Best Buy - Smartsilk Duvet and Pillow set $99.99 to $199.99

From $99 Twin to $199.99 Queen, looks like a premium duvet/pillow based on this review.

It is also on sale at Costco but from $165 to $289. FS/BB are about 35% cheaper than Costco sale price.

I assume it is silk or mixture of silk + other natural materials like cotton. Pure silk duvet is ridiculous expensive. If it is 100% silk with good fill, that's a lava hot deal

A bit more information about properties of silk as insulation material, it supposed to keep you cool in Summer, while warm in Winter. I used silk duvet when I was a kid, I remembered the duvet feels very cold at the beginning but once it is warmed up by body heat, it remains very warm for whole night. I guess that's why I disliked to go to bed but refuse to wake up in the morning ;-)

If what op says about these being the same as the Costco ones (and they do have the same quilted look), then these are 100% silk. I have one from Costco at home and love it. I had an earlier silk quilt from China but it wasn't quilted and the quilting makes a big difference. No clumping! Finally, the price for a King at Costco is about $230 if I remember correctly and it doesn't come with the pillows like this deal at Bestbuy. I'm getting one for a future present.

Best buy's website says the duvet is 100% silk filled and the pillows are a mixture of silk and polyester.

Is this warm enough for winter or is it more of a spring/fall duvet?

I just realize the Costco links above are from Costco USA, these are even higher in Costco Canada website. When did you purchased yours for $230? You are not talking about the silk blend in this one right?

chat with friends who just bought a pure silk quilt from China, she said if these duvets have a decent fill rate (sold by weight in China), the price is really lava hot. As a side benefit, sine it uses cotton exterior, it may not feel as "cold" prior the warm-up stage.

@lonelydriver, it depends. People in Canada are accustomed to down or down-alternative duvets. Silk duvets will definitely feel cold unless you have a electric heated mattress pad to pre-heat the duvet, so many will complain this is not warm enough for Winter use, but it is actually surprisingly warm after it is warm-up. I lived in HK when I was a kid and there was/is no heat in winter, it is not unusal for room temperature to fall below16C and obviously I survived the many winters with silk duvet.

Unfortunately no, I checked FS/BB/Costco and there is none on display, it is an online only item. Since Smartsilk is certified by Asthma Society of Canada and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and is significant cheaper than Costco price, I figured can't go wrong, I ordered a twin and a queen.

Looks interesting...
Duvet's at ikea are roughly 100 bucks but toss in 2 pillows that may or may not be good and it's not that bad a deal.

I guess dave doesn't expect non-electronics stuff from Bestbuy. Smartsilk t is definitely target as a premium product. Whether it is a true premium silk product or a fake silk-like natural material, I will find out when I receive mine.

While I consider myself as an Ikea fan, I wouldn't touch their duvet and mattress since I have no clue what kind of recycled or "engineered" materials they use in their duvet.
