How to choose your Duvet according to Tog rating ...

A GUIDE TO MAKING AN INFORMED DUVET SELECTION

Tog rating is a measure of warmth of a Duvet and is determined by placing the Duvet onto a surface over a heated plate ( to mimic body heat ) and the amount of heat that escapes from the duvet during this process is measured.

And would you believe me that more often than not, the response is, not even once a year. Yes, you heard right……not even once a year. Can you imagine sleeping under a duvet that hasn’t been washed for that long? Of course, keep in mind that this exact same question applies to your home.
