When you're in the market for a new duvet, understanding your specific needs is crucial. Finding the perfect duvet can be a daunting task, but fear not, as we're here to provide you with a comprehensive duvet tog guide to help you make the right choice.


Deciphering The Tog Rating: What Does Tog Mean?

Contrary to common belief, the Tog rating isn't an indicator of a duvet's thickness or quality. Rather, it's a measure used to gauge the thermal insulation capacity of a material. In simpler terms, it tells you how warm a duvet is. The rule of thumb is straightforward: the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the duvet. However, to truly grasp which duvet suits your needs, let's delve deeper. At Fine Bedding Company, our duvets range from 4.5 Tog to 13.5 Tog.


4.5 Tog Duvet: Ideal For Summer 

Summer nights call for a lighter duvet since higher temperatures mean less insulation is required. The perfect choice for this season is the 4.5 Tog duvet. A handy way to remember this is: as temperatures rise, go for a lower Tog rating. Most of our duvets come in 4.5 Tog options, but our Breathe Duvet stands out for summer use. It incorporates Modal, a natural fibre derived from wood pulp, which helps regulate temperature by wicking away moisture, keeping you cool on hot summer nights. However, if you tend to get chilly, even in summer, consider a 7 Tog duvet for added warmth.

Selecting The Right Tog Rating For Spring And Autumn: 7 or 10.5 Tog

Spring and autumn bring cooler temperatures, but it's not quite freezing yet. During these transitional seasons, a duvet with a Tog rating of either 7 or 10.5 is your best bet, depending on your susceptibility to cold. If you tend to run warm, a 7 Tog duvet should suffice.

Our Spundown Duvet, available in 7 Tog, is both lightweight and plush, retaining its shape after each wash.

Alternatively, our Boutique Silk Duvet, with a 10.5 Tog rating, offers luxurious comfort and is easy to clean, making it ideal for those who tend to sweat on warmer nights.


13.5 Tog Duvet: Embrace The Winter Chill

As winter approaches and the temperature drops, it's time to opt for a higher Tog rating. A 13.5 Tog duvet will keep you cozy during the coldest months. However, if you're not particularly sensitive to the cold, a 10.5 Tog duvet can also provide ample warmth. The choice ultimately depends on your personal preference. There's nothing quite like snuggling under a warm duvet after a chilly day.


The 4 Seasons Duvet

For those seeking a versatile option that can be used year-round, the 4 seasons duvet is the way to go. This duvet consists of a 9 Tog and a 4.5 Tog duvet, which can be combined to create a toasty 13.5 Tog duvet for winter. Purchasing the entire set at once can save you money on your duvet purchase. Our Spundown Duvet is available in the 4 seasons warmth variant. If nighttime sweating is a concern, the Breathe Duvet is an innovative choice as it effectively regulates temperature.
