Customer Reviews

What is a single duvet?

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 sleep 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!

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.

What is the best type of duvet to buy?

Our single duvets come in a wide range of fills. Here’s some detail about the different type of fills so you can choose the best for your needs. 

Feather & Down fill duvets are made with either duck feather & down or goose feather & down. This fill is plump, soft and wonderfully insulative while still being breathable for all-night comfort.

Natural fill duvets such as wool, linen, cotton or silk are less plump than other duvet types and filled with a carded layer of fibre. They’re especially effective at helping you stay at the right temperature all night, no matter what the weather.

Synthetic fill duvets are filled with microfibre or polyester. They tend to be more budget-friendly than other duvets and easier to care for, but aren’t as breathable which may leave you waking up in the night feeling hot and sticky.

Single Bed Duvets FAQs

What size duvet is best for a single bed?

The best size duvet for a single bed is a single duvet. A single duvet is perfectly proportioned to fit the dimensions of a single bed - UK single duvets measure in at 135 x 200cm. This means there's plenty of duvet to cover the mattress with the extra width falling down the side of the bed. This is the case with all single duvets - whether a single down duvet or a feather duvet single.

You could size up to a double duvet for an extra snug bed - especially if you move around a lot in your sleep. Remember to buy a double duvet cover if you do this!

Are feather duvets warmer than synthetic?

When thinking about how warm a duvet is, the tog rating is the thing you need to consider. A higher tog duvet will be warmer than a lower tog duvet. 

Feather & Down fill duvets are made with either duck feather and down or goose feather and down. This fill is plump, soft and insulative while still being breathable for all-night comfort.

Synthetic fill duvets are filled with microfibre or polyester. They are also very plump and soft - some are very convincing alternatives to feather and down. However, they aren’t as breathable which may leave you waking up in the night feeling hot and sticky. 

Is it OK to put a double duvet on a single bed?

UK single bed mattresses measure 90cm x 190cm, and a double duvet measures 200cm x 200cm. This means if you use a double duvet on a single bed, you will either have a lot of duvet hanging over the side of the bed or you will need to fold your duvet over to keep it looking neat.
However, if you are buying a duvet for someone who moves around a lot in their sleep or who likes to wrap themselves up completely, a double duvet could be perfect. Remember to use a double duvet cover with a double duvet - you cannot put a double duvet inside a single duvet cover as the duvet.

Is a 15 tog duvet warm enough for winter?

The right tog for winter depends on several things - where you live and how cold it gets, how warm your home is and how cold you feel at night. Some people will find a 15 tog duvet far too warm, while for others it's just right.
A 15 tog duvet is perfect for winter if you live somewhere that gets very cold, if your house is very chilly or if you feel the cold easily. 13.5 tog is a more typical 'winter' tog duvet and can be made cosier with throws and blankets providing additional warmth.
