I use an alpaca doona which is light and very warm in winter, but not so hot in summer!
I also have a home knitted - by me - fabulous blanket on the bottom of my bed.
Oh, and of course I have my electric blanket which is on just before I go to bed, and then off when I get into the bed!
We have always had doonas as my parents were European and that is all they had.

Some people might think it's overkill, but I have a doona and a blanket AND I've been known to put an extra doona on in really cold weather, but it is only a light doona.
However, I'm not sure what the temps are where everyone else is, but our winter mornings were often below -5
I only now use for us, those light weight very fluffy cosy velvatine blankets they started selling about 7 years ago.

When I wash one, it is nearly dry, when taking out of the washing machine, they can be washed any season, and say a hot day will be totally dry in 10 mins.

In winter, as long as it is not raining, they dry in say 1 hour on the line....Can be put in the dryer, for say 10 mins totally dry!

Wonderful to touch, so cosy and soft.
I have a doona, as it is light and fluffy, but keeps me toasty warm. Blankets are too heavy on my body and make me too hot in bed !!! Doonas have a cushion of air around me, and breathe well. No sweaty sheets and blankets here !!! Fresh glorious air, and completely natural.
During the last two winters here in Nth Qld, I have not needed any extra covering for warmth at night as it simply has not been at all chilly!! I used to have a light doona on my bed in winter, but that was at least 3 years ago!
I don't need one. Winter is the only time I put my cotton bedspread on. Comes off at the first sign of warmth. I sleep only with sheets normally and my windows are open 24/7 buf I've full length floor to ceiling shutters so that insulates me somewhat and the spaces between each slat are open.

Always a goose down doona. All the warmth without the weight.
Yes to all and anything else I can get my hands on. I have also invested in an electric blanket - I'm a cold froggy :(

We used to have an electric blanket, then my mother gave us 2 duck down donnas she hd made for us, by a Chinese man in Paddington. We had them dry cleaned once, & didn't go to collect them for about 3 months, because we were waiting for winter to roll around again, so we wouldn't have to store them! When we did go to collect them from the drycleaners, 1 of them wasn't our 1! So we now have 1 of ours & 1 of someone else's, who has our 1. Luckily, the other 1 is also duck down. Our daughters both had wool blankets to match their bedroom colours.
