Heavy synthetic duvet - recommendations please!

I want a really heavy duvet. Mine slightly sits above me rather than falls around me, if that makes sense? I want a duvet that is like down, but it synthetic.

Please give me your recommendations!

not synthetic, but I have recently got a wool duvet and I love it. Spent ages researching it and chose it cause I wanted a heavier one that draped. It is thinner than down or hollowfibre, but pleasingly heavy and drapes over your body wonderfully. Plus it is great at regulating your temperature. I love it.

Mine is from Dunelm and does what you describe. I’m sure it’s described as being a hotel something or other and feels like down. Was about 70quid but was reduced. I’ll see if I can find the link

Oh god for this summer and because I recently moved I only have a lightweight duvet and blanket on me. They really aren't heavy enough.

I need to pull my winter duvet out of storage soon and see if that gives more heavinuss.

Know what you mean though. As soon as I've retrieved other duvet might be able to give recommendations but layering is good. Changing seasons!

I only really like feather divers but dh is really wheezy with them we found wool duvets (ours is from soak and sleep) the best compromise. But it isn’t the same as a feather duvet.

It’s this one- 13.5 tog but never too hot or cold! Only duvet I’ve found which is perfect year round

I have a weighted blanket. Bamboo fabric with small pockets of glass beads. It totally drapes around me, and I sleep like a baby. Once I'm under it, I find it very, very hard to come out.

@Geesus68 oh I looked at that one earlier, I might look into getting that

Hmm. A wool duvet or a weighted blanket... both options to consider, thank you.

@Nikhedonia when I bought mine Dunelm had them all hanging up so you could feel them, might not be the case how cos of Covid but might be worth a visit to store.

I’m lying under mine now and can confirm I’m a perfect temp and it naturally falls over all of me so no gaps Grin

Another vote for a Fogarty wool duvet from Dunelm. I’ve always loved heavy feather duvets but developed a feather allergy (thanks perimenopause!). Keeps me cool in the summer and warm in the winter and it was about a third of the price of my John Lewis down duvet. Nice and heavy and drapes well.

Wool! I have a Woolroom one. Love it. Don't go for fogerty they have a Polypropylene liner so the wool won't regulate your temperature properly.

Maybe I need to go into the shops and give them a feel.
