Summer Comforters

There are few more frustrating feelings in life than waking up drenched in sweat on a hot summer night and not being able to fall back asleep. If you naturally run hot or prefer to sleep with windows open rather than blasting your air conditioning, there is a multitude of reasons a heavy all-season comforter might not be for you. But lightweight blankets simply don't have the same fluff and coziness as a cloud-like duvet. 

The solution: a lightweight summer comforter. Usually available in either down or down alternative, the best summer duvets usually provide all of the fluff with none of the night sweats. Think it might be time to switch to a lightweight summer comforter that will keep you cool all night long?
