Buyers Guide Quilts

Buyers Guide: Quilts
Quilts are so important for a good night's sleep. There are so many things to take into account when
choosing one that's right for you including the material, weight and warmth of the quilt, and of course, the season.
We've created this handy buyer's guide to put all the information in one place to help you choose the right quilt so you love your bed.
What are the materials available?
Wool

Wool is a natural material, which means it is both an excellent insulator and naturally breathable. These qualities make wool quilts suitable all year round. Pure Zone offer 2 different weights, 300GSM and 500GSM, so you can choose the most comfortable weight and warmth for your bedroom. Wool quilts should be aired periodically and dry-cleaned only.

Cotton

Cotton is a natural material that is light and comfortable, extremely suitable for a summer quilt or warm sleepers. Pure Zone’s cotton quilts are machine washable.

Bamboo

Bamboo is one of the most hygienic and sustainable natural materials available. Bamboo fibres naturally allow for temperature regulation and are light and soft, making them excellent quilts for the warmer months. Bamboo is a sustainable crop, taking less time and water to grow. It also has natural hypoallergenic and antibacterial qualities making it one of the healthiest fibres to sleep in. Bamboo quilts should be dry cleaned.

Microfibre

Microfibre is a synthetic material that is light and fluffy with superior hypoallergenic qualities. Microfibre quilts are versatile, as they can be made ultra-light for a cool, summer quilt, or, with a higher GSM and fluffy loft, they can also be a cosy alternative to feather and down. Microfibre quilts are machine washable but can also be dry-cleaned.

What are the best options for outer casing?
Cotton Japara

Cotton japara is a natural material that has been waxed. Waxing the cotton helps to repel liquids and stains, making it one of the highest quality options for quilt casing. The density of the fibres will also help to prevent wool or feather pieces from migrating through the casing, minimising any potential allergic reactions. As a natural cotton fabric it is also breathable for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Microfibre

Microfibre is a soft synthetic fibre that is incredibly light and hypoallergenic. It is a comfortable and hygienic choice, especially for allergy sufferers, and is very quick-drying.

Bamboo

Bamboo is the ideal casing for bamboo quilts as it maintains the hypoallergenic and antibacterial qualities of the bamboo fill throughout the entire quilt. Bamboo is also incredibly comfortable as it is light and soft to sleep in.
