WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Lightweight: Cotton quilts are extremely lightweight. A little less than a wool blanket. Opting for a cotton quilt over a blanket means a little extra comfort for those who prefer the snugness of a quilt. It also means you can use all your amazing quilt covers without the weight and warmth of your winter quilt. Cool: Both the cover and the filling are nothing but all-natural cotton. No synthetics at all. Cotton is naturally cooler than a lot of the other popular quilt fibres. Perfect for those hot summer nights as well as those really hot sleepers. Breathable: One of the best properties of natural cotton is that it's highly breathable. So when you're hot, your quilt is working to dispel that heat away from your body. Absorbent: By absorbing and drawing away moisture, cotton helps to regulate your body temperature. This means you'll get a much more comfortable and restful night's sleep. Machine washable: You read that right. You can save $$$ by avoiding expensive dry cleaning fees. Healthguard treated: Anti-microbial, anti-bed bug, anti-dust mite, and anti-bacterial. The treatment acts as a repellent that forces mites to move away from treated areas. It inhibits the growth of yeast, mould and bacteria. Healthguard is also completely safe, non-irritating and odourless. Considered: Manufactured in a factory that meets the Oek-Tek Standard 100 - so they're certified to be free of harmful chemicals.
