First of all, you should know that you can measure silk duvet weight using g/m2. The higher the number is, the warmer the duvet will be. We have 3 different weights of duvet:
- Summer duvet: 180g/m2, for temperatures above 20°C,
- Autumn duvet: 320g/m2, perfect between 16°C and 20°C,
- All Seasons duvet: it is the combination of the 2 first duvets. It is suitable for temperatures below 16°C.
- Winter duvet: 500g / m2. It is perfect for harsh winters, poorly heated rooms or very chilly people.
Choosing your duvet does not necessarily depend on the season, but more on the way you sleep and your expectations in terms of comfort and heat. The room temperature is also important. The hotter the room, the less you will need a warm duvet. For information: a temperature between 16 and 18°C is recommended to sleep well. Regarding your expenses, the All Seasons duvet is the most economical as you can use it all year round and adapt your bed to suit your needs.
