Our SummerPlus duvets are light and airy, an excellent option if you crave something a little warmer than the lightest summer duvet. It is more versatile yet still provides exceptional moisture regulation. As the name suggests, the SummerPlus can be used for a more extensive period of time. It is perfect for year-round use in a heated bedroom and for those who tend to run cold and need a slightly more insulating duvet. We also recommend alternating between a light, SummerPlus duvet and a warmer one depending on the season.
Available in all sizes from single to super king, the SummerPlus duvet is a reliable comforter for blissful, rejuvenating sleep. All our duvets are premium products with a natural filling composed of at least 90% down and are produced in workshops which 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 SummerPlus duvets will have a greater number of boxes than a winter duvet and fewer than a regular summer one. In most cases a 135 cm x 200 cm SummerPlus duvet will have 48 boxes aligned in an 6 x 8 grid.
Ventilation refers to the air permeability of a down duvet. SummerPlus duvets are sewn without baffles or with very small baffles. This allows air to ventilate easily through the seams, thereby preventing overheating and enabling air circulation.
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 6.0 indicates a light, summery-but-snug 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 down fillings of Class 1 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 ticking 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.
