Is 13.5 Tog a Summer Duvet?
Did you know that the average person is losing around 44 hours of sleep per year, due to hot nighttime temperatures across the globe?
This shows how important it is to choose the right bedding according to the weather. The last thing you want is to struggle during boiling hot or bitingly cold nights.
Since we humans spend approximately a third of our lives asleep, we at Bedding Comfort Store are big advocates of choosing better bedding to improve the quality of one’s sleep.
In this article, we will explore the question, ‘is 13.5 tog a summer duvet?’, which we hope you find useful.
What does ‘Tog’ mean?
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.
Is 13.5 tog a summer duvet?
So, is 13.5 tog a summer duvet? No, a 13.5 tog duvet is not classed as a summer duvet.
Any duvet measuring between 13.5 to 16.5 togs is on the highest end of the tog scale rating.
This means that a 13.5 tog duvet is an excellent choice to get you through the winter season.
Here at Bedding Comfort Store, we offer a Winter Duvet collection, which offers complete comfort during the colder months. Ranging from 13.5 togs to 15 togs, our winter duvets are wonderfully warm and soft on the skin, without feeling heavy and cumbersome.

Which duvets are best for summer?
Who doesn’t love the return of longer daylight hours and warmer weather?
It is lovely to bask in the glorious sunshine and stock up on the cold drinks, but many of us feel agitated when we can’t sleep well at night during the summers.
That is why it is a great idea to switch out your duvet for a summer duvet instead.
Summer duvets are lightweight, airy, and super breathable- because let’s face it, we all sweat a little bit during those hot, sweltering nights.
The summer of 2022 saw record-breaking temperatures as high as 40.3C in the UK, and we will continue to see heatwave weather like this in coming years. So, it is important to upgrade your bedding when those sweltering hot nights arrive, to keep yourself cool and safe during extreme weather patterns.
For the summer season, we recommend choosing a duvet between 1.0 to 4.5 togs, to get you through those hot nights, and you won’t overheat or feel stuffy. If you need additional warmth, layer a blanket on top, which can be easily removed if you don’t need it.
Ranging from 1.0 to 4.5 Tog, our Summer Duvets will keep you cool during those muggy nights, without compromising on the coverage you still need for sleep. Our summer duvets are also hypoallergenic, which means allergy sufferers can beat hay fever and sleep comfortably all summer long.
