MEET THE DUVETS

One of the most important advantages wool duvets offer over other fillings is the wool duvet can “breathe”. By this we mean that wool has a natural ability to absorb moisture (let’s be frank about it – sweat) away from your body. From there the moisture evaporates through the duvet leaving you warm but dry. This is called “wicking” and wool has a very high ability to wick moisture – it can absorb as much as 30% of its own weight . So no more waking up at night feeling overly hot and clammy. Feather, feather/down, synthetic and hollow fibre fillings have a much lower wicking ability. Feathers will repel sweat back onto you, as will synthetic fillings, so they are not the solution to night sweats and if fact can aggravate the problem.
