From warm nights in summer, to chilly evenings in the depths of winter, Soak&Sleep has an array of duvet togs and filling that has been developed to let you sleep perfectly comfortably all night long. As you change from boots to flip flops in summer, read on to get tips on the best way to develop your bedding to make the most of your year. 

Which duvet is best for Spring and Autumn?

Living in England has its positives and negatives, and its ever-changing weather is a reason to pack both sunglasses and an umbrella during Spring and Autumn. But what to use when you’re sleeping during this season is another question. We’d recommend a mid-tog for when the weather is warming up (but neither hot nor cold). A 7.5, 9 & 10.5 tog is a great selection for this time of year, but if you’re finding some nights colder than others, have a blanket on the end of the bed to layer up, or choose an all-seasons option which includes a 4.5 tog to attach.

Which duvet is best for Summer?

Are you tossing and turning on those warm summer nights? Being too hot during the night is a common disturbance, but it can be a thing of the past if you dress your bed correctly for the summer months. Choosing a high-summer tog ranging between 2-4.5 tog will mean that the duvet will be lighter. But also keep your eye out for natural fillings such as silk, cotton or a high down content for a fresher, cooler nights sleep. Wondering what bedding to dress your summer wardrobe in? Read here.

Which duvet is best for winter?

Higher togs duvets are best for colder nights, but also colder houses and those who have difficulty getting warm. Look out for 13.5 or 15 togs for excellent insulation. Fillings like feather and down are brilliant at responding to your body’s temperature and keeping it toasty.

What is an all-seasons duvet?

An all-seasons duvet option is when you have two separate duvets that can be combined. Each duvet has a different tog rating, and once connected creates a higher tog. The most common option is a 4.5 (for summer), and a 9 tog (for spring and autumn), which when connected together creates a 13.5 which is perfect for winter months.

Cost effective

Retailers usually offer a discount when you purchase an all-seasons duvet, meaning you'll get two duvets at a fraction of the price.

An extra duvet for guests

Expecting a guest? No problem, you’ll have a spare duvet with an all-seasons option. Want to spoil them? Pop a stack of Egyptian cotton towels on their bed.

Space saver

By having year-round comfort with two duvets, it saves on space for a duvet per season. If you’re not using one, shake them out and store them in a breathable cotton bag

 

 

So now you’ve got that bit closer to choosing the right duvet for each season, why not find the perfect bed linen for year round comfort.
