There are several factors to consider when buying a quilt. How do you choose the right quilt? It depends on whether you are a hot or cold sleeper, if you have allergies. It also depends on whether you like having weight on our body or if you prefer to have something fluffy and lofty. There are a range of quilts to suit every type of sleeper and here are some things to look out for.
If you are an allergy sufferer, you would want to look at a microfibre quilt. Microfibre quilts are filled with polyester microfiber and are lightweight. They have excellent loft and can be used all year round. Moreover, microfibre quilts are easy to maintain and to care for. They are machine washable and can be washed regularly - perfect for children and allergy sufferers.

If you love a luxuriously soft, light and fluffy quilt, a goose down quilt is what you are booking for. Goose down and feather quilts have warmth without weight. Goose down is also really durable and breathable, keeping you snug and warm in winter. It also keeps you cool in summer.
Look for goose down quilt where the filling is stitched into a box construction. This will keep the filling in place and keep warmth even across the whole quilt.
