Duvet Buying Guide

You spend an average of a third of your lifetime sleeping, so choosing the best bedding for your body, health, comfort and sleeping habits is so important. Using our expertise, experience and extensive research, we have collated a guide to help you choose the best bedding for you.

We offer a range of duvets from Devon Duvets, Luna Textiles and Muhldorfer. We also offer our own collection under the Peter Betteridge Bedding range. These duvets are made for us in Ireland, using ethically sourced feather and down and microfibre.

When selecting your ideal duvet, there are a few factors to consider to ensure you are selecting the right option for a quality night’s sleep.


Are you pulling the duvet off during the night in attempt to cool down or do you find yourself layering up before bed just to keep warm? Whether you are a warm or cold sleeper, we have a duvet for you.

  • Warm sleeper: light weight duvet (approx. 4.5 tog)
  • Cooler sleeper: winter weight duvet (around 13.5 tog)
  • Normal/mid sleeper: all-season duvet (approx. 10.5 tog)


Just like your pillow filling, deciding on the material that makes up your duvet is important to ensuring you have a comfortable night sleep. Here is a reminder of your filling options and their qualities:

  • Wool: natural, breathable, often machine washable and hypo-allergenic, and perfect for those liking some weight in their duvet
  • Microfibre: great value, washable, lightweight and hypo-allergenic. With the cluster balls being individual, this filling is able to breathe well.
  • Down: natural, very lightweight, soft and traditional. The down filling is also a great breathable option
  • Feather: natural, good value, traditional and weighty

Other points to consider:

  • The higher the tog, the warmer the duvet will be (there are exceptions to a few filling options which react to the environment they are in)
  • When choosing a duvet as a couple, consider how you both sleep and find an option that will suit both your sleeping requirements
  • Consider other layers you have when sleeping; whether you use a flat sheet, leave a throw on the bed and other factors that may impact your sleeping temperature
