Best duvet 2024: snuggle up for a great night's sleep

We've reviewed the best duvets available in 2024, from down to wool to synthetic

Searching for the best duvet may cost a bit extra, but think about what you're getting in return. Most of us spend a third of our lives in bed, so it's worth investing in a duvet that delivers that perfect balance of warmth, breathability, and cosy comfort.

When buying a new addition to your sleep set-up, you should always consider your duvet as the third item in your arsenal of sleep tools, along with the best mattress and the best pillow. Get all three right, and you're giving yourself the best chance of getting a top night's sleep.

To put together our best duvet ranking, we've picked out our absolute favourites, for a range of budgets and featuring a variety of fillings. Below, you'll find duvets stuffed with bamboo, wool, silk, goose down, microfibre and more, so you're sure to find the best duvet for your needs – check out our duvet size guide for details on how to pick the right size, tog and material.

In the duvet market, price isn't always a reflection of quality. So, to make sure you spend wisely, we've tested all the best duvets, from decades-old names like Silentnight and John Lewis to more recent newcomers like Emma, Nectar, Simba and Panda. We've also got duvet options at a range of price points, from bargain bedding to more luxurious options if you have a bit more cash to splash.

Read on for key things to consider, followed by our top picks of the best duvets you can buy in 2024.

Duvet FAQs

What tog should my duvet be?

A duvet tog rating tells you how warm it is – a higher number is a warmer duvet. A tog rating between 1 and 4 is designed for use in the summer, 5-10 tog will work for spring and autumn, and in the winter (or if you sleep cold), go for anything between 10.5 and 15. Read our guide on when to change to a warmer duvet for more.

What's the best stuffing for a duvet?

The most traditional duvet filling is down, which is lightweight and retains heat well. However, down duvets can lead to overheating, so some people prefer synthetic fibres, which tend to be more breathable and easy to wash. Or you might opt for a duvet made with other natural materials, such as wool, bamboo or silk. For more on this, read our article on how to choose the right duvet filling. There are also some stuffings that can worsen allergy symptoms, so head to our guide to duvets for allergies for info on that.

What duvet sizes are there?

There are different UK, US and EU duvet sizes. In the UK, you can find Single, Small Double, Double, King, Super King and Emperor. For US, there's Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King and California King. EU sizes include Single, Double, King and Grand King. See our duvet size guide for more.

How to choose the best duvet: buying tips

There are a few more things to consider when choosing the best duvet for you. As well as the basic tog system that we've explained in the intro of this article, there are a couple other options to be aware of. The first is the 3-in-1 style duvet. A popular approach, these typically include a light summerweight duvet and a slightly warmer autumn/spring weight duvet, along with some kind connecting system so you can combine them into one mega cosy duvet when winter arrives. 

You might also find that some newer duvets don't actually have tog ratings, and instead use special materials to regulate your temperature automatically. The new Simba Hybrid Duvet is an example of this trend. Finally, on the tog front, if you're part of a mismatched couple where one of you tends to sleep hot and the other cold,  there are a few brands that will offer split-tog duvets, where one half is thicker and the other thinner, to address the issue. Finally, if you're confused about sizing, our mattress and bedding size guide explains the different US, UK and EU sizing and naming conventions.

How we test duvets

How we test

To put together this ranking, wherever possible we call the duvet in and spend at least a couple of weeks (usually longer) sleeping under it to see how it performs. We consider things like how well it keeps us warm, how breathable it is, whether there are any funny smells or if it's noisy and crinkly to sleep under. We'll also look at the build quality, finishes, fabrics, packaging and any special features – for example, where it's two duvets that are designed to be combined for extra tog power, we'll assess how the mechanism works and how convenient it is to use. 

Specs and info from the brand around how ethically and sustainably the duvet has been produced also feed into our decision making, along with any certifications to do with allergies and the like. Finally, we look at what other reviewers have said, to make sure we're not missing anything big. 

In the cases where we haven't been able to get hold of a product, but feel it's worthy of inclusion, we research what other customers and reviewers have said, and combine that with what we know about different filling types and brands to put together an informed blurb for you to base your decision off.
