How tog works?
This a method of measuring the
level of temperature produced by any duvet. Thermal resistance
of duvet is called as a tog rating. It is mainly used in United
Kingdom in order to measure the warmth of a duvet. Higher the
tog rating represents the warmth of the duvet. If any duvet
shows tog rating of 15, it would be more likely be peak winter
season. Proportionally 4.5tog can be use in the mild day’s

1- Fibre Content:
Bedding can be made from natural fibres, synthetic fibres, or
blends. Natural fibres, such as cotton or silk have inherent
irregularities and subtleties which contribute to the natural
beauty of luxury bedding. Their primary advantage of absorbency
and porosity, makes natural fibre bed linens responsive to
changes in temperature and humidity, thus ensuring maximum sleep
2- Cotton Quality:
The quality of cotton used in bedding ranges from short staple
to extra long staple (up to 1.7"), which affects the product's
appearance, durability and price. The finest European luxury
bedding is woven of extra long staple, combed Egyptian cotton.
3- Thread Count & Yarn Count:
Thread count is probably the most advertised attribute for bed
linens, yet it is not the only indicator of true quality. Thread
count is the number of yarns in a square inch of fabric. In
general, the higher the thread counts the lighter, more supple,
and durable the fabric. However, knowing the quality of the
cotton fibres is more important than just the thread count.
4- Weave of Fabric:
The type of weave used in the fabric for bedding plays an
integral part in the durability and quality of the finished
product. Fabric weave is produced by the interlacing of yarns.
The basic fabric weaves used in bedding are plain and sateen.
In a plain weave each yarn alternately crosses over and under
another, to produce a strong even fabric.
A sateen weave is used to produce smooth, lustrous, high thread
count bedding with a thick close texture. In this weave one yarn
passes over four to eight alternate yarns in a staggered
pattern. The number of yarns exposed on the surface of the
fabric gives sateen it's characteristic sheen.
