Winter has arrived without warning, but we are ready to face it with our new product: A 100% merino wool padding with a 100% linen exterior. In this post we teach you how to choose the best Nordic filling. Keep an eye on us at Delenzo!
Stuffing or quilt? Why choose when you can have both?
At dE.LENZO we have launched a nordic filling made of merino wool with a linen exterior but what we like the most is the option of being able to tie it to your bedspreads. linen. This option is ideal for people who are super used to using quilts or blankets in bed and who do not want to give it up despite having a duvet filling.
You can buy a linen quilt together with the duvet and we will make you our system of ties to be able to tie and adjust one piece to another, it is very simple and practical.
So that you can assess different options, below we explain what types of duvet fillings you can find on the market, their advantages and what size you should choose depending on the size of your bed.
Nordic stuffing, unknown to many people
It wasn't until we founded dE.LENZO that we realized that there were many people who didn't use duvet padding for the winter... Is it because of family customs? Have you seen him at home all his life? Contrary to using a filling for the duvet cover, they use a top sheet with a quilt on top and even, if it fits, a blanket.
Currently we can choose between natural and synthetic duvets, the latter being widely accepted due to their lower price.
Thanks to the variety of Nordic fillings, they are gaining more and more popularity and there are many people who are already encouraging themselves to use them. At dE.LENZO we want to explain what types of fillings there are and which ones are more beneficial for your health and more sustainable with the environment.
Types of Nordic fillings, which option is better?

Nordic goose down filling: It is better known and is often used a lot in hotel rooms. It is of natural origin but there are many people who have allergies or certain reactions to the feather inside it. It is not highly recommended for people with a tendency to various allergies.
- If you are going to buy a down comforter, make sure it has downproof technology. It is a technology that prevents the feathers from going outside.
Synthetic Nordic padding: This type of padding is the best known and marketed right now, but its origin is synthetic and, in general, they are less breathable, although there are certainly many options on the market. of the synthetics.Also, they usually tend to attract more mites
What advantages do Nordic fillings offer?
✅The advantage that we like the most is the ease that a duvet filling gives you to make the bed impeccably....It's so simple! You just have to ventilate the bedding, stretch the bottom sheet and then the duvet until you can put it inside the mattress... And all in one go!
✅Nordic fillings are like a whole in 1...No blankets, no quilts! Your bed will look much neater.
✅The best Nordic fillings provide warmth, comfort... exceptional. The feeling of getting into a soft bed... priceless.
✅Winter duvet inserts have more insulation capacity. You will have to consider many factors before buying a winter duvet insert such as the type of house you live in, how you use the heating and if you are a cold person or rather hot.
How to choose the type and size of the duvet?
When choosing the type and size of the duvet, it is important to know what the conditions are like in the space where we are going to sleep in order to choose between one weight or another.
Everything will depend on the temperature in the room, the season of the year in which you are going to use the duvet or even if we use heating at night or not. It is also important to consider the area where our house is located, since it is not the same to use a Nordic winter filling in a coastal area than in an inland area or in the north of the peninsula.
We will choose the size of the duvet based on the size of the bed we have, here are the references:
- For a single bed of 90cm - 150x220cm
- For bed 105cm - 180x220cm
- For a bed 135cm/140cm - 225x220cm
- For a bed 140cm/150cm - 240x220cm
- For a bed 160cm - 260x240cm
- For a bed 180cm - 260x240cm
- For a 200m bed - 280x240cm
How does the Nordic padding weight influence?
For feather or synthetic fillings, for rooms with temperatures above 21 degrees we will use a duvet of about 150/200 grams minimum For winter months (and depending on the use of heating ) Nordic filling of 300 grams.
In the case of Nordic wool fillings, for us the best alternative to the classic options, we will tell you what weights you should choose:
400gr thermal insulation perfect for autumn or spring (or very conditioned houses) it has a thermal insulation of 7-10Tog.
800gr thermal insulation perfect for cold winter nights (houses that do not have heating at night or people who are more cold). It has an insulation of approx 12Tog
