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.
The warmth of a duvet is therefore directly related to the amount of air that the filling traps, as the air serves as an insulator that assist in keeping the body warm. Keep in mind that the casing will also trap a small amount of air and in effect heat.

The higher the Tog rating, the warmer the Duvet and it's suitablility for use in winter.
