We changed over to wool-filled duvets several years ago and wouldn't go back to anything feathery now. Cheaper than silk-filled, warm in winter and surprisingly cool in summer as they are so breathable, and they can be washed so you don't have to go down the chemical, dry-cleaning route. And you're giving much-needed support to sheep farmers - yes, really! (I am not one.) Give them a go, people!

Lots of practical advice, thank you. i read somewhere that sleeping with your head to the North north is the healthiest direction and that sleeping with your head to the West is the worst option - does anyone know if there is any research to prove this?
