The best material choice for a duvet is personal. Auping has three fillings.

Yes, it’s true, your fitted sheet will also influence your sleeping temperature.
We have jersey and percale fitted sheets. A jersey fitted sheet is elastic because it has been knitted, like socks. Percale is woven, which is why it does not stretch, like a shirt. A jersey fitted sheet will allow you to sink slightly deeper into your mattress for a pleasantly warm feeling. With a percale sheet, you lay on top of your mattress, which is why you might feel less warm. While both of these fabrics are made of cotton, they are processed in a different way, with a different relief. Jersey is more textured, thereby ensuring the warmth is more insulated whereas percale is smoother and releases warmth more easily.
You can buy a cool or warm ticking for our Cresto, Maestro and Vivo mattresses. Warm tickings are made of velours (knitted with cut piles that feel super-soft), a very dense fabric made of wool. A cool ticking is knitted and flatter. The warm ticking retains warmth better and has insulating properties whereas the cooler ticking will distribute the warmth more easily. You can buy two tickings for your mattress of course: a cooler one for summer nights and a warm one for the winter months.
Handy! The tickings can be unzipped, making them easy to wash and/or dry-clean.
