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.
Panda Cloud duvet composition
The Panda Cloud duvet is a silky-soft 10.5 tog duvet with a 100% bamboo cover.
The filling is made from 50% bamboo and 50% nano microfibre.
Even though Panda London focuses on sustainable & eco-friendly products, the Panda duvet is not a 100% natural product.
But, the unique composition gives it the best balance between comfort and temperature regulation. 🤗
It also makes it really malleable and comfortable to snuggle with.
Let’s explore the look and feel of the duvet in more detail. 👇
Does the Panda Cloud duvet sleep hot?
The Panda Cloud duvet was specifically designed to prevent overheating. 🥵
Microfibre can retain body heat, but the Panda duvet design perfectly matches microfibre with bamboo fibres.
Bamboo has great thermo-regulating properties, is highly breathable, and doesn’t retain moisture.
It perfectly balances out any stored heat from the microfibre.
Overall, the Panda duvet keeps you snug and comfortable.
But even with a 10.5 tog, it’s breathable enough to not make you feel too warm. ❄️
This is particularly great for couples as it keeps the chillier sleepers warmer while keeping warmer sleepers at a comfortable temperature.
That said, if your bedroom is freezing and you quickly feel cold at night, you may wish to add another blanket for extra warmth.
Conveniently, bamboo is also hypoallergenic, antibacterial, anti-microbial and resistant to dust mites.
This makes it the perfect choice for people with sensitive skin or those struggling with allergies and hay fever. 🤧
Panda duvet washing instructions
Conveniently, the Panda Cloud duvet is an easy care item that’s fully machine-washable at 40℃.
You can also wash the duvet by hand if you don’t want to machine-wash it. 🛀
Line-drying is best, both for the fabric and the environment, but you can tumble dry at low heat if necessary.
The duvet air-dries in half the time of standard duvets.
Panda duvet prices
The Panda duvet is not the cheapest on the market, but it still comes cheaper than others from online brands like Simba Sleep.
Given its premium quality, the Cloud duvet is definitely worth its price. 💰
It can also be used year-round, so you don’t have to buy multiple duvets for different seasons.
(Note: prices listed below are standard prices excluding any current coupons & discounts)
Panda, as a brand, focuses on creating sustainable, eco-friendly products that are as good for you as they are for the world.
The Cloud bamboo duvet is a proudly vegan, cruelty-free duvet. 🌿
Health & safety
All Panda products carry the OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certification.
This means that they’re free from any harmful chemicals or toxic substances. 🧪
Even though Panda products aren’t entirely natural, the brand uses as much bamboo as possible.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet.
It also uses 70% less water than cotton.
This makes bamboo an environmentally friendly and very sustainable product.
The company also uses sustainable packaging with a free-from-plastic approach:
- Boxes are fully recycled and recyclable.
- Products, where possible, are placed in re-usable bamboo bags.
- Buttons are made of 100% bamboo instead of plastic.
There is no plastic at all with the Cloud duvet.
Instead, it comes in a re-usable bamboo bag. 🥳
We've found it quite handy to store sheets and bedding, but it can also be used as a laundry bag.
Panda products are well-made and built to last.
But if you do need to get rid of your Panda product at some point, you’ll be pleased to know that most materials are recyclable. ♻️
For those that aren’t (like memory foam), Panda has set up the Panda Circle Of Life Programme.
If your product has reached the end of its life, Panda will collect it (free of charge) and repurpose it.
Protecting panda bears
Of course, the beloved panda bear is integral to the Panda brand.
Panda Life, the parent company, is committed to being vegan & bird-friendly, protecting animal habits, keeping them chemical-free, and safeguarding rainforests through OneTribe.
A portion of all profits goes to animal charities to help preserve the habitat of wild panda bears. 🐼
Panda duvet trial & returns policy
A duvet trial period is rare, but Panda is not one to disappoint.
The Panda Cloud duvet comes with a 30-night trial period.
This gives you 30 nights to try out the product and, if you’re not happy, you can simply send it back for a full refund. 💷
Chances are that you’ll be super happy.
97% of Panda customers keep their products.
Should you buy the Panda duvet?
There’s no reason you wouldn’t want to buy the Panda Cloud duvet - it’s one of the best duvets available in the UK!
We can quite comfortably recommend this duvet to anyone looking for a high-quality option that’s silky soft, comfortable, and eco-friendly.
The only reason you may want to look elsewhere is if you’re looking for a duvet with a higher or lower tog rating or if you’d prefer a duvet with all-natural materials.
