Does a quilt have to be heavy?
A comforter insulates you from the cold outside by holding air, so the warmth of a comforter is related to the ability of the filling to store air and has little to do with the weight of the comforter.
Choosing the best filling for you
You are faced with only two choices: natural fillings or synthetic fillings
The 'breathing performance' of the quilt: A quilt that breathes well can help you suck up the moisture produced by your body and exhaust it out of the quilt, preserving it for a night's sleep, so it is a very important indicator.
Duvets are usually made from synthetic (micro-gel) or natural (such as bamboo, duck or goose down) fill. The challenge with synthetic duvets is that they are usually not as warm as duvets made from down materials, so to get the same level of warmth as down, you may need to use a relatively heavy duvet.
When it comes to natural fillings, bamboo is an excellent insulator and can effectively wick away moisture. So if you're a warm sleeper who wants to stay dry and cool, this is a good choice. Again, duck down happens to provide a lightweight and cool down fill power, which makes it a smart choice for warm sleepers.
On the other hand, goose down is larger and more insulating than duck down. This makes it a great choice for cooler sleepers who want a warmer down fill power.
Considering that, ideally, you spend a third of your day in bed, choose the right bedding A comfortable night's rest is essential to your health and well-being. Of course, you also want your bed to look beautiful. Fortunately, as bedspreads go, the duvet is there.
An important consideration in choosing a down comforter is how warm it will keep you at night. Here are the factors that determine the warmth of a duvet, from the filling material to the down filling power and type of duvet material.
