What is Tog?
Duvets and Quilts work by trapping warm air, and the higher the tog rating, the more warmth the duvet will provide. The table below will help you decide which tog rating is right for you.
||4.5 + 9.0 or 4.5 + 10.5|

– This Pure Siberian down Emperor Size. The 100% down quality is truly exceptional - available up to 15 togs.
Siberian Down is known for its unique properties - we are often asked to explain which quality of pure down is better, We consider this quality of Pure Siberian Down to be the very best - only the finest down is used and certified 100% pure Siberian.
Exceptionally light, the fill power of 650 meaning that the duvet is naturally lofty and fluffy. With such high quality filling, your duvet will maintain it's attributes for many years.
The casing is a specially sourced 500 thread count cotton cambric - manufactured in Germany to the highest standard the touch is extra soft. Tightly woven with fine yarns, the fabric is both highly down proof and hard wearing. Often the end of a duvet's life is due to wear in the casing - this has been taken into account in sourcing from one of Europe's top weavers (down cambric weaving is highly advanced in Germany - a tradition of top quality down filled duvets ensures the highest standards are met).
The construction of the casing is, as one would expect, to the highest standard - cassette boxes made with baffle walls ensure filling is safely contained and cannot move around the duvet. Cheaper duvets may be stitched through from top to bottom - this leads to 'cold spots' where the top and bottom meet without any filling.

What is Siberian/Hungarian Goose Down and how do they differ?
Genuine Siberian Goose Down is the world’s finest filling. It comes from a country with sub-zero temperatures so its warmth retention is exceptional. It is also finer, lighter, and softer than any other Goose Down. Our luxury duvets are filled with 100% genuine Siberian Goose down. To add weight and shape they are finished with luxurious Jacquard cotton and stitched in a box construction to prevent the filling from redistributing.
Siberian Goose down is more thermal than Hungarian down, as Siberian geese come from a colder region of the world, thus making their down more thermal, so a siberian down duvet can achieve the same tog rating as Hungarian but with a slightly lesser fill, thus making it lighter yet still achieving the same tog rating
Definition: Tog Rating
Tog ratings are really only used in the UK. The fabric of a typical man's suit has a thermal resistance of around 0.1 m2K/W. This measurement was simplified for general use and people called it "one tog".
The tog was invented by workers at the Shirley Institute, Manchester, in the 1940s. The name comes from the informal word "togs" for clothing. Tog values are used to measure the potential warmth of many products, not just duvets.
Note that the tog rating does not necessarily relate directly to the thickness of the duvet. Different materials have different thermal resistance characteristics and different thicknesses will be required to achieve the same tog rating.
Our Hungarian duvets have a 400 thread count covers & our Siberian duvets have a 500 thread count covers. The higher the thread count cover the less filling is required to achieve the same tog rating
Most hotels would use a 10.5TOG duvet and this Tog Rating can be achieved by using various fillings. If pure Goose down is used the duvet is lighter as you require less filling to achieve the rating. If down & feather then more filling would be required and if just feathers then the duvet becomes very heavy indeed.
