What Is An All Season Duvet? Benefits, Downsides, & More

Our nighttime environments can be just as unpredictable as those in our waking hours. For those in temperate countries, a common night’s sleep could range from sizzling summers to cold winters. But for Singaporeans, this could simply be whether or not you chose to turn on the aircon or the dehumidifier for the night.

But whether it be circumstantial or by choice, what if you had a two-in-one duvet that you can use for both the hot and cold season? This is exactly what an all season duvet in Singapore provides. 

Here, we'll answer: what is a duvet? How do all season duvets set themselves apart from the rest and how do you pick out the best duvet in Singapore that suits your changing sleeping habits? Read on to find out!


What Is An All Seasons Duvet?

Also known as a four-season duvet, an all season duvet is a convenient way to be sure you're at the right temperature in bed all year round.

This type of bedding comprises a lighter duvet and a heavier duvet, both of which include separate duvet covers. But if one duvet isn’t enough to ward off the nighttime chill, both duvet inserts can be attached together for a warmer night’s rest.

All season duvets are versatile bedding items accessible to different types of sleepers regardless of climate.  

Setting The All Season Duvet Apart

A duvet is often confused with a comforter or a quilt. However, these three have distinct characteristics. The main difference between a comforter vs duvet vs quilt is the appearance and feel. Popularly sold as duck or goose down comforters, this bed covering is known for its grid-like quilting, keeping the filling in set spaces.

A comforter in Singapore is popular for those making their beds in a rush. This one-piece blanket results in a fixed appearance and purpose - keeping you warm. 

An all-season duvet with cover is more flexible when it comes to design and function. A duvet cover set can be changed to match whatever design strikes your fancy. And as mentioned, it is composed of two separate duvets (light and warm) with different TOG ratings.

Pitting duvet vs. quilt yields significant differences as well. A quilt and quilt cover in Singapore are crowd favorites as these are better suited for warmer climates. This is in contrast with all-season duvets or blankets with temperature-regulating properties which are compatible with both warm and hot seasons. 

The intricate quilting technique ensures the filling is more securely distributed across the blanket. In terms of designs, quilt covers may be a bit too dated for current tastes as compared to modern duvet covers like an all-season blanket. And as a one-piece material, quilts are challenging to launder regularly as well.

What about the difference between a regular duvet and an all seasons duvet? Its key benefit boils down to flexibility. A regular duvet normally has one setting - either it cools or warms. An all season duvet has two settings, used alone or together as needed. However, some thermal-regulating duvets are suitable for different types of weather as the material adjusts according to the environmental temperature.

Between the heat and humidity in Singapore, an all season duvet can spell the difference between a cool or sweaty night’s rest. As such, an all season duvet paired with a breathable duvet cover in Singapore will enable you to adjust to any sleeping environment with ease.  

Should I Get An All Seasons Duvet? The Benefits And Downsides

Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of an all season duvet is key to assessing if these types of duvets are fit for you. First off, all season duvets are more cost-friendly in the long run - allowing you to get two duvets at a lower price.

All season duvets are also great for those sensitive to changing climates, or those just plain indecisive on how they like to sleep each night. Maybe you have come from the office looking for a warmer bed or you might need to cool off after a hot day. Having the option to sleep wrapped in a toasty warm blanket or a light and cool one on a whim makes for a great night’s sleep each time.

However, the bulk of an all season duvet might be a bit cumbersome. If you’re not using both blankets together, you would need extra storage space - or a guest room, doubling as an extra duvet for guests.

What Makes For The Best Duvet For All Seasons?

The best all season duvet is found based on its properties. These include:

Tog

Tog is a metric for how well a duvet can capture and retain heat. On a scale of 1-15, the higher the tog, the warmer the duvet. An all season duvet set must have a thinner duvet at around 4.5 togs for warmer days and a thicker one at around 9.0 togs for chillier days. If the temperature drops too low for comfort, the two can be fastened for the perfect winter duvet of 13.5 tog.

Filling Material

Whether you choose a natural or a synthetic-filled duvet, most come with the option of being all seasons. However, natural and semi-synthetic fillings like TENCEL™ are preferred for being long-lasting and more breathable, allowing them to stand the test of time.

Weight

Thinner duvets would weigh around 400gsm and below, while thicker duvets would weigh around 600-800gsm. As the best of both worlds, all season duvets are at a medium weight of 400-600gsm.

Construction

The way a duvet is sewn together also plays a role in its effectiveness. Sewn-through duvets make for set boxes of filling to ensure nothing moves out of place, while baffle box construction inserts a thin layer of material between the top and bottom layers of the duvet so that warmth is equally distributed all throughout the duvet. Each has its own advantages, with lower tog duvets usually employing the former, and higher tog duvets the latter.

Fasteners

Such a small detail but critical for all season duvets - make sure your duvets have fasteners that are easy to put together and remain machine-washable despite the added parts. Common designs include button closures and corner ties.
