A cotton duvet insert can make a big difference in the quality of your slumber. A quick Google search will show you a plethora of options and deciding on which one is best for your unique sleeping needs can be overwhelming. It’s important to note, not all cotton duvet inserts are equal. The quality, materials used, design, and price can vary. We’ll go over the key features and benefits of a cotton duvet insert that add up to create a great night of sleep. 


What Is A Cotton Duvet Insert?  

First let’s go over what a duvet insert is. A duvet insert is a top layer bedding piece that spans over the entirety of the bed, it is often flatter and filled with a brand’s choice of material. Unlike a comforter, a duvet insert requires a protective duvet cover. To learn more about the differences between a duvet insert and comforter, check out our blog post here. Cotton duvet inserts on the market today are often made with a cotton outer fabric and filled with synthetic materials or a combination of natural and synthetic materials. Unlike most cotton duvet inserts, Qbedding’s Cotton Duvet Insert is filled with 100% long staple cotton and is designed with a 100% natural cotton fabric.  

Key Benefits of Cotton Duvet Inserts  

Soft and Long-lasting  

Cotton is a very popular material that is used in bedding and is great for many reasons. It’s a natural plant-based material that is soft on the skin and has long-lasting durability. This is due to the high tensile strength of cotton, making it strong, durable and less likely to pill or tear. At Qbedding, we use a premium long staple cotton filling. The longer fibers of long staple cotton results in an even stronger, softer, and more durable duvet insert.  


With the spring season right around the corner, now’s the best time to reevaluate the bedding materials you sleep in and if it could be harboring irritating allergens. If you have sensitive skin, asthma or seasonal allergies, you’ll be happy to know that a cotton duvet insert is naturally hypoallergenic. This means that it prevents the growth of common household bacteria, mold, and dust mites. A hypoallergenic duvet insert can greatly improve the quality of your rest by helping to reduce congestion, sneezing and itching that can keep you from achieving a peaceful night of sleep. 

Moisture Wicking and Breathable  

We can all agree that waking up drenched in sweat is probably one of the most uncomfortable feelings to wake up to. It can even disrupt your sleep cycle and interfere with your ability to fall asleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Natural cotton is very breathable and has excellent moisture control. The absorbent properties of our 100% cotton duvet insert enables it to wick away any excess moisture from your body and allows air to circulate. It can absorb up to one fifth of its weight in water before it feels damp. Overtime, sleeping on a cotton duvet insert can also greatly improve the quality of your skin. This gentle, moisture wicking material prevents acne and odor causing bacteria that would typically thrive in a damp environment, like a bed, from growing. So, if you’re looking to achieve a clean, moisture balanced, and comfortable sleep environment, then a cotton duvet insert would be the way to go.  

Winter Weather Warmth  

Depending on the filling amount and type of material used, a cotton duvet insert can provide exceptional warmth during colder winter months. In fact, cotton provides twice the warmth of synthetic fibers. For example, our cotton duvet insert has a very thick and even filling of long staple cotton. This results in a secure drape that prevents any cold air from entering and works as a natural thermal insulator for a warm and cozy, yet breathable comfort all night long. Those who tend to get cold throughout the night and the elderly will greatly benefit from our cotton duvets thick filling and thermal insulation.  

One of a Kind  

Now that we’ve gone over what makes a cotton duvet insert so great. It’s important to note that although some cotton duvet inserts claim to be made with “pure” cotton, this may not be entirely true. It could mean that the duvet insert fabric or filling is not made of only cotton. Whatever amount of cotton that was used to create the duvet fabric is pure and the duvet can still be mixed with other synthetic materials, like polyester. So, you could be paying hundreds of dollars for a duvet insert that claims to be made with “pure cotton” and come to find out it's made with a cotton and synthetic blend. The Qbedding Cotton Duvet Insert is one of the only winter duvet inserts on the market that is made of with a 100% cotton outer fabric and filled with 100% long staple cotton. The affordable value and premium quality of this duvet insert makes it a standout star.
