However, it maintained its quality through several wash cycles.

Additionally, this duvet comes with a reusable drawstring duffle bag for storage or travel.

The Panda Cloud Duvet is silky soft.

The duvet cover is made of the softest, most luxurious bamboo fibres. 🌱

This is without doubt one of the silkiest duvets we've ever slept with - so much so that it almost feels sinful to add a duvet cover.

Luckily, the duvet is fully machine-washable, so this option is open to you (though we wouldn't recommend washing too often as the white colour is quite sensitive). 🛀

It also dries naturally in half the time of regular duvets and quickly returns to its original shape.

What are coverless duvets?

Coverless duvets are washable duvets that don’t need a duvet cover. 🧼

They usually come with a non-removable cover that is already attached to the duvet.

This makes them easy to use as they can be chucked in the wash with the rest of your bedding.

We tested the Night Owl duvet for ourselves.

The Night Owl (recently renamed Night Lark) range is one of the bestselling coverless duvets available.


Who are coverless duvets suitable for?

For some people, changing bed sheets is a nightmare. 😱

But even those who don’t worry about grappling with their duvet should consider the many benefits of an all in one duvet.

A coverless duvet is a particularly good choice for:

  • Elderly or disabled people who struggle to change their sheets
  • Those with busy lifestyles looking for a duvet that saves time on making the bed and ironing sheets
  • Those on a budget who don’t want to keep buying separate duvet covers
  • Those with children who suffer from bedwetting and are looking for a washable alternative
  • People with limited storage space who worry about duvet covers clogging up the cupboards
  • Those with allergies who need to reduce moisture and dust build-up in the bed

So, what are the main benefits of a no cover duvet?

We'll go through all the advantages of coverless duvets in the next section. 👇

Benefits of a coverless duvet

Coverless duvets are a fuss-free and practical option, and it's no surprise many people are upgrading their regular duvets to an all-in-one duvet. ✨

But what exactly are the main advantages of a coverless duvet that make them better than duvets with a cover?

Coverless duvets take up less room

You don't need to purchase additional duvet covers for a coverless duvet.

You can save storage and use the extra space for other things.

So, you've got more room (and money) for throws and pillows!

They are machine-washable and tumble-dry friendly

Coverless quilts are fully machine-washable and often tumble-dry friendly.

washing coverless duvet
Coverless duvets are machine-washable.

Washing a duvet prevents the build-up of bacteria, skin cells and moisture in bedding and reduces symptoms of allergies and skin conditions. 🦔

This makes them a much more hygienic choice than regular non-washable duvets.

Coverless duvets make changing the bed easier

Most of us dread wrangling with the duvet cover every week.

By investing in a coverless duvet, you no longer have to add this to your list of to-dos.

A spare coverless duvet is also a great way to accommodate unexpected guests who need additional bedding quickly.

Can you really wash a coverless duvet?

A coverless duvet really is machine washable. 🧼

Most coverless duvets are designed to fit into standard washing machines.

However, when we tested the Night Owl coverless duvet, we found it barely fit into our 7 kg machine.

Instead, we had to take it to a laundrette with large-capacity machines.

coverless duvet washing instructions
A washable duvet coverless is highly practical.

This is not ideal for those who want a fuss-free option that doesn't take too much time.

Therefore, you should check your washing machine capacity before investing in a king-size coverless duvet or larger.

How do you wash a coverless duvet?

You can wash your coverless duvet the same way you would your other bedding.

We recommend checking the washing instructions first to ensure you use the correct setting and temperature for your particular washable duvet.

We answer more of your questions about keeping coverless duvets clean at the end of the article.

Most coverless duvets can be washed between 30 - 40°C, but it's always best to check.

The Night Owl and Night Lark range can be washed up to 40°C.

Our favourite Night Owl coverless duvets:

Coverless duvet sizes

Coverless duvets are available in most standard UK sizes.

You can buy a coverless duvet in the following sizes:

  • Coverless duvet single size - 135 x 200 cm (53” x 78” approx)
  • Coverless duvet double size - 200 x 200 cm (78” x 78” approx)
  • Coverless duvet king size - 230 x 220 cm (90” x 86” approx)
  • Coverless duvet super king - 260 x 220 cm (102” x 86” approx)

UK duvet sizes

We recommend buying your coverless duvet one size up from your mattress.

This helps to give your bed a fuller look.

Coverless duvet prices

Coverless duvet prices range depending on the quality of the product. 🧵

You should consider spending more on a duvet that will be used frequently.

Coverless duvets made with quality materials will be more durable in the wash and withstand the test of time.

Dunelm coverless duvets, for example, are much more affordable but may not last as long after frequent washing.

The table below is a good indication of coverless duvet prices:

Price We recommend
Budget £20 - 50 Silentnight coverless duvet
Mid-range £40 - £80 Night Owl coverless duvet
High-end £80 + Panda coverless duvet

We recommend buying the best duvet without a cover that you can reasonably afford.

The Silentnight Coverless duvet set is our favourite budget-friendly option.

Are coverless duvets any good?

If you’re looking for a more practical and fuss-free alternative to changing your bedding, then a coverless duvet set might be for you. 🥰

They’re great for those who struggle with their sheets or for anyone looking for a washable duvet that can be kept fresher for longer.

Here's a reminder of the best coverless duvets UK:

Frequently asked questions

  • Are coverless duvets hygienic?

    While there is no scientific-backed research on this topic, it is thought that a coverless duvet could be more hygienic

    Unlike regular duvets where often only the cover can be washed, you can put the entire coverless duvet in the washing machine. 

    This helps to remove any build-up of dirt, moisture, dust mites or other bacteria for a fresher and cleaner feel. 

  • How often should I wash my coverless duvet?

    If you suffer from allergies or sweat often during sleep, you should wash your bedding more regularly. 🤧

    Likewise, if your coverless duvet doesn't need to be washed as frequently as your sheets, you can create a less regular washing routine. 

    Excessive washing of your coverless duvet can lead to pilling of the material.

    This is particularly true for cheap coverless duvets that aren't as durable. 

  • How can I keep my coverless duvet clean?

    There are ways you can reduce how often your coverless duvet needs washing. 

    Showering before bed can improve bedding hygiene.

    It can also help those with sensitive skin. 🦔

    If you suffer from eczema or other skin conditions, a bath or shower before bed helps your skin retain its moisture and reduces dirt build-up in the bed that can flare up the skin. 

    It's also a great way for excessively hot sleepers to have a cooler sleep. ❄️

    A coverless duvet made with durable natural fibres, such as the Umi Goose Feather and Down coverless duvet, will last longer and be kinder to the skin. 

  • Can you tumble dry a coverless duvet?

    Most coverless duvets are also tumble-dry friendly

    This means they can be used in the tumble dryer in a low or cool setting. ❄️

    However, you should always check the care instructions for your particular coverless duvet.

    Coverless duvets with cooling technology might not be safe for the tumble dryer, as they can interfere with the material. 

  • Are a comforter and a coverless duvet the same?

    A comforter shares similar characteristics as a coverless duvet, but they’re not quite the same. 

    A comforter is a common term used in the U.S., where duvets with covers are more unusual. 

    Like the coverless duvet, they have their own built-in cover

    They are also usually sold in sets with pillows and sheets, whilst coverless duvets tend to be sold separately. 

    Comforters are typically larger than coverless duvets and hang over the side of the bed. 

    However, you can always opt for a larger coverless duvet. 

    We recommend going one size up from your mattress size. 

  • Who makes the Night Owl duvet?

    The Fine Bedding Company makes the Night Owl coverless duvet. 

    This no cover duvet is one of the most popular coverless duvets on the market. 

    It is machine-washable and tumble-dry friendly, kind to the environment and skin, and even has a matching pillowcase set.

    Recently, the Night Owl range expanded into Night Lark, offering even more coverless duvet designs. 

  • What is the returns policy on a coverless duvet?

    You should check with the retailer you bought your coverless quilt from in order to find out if you can get a refund. 

    The product details will be available on the website or with your invoice. 

    You can also contact customer service to find out more about the returns policy. 

    Most products will offer free returns within 14 days if the item is returned unused in its original packaging. 

    However, due to hygiene reasons, bedding products that have been used are usually non-refundable. 

  • What tog duvet do I need?

    What tog duvet you need can depend on a range of factors, such as how much you react to different temperatures and the season. 

    We recommend:

    • Up to 4.5 make great summer duvets
    • Up to 10.5 togs for autumn and spring or all-season comfort
    • 10.5 togs or higher are ideal winter duvets

    Again, this will depend on the individual person and what kind of duvet you buy. 

    Natural fibre duvets will be cooler, whilst synthetic duvets will keep in the warmth. 

  • Can you buy an IKEA coverless duvet?

    Unfortunately, IKEA coverless duvets are not available. 

    However, you can get regular IKEA duvets, including polyester, down & feather, and wool duvets.

    IKEA also has a selection of weighted blankets.  

  • Do coverless duvets keep you cool?

    Some coverless bedding is more cooler and breathable than others. 

    If you're a hot sleeper, we recommend a covered duvet made from natural fibres.

    Natural fibres are more breathable than synthetic products and wick away moisture during the night. 

    You should also consider cooling duvets that include temperature-regulating properties. 

    Our article on the best cool mattresses has more advice on the best cooling products. 

  • Where to buy a coverless duvet?

    A coverless duvet is becoming an increasingly popular replacement for a regular duvet. 

    In 2021 there was a TV advert for the Night Owl Coverless Duvet.🦉

    The ad was very popular and started the trend of switching out your regular duvet for a regular one. 

    Coverless duvets have now become a staple bedding product in the home. 

    But where can you get one? 

    Check out the following retailers:

    • M&S coverless duvet
