What is the best duvet you can buy? The Eve All Seasons duvet! It's versatile, breathable, high quality and temperature regulating to name a few good features.

Tog
This duvet comes in two parts: a 4.5 tog duvet and a 9 tog duvet – both of which can be popped together (literally!) to make a 13.5 tog duvet to keep you comfortably toasty. This also means that you technically own another duvet for unexpected extra sleeping heads. Win win.

Filling
Constructed from a blend of polyester and Tencel fill, this microfibre duvet ensures you feel the warmth without the weight. It also feels a lot like a cruelty-free version of a certain filling that rhymes with clown. Featuring a 100 per cent cotton percale outer cover to guarantee a cloud-like touch, it's also a great option for sleepers with allergies or sensitive skin.

Temperature regulating
The Eve All Seasons duvet guarantees air circulation for those who consider themselves a sweaty sleeper, all thanks to the Tencel fill inside which keeps your temperature under control and regulates humidity beneath the covers.

How to buy the best duvet

Duvet tog ratings
A duvet’s filling will determine how light or heavy it is, but its tog rating indicates how warm it will feel. The higher the tog rating, the warmer it will feel. 

Summer duvets fall between 1 and 4.5 togs; spring/autumn duvets between 7 and 10.5 togs; and winter duvets between 12 and 13.5 togs. No one (we know) would want to buy three duvets to cover all seasons, so it’s worth buying an all-season duvet: this comes in the form of two lighter-weight duvets (one spring, one summer), clipped together to make a higher tog (winter) duvet. 

The majority on our list are 10.5 tog, however, the Slumberdown All Seasons 3-in-1 15 Tog Combi Duvet features two different duvets: one at 4.5 tog, another at 10.5, which can be clipped together to make a 15 tog duvet or used separately in warmer weather.

Couples who prefer different levels of night-time warmth can be catered to with duvets with different tog ratings on either side. Or, you could sleep like the Dutch, and have two single duvets on the same double bed.

Duvet fillings
There are so many duvet fillings to choose from: synthetic, microfibre, feather, down, cotton, silk and wool, and each feels different to sleep beneath. Here's a rundown:

Natural duvet fillings feel luxurious to sleep beneath. Duvets with a high feather content feel warm, heavy and enveloping, but are breathable, so you won't feel sweaty. You can check the feather content levels (it's called ‘fill power’) on the label: the higher the fill power, the warmer it will be. Check, too, that the feather or down comes from a certified farm to ensure the duvet is of good quality. Allergy sufferers should also ensure these natural fillings have been treated and that the duvet cover is woven tightly to avoid dust mite allergens. Wool, silk or cotton fillings, feel soft and comfortable to sleep under, but like other natural fillings are more expensive than synthetic ones. 

Synthetic duvet fillings are usually more affordable than duvets with natural fillings. Made from hollowfibre or microfibre polyester, which are non-allergenic and feel lighter than feather or down, they're still warm to sleep beneath. The White Company's Deluxe Down Alternative Duvet is another synthetic option, and if you're looking for an eco-conscious duvet, we have one on our list that's made from 100 per cent PET plastic bottles. Don't judge until you try! Other things to love about synthetic duvets? They can be machine washed, which is another tick in the box for allergy sufferers.

Duvet size
You need to shop for a duvet with your mattress measurements to hand. Too small for the bed, and you'll feel the draughts; too large, and the duvet will feel uncomfortably heavy.

Machine washable?
Duvets should be laundered every few months. If you don't want to lug yours to a dry cleaners, look for one that's machine washable and tumble-dryer tolerant.
