In Australia, the terms "quilt" and "doona" are often used interchangeably, referring to a bed covering filled with insulation. The primary difference is in the terminology, with "doona" being a more colloquial term.
Consider lightweight quilts or those with breathable fills like cotton for summer. Opt for heavier quilts or those with warm fills like down or wool for winter. All-season quilts with adjustable warmth settings are also popular.
The choice of quilt fill depends on personal preference and factors like warmth, allergies, and budget. Down and feather quilts offer luxurious warmth, while synthetic fills and wool are hypoallergenic options.
Care instructions vary, but many quilts can be machine washed. Always check the care label and follow the recommended guidelines. Some quilts may require professional cleaning.
Feather and down quilts are known for their excellent insulation. The warmth level depends on the ratio of feathers to down and the fill power. Higher fill power indicates better insulation. These quilts are great for colder seasons, providing a cosy and luxurious feel.
Bamboo quilts are prised for their natural breathability. They are often considered ideal for summer or warmer climates. The fabric wicks away moisture, helping to regulate body temperature and keep you cool during the night. Bamboo quilts offer a light and comfortable option for those who prefer a cooler sleep.
Microfibre quilts are versatile and can cater to different warmth preferences. They are available in various weights, from lightweight to extra-warm. This makes them suitable for year-round use. Microfibre quilts are often hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice for those with allergies.
Goose down quilts, similar to duck down, are prised for their exceptional warmth. The high fill power of goose down provides superior insulation, making these quilts ideal for colder climates. They are lightweight and lofty, providing a luxurious and warm sleeping experience.
When selecting a quilt based on warmth, it's crucial to consider factors such as the insulation properties of the fill material, the construction of the quilt, and the season or climate. If you live in a region with distinct seasons, you might opt for different quilts for summer and winter or consider an all-season quilt that can be adjusted for warmth.
Yes, there are hypoallergenic quilt options. Quilts with synthetic fills, wool, or down alternatives are suitable for individuals with allergies, as they resist dust mites and allergens.

Quilts generally have a lifespan of 5-10 years, depending on use and care. If your quilt shows signs of wear, loses its loft, or no longer provides sufficient warmth, it may be time to replace it.
Yes, you can use a quilt with an electric blanket. Ensure the electric blanket is placed on top of the quilt, not beneath it, to prevent damage to the quilt's filling.
A single quilt in Australia typically measures around 140 cm x 210 cm. It's designed for single beds, providing adequate coverage for one person.
A double quilt is larger and suitable for double beds. The standard size is approximately 180 cm x 210 cm. This size provides more width than a single quilt, making it suitable for couples or individuals who prefer extra room.
A queen-size quilt is designed for queen beds and measures around 210 cm x 210 cm. This size offers ample coverage for a queen bed and is a popular choice for couples.
King-size quilts are the largest and provide generous coverage for king beds. The standard size is approximately 240 cm x 210 cm. This size is ideal for those who want extra space and coverage on larger beds.
It's important to note that these sizes are standard measurements, and there might be slight variations based on the manufacturer or specific product. When choosing a quilt, consider not only the bed size but also personal preferences for the amount of coverage and drape you desire. Additionally, if you have a deep mattress or use a mattress topper, you may want to check the depth or drop of the quilt to ensure it covers the entire mattress effectively.
