University students, big and little kids, singletons and grandparents - let's hear it for the single! You get loads more room than if you were sharing a double. That means more gorgeous, downy, duvety goodness to cuddle up in.
If you're replacing an old single duvet don't worry - all your standard bed linen should still fit. That's because we use UK sizing (135 x 200cm or 4’5”). Of course, some beautiful new silk sheets would be a nice addition, don't you think?
Our expert says: "Single duvets are made to fit a mattress size of 90cm x 190cm (3ft x 6ft 3") - the extra width falls down the sides of the bed. You could size up to a double although that gets pretty wide. Don't forget to buy a double duvet cover if you do this!
Our single duvets come in every sort, from top-class Supreme Canadian to money-saving Duck Feather and Down; and there are lots of non-feathery options, too! If you have allergies then you can choose from microfibre, silk, or wool. The natural options have been chosen because they offer special advantages over microfibre. For example, wool is renowned for its temperature-regulating properties - that's great if you get hot and bothered in bed. Silk is highly breathable and light, so it's perfect for summer conditions or damp nights."
Handy tips: Confusingly enough, a single bed is sometimes called a "twin bed" overseas. In the UK, "twin bed" is used to describe two beds in the same room and doesn't necessarily refer to the size of the beds. It's always sensible to measure up before you buy.
