When your winter bed is freshly made , it is puffed and fluffed and ready for you to snuggle down . This doesn't mean the bed is overly soft . That depends on your mattress . What a winter bed allows is a few inches of loft in which the shape of your body forms...the secret to the best night's sleep .
Once you have prepared for bed and have made your best entry , get into your normal sleeping position . Enjoy the sinking experience that ensues . At the end of the sinking wriggle and rock a bit to form a trough shape in the fibre/feather bed that conforms to all your bulges and divots perfectly . The unformed loft will rise around you , enveloping your body and warming to the perfect temperature ...that of you .
All night , the heat you produce is saved and returned from the loft in a continuous cycling . This bed can be very warm if you are , so only a sheet and blanket over top will be enough to maintain your comfort .
While you nestle into your winter bed and outside temperatures drop , sleep creeps gently upon you . As my husband says " It makes you want to suck your thumb ." That says it all .
Goodnight , Sweetheart of mine ! Sleep well .
