The Benefits of Microfibre Duvets
What is better than waking up on a chilly morning and feeling nothing but the soothing warmth of your duvet? When you can find a comforter that offers the right balance of warmth and weight, style and substance, and value and luxury, you’ll find yourself retiring to bed a little earlier than usual. Microfibre duvets are among the most popular choices, and for good reason. They offer a host of benefits.
Microfibre is a versatile fabric that is often used in clothing because it is soft yet durable. It can also have a variety of textures. Typically, duvets made from this material are very soft, smooth, and silky. Not only are they exceptionally comfortable, they add an air of elegance and refinement to any bedroom.
The synthetic fibres are much lighter than traditional feather down and this can be refreshing for those who want warmth without added weight. Another benefit is breathability, which is important in ensuring you have a good night’s sleep. Microfibre breathes well and will not trap moisture, like many other fabrics, including satin. You won’t wake feeling sweaty, uncomfortable, or trapped by a heavy comforter.
The synthetic composition offers another benefit for users: it is anti-allergenic. The trouble with down duvets is that they trap allergens and can aggravate symptoms in some people. Microfibre solves this problem and allows everyone to enjoy the benefits of down without the sniffles and sneezes. You can snuggle up with confidence.
Microfibre is not as fussy as many fabrics; you can often clean it in a standard washing machine (though you may want to use a commercial model because of the size). The fibres stay put and do not migrate to the corners as down or cotton fillers do.
