A warm winter duvet is a must-have and not everyone can afford luxury wool or organic choices. Breathable natural materials are a superior choice, but they do come with a premium price tag. This polycotton duvet is an excellent budget choice at under £15 for a snug, warm bed during the coldest months of the year. It is warm, not too heavy and brilliant value for money at under £15. It is not particularly breathable as its made of 60% Polyester, but it insulates very well. It will not last a decade, but it will get you through a few cold winters.
