How often should I replace my duvet?
At Ava Innes, we believe a duvet should last 5 years and more if cared for properly. Some organisations such as The Sleep Council and the Good House Keeping Institute recommend every 2- 5 years, depending on the type of duvet and your personal usage.
To keep your bedding fresh, we recommend hanging it on the line on a sunny day, letting the fresh air through. Natural sunlight and fresh air works wonder’s on keeping your duvet smelling fresh and reducing the amount of laundering it will need.
What is the best duvet?
There are so many different options to choose from when buying a duvet and often people make their decision based on price. It is important to understand what is in the duvet and the impact it will have on the quality of your sleep. After all a good night's sleep can make such a difference to our health.

Avoid man-made fibres such as polyester and microfiber, which originate from oil and will heat up, while taking a long time to cool down. Natural wool fibre filled duvets are better for temperature regulation and this is why 93% of Ava Innes duvet customers sleep better citing the temperature regulating quality of the Ava Innes duvet.
