The Ultimate Tog Rating Guide: What Tog Should You Choose for Winter?

The Ultimate Tog Rating Guide: What Tog Should You Choose for Winter?

Posted by Cuddledown ‍ on

As the colder months draw in, understanding the right tog rating for your winter bedding becomes crucial. If you find yourself asking, "What tog should I choose for winter?" you're not alone.

 

Our tog rating guide breaks down tog ratings to ensure your nights are both snug and comfortable.


What Are Tog Ratings?

Tog ratings are a measure of a textile's thermal resistance or warmth. In simpler terms, they indicate how effective a duvet or comforter is at trapping heat. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the bedding. For colder seasons like winter, a higher tog rating is generally recommended.

 

The Importance of Tog Ratings for Winter Bedding

In winter, keeping warm and comfortable during those chilly nights is crucial. Selecting the right tog rating ensures you stay cozy without overheating. It's all about striking the perfect balance between warmth and breathability.

 

How to Select the Perfect Winter Duvet Tog Rating

 

Selecting the ideal tog rating for your winter bedding depends on several factors:

1. Consider Your Bedroom's Temperature

Consider the average room temperature where you sleep. If your bedroom tends to get colder during winter, you'll want a higher tog rating.

2. Personal Preference

Your comfort level plays a significant role. Some people prefer extra warmth, while others like to stay cooler while sleeping.

3. Seasonal Variations

If you experience drastic temperature fluctuations during winter, you might opt for layered bedding, allowing you to adjust as needed.

4. Material

The material of your bedding matters too. Natural materials like down and feather duvets tend to have higher tog ratings for their exceptional insulation.

 

Understanding Different Tog Ratings

Tog ratings typically range from 1 (lightweight) to 15 (extra warm). Here's a breakdown of what each duvet tog rating rating means:

  • 1 to 4.5 Tog: Ideal for summer or hot sleepers.
  • 7.5 to 10.5 Tog: Suitable for year-round use in the UK.
  • 12 to 15 Tog: Perfect for the coldest winter nights.
