This luxurious, natural wild silk filled duvet has a fine, organic cotton batiste cover. Silk is often the material of choice for people who suffer from sensitivities and allergies. It is even said to have healing qualities.
The silk used in this duvet is wild silk which means it is harvested after the silk worm/moth has left the cocoon. The texture is more irregular than conventional fine silk making this an excellent filling material. The duvet feels light and soft.
Silk is very temperature and moisture balancing and particularly effective at cooling when temperatures are high – which is why silk worms protect themselves from the humid, tropical climate of Asia by wrapping themselves in silk threads. It is recommended for people who are very sensitive to their environment.
The duvet features a ‘mummy-style’ quilting pattern (wider at the top and narrowing at the feet) which gives the duvet more drape so it can better ‘envelop’ the sleeper and keep out draughts. These duvets are also equipped with cotton ties on the corners which allow them to be combined with other duvets for extra weight and warmth.
NB: The quilting design may vary.
Approx. 2-4 togs. (A heavier weight, silk filled duvet is also available – use the ties on this duvet to create a double layer duvet for cold winter nights)
