Which Quilt or Duvet is best for winter?
The best winter quilt (also known as a winter doona or winter duvet) will come down to your personal warmth and comfort preferences. Whether you're looking for the warmest quilt available, dream of sleeping in a light and fluffy cloud, require a breathable and hypoallergenic option, or are prone to overheating, our collection of winter and trans-seasonal quilts will have something for you. But how to choose?
First thing's first: What is a TOG warmth rating?
All our natural-fill quilts come with a ‘TOG warmth rating’ to make choosing easy. A ‘TOG’ is an international standard used for measuring the warmth of a quilt. It’s the measure in units of the quilt’s thermal resistance – so the higher the TOG rating, the warmer the quilt.

Option 1: Wool Quilts
The ultimate renewable resource, wool is a natural fibre and insulator. Being breathable and absorbent, our wool quilts regulate your body temperate and allow for even warmth, resulting in a comfortable sleeping environment. They sit flatter and have more drape than our lighter quilt varieties, making them perfect for the cooler months and cold sleepers.

Option 2: Down and Feather Quilts
Goose Down Quilts and Duck Down Quilts are a luxurious option for staying warm while enjoying the light and fluffy feel of a high-loft duvet. Super soft and cosy, our goose down quilts are filled with a mixture of goose feather and goose down, resulting in beautiful warmth and a cocooning, lightweight feel.
For cold sleepers or those wanting to snuggle up through winter, a goose down and feather quilt can absorb body heat and help you retain a comfortable body temperature overnight. They also come in a variety of down to feather ratios and weights, allowing you to find the perfect quilt for your temperature and comfort preferences.
The higher the percentage of down, the lighter the quilt. All options (except the Hungarian Goose Down Quilt) come with a combination tie system so that two quilts of varying TOG ratings can be tied together to create more loft and warmth when required.

Option 3: Microfibre Quilts
Our Microfibre quilts are designed for those who want the look and feel of feather and down, but for allergy reasons are unable to enjoy feather filled products. The microfibre quilt is lightweight, has excellent loft, and can be used all year round. It is also easy to care for, simply requiring a hand wash or machine wash and regular airing.
Option 4: Cotton Quilts
Cotton is a popular choice for all types of bed linen and bedding due to its durability, moisture-wicking properties and temperature regulating capabilities. As a fibre, cotton has a high absorbency rate and its unique fibre structure allows it to breathe easily. A good conductor of heat, it keeps the body cool in summer and warm in winter, making it a great option for all seasons.
In saying this, if you consider yourself a cold sleeper or in need of extra warmth, our cotton quilt possesses slightly less loft than other fibres, meaning it's often better suited to people who live in warmer climates.
Trans-Seasonal Quilts for Year Round Use
If you're looking for the perfect option to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, our selection of breathable, trans seasonal quilts will allow you to get a good night's sleep all year round.
