Duvet Tog Weights

A duvet's tog rating relates to its warmth (but not its weight,which depends on filling). The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet, with 2.5 tog or 4.5 tog perfect for spring and summer and 10.5 tog and 13.5 tog ideal for autumn and winter. Of course some of us feel naturally warmer or colder than others,so buying the right tog weight is an individual choice. 

If you want flexibility and versatility, then we have the perfect solution. You can combine our 2.5 tog super lightweight duvet in the same duvet cover with a 4.5 tog or 10.5 tog to increase your warmth in the cooler seasons.
