Doona Covers in Australia

Doona Covers in Australia

At the end of a busy day, there is nothing more inviting than a cosy bed adorned with crisp, clean beddings and feathery pillows. As all of you must surely have experienced, the entire world cease to exist once you hit the sack and start releasing all the tensed back muscles. In fact, for some of us caught in life’s rat race, the few hours (8 or more hours if you are lucky) we spend in bed is the only opportunity for relaxation. As a matter of fact, that is why doonas were invented.

First made in European countryside using duck feathers, it was during the 20th century that doonas became popular throughout the world. They freed people from the complexities of making the bed and provided insulation, that is, warmth and protection. Surprisingly, doonas were used even during the warm summers because they were irresistibly comfortable, with a great capacity for ventilation.

Even though they are sometimes understandably confused with blankets and quills, a real doona is supposed to be made of feathers and a cotton casing covers doonas. But today, they are also made entirely of silk, cotton or other synthetic material.

The tog rating, a term most of us are unfamiliar with, is one of the most important factors to consider when it comes to choosing beddings. The tog is the measurement of thermal resistance, that is, the ability of the material to hold heat. Thus, the higher the tog rating is, the warmer you will feel wrapped up in the doona. Manufactured with the right combination of the tog rate, a doona can be used with convenience all year long.

The type of case that covers doonas plays a major role in not just the comfort of the doona but also in its heat conductivity. Choosing the right material that covers doona, according to the requirements is essential to ensure optimum comfort.

A variety of casing which covers doonas which are made of synthetic cotton and are of attractive designs, with convenient back buttons for chaos free inserting/ removal of the doona can be purchased for as low as $75 to $100.

The designs of cases that covers doonas are of various attractive types. Whether it is a plain cover for a classy bedroom, or a floral print for your grandma’s bed, or even if it’s a Goth design for the teenage daughter, you are likely to find beautifully decorated cases that covers doonas.

The best convenience about using separate sheeting that covers doonas is the fact that they can be easily cleaned unlike the case of quills. They also assure perfect insulation during a chilly winter night, while assuring a sweat free slumber during a warm summer evening.

Try Something Different for Your Quilt Cover

Try Something Different for Your Quilt Cover

Trying to find something a little different in a quilt cover? Is it because you’re tired of looking since everything you see looks the same and the only difference is the high prices you’re finding? Maybe you are really looking for something more elegant, something different. You’ve seen all the polyester you care to for a while and silk just doesn’t do it for you. Maybe the material you should explore for your quilt cover is one hundred percent Egyptian cotton.

Not only is this material attractive, and so luxurious it screams elegance, but it’s also highly durable and can be machine washed depending on the size of your quilt cover and the size of your washing machine. Even if it needs to be taken to the cleaners, it does not require expensive dry cleaning.

The kind of Egyptian cotton used to make a quilt cover has a thread count of T330. That makes it a very high quality material. Egyptian cotton never goes out of style. It has a timelessness about it that keeps it in the stores. You can buy matching sheets, pillowcases, shams, bed skirts and even throw pillows for your bed. Or you can mix and match.  Like any other material this one is available in many different colours and patterns.

If this is the material, you choose for your quilt cover you’ll also be pleased to know that Egyptian cotton breathes unlike many other materials. This means it will keep you warm without stifling you. It even has a nice feel to it.  So you will have elegance along with softness. They are also very affordable. Unlike silks and satins that tend to be more expensive buying a quilt cover in this highly versatile material will not cost you a week’s salary.

What Makes it a Luxury Duvet Cover?

What Makes it a Luxury Duvet Cover?

Duvets, more commonly used in Europe until the late twentieth century, come in many types and sizes.  When looking for something a little more special, a luxury duvet cover, there are a few things that make it a cut above the normal covers. One determining factor of a is how closely knit the threads are. This is shown by the thread count. A regular duvet will have a thread count of T150.  T180 is considered a better quality but T220 will be what is used to make a luxury duvet cover.

The next thing to look for in choosing your luxury duvet cover is how the design is put on the cloth. If it’s only printed on that is a sign of lesser quality. But, if instead the pattern is woven into the material, which is a much more labour-intensive process, the cover has a richer look. The pattern will last longer as well. This difference shows distinctly and makes the duvet cover much more luxurious in appearance.

Even the type of trim used is different in a luxury duvet cover then what is used in the regular ones. Trim is what finishes the edges.  The edges might be knife edged, a simple sewing process, or if is a luxury duvet cover, the edges are more likely corded. This is the most attractive, and expensive edging done. It is expensive because it too is a process that requires a lot of labour hours. It will appear like a cord has been sewn around the edges, as it has, and is an eye-catching method of finishing the edges.

Another thing that can turn a potentially ordinary duvet into a luxury duvet is what is gets stuffed with.  Many duvets these days are stuffed with hypoallergenic synthetic materials designed to be friendly to those who suffer from allergies or asthma and so make it possible for them to use duvets. But, luxury is served best by the ones that are down filled.  These are treated with a special agent to prevent the down from bunching and so no longer able to adequately warm the user.

Luxury is also a reflection of how something looks and feels to the user. Be sure you like the appearance, choose carefully the colours and pattern. Then cuddle into bed and enjoy the warmth of your luxury duvet cover.

Quality Silk Quilts in Australia

But what’s Silk and why is silk so good? Silk quilts are extra soft, light and warm. They are also renowned for their warmth in winter and cool in summer features. They are breathable and are like having your own free thermostat. It is a natural hypoallergenic and is resistant to dust mites making it very protective to sensitive skin.

Silk is gathered from silkworms which are fed on natural and pesticide free Mulbery leaves. Because the silkworms only feed on these leaves, resulting silk is some of the finest around. White in colour and made up of individually long fibres, this silk is more refined than other types of silk.

Another benefit of Mulberry silk it is is that it is 100% natural, odourless and hypoallergenic. It contains natural protein called sercine which helps reduce the possibility of allergic reaction. This allows all the silk bedding to be a safe and healthy choice for those who suffer with allergies.

The composition of silk is 97% protein which is common with the human body. Silk filaments have around 35% to 40% of space in its structure which can keep air and moisture. In hot weather silk absorbs and transfers the extra heat and moisture thus keeping a more comfortable sleeping environment. In cooler weather because of the air and the silk filaments, the silk quilt is an insulator keeping the hot air inside with no loss.

Due to silk being natural and having breathable characteristics, silk filled quilts are more flexible than other synthetic filled quilts. Unlike down, feathers or polyester silk quilts cope better with changes in your sleeping environment such as ambient room temperatures or your own body temperature.

Other ailments the Japanese and Chinese have enjoyed silk bedding for many centuries. The Chinese and Japanese believe the amino acids present in silk benefit the skin. They believe this helps prevent vascular sclerosis, helps relieve itchy skin, assist in preventing arthritis & asthma.

Quality of Our Silk Quilts

Our handmade silks contain 100% Mulberry silk. It is the top grade quality in the silk quilt market. The most exquisite silk quilts in Australia are made from long and unbroken Mulberry silk which is stretched and hand layered into a criss-cross pattern.

Inferior silks give off a slight chemical smell, which become stronger in more humid and warmer conditions.

Suffering from allergies or dust related allergies such as asthma silk could be the first choice for you. Silk’s hypoallergenic qualities prevents dust from accumulating. Silk has a natural defense mechanism against all of these irritants and pollutants.

What Makes Silk Allergy Free Bedding?

When silk is produced by the silkworm, its simple and durable structure helps make it hypoallergenic. The silkworm uses a cocoon to protect itself during its transformation. The cocoon is made up of a single continuous strand of fiber, which is held in place with a sticky substance called sericin. While the worm is inside of the cocoon, the sericin protects the worm from various natural threats.

These same qualities are transferred to silk bedding when silk is processed. This manufacturing process typically includes only water, heat, and steam. Most importantly, no harmful chemicals are used in the processing of silk.

Silk Bedding Great for Skin?

Silk contains amino acids which helps the skin reabsorb moisture and calm dryness, which can help sooth eczema conditions or dry skin. Also silk bedding is all natural, it offers people with skin conditions like shingles and eczema numerous benefits. Silk bedding is light and moves delicately over your skin, which reduces the points of contact and can help reduce further irritate associated with shingles.
