This Summer Duvet has equivalent to approximative 3-7 Tog thermal insulation. It is comfortable for bedroom temperatures between 22.5 and 25 ℃.
We used one 200 g/m2 layer of Carded Combination of Linen and Silk Padding inside. Very soft to touch, excellent draping capabilities. It gives the sensation of coolness.
Why choose a Valeria Home High Performance Summer Duvet?
We are using segments of 5-7 cm of silk yarns and linen, that are perfectly individualized (stick one fiber to the other). These are mechanically laid in a pad that has volume and a lot of air trapped inside; that means in the end - very effective moisture management and very effective thermoregulating capabilities of each Summer Duvet.
The pad is made of 100% natural materials (linen and silk), no artificial substances.
More than that, discontinuous silk production (pad silk) does not need an intact cocoon to start from.
Linen and Silk. The incredible fibres
Silk is a unique and exclusive fibre.
It isolates from heat and cold, makes an excellent thermal insulation, absorbs excess of humidity and quickly releases into the environment.
It does an excellent job of thermoregulating, and it is exceptional in its breathability.
Linen can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture. Absorb and gives way the water vapors very fast.
Flax is actually a cellulose compound and silk is covered by sericin wax. Therefore, there are no allergic reactions when using the duvet. Can be helpful in treating a number of allergic disorders.
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial, perfectly compatible with the human skin.
The delicious sense of comfort offered by products made with Carded Silk Pad derives from the unique characteristics of the silk raw material potentiated by cutting-edge technological processing.
Its advantages include:
• Health benefits
• Extraordinary thermoregulation
• Excellent breathability
• Excellent water and water-vapor absorption capacity without causing a “wet” sensation
• Capacity to release excess moisture to the environment
• Perfect compatibility with human skin naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial
• Naturalness and eco-sustainability of the raw materials and production process.
We have replaced the chemical dust mite treatment with Terpeshield, a natural mixture of pure essential oils that ensure protection and aromatherapy. Geraniol and Linalool are natural terpenes found in pure essential oils obtained from plants by steam distillation.
Anti-insecticide and anti-fungal role of Terpeshield:
- Drives insects and dust mites away - Prevents the appearance of fungi and mold
- Neutralizes bad odors
The Terpeshield aromatherapy:
- Diminishes the stress and increases focus and alertness
- Takes away muscle pain, migrain, indigestion and inflammation
- Extremely efficient against insomnia, anxiety and palpitations
The Geraniol and Linalool can be found in fruits, vegetables, spices or plants as geranium, lemongrass, lily of the valley, lavender, etc. The washing tests carried out in the lab showed that no active residues were found into the washing water or the rinsing water in which the textile products are Terpeshield treated with.
The Terpeshield treatment does not contain phthalates, permethrins (usually known as Nix), endocrine disruptors or other insecticides or chemical pesticides. Moreover, the treatment process does not consume thermal energy.
The multi-layer structure
We are using bates of carded silk that are wave-shaped and multi-layer arranged. This way, we are able to prevent the overcrowding or the migration of the silk inside the product. The linen and silk layer present a density of 200g/sqm.
Fiber-proof cotton fabric
The organic cotton fabric means less allergies
The cotton fabric is not coated (no polymer layer is applied) in order to prevent the migration of the fibers. The organic cotton fabric we are using prevents the fibers to migrate inside the fabric (dense fabric made out of very fine yarns). Moreover, mechanical processes are also prevented. The lack of this coating enables the air and moisture flow, significantly minimizing the perspiration.
- Non-allergic and anti-mites
- Naturally insulating material
- High in air-permeability
- Helps regulate body temperature, achieving a peaceful, good night sleep through the night, in all seasons
Caring for your Summer Linen and Silk duvet:
Machine wash, silk or wool programme. Use the duvet only with a duvet cover. Hygienically we would also recommend, when the weather is appropriate, expose the products to sunlight in order to wick away the natural moisture appeared overnight. Furthermore, it should be taken into account that the UV light is a high-power disinfectant.
