The weather outside may be frightful, and baby it may be cold outside, but one thing those two classic festive songs forgot to mention is that you can stay toasty and warm even as temperatures drop. That is, if you know how to layer a bed for winter, of course.

We’ve talked before about the best bedding to keep you cool in summer, and now it’s time for the best bedding to keep you warm in winter.

From winter quilts to winter bed sheets, bed toppers to blankets, these are all the essentials you need for the cosiest winter bed ever. Get ready to hibernate; just make sure to bring a good book, hot choccie, and a queued up Netflix with you — you may never leave.

If you’ve ever wanted to feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, then a topper or underlay is for you. Not only do they bring new life to a tired mattress, but they can also help provide warmth — the best bedding for winter starts from the foundations.

Wool, along with feather and down, are two fibres we recommend when it comes to winter bedding. It’s safe to say wool is renowned for being great for winter — think of all those wool jumpers, coats and scarves — due to its insulating properties. 

It’s why our Deluxe Wool Underlay makes for a great option for winter, with one side being soft wool fleece, crafted from 100% Australian wool fleece. And if you picked up on the “one side” of it all, yep, the other side can be used for summer — bedding that keeps you comfortable, year round.

Down is renowned for the warmth it provides in particularly frigid temperatures (think down jackets), and when combined with feathers keeps you warm and comfortable. Oh, and it’s super soft — as is our Ultimate Dream Feather & Down Bed Topper.

And if you’re a sensitive sleeper, we have winter topper offerings for you too. The Deluxe Dream Bed Topper is a feather and down alternative, that still provides softness and luxury. 

When it comes to the best bed sheets for winter, there’s no looking past flannelette. A classic winter staple, these winter bed sheets are crafted from soft woven cotton yarn, that’s brushed for an incredibly soft feel. Insulating, they’re the perfect partner for winter — while remaining breathable.

For those who are looking for flannelette in a single shade, our Flannelette Sheet Set is ideal. A classic offering, choose from a variety of colours to suit your already existing bedroom aesthetic, while adding next to skin softness and warmth. 

Fans of florals will appreciate Cyrah, which features contemporary blooms designed by Sheridan’s in-house artists. Looking to match your quilt cover to your sheet set? Thomsen, with its bold buffalo check, answers all your questions. Available in both a sheet set and quilt cover set, you’ll be cosy all winter long.

As Game of Thrones said, winter is coming. And what’s more of a sign that it is than huddling up under your quilt, desperate for more warmth? Or, if it gets really tough — well, the tough get to swaddling themselves in their quilt like a giant burrito, regardless of the time of day. 

Luckily for you, we have a range of quilts that are particularly well suited for winter, crafted from some of our favourite winter fibres — feather and down, and wool. There’s no huddling or craving extra warmth under these offerings; these best quilts for winter help provide all the warmth you need.

Cosy up underneath the Pure Indulgence 85/15 White Goose Down & Feather Quilt; filled with 85% white goose down, and 15% white goose feather. The luxurious down count ensures warm insulation, and is super soft to sleep underneath. For an even warmer option, our other Pure Indulgence Quilt contains 95% white goose down, and 5% white goose feather — but it's still very lightweight.

Living in a cold climate? With the Deluxe Australian Wool Super Warm Quilt — well, the name gives it away upfront; it’s one of our warmest quilts for winter, and boasts a heavy weight. This quilt is super warm, but still breathable — filled with 100% Australian wool.

When it comes to how to keep your bed warm in winter, you can’t look past blankets. Whether tucked between your flat sheet and quilt, or layered on top of your winter bedding as a throw, they’re the perfect finishing touch for your best winter bedding.

If you like having a blanket layered between your bedding, the Classic Wool Blanket is just that — a classic. A staple for winter, and crafted with Australian wool, it’s breathable and insulating. Available in two shades, it’s also stylish enough to be layered on the foot of your bed.

Another winter bed blanket that’s easy to style is the Clara Wool Blanket (you can figure out what it’s crafted with). A contemporary take on a classic, it features a subtle contrast pattern, with hints of charcoal throughout. The brushed yarn means it's super soft against the skin; the perfect additional layer.
