I bought a couple of these last time they had them on promotion and to me they feel very warm for a 4.5 tog duvet, good quality though especially for the price, recommended

When I read the description, I thought it was a cotton duvet (which are normally more expensive), but it is just another synthetic filled duvet, with a cotton cover, so nothing to shout about. I would like to try a cotton filled one, as they have a good reputation, but I have never slept under one.

Synthetic filled means they ARE warmer than you would imagine, as they don't offer the same comfort as natural fillings and can actually feel TOO hot - a feather & down filled duvet is warm, but breathes better and a few have been available recently for about 12 quid (eg. Slumberdown one Netto), but the only good value one I know of at the moment now is a Dorma 6 tog one at Makro (OK, not everyone has access) for 9.99+VAT for the double size.

As for Egyptian cotton, I bought the Aldi Egyptian cotton bedding at Aldi recently, and it is the most creased difficult to handle bedding I have ever had the misery to experience (as well as being BADLY sized!) Normally an Aldi fan, but that was duff.

Description does say the following:-
Luxury Egyptian cotton percale cover
with Spiral fibre filling


Although its a synthetic filling the cotton cover does allow it to breath more than traditional cheap synthetic covered duvets.
plus you never see the actual duvet as it in a cover- so creasing isnt an issue! - unless you dont use a cover

Had both sorts, and makes no difference as you COVER both types in a cotton cover. The cheaper Polypropylene ones however are AWFUL to handle, get covered in clicks that hold the fluff & hair so would never recommend them to anyone, unless you really need a cheap disposable one! (Makro £4.99 +VAT!)

In the past feather & Down quilts were a silly price, say 60 to 90 quid and more, and as such out of my price range, when a moderately good synthetic one can be as cheap as 7 or 8 quid, but recently a few MUCH cheaper natural ones have appeared, and until you try them, you really won't know the difference, I know I didn't. Can't say I would ever want to go back to a synthetic one now, in the same way I would never want to go back to a NON-pocket sprung mattress.

It does beggar the question though, WHY feather & down quilts have suddenly become so much cheaper. and not just "unknown" brands either?

Of course, but people going in to Aldi for these quilts may well see the covers on sale still though, (as in my local store) and they may be even be reduced, but take my word on them, they look & feel GREAT, but are a TOTAL nuisance, and only the quilt cover itself is the correct size, the fitted sheets & both types of pillows are differing WRONG sizes, all far too big!

Not a bad price.
Picked up a Kingsize 4.5 tog one for under £5 from Wilko last year.
