Maybe, your grandparents would only choose natural filled goose feather or down duvet. In general, you will find a range of synthetic fillings in recent years. However, do you know the difference between microfibre and hollowfibre duvets?
Hollowfibre duvets are warm, breathable and light. They are made from fibres which have space between their knotting. They are breathable and are higher than many other comparable duvets filled with alternative synthetic fillings because of the ‘hollow’ space between the fibres.
It is recommended to choose hollowfibre duvets with high quality since they will last for many years.
Microfibre duvets have very fine fibres which are tightly woven and without the hollow space, and offer the ultimate warmth due to their tightly packed fibres. Microfibre duvets are the perfect choice for those suffering from allergies because most of them are treated with an anti-allergy coating. Compared with natural filled duvets, microfibre duvets are lightweight.
Duvets with a microfibre filling can be very light yet warm because microfibre provides warmth without the weight. Microfibre duvets will feel just like down, but they are much lighter and easier to sleep.
As the lightest and finest synthetic fibre, microfibre is available as a duvet filling. Microfibre duvets will offer you extra soft and extremely cosy feeling. You can choose a microfibre one if you have always had a natural-filled duvet but fancy a change.
