DUVET, PILLOW AND MATTRESS PROTECTORS BUYING GUIDE

The secret to a perfect night sleep is not all down to a good mattress. The right duvet and pillows are also key to a restful sleep.

At House of Fraser, you’ll find a range of duvets, pillows and mattress protectors available to buy online and in store. Follow this helpful buying guide to find out if white goose down duvets or hollow fibre pillows are the best choice for you. Pick bedding that is perfectly suited to your sleeping style.

Choose the right duvet

Before purchasing your duvet, there are two main points to consider - the duvet filling and the tog rating.

Tog ratings refer to a duvet's ability to trap warm air. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet.

Your choice of tog rating really depends upon your personal preferences and the temperature of your home. This tog rating chart will help you purchase the perfect duvet.

Lightweight summer duvet

Up to 4.5 tog

Spring to autumn weight duvet

5.0 - 9.5 tog

Winter weight duvet

10.0 - 13.5 tog

 

Which duvet filling?

There are two types of duvet fillings, natural and synthetic. Each of these has different qualities, so it really depends upon what is most important to you.

Natural*

Natural fillings duvets are soft, comfortable and lightweight. A natural duvet will absorb body moisture produced during your sleep and release it when you air the duvet. This makes it more breathable. With its ability to trap warm air, it’s also known to keep the warmth more effectively than a synthetic fillings duvet.

All House of Fraser natural duvets are filled with goose down or duck down and have 100% cotton cambric casing. This means they can last up to 10 years longer than synthetic filled duvets. However, these duvets require special care, as they tend not to be machine washable
