A Quilt is one of the biggest investments you will make for you and your bed.
Just like the pillow, it can sometimes be one of the hardest to get right!
You may be a hot or cold sleeper, or may prefer the luxuriously soft, light and fluffy feel of a Goose Down Quilt, or the soft and cosy feel of a Wool or Alpaca Quilt, for colder months/sleepers. Perhaps a light-weight cotton for comfort and softness is what you are after for warm months/sleepers.
Alternatively – for those suffering with allergies – a Microfibre quilt or a Polyester quilt may be your preferred choice.
Useful Tips When Choosing
It is always wise to consider when choosing your Quilt – how you want it to feel on you (light or weighted), room temperature and bed, months of the year, your sleeping temperature, washing preferences, price point, manufacturing (Australian vs import, warranty, fabric, finish and construction).
INSIDER TIP: If you’ve ever had the disagreement of finding a quilt that suits two different individuals’ warmth needs, wool has the natural ability of creating a microclimate which helps to regulate body temperature and reduce hot spots to assist in a well-ventilated bed.
Natural fillings such as wool, alpaca, cotton, duck and goose down, are known for their natural softness, loft and breathability and have great thermal and insulation properties. The fibres allow your skin to breathe and transport body moisture away from your body, keeping you comfortable over a wide range of conditions. Natural fibre quilts are highly resilient and will last for years if cared for properly.
FEATHER & DOWN
Goose down & feather quilts have warmth without weight. Fibres are durable and able to breathe, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. The higher the percentage of down content to feather, the lighter and warmer the product will be. The softness of down allows the quilt to snuggle around you.
