What you need to know about silk duvets-Tog Ratings

elle silk

As of yet there is no official British Standards tog rating for silk duvets. This leaves the market in a bit of turmoil as some suppliers may recommend one thing, and others something completely different. The comparative tog rating system we have seen is by measuring grams of silk per square meter. A duvet filled with 250gsm silk will be the equivalent of a 2-4 tog. A duvet filled with 400gsm will be the equivalent of a 7-9 tog, and a duvet filled with 600gsm will be the equivalent tog a 10-13 tog. It is worth pointing out that many suppliers offer a “combination duvet” which is a 250 and 400gsm duvet that fasten together. There are some good deals to be had when a discount is offered for the purchase of a combination set. For a good deal on combination duvets take a look at a company called ellesilk. www.ellesilk.com
