fillings and materials, coupled with the Tog rating system, it’s as easy as 1-2-3: the lower the Tog, the lighter the duvet.
Layering with a Four Seasons duvet is the ideal option: a light (4.5 Tog), coupled with a medium 9.5 Tog, meaning you can use them separately for the best of both worlds in summer, spring and autumn – but you can also clip them together for a super-toasty 13.5 Tog for even the chilliest winter’s night.
And just as we reach for lighter linen and cotton clothing for summer days, we should also look to cooler, breathable fillings for our summer nights. Keeping cool is all about wicking away moisture and allowing our skin to breathe as we sleep. Goose and duck feather and down duvets are lightweight, but mould to our bodies and regulate our temperature by offering enhanced breathability.
If you suffer from allergies, you’ll know they’re often exacerbated in the summer, so opt for a good quality, lightweight synthetic filling, such as our Anti-Allergy 4.5 Tog. Our synthetic fillings, such as Smartfil®, give you that luxury down-like feeling, but can also be machine-washed at home.
And that all-important cool side of the pillow? We thought of that too. Our Cool Touch® Pillow works like our best duvets, wicking heat and moisture away from your head and neck. You’ll sleep so soundly you won’t need to spend the night pillow-flipping!
Our innovative duvets and fillings are manufactured to precise densities, weights and Tog ratings, to create a wide range of weights, breathability and warmth.
When you’re choosing your summer bedding, take climate, bedroom temperature and personal taste into account to create your perfect made-to-measure sleep solution. Why settle for off-the-peg?
