Choose a remarkably light and airy 4.5 tog goose down duvet, suitable for use during the sunny season or year round in well heated bedrooms. Summer duvets are designed for excellent moisture regulation. These duvets feature 100% cotton fabric and utilise the box-stitch technique for effortless ventilation through the seams, regulating temperature and preventing overheating.
Available in all sizes, from single to super king, a summer duvet is the ideal lightweight companion for hot summer nights. All our duvets are premium products with natural filling of at least 90% down and are produced in workshops that exercise extensive quality control and maintain high standards of excellence.
The size of the ‘boxes’ which make up a down duvet is a good visual indicator of its relative warmth. The more filling within one of these quilted squares (down chambers), the more efficient the insulation it provides. Therefore summer duvets will have a greater number of boxes than a winter equivalent. The boxes will in turn be smaller. In most cases a 135 cm x 200 cm summer duvet will have 80 boxes arranged in an 8 x 10 grid.
Ventilation refers to the air permeability of a down duvet. Summer down duvets are sewn without baffles, allowing air to ventilate easily through the seams, thereby preventing overheating. It also regulates moisture, keeping the person underneath both cool and dry.
We use tog rating as an easy-to-understand measurement of insulation. A higher tog means that a duvet is suitable for colder environments. A tog rating of 4.5 indicates a light, summery down duvet. Further information can be found on our page about the tog system.
European Standard EN 12934 regulates the categorisation and naming of the filling material in bedding based on the proportion of new down and the types of poultry used. Only Class 1 down fillings may bear the quality rating “new”. All products on Downduvet.co.uk are filled with the best, Class 1 filling.
Experience shows that duvets with fabric of Ne 30 or higher are suitable for use by people with dust mite allergies. Premium down comforters have high-quality covers ranging from Ne 40 to Ne 155. On this website, you can see the Ne of each duvet under its product details. Additional protection is provided by duvets with the NOMITE label, which we recommend for allergy sufferers.
