RedHeadKel:  Down comforter all the way, you can switch the cover on it to any print or whatever, it’s basically just a pouch you stick it in. We have one, and my Darling Husband can’t even have it on the bed in dead of winter cause he finds it too warm, I however am cocooned that a happy caterpillar and so toasty warm. My suggestion is invest in a good one, with good quality down, don’t cheap out because a good duvet can last you 20 years!

I love a good real down duvet. I have a peacock alley medium weight duvet from Tuesday Morning, it’s absolutely amazing and I will never buy another brand again (I’m in love with their pillows too). I always buy a king so there is plenty of blanket because we are both blanket hogs. I have a few duvets covers. A heavier flannel grey waffle (for really cool nights), a light cotton grey with white modern burst things(spring and fall), and a silk blend in slate(for summer). All bought at Tuesday morning. We also have a grey fuzzy blanket from jcpenny (I think), it was a wedding gift so I’m not sure where it was from but it’s so warm and light.

we have a comforter and a coverlet thingy (I can’t think of the proper term… its a big woven blanket). Previously I had a duvet over the comforter and I liked the extra weight it added. This time of year I put on the heated mattress pad and an extra heavy wool army blanket as well. Brr!

Hope you find something to keep you warm 🙂

RedHeadKel:  

I second the bamboo. Love it. Especially in nightgowns. And this thread reminds me to remind my Santas about getting some more of them. Thanks! 😉

I also agree that the duvet is easier to clean. I have several heirloom quilts/covers and they get the most use not for performance so much as sentiment. (Although they’re great.)

Just my $0.02.

We have an ultra high thread count cotton duvet cover that feels soo silky in Ivory with matching sheets. Inside is a down comforter. Overtop we do a heavy quilt. It’s dreamy.

RedHeadKel:  We live in Boston, so also very cold! My Darling Husband is always hot, and I’m always cold. In the winter, we have a quilt along with our fleece sheets (literally the best thing ever). We have a duvet folded at the bottom of the bed, that I almost always use – but my Darling Husband doesn’t need to use it (he just uses the quilt), so it’s a good compromise.
