Snuggle up in these warm duvets and quilts
The winter months tend to make us want to stay in bed all day under a pile of comfortable blankets, but warmer textiles such as quilts are more likely to keep you warm with less fabric. The lightness and comfort of these textiles are much more efficient when it comes to warmth, and not just when you’re going to bed – quilts and comforters can fill all different areas of your home for when you want to snuggle up. While quilts and comforters are generally just made from sheet material, they cover a layer of feathers or other warm materials as a way to keep out the cold. This type of bedding is called “nórdico” in Spanish, so you can guess where its country of origin is. In nordic and Scandinavian countries, their ability to create warm and cozy items is unparalleled. Quilts and covers that are filled with fibers (the more economic option) rather than feathers are the easiest type to wash in a washing machine, which makes the sometimes annoying process of washing bedding much easier. Along with those filled with fibers and feathers are duvets filled with down, which are more expensive than feather-filled duvets but more warm and luxurious. However, it’s unadvised to wash these items in a washing machine, so you should instead take them to the dry cleaner’s to be washed. The warmer and higher-quality the down feathers, the more soft and comfortable the blanket will be.
