Brinkhaus Duvets – Why Silk Is Best

Silk Duvets are Perfect All Year Round

Silk is a completely different type of material to traditional duvet fillings and thus is not measured by the traditional tog system.  Down duvets cover the body with sheer bulk - the more bulk the higher the tog value.  Silk duvets are thinner than down by nature allowing the duvet to drape over the body.  Down duvets form a physical barrier between your body and your surroundings, meaning the heat you give off reflects directly back at you.  This process continues throughout the night resulting in overheating. 

Silk duvets are designed to allow air to flow more freely and thus regulate your body's heat. The result is your body stays cool in summer and warm in winter.  Silk duvets keep you comfortable over a wider range of temperatures, unlike down or polyester.

Significant Health and Comfort Advantages of Silk Duvets

  • Silk, being a natural product is breathable and so enables your body to maintain a more stable temperature.  This combined with some innovative duvet manufacturing techniques results in a duvet that can change the way you sleep.
  • Heat regulating. During the manufacturing process layer upon layer of long fibre mulberry silk floss is placed one on top of the other. This process is repeated until the desired weight is achieved. Layering the silk creates an intricate grid design, which is key to the heat regulating function of the duvet.  Because the silk floss has been layered and not stuffed into the duvet covering, the silk can let some heat escape through the grid design.  This results in a more pleasant sleep because our body temperature is kept at a more constant temperature throughout the night.
  • Hypoallergenic. Silk has some amazing hypoallergenic properties. Silk is a natural protein and therefore is far less hospitable to dust mites which can trigger allergic reactions such as asthma, eczema and rhinitis. Up to 20,000 dust mites have been known to live in a single mattress. The use of silk bedding and silk filled duvets greatly reduces the amount of dust mites in the bedroom.
  • Luxurious comfort. The nature of long-strand silk fibres mean a silk duvet is just as warm but much lighter than traditional duvets, and drapes over your body instead of "suffocating" you with the bulk of a conventional duvet.
