The new range of John Lewis duvets is a life saver for those of us seeking the light-as-a-feather cosiness of a duck down duvet but with full approval from The Vegan Society. Yes, John Lewis & Partners has launched its first vegan, biodegradable duvet. 

The Botanic Duvet (opens in new tab) is part of the Natural Collection and is made from Tencel Lyocell, a natural material derived from sustainable wood sources.

Naturally temperature regulating and breathable, sweaty nights will be a thing of the past, and the material is beautifully soft on skin.
