About Tog Ratings:
Our down filled duvets are given tog ratings; the higher the tog, the warmer the duvet.
What tog should I choose? It depends on how warm your bedroom is and how warm a person you are, also on the warmth of your mattress and the thickness of your duvet cover.
4.5-6 tog is appropriate for summer use and for a warmer blooded person throughout most of the year. A good choice to use with our memory foam and Waterlattex mattresses. Add a quilted bedspread and blankets on the coldest nights.
9-10.5 tog down filled duvets are perfect for a cooler room throughout the year. Add a quilted bedspread on the coldest nights.
13.5 tog duvets suit a cold bedroom and cold winters. Although this is the most frequently purchased tog rating, for many people (for much of the time) it may well be too warm, especially during milder winters.
All Season duvets combine a 3 tog and 9 tog duvet with the option to clip them together for use in winter (resulting in the feel of a 12 tog duvet). Use the 9 tog alone in spring and autumn, use the 3 tog duvet alone in the summer. This is your most flexible, luxury option.
– Prevent any damage from the product and to ensure proper re-fluffing after washing / drying, the washing machine and/or the tumble dryer should be filled up with maximum 25% of its total loading-capacity!
– The main washing should be done at a temperature of 40°C in a “gentle washing” modus (less motion / much relaxation) for approx. 15-20 minutes. Afterwards rinse 4 times without any detergents, each rinsing cycle with a duration of approx. 5 minutes. The third and fourth cycle should be done with a high water level. After completion of the fourth cycle, spin the product at high rotation speed.
– Only mild detergents are to be used and also the dosage should be kept to a minimum (max. 30 cubic-centimetres per kilogram). After washing, the detergents have to be rinsed out completely, as otherwise the filling material might stick together during the drying process.
– To ensure best possible results, the drying must be executed very cautiously, which means that they must NOT be dried at a temperature exceeding 60°C. The drum of the dryer has to oscillate (the direction of rotation has to change randomly) during the drying process. It is of high importance to carefully attend to these guidelines as any deviation could have a highly negative impact on the products (shrinkage, but also in regards to the spreading ability of the filling)!
