One of the advantages of the end of summer is that the intense heat stops wherever it has suffered (that the one who speaks here does it from the north) and we go on to sleep better. Because there is no air conditioning, no fan or system that equal or improve the feeling of sleeping when the temperature is right. It is also time to cover up. Because sleeping on or just covered with the sheets is not the same as sleeping well wrapped up.
At this stage of transition between heat and intense cold, you may not be clear about what is best for your bed. If it is time to remove the duvet cover or if it is enough with a quilt and / or blanket.
To clarify this point and the types of bedspreads and the most appropriate weights for these days, the textile firm La Mallorquina, offers us its help and reveals which are the best options for rest in the last summer nights.
The lightest Nordic fillings
In some parts of the country, the nights are cool and we need a companion to comfort us throughout the night: Nordic in its lightest version gives us comfort and shelters us on mountain nights. Another option to the Nordic are the bedspreads or quilts that, apart from giving us shelter, decorate and complement our rooms.
In places where temperatures have already dropped, such as in the North or in mountain sites, La Mallorquina recommends the lighter duvets with 125 gr / m2 filling (from 31.45 euros).
Those from the Catalan firm are 100% microfiber, made of hollow silicone Dacron fiber that facilitates air circulation and reduces the appearance of humidity. They are hypoallergenic duvets due to their composition, both the fiber and the fabric do not cause allergies.
It is a piece of padded fabric, filled with synthetic fiber or other materials, that covers the bed sheets. Its main function is to decorate and shelter and it differs from the quilt due to the thickness of the filling. The quilt can have a thickness of 120 and 200 gr./m2. In neither case can the filling be removed, since the fabric is sewn and has no openings. Contrary to what happens with duvet fillings, which can be extracted from duvet covers.
The Summer quilts or thin bedspreads have a maximum of 120 gr / m2. This filling provides fluffiness and will give a little heat, ideal for spring and summer nights that are cool.
Differences with a quilt
Quilts are a lighter textile that is placed on top of the bed, usually on the sheets. You can find them in different materials, but La Mallorquina recommends the pique or cotton.
The bedspreads have several functions: they warm, protect the sheets and decorate the bedroom. They can also be used on the sofa as a decorative accessory or to take a well-deserved nap. And to sleep soundly.
