After visiting a few incredible Scandinavian countries last year, Stephen (the boyfriend) and I have been contemplating ‘Sleeping the Scandinavian way’. Not in a rude sense, calm down, but in trying out separate duvets. We thought it was quite novel when it was -5 outside and we cosied up in the hotel, cocooning ourselves in our individual duvets. Now having tried it a few times, I’ve been warming up to the idea.
When Eve Sleep contacted me and asked if I wanted to try their new Danish duvets, I jumped at the chance. I immediately thought how Stephen and I could sleep the Scandinavian way at home. The duvets are available in all sizes including King but I thought, why not try separates?! Could this be the ultimate cosy experience or would I really miss my King Size duvet?
I was sent the ALL SEASON duvets. A clever combinations of 2 duvets, spring/summer 4.5 tog and autumn/winter 9 tog with the ability to loop them together them for an ultimate super warm duvet of 13.5 tog! for extremely cold conditions. Now that it’s winter, it’s the perfect time to trail these out!
We also had chance to test the Eve memory foam pillows, which Stephen is seriously loving. He even took it with him when we stayed at my parents house over Christmas!
Now that I’ve tried ‘sleeping the Scandinavian way’ at home, what do I think?
Firstly these duvets are SO warm and cosy, it’s unreal! We live in a very draughty Georgian townhouse and even when the temperature plummeted we had no idea as we were so unbelievably cosy.
Sleeping with separates. I’ll most definitely keep doing this winter and cold weather. Without a doubt it’s the warmest way to sleep, no air gaps and no risk of having the duvet being pulled off you in the middle of the night. Unlike what I initially thought, it doesn’t distance you from your partener. We can still cuddle, these aren’t separate beds, the separate duvets can easily be squished up together or even with a stylish king size throw over the top.
I may switch back to the king size sheet in the summer but as far as this sleeping experiment goes, I think it was a success. The Eve duvets are such great quality, so warm and cosy, we will continue to use them.
Would you try to sleep the Scandinavian way?

*Duvets from Eve are made in Denmark from ethically sourced duck down. I’m normally one that avoids feathers but these have been highly regulated, ethical sources. So if you are to choose a down duvet then I do suggest to look at Eve’s duvets. It’s so important to find out where your materials are sourced!
