Traditional Comforters/ Duvets like Down duvets cover the body with sheer bulk, 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 is a completely different type of material compared to traditional duvet fillings. Silk duvets are designed to allow air to flow more freely and regulate your body’s heat. The result is your body stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
