In the olden days, a good duvet meant a heavy duvet. It was a simple recipe. But today’s duvets are not only excellent at warming – they’re also very light. The best example of this is our innovative Paradies Microfill®, a contemporary fibre filling for extremely light duvets which provides an ideal and revitalising sleeping climate. Duvets with this filling are especially light and thin, but still provide the warmth for which Paradies is renowned. The priority when developing these duvets was not volume, but achieving the lightest possible weight.
The secret of Paradies Microfill® lies in the especially fine fibres, between which the same amount of air is enclosed as with Paradies Fill® fibres. Unlike other light duvets with fine fibre fillings, the Paradies Microfill® fleece doesn’t become lumpy and thus retains its cosy puff and breathable qualities. Thanks to their reduced volume, Paradies Microfill® duvets are easy to wash in domestic washing machines.

Comparison test with an infrared camera
The pictures from the infrared camera provide the proof: Even though the Paradies Microfill® duvet is approximately 40% lighter than the high-quality textile fibre duvet, it still keeps you lovely and warm.
The pictures reveal the distributions of temperature across surfaces and objects. The warmest part of the image shows up as white (in this case: the head of the sleeping person), the intermediate temperatures are indicated by shades of yellow and red, and the colder parts of the image appear as blue shades.
For the purpose of our comparison test, we asked the same person to sleep once under a Paradies Microfill® duvet and then under a high-quality textile fibre duvet instead. The test clearly shows that – after a little while – the heat generated by the sleeping person is only able to escape slightly at the quilting seams in the case of both duvets. This is completely normal and helps to regulate the temperature under the covers.
Thermal insulation comparison test
Studies by an independent research institute confirm that Paradies Microfill® offers the best thermal insulation performance in relation to the weight of the filling. This high level of efficiency is the key to the amazingly lightweight design of the Microfill® duvet when compared to standard textile fibre bedding.
