What is meant by ‘Tog rating’?

If you didn’t already know, the Tog rating scale refers to the measure of the thermal insulation of a duvet. Essentially, the higher the Tog rating, the warmer the duvet.

The Tog rating scale runs from 1.0, all the way to 16.5.

So, is 10.5 Tog duvet good for summer?

In our expert opinion, we would argue that 10.5 Togs is too warm for a summer duvet.

10.5 tog duvets are better suited for spring and autumn months, where the weather is neither swelteringly hot nor bitterly cold.

For the summer, we would strongly recommend sticking to a duvet which measures between 1.0 Togs and 4.5 Togs.

Imagine having a thick, heavy duvet, which got you through a freezing cold winter, but waking up on a blisteringly hot July morning. That winter duvet would be no good for the summer season: you would feel overly hot, stuffy and sweaty.

That is why it is wise to switch to a summer duvet when the temperature gets warmer.

Summer Duvet for Moderate Heat

Although British summertime is wonderful, not every night is filled with intense heat. There are many nights when a cold breeze will waft into your home if you keep the windows open. This can make you feel quite chilly at night, even though it’s July or August.

Luckily, we have a duvet to help you cope with such an occasion.

Our 300 Thread Dobby White Summer Duvet (4.5 Tog) is a splendid choice for moderately hot nights.

This gorgeous duvet feels divine on the skin, thanks to the Dobby cloth pattern. The unique woven fabric is luxuriously soft, offering a sophisticated feel and supreme comfort.

The Dobby duvet is so comfortable, that you can skip the bed linen if you prefer, to stay even cooler as you sleep.

What duvet cover material keeps you cool?

When those hot summer nights greet us, the last thing you will want is to feel stifled in the heat, as this will disrupt your sleep.

Experts generally agree that the most cooling duvet covers are made from natural fibres such as cotton, linen, bamboo and eucalyptus.

These fabrics are naturally moisture-wicking, which means they wick sweat away from your body as you sleep. Due to the excellent breathability and airflow in these materials, the fabric will dry faster, so you won’t wake up drenched in a pool of sweat.

Yet, these fabrics are still good conductors of warmth, so they will still provide you with the insulation that you need.

How to hand wash a duvet

  • Check the duvet’s care label to see if hand washing is acceptable.
  • Fill your bath tub with warm water and sprinkle in mild laundry detergent.
  • Place the duvet into the bathwater.
  • Gently knead the duvet with your hands, to clean the dirt away.
  • Don’t scrub or wring the duvet harshly, as this can wrinkle the material or damage the filling inside.
  • Rinse and repeat as necessary.
  • Drain the bathwater and give the duvet a final rinse.
  • Roll and un-roll the duvet to squeeze the excess water out.
  • Allow the duvet to dry fully, outdoors in the fresh air, before using or storing it.
  • As you are drying the duvet, check that the filling has not been re-distributed to different parts of the duvet.
