What kind of duvet to choose for the upcoming warm spring-summer season? First of all, one under which it will be pleasant, airy and cool. A good and undisturbed sleep allows the body to regenerate. Often in summer, temperatures at night are high disturbing our rest and making it difficult to fall asleep.
Our body temperature is a key factor in getting a good night’s sleep. In order for our body to get ready for sleep we need several physiological changes to occur. Our core body temperature needs to drop by 1-2 degrees Celsius, we need our breathing to slow down and for our muscles to relax. If our body temperature is too high, it signals that we need to stay alert and awake. A drop in body temperature activates thermosensitive cells in the brain. They send a signal to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (that's kind of our 24-hour biological clock) for evening melatonin production and with it sleep. Thus, melatonin levels depend not only on the decrease in light in the evening but also on the decrease in temperature - these two factors are crucial to the process of falling asleep.
A summer duvet will help regulate our body temperature and keep us cozy without feeling overheated.
The secret lies in the properties and structure of down - a single ball of down has an irregular, three-dimensional structure, resembling a snowflake. It is the free spaces between the curves of the down fibers that collect air, creating a natural barrier against cold and heat, providing thermoregulation and air circulation. The properties of down mean that bedding filled with it warms us in winter and insulates us from heat in summer.
Wrapped in pure cotton, with luxurious 100% natural down filling, it keeps you snug without overheating you. We designed these duvets with the right weight of down filling for high temperatures.
Duvets sewn by hand according to labor-intensive, pre-war techniques are a purchase for years to come. There will be no need to replace our duvets or cushions with new ones after a few years. We offer our regular customers a down duvet restoration service.
