What to look for in a duvet insert
Looking for the best duvet insert for allergies?
Struggle with night-time allergies such as asthma or eczema? To help ease these symptoms as you sleep, look for a hypoallergenic duvet insert filled with wool. Because wool regulates temperature and manages moisture, it creates a warm, dry environment – the exact opposite of the humid environment allergens like dust mites and fungal spores need to thrive.
By choosing wool, you can help keep allergens out of your bedding – and ease those pesky allergy symptoms.
Looking for a cool duvet insert for hot sleepers?
Hot sleeper? Often wake up feeling clammy and uncomfortable at night? You need a cool duvet insert that keeps you comfy. When it comes to choosing the best lightweight duvet insert for hot sleepers, take a look at these tips:
- Consider weight or thickness: It makes sense that a heavy, thick duvet insert will be warmer – probably not the best choice if you’re a hot sleeper! Instead, look for the best lightweight duvet inserts that are extra thin – but still provide more cover than just a sheet.
- Consider filling material: Some duvet insert materials can make you hotter than others. Synthetic materials, for example, can heat up quickly, without providing a way for the heat to escape – leaving you feeling extra hot and uncomfortable. For a breathable, cool duvet insert, look for wool-filled options. It’s a little-known fact that wool is nature’s miracle material, naturally keeping you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not – that’s what makes it the best duvet insert for hot sleepers.
Looking for the best duvet insert for all seasons?
Feel the chill in winter, but struggle to stay cool in summer? You need an all-season duvet insert. For something that works all year round, look for an all-season option that works as a 3-in-1: a very lightweight duvet insert for summer and a thicker duvet insert for spring and autumn. These can then be attached together to create an extra thick duvet insert for the winter months. So you can adapt your bedding to suit the season – and snooze on in comfort.
Looking for an easy care duvet insert?
We all want to keep our bedding as fresh and clean as possible. But cleaning your duvet insert can sometimes feel like a real chore. What if it was easier to care for?
The great news is that with a wool-filled duvet insert, it is. Wool is naturally hypoallergenic, but also naturally self-cleaning too. In other words, you really don’t need to clean your wool duvet insert at all – unless you spill something on it, of course.
And if you do – don’t worry! With deluxe wool duvet inserts from Woolroom, they’re fully machine washable – simply pop in the machine with some specialist wool detergent, then put on the line to dry. Easy!

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
The good news, is wool will really help with your night sweats.
If you're unsure on which weight is going to be right for you, then I'd suggest the all-season would be a safe-bet. It's made up of two comforters (summer weight, and fall weight) which can be poppered together to make a winter weight.
I hope this helps, but don't hesitate to get back in touch should you have any further questions. We can be reached via phone, email or LiveChat :)
