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.
What does sleeping with the Night Owl duvet feel like?
The Night Owl duvet is perhaps the most popular product sold by The Fine Bedding Company, who are one of our favourite bedding retailers.
We tested the Night Owl duvet for several months – and we haven’t returned to our regular duvet! 😮
The first thing we noticed was the super soft and silky feel of the material.
The material felt softer than a standard duvet cover and was gentle on our skin throughout the night. 🦔
The Night owl duvet was also an immediate hit with our Sleep Hero kitty, who relished her new favourite sleeping spot. 😻
It feels lightweight and cool yet has a full look that kept us snuggled up and warm.
Overall, we experienced the most comfortable sleep ever with the Night Owl duvet. 💕
Night Owl also has a more premium Natural Cotton Waffle duvet.
We'll make some comparisons between these duvets later on in the article.

Benefits and drawbacks of the Night Owl duvet
So, why might you opt for the Night Owl duvet instead of a regular duvet?
Well, this means:
- You don’t have to change the duvet cover when you change your sheets
- You can save storage space (and money) by not needing extra covers
- The duvet is 100% fully machine-washable for a cleaner sleep
- The cover comes in a neutral style to suit any living space
But are there any downsides? 👀
Why shouldn’t you buy the Night Owl duvet?
So far, we’ve experienced many positives with our Night Owl duvet, but there are a few drawbacks that you might consider…
As they come in limited colours that can't be interchanged, a sudden change in the room decor will throw a spanner into the works.
Additionally, since the duvet doesn’t have a protective cover, you may be at a loss if you accidentally spill your morning coffee. ☕
If you can’t remove the stain, the whole duvet will need replacing, which is costlier than just replacing a duvet cover.
It’s also worth noting that whilst this is a fully washable duvet, it may not be suitable for every washing machine.
Ours didn't fit, so we had to take it to the laundrette, which was inconvenient.
We’ll go into more detail on this in the next section.
If you’re not sure the Night Owl duvet is for you, you can try our favourite regular UK duvets instead.👇
Does the Night Owl duvet sleep hot?
The Night Owl duvet has a lightweight and breathable feel. 🌬
It never felt overly warm during hot nights, but it was still super snuggly and warm on cold ones.
However, synthetic fibres aren’t the coolest materials available.
If you are a naturally hot sleeper, we recommend buying the Night Owl duvet in a 4.5 tog size, which won't feel as warm.
Alternatively, you could opt for the Night Owl Cotton Waffle duvet. 👍
The cotton cover encourages better airflow and disperses moisture throughout the night. 🌡
Overall, the Night Owl Waffle duvet felt reasonably drier and cooler.
We liked having the choice between the regular Night Owl duvet and the Night Owl Waffle duvet so we could adapt our duvet choice to the interchangeable weather. 🌦
Night Owl duvet sizes
The Night Owl duvet comes in standard UK duvet sizes.
- Night Owl duvet single duvet: 135 x 200 cm (54" x 78")
- Night Owl duvet double duvet size: 200 x 200 cm (78" x 78")
- Night Owl duvet king size: 230 x 220 cm (88" x 86")
- Night Owl duvet super king size: 260 x 220 cm (102" x 86")
We opted for the king size Night Owl duvet for our double bed.
Choosing a duvet one size up from your mattress helps achieve that fuller 5-star hotel look. 🤩
What tog size is the Night Owl duvet?
The Night Owl duvet is available in 2 tog sizes.
- Night Owl duvet 4.5 tog duvet
- Night Owl duvet 10.5 tog duvet
We recommend the Night Owl duvet 4.5 tog for summer or excessively hot sleepers and the 10.5 tog for winter. ❄
