Tog rating. Pay attention to the tog rating of a comforter. The required tog rating may differ based on your comfort and the weather. A comforter with a 4.5 rating can keep you cool in summer. The more popular ones that work well for spring. autumn and sometimes even for all year use are the ones with the 9.0 and 10.5 tog rating. Duvets with a 13.5 tog rating are great for cold winters. You also have the option of combining two duvets together during winters - the duvets with the 4.5 rating and the ones with the 9.0 rating.
So what about when you are using a duvet? Well. that is where duvet covers come in. Essentially. a duvet cover would take the place of a set of sheets. because the duvet cover can be taken off the and washed as you would a set of sheets. It certainly seems that this would simplify the bed making process. since you would be replacing your top sheet. blanket and comforter with a simple duvet. You need only throw the duvet over the bottom sheet and you are done. Or. if you go the old fashioned way. you would have a duvet on the bottom and a duvet on the top. kind of like a sleeping bag with no zippers.
This development has resulted in the duvet cover of today being as much. if not more. of a fashion statement than just a protective covering. The overall duvet. insert and cover. have many advantages over alternate forms of bed covers. Some of the advantages that have boosted the popularity of duvet covers include The more expensive types of duvet inserts. down and silk comforters. are excellent insulators. making the combination of insert and cover very thin and light weight for the amount of insulation and warmth they provide. Other types of inserts that are now available. though not equal to down and silk comforters. still provide very good bed cover qualities.
