10 questions and answers for restful sleep

How do I find the correct duvet?
When you are choosing your duvet, think about how warm you like to be in bed and take your size into consideration as well. Now you can choose between different fillings, covers, sizes and “constructions” and combine them in order to fit your sleeping habits.

How can I prevent a neck-ache while i am asleep?
Stress during the day requires relaxation at night. Your pillow makes a major contribution to a deep and restful night’s sleep. A supportive pillow is the right choice for those who usually sleep on their side, while a flatter pillow is best for anyone who sleeps on their back or stomach.

How should I clean a natural hair blanket?
We recommend dry cleaning according to the “P” symbol that stands for careful treatment. The exact care labelling, such as washing temperature and drum size of the washing machine can be found on the textile label attached to each individual article.

Which kind of filling is best for someone who is allergic to dust?
For allergy sufferers, we recommend our fresh, skin-friendly fibre fillings. New generation fillings additionally improve moisture transport as well as offering hygienic freshness as they are machine washable. Some can even be put in the dryer. Fibre fillings are available in all price segments.

Why should you change your duvet for summer and winter?
In summer, we adapt our wardrobe quite naturally to suit the warmer temperatures, preferring lighter clothes to heavier, warmer ones. The same applies to your duvet. Who would choose to sleep under a winter duvet in the height of summer or vice versa? If you suit your duvet to match the seasonal changes outside, you will enjoy relaxed and restful sleep.

How long does a good duvet last?
Depending on how intensively you use your duvet, you should replace it every five to seven years. It might still look good on the outside but impressions can be deceptive. Usually after this length of time, its ability to absorb and release moisture is extensively limited. This oxygen-deficient sleeping climate prevents body detoxification leading to a troubled, disturbed sleep. You then wake up the next morning feeling out of sorts and exhausted.

Are mattres protectors still necessary nowadays?
Yes, absolutely, because you need even warmth all around you as you sleep. If you combine a duvet with a mattress protector, a cosy sleeping climate is still guaranteed even if the room temperature is around three degrees lower than usual. In summer, mattress-protectors prevent an accumulation of heat and moisture. An additional advantage is that your mattress is protected and you lie more comfortably.

What size should my duvet be?
When you lie stretched out, your duvet should reach well over your body on both sides and from your chin down to approx. 20 cm beyond your feet. If you are taller than 1.75 m (5’ 9”), we recommend a comfort size duvet with a length of 240 cm.

Are double duvets actually to be recommended for two people?
This question cannot simply be answered with a “yes” or a “no”. For example, if one of the two partners is a rather restless sleeper then it is better to have a duvet each. You should also take into consideration that couples who would like to sleep under one duvet radiate more body heat than one person alone.

How warm should the bedroom be?
The optimal sleeping temperature lies between 16 - 18°C. We would additionally recommend that the room be dark, well ventilated and sufficiently sound proof.
