What’s a Summer Duvet and Why Do I Need One?

by Lucas Mills 29 Nov 2022 0 Comments

Things are heating up for summer and as the temperature grows so does the discomfort of sleeping as nights begin to grow warm, sticky and uncomfortable. At one time or another we’ve all been guilty of making do with inadequate bedding throughout opposing seasons, whether you just keep adding blankets in winter or lose the duvet completely and rely on a single clingy sheet. It can be tricky to identify a suitable duvet for different times of year, however, at Eiderdown we do things a little differently. We have a duvet buying guide to help you find the best product for you.

How to Find the Perfect Summer Duvet

The saying ‘less is more’ doesn’t necessarily ring true when it comes to duvets. The thinnest duvet isn’t necessarily the coolest, there are many more factors in play than that. Mattresses come in various sizes, with various fillings, materials and weights. Here are some of the summer proof features you’ll want to look out for:


Duvets act to retain a pocket of warm air around you as you sleep. You require some breathability in all duvets to prevent overheating and sweating. In summer, having a more breathable duvet will help keep you cool enough during sleep. 


Lightweight duvets are preferable in summer as sleepers move around more and adjust the duvet throughout the night. Our summer duvets are thinner and lightweight than our others which means a better night’s sleep for you.


All our summer duvet range come with Sanitized® 100% cotton sateen with a high thread count for ultimate high-quality bedding. This is the perfect fabric to maintain happy and healthy skin.


Despite all the research and design that goes into our products, on the hottest nights we are all likely to perspire somewhat. Fortunately, our summer duvets have the tools to deal with it. With moisture-wicking fabric helping to move moisture away from you, you can continue to enjoy peaceful sleeps day after day with Eiderdown.
