How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Emma duvet composition
Let's delve into the composition of the Emma duvet. 🧵
It’s made from soft microfibre fabric, so you'll feel like you are floating on a cloud.
One benefit of this material is its lightweight feel, making it highly breathable while keeping you snuggly and warm.
The Emma Cloud duvet has a 6.7 tog rating, also helping to keep you cosy in the warmer months without overheating.
The Emma duvet is machine washable up to 60°C, which is ideal for those who want to keep things fresh. ✨
We’ll go into more detail about washing the Emma Cloud duvet in this section.
Cover & design
The Emma duvet cover is made of 100% polyester microfibre.
It has a simple, white design, with piping along the edge to keep the materials secure.
The circle-patterned stitching on the surface of the cover keep the fillings in place and prevent clumping.
The Emma cover has a silky soft feel, so it’s gentle on the skin when not using a duvet cover. 🪶
Is the Emma Cloud duvet good for hot sleepers?
The Emma Cloud duvet is designed to be temperature-regulating.
It's constructed from light microfibre, which is airy and breathable. 🌬️
The Emma duvet also has a tog rating of 6.7, which is lighter than the standard 10.5 typically seen in many duvets.
This lighter tog contributes to a cooler, more breathable sleep environment.
Testing the temperature regulation of the Emma duvet
To really see whether or not the Emma duvet regulates temperature well, we put it to the test using a thermal camera. 📷
The duvet had temperatures of around 29°C when our male and female testers woke up on a warm June morning (the room temperature was 24°C on the thermostat). 🌡️
For the most part, the Emma duvet felt light and airy and kept us cool at night.
But on particularly warmer mornings, we did sometimes wake up feeling a little toastier than usual.
We concluded that the Emma duvet has good temperature regulation, but you may want to switch out for an even lower tog (or just a light blanket) during a heatwave.
Conversely, a higher tog duvet might provide more warmth and cosiness during the colder winter season.
The duvet you use can affect your sleeping temperature, but you should also consider your other sleep accessories, such as pillows, sheets and pillowcases.

Emma duvet sizes
Before you buy a new duvet, it’s essential to get the sizing correct.
The Emma Cloud duvet is available in standard UK duvet sizes.
- Emma single duvet: 135 x 200 cm (4'6" x 6'6")
- Emma double duvet: 200 x 200 cm (6'6" x 6'6")
- Emma duvet king size: 230 x 220 cm (7'5" x 7'2")
- Emma duvet super-king: 260 x 220 cm (8'5" x 7'2")
It's common practice to pick a duvet that matches your bed size.
However, opting for a larger size can be a game-changer.
A larger duvet gives your bed that draped hotel look, making it more visually appealing.
It also means there's more duvet to share, making it the perfect peace treaty for those duvet tug-of-war nights. 💑
