If you’re making an investment in an item that you’re going to use every day, you must make sure you make the right choice. Then silk duvet covers will never let you down. Here are a few points to consider:
First, silk allows for air to pass through it unlike the thick layer of down which is found in diabetes. As air is able to move more freely, nighttime perspiration caused by overheating can be dramatically reduced. Due to the fact that perspiration is notably reduced, a silk duvet does not need to be washed like a down one. Instead, airing is all that it requires. Second, the feathers in down duvets form a barrier which keeps heat trapped underneath. While this keeps the sleeper warm at first, the temperature underneath the duvet can become so high that it can cause overheating. With an increased temperature, this can result in tossing and turning throughout the night. Third, to achieve the same level of warmth that a silk duvet offers, a down duvet would have to be heavily stuffed with feathers, resulting in it being ungainly and hard to manage. Also, the feather filling in a down duvet is sewn into pockets to distribute it across the duvet.
If you are currently trying to decide whether to purchase a silk bedding or a down one, please do not hesitate.
