THE SENSO – DUVET
INSTEAD OF AN INTRODUCTION – WHAT SHOULD A DUVET GIVE US?
The layer we cover ourselves with should warm us up but not weight us down, so a good duvet should be light and warm. Although these two characteristics seem to be easy to unify, it is actually a challenging task to create a product that is also characterized by other properties, such as durability and endurance.
Each element included in the composition of the blanket has a separate role that contributes to the feeling of comfort and warmth. Cold feet, get ready to warm up…
THE OUTER LAYER – TEXTILE OF DENSE AND THINNED WEAVING IS A STRONG, BUT TENDER PROTECTOR
The Schlafgarten Senso duvet has a dense woven textile that prevents the loss of fillers and thus maintains its composition over many years of use and washing. It is common for denser fabrics to have the side-effects of heaviness, stiffness, and inflexibility, which are impermissible properties for modern covers. If such a fabric were only thinned, we would adjust the softness and achieve lightness, but in the long run the duvet would be unusable because it would be worn by use. The Schlafgarten duvet has a dense, fine and lightweight fabric that allows for an unobtrusive adaptation of the blanket to the sleeper’s anatomy, which is achieved through special technological procedures, and through which we have achieved durability and resistance to wear. The resulting linen is perfectly suited to the task of challenging a high quality duvet – it preserves the filler, is soft and comfortable and ultimately uninhabitable for mites and small allergens.
THE INNER – THE PROTECTOR OF BODY TEMPERATURE
One of the common misconceptions hides behind the question: How warm is this duvet? If it is well designed, your blanket will be as warm as you are! The task of the duvet is to maintain the temperature that the body radiates in the form of heat. This depends on the composition of its filling.
The Schlafgarten Senso duvet is filled with special silicone hollow fibers that give it the following properties:
Because it adapts flexibly to the sleeper’s movements and anatomy, it conveys a special sense of comfort without unpleasant sliding, no resistance when turning in sleep, slipping and heavy pulling over the body. Also contributing to this is the dispersivity of the fibers, which makes the duvet light and it does not press us, so that it is almost imperceptible and both children and adults can cover themselves with it.
This looseness of thin silicone fibers holds the air, this powerful thermal insulator, in its hollows and ensures that the atmosphere under the duvet has an ideal temperature that corresponds to the physiological body temperature. Due to the specific properties of the filling, there is no accumulation of moisture in the microenvironment.
These properties are practical, as our Senso duvet can be easily washed in the washing machine and dries quickly, which facilitates hygiene.
Although making such a weaving and filler is technologically demanding, we believe it is justified because a good duvet, especially in transitional periods as well as in cold winter nights, is a great ally for a good rest and perfectly completes all the other elements of bedding.
INSTEAD OF A CONCLUSION – WARM MORNINGS DO NOT CARE ABOUT COLD NIGHTS
Due to its heat-insulating properties, the Schlafgarten Senso duvet is an ideal cover for those who are “always cold”, and for people with limited microcirculation, as well as for low ambient temperatures. Sleepers of all ages and weights can enjoy their comfort due to the lightness and flexibility, as the covering does not create an uncomfortable feeling of pressure. Easy maintenance and inaccessibility for mites gives it an advantage from hygienic and hypoallergenic aspects.
We produce the Senso duvet in two standard sizes of 200×140 and 200×200 cm. For our tall sleepers, who are already sleeping on our large mattresses, we will make compatible extended duvets with a length of 220 cm.
