There are a few things to consider when selecting the best duvet inner NZ for your bed. The price, fill type, feel and sourced materials are all factors that can influence your choice.
For hot sleepers temperature regulation is key and NZ wool and Alpaca are breathable duvet inners available in winter and summer weight options. For a middle of the road option you could try a goose down duvet inner.
1. Good Linen Co Luxury Pure Wool Duvet Inner
This high-tech duvet uses Outlast technology (developed by NASA for astronauts) to regulate your body temperature throughout the night. Encased in soft cotton with a 300 thread count, it’s machine washable and tumble dryer safe.
Wool is a natural fibre, so it can have a slight odour. However, this is normal and should dissipate with time. It’s hypoallergenic, mould and mildew resistant, and able to repel dust mites.
A great choice for winter, this all-seasons duvet from high street favourite John Lewis is soft and lofty, with one 7.5 tog layer for spring and autumn and a 3.5 tog layer that can be clipped together for more warmth. It’s suitable for machine washing too, which is a bonus for busy households. Finished with a lovely sheen, it feels super luxurious and warm.
2. Japara Cotton Duvet Inner
A quality duvet inner is an investment in a great night’s sleep. Choosing the right filling and weight is key to keeping you at the perfect resting temperature for deep and restful sleep. A well cared for duvet inner will last many years providing comfort and warmth night after night.
There are a wide variety of duvet inners to suit your needs, from natural New Zealand wool, luxurious feather and down or easy care microfibre. You can also choose hypoallergenic duvet inners, perfect for anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma.
All duvet inners will eventually lose their loft and shape over time, so it is important to know when it’s time to replace yours. The signs to look for include visible rips, tears and undone stitching. You will also notice that your duvet inner feels flat, with no more bounce. When this happens it is a good idea to visit Briscoes and check out the range of duvet inners on offer.
3. Moemoe Alpaca Duvet Inner
As the name suggests this duvet inner is made with Alpaca, and is the optimum choice for hot sleepers. It regulates body temperature by drawing moisture away and releasing it into the air, which keeps you cool during summer and warm during winter. It is also odourless, resistant to mildew and dust mites and hypoallergenic.
This luxury 450gsm duvet inner from Moemoe features natural alpaca fibre, which is lighter than wool but still a great thermal insulator and has moisture wicking properties to keep you cool and dry. It is also odourless, hypoallergenic and resistant to mould and mildew and is 100% NZ made.
As you can see, choosing the right duvet inner for your needs depends on a number of factors, including your sleeping conditions and budget. If you’re not sure which one is the best for you, talk to the team at your local Briscoes. They’ll be happy to help you find the perfect duvet inner.
4. Soak and Sleep Wool Duvet Inner
With a high-quality duvet inner, you’ll get a better night’s sleep. But, with so many options to consider – from filling and size to tog ratings, price and care – it can be tough to decide what’s best for you.
Traditionally, down and feather have been the go-to duvet inners as they create a plump, cosy feel and are great for keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. However, because they are sourced from ducks and geese on a large scale it can raise ethical issues. Plus, they aren’t machine washable and need regular plumping.
Nanu’s duvet solves this problem with a clever design that features two halves with different tog ratings – 4.5 for summer and 10.5 for autumn/spring and winter. This way, each partner can enjoy their ideal temperature without having to fight over the duvet! Plus it’s machine washable (although you should only tumble dry) and has a super soft 329 thread count cotton jacquard outer.
