Winter cold snaps are the worst if your home isn’t warm enough, but they’re particularly uncomfortable if your bed isn’t a cosy haven. Enter winter doonas, either all-seasons or a heavier quilt type that ensures you stay warm and snug through the night.
There are many materials you can invest in when it comes to winter doonas in Australia, but in our opinion the best are wool, down and bamboo, a material that’s been adopted by several brands to create down-like softness without compromising on sustainability.
Below are our favourite winter doonas in Australia.
Best All-Seasons Doona: Koala
The Koala All-Seasons Duvet has high ratings for a reason – snap one layer off, and you’ve got a breathable doona for summer nights. Add the layer back on, and you’ve got a cosy winter quilt. Using a polyester fibre that mimics down, it’s warm and soft for a good night’s sleep.
Best Wool Quilt: Woolstar
Proudly Australian made, Woolstar are in the business of, well, wool, so it makes sense that they produce some really great winter doonas. The Eco Winter Wool Quilt is big, fluffy and warm – working with your body to regulate your temperature and keep you snug all night.
Best Luxe Doona: Sheridan
When it comes to luxury, down is pretty high up there in terms of filling. The Sheridan Pure Indulgence Goose Down & Feather Quilt uses 85% Hungarian white goose down and 15% white goose feather, meaning it’s super soft, luxuriously pillowy and will practically guarantee a good night’s sleep.
Best Allergy-Friendly Doona: Tontine
Tontine have been in the doona business for decades, and their allergy-friendly offerings are top tier. This Allergy Sensitive All-Seasons Quilt is currently on sale for a ridiculously cheap price tag, and inhibits the growth of mould, bacteria, and dust mites.
