Silk bedding: eats a hole in your wallet but duvets are luxurious and long-lasting

Not many people think of buying a silk filled duvet though, maybe because they tend to be a bit more expensive than other natural-filled duvets, such as wool or feather / down.

But if you’re looking for bedding which is the right temperature year-round, is anti-allergy and feels amazing, silk could well be the answer. If you can afford to splash out and are considering a good down duvet, you might want to compare the benefits of a silk duvet before making your decision.

Silk is a naturally luxuriant material with many qualities that make it ideal for filling a duvet.

Silk Benefits:

+    Naturally hypoallergenic, silk is perfect if you suffer from any allergies.
+    Dust-mite resistant – the critters just don’t like silk
+    Silk is light with very good insulating properties meaning it is both warm and lightweight.
+    Feels beautiful to touch and is a little bit of luxury for your bedroom.
+    Drapes well over the bed and is not bulky
+    Long-lasting, so if cleaned professionally will last you for years and is a good investment.

+    Basically, perfect for those who want a bit of indulgent pampering and may get hot at night.

Silk Negatives:

–    Too expensive if you’re on a budget
–    Less easy to clean if you’re likely to want to wash your duvet frequently.  Some can be washed at home, however  – read our review of  Soak and Sleep’s Luxury Pure Silk Duvet for example.
