There are lots of things that I like about this duvet, the main thing being that it is lovely and snuggly! It is thirteen and a half tog which makes it thick enough to be snuggly but not so thick that you get too hot under it. My husband works nights and so we have issues with duvet size because when he is at work I get cold, but when he’s home I am too hot. Somehow this duvet manages to regulate that and it is suitable for both occasions. It is designed to be used all year round, which is probably why it works so effectively.
It is a decent size. I have had cheaper ones in the past that, whilst they say they are double bed sized, they seem not to be able to fill a double duvet cover and they leave those thin annoying excess bits of duvet cover at the edges. I am pleased to say that this isn’t a problem with this one. It fills the cover right to the end and as a result, it is really easy to get into the cover, which is an added bonus. I say this because this is a job I hate and it seems to be somehow less painful with this duvet.
The duvet is supposed to be a bounce back one that goes back into shape even when you squeeze it and lie on it, thanks to the hollowfibre filling. I am usually wary of these kinds of claims, but it seems to be justified in this case. The duvet has maintained its shape even after a few years of ebing on our bed. I am genuinely impressed with it.
It is easy to clean as well because it is both machine washable and you can put it in a tumble dryer. We can’t fit it in our own home machine, but we have taken it to the laundrette a few times and it washes and dries well actually.
There is nothing really that I don't like about this duvet and I would definitely recommend it, especially for the very reasonable price tag of £20.
Every year I seem to buy myself a new duvet. I like to freshen up so I get shopping for what is deemed to be a bargain afterall I don't want to be spending extortionate amounts on something I don't ever keep for that long however I still of course want quality and warmth from a duvet.
I never go below a 13.5 tog, even in the summer. I seem to always be cold suffering from a thyroid condition and M.E and realistically looking back on this duvet I should have bought myself a 15 tog as I could be warmer however from this brand their togs don't go any higher than the 13.5g.
I have owned this one a few months now however I am only using this for a couple more weeks due to the fact it is going as I am getting a new Kingsize divan bed and therefore need all new bedding again however I have to admit I wouldn't be getting rid of this one at the moment as I really like it and it certainly has a lot of life in it still!
I bought this from Kays (www.kays.com) and it comes in sizes single, double and kingsize and in 4.5 tog, 10.5 tog and 13.5 and they go from prices £8.00 for a single 4.5g tog up to £23.00 for a kingsize with a 13.5g tog so you can see that these are a rather cheap option for duvets and I paid just £20.00 for my double 13.5 tog!
It comes rolled up within a white and lilac, easy to tear off plastic wrapper and on it we are simply told what it is and who it is by and that it is non- allergenic and machine washable and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Its simple packaging this and easy to dispose of as there isn't too much of it.
When I got this out the wrapping I was surprised as it seemed rather flat however you need to give it room to 'breathe' and being called 'Ultra Bounce' it does thicken back out. The cover is white and made of polyproylene and like a paper but its soft enough, strong and within it it is filled with a white spiral blended fibre and like I have already mentioned this is machine washable and I have washed and dried this once since owning it at the launderette as it would never fit in my washing machine or tumble drier and this gave me no issues at all or impaired its quality.
My double size is a true double size, it isn't as bouncy as I expected to be but it does keep me warm. It is an economy buy this one and I can't describe it as luxurious as such but its suited me well and I would buy another one in the future!
Google if interested and it is of course available from Kays.
