How to choose the right duvet? A duvet buying guide.
Your duvet cocoons you in a snug, comfy embrace that ensures restful nights. When it comes to duvets, there are a plethora of choices based on your needs: tog rating, filling type, seasonality, and size.

Choosing the right duvet tog rating
To measure the warmth of a duvet, you must consider its tog rating. This system is designed exclusively for this type of bedding, and it indicates how warm a particular duvet will be when used on your bed.

When it comes to choosing the right tog duvet for your bedroom, there are some factors you should consider. First and foremost, what type of climate do you live in? In warmer climates, a lighter-weight duvet with a lower tog rating is ideal; whereas in colder climates, a heavier-weight duvet with a higher tog rating is best.

At Royfort, we provide customers with a selection of duvets in 4.5, 10.5, and 13.5 tog - and let's dive into the advantages they each offer.

4.5 Tog Duvets
This lighter-weight duvet is perfect for summer months and warmer climates, offering a light breathable layer that won't cause you to overheat during the night.

10.5 Tog Duvets
The 10.5 tog duvet provides an ideal balance of warmth and comfort all year round, making it well suited for those who live in a mild climate or want a single all-season bedding solution.

13.5 Tog Duvets
This heavier-weight duvet is designed for those living in colder climates, providing extra insulation during winter months. It helps keep you warm when temperatures dip and can even be paired with one of our 4.5 tog blankets if needed.

When it comes to deciding on the seasonality of your bedroom, there are different duvet thicknesses for each time of year. A 4.5 tog duvet is generally best suited for summer or warm climates, while a 13.5 tog duvet is usually most appropriate for colder regions with chilly winters.

Whereas all-season (10.5) tog duvets are more versatile and can be used at any temperature. The right tog duvet is essential for ensuring restful nights of sleep - so choose wisely! With this guide, you should now have all the information you need to pick the perfect tog for you.


When it comes to choosing your duvet, the filling is an important factor. Duvets come in two main types: down-filled and synthetic fillings. Within these broad categories are several different options for you to explore as well! It's important to note that different types of fillings have varying levels of warmth and insulation. Discover the extraordinary advantages of each type of filling below.

The benefits of a down duvet
Down duvets are filled with the natural, lightweight, and fluffy feathers of ducks or geese. They provide a luxurious feel and high levels of warmth and insulation - perfect for those cold winter nights.

The benefits of synthetic filling
Synthetic fillings are more affordable than down-filled duvets yet still provide good insulating abilities. They come in a range of materials like microfibre, hollow fibre, and silk - all offering unique properties to suit different preferences.

Royfort is proud to offer an exquisite down duvet and PrimaLoft synthetic duvet. Our luxurious down duvet option features European goose down that is laid across a baffle box construction, resulting in evenly distributed fill for optimal warmth. Boasting 50% cotton and 50% Tencel, the shell feels irresistibly luxurious and velvety to the touch. Not only does the weave provide a barrier to mites, but it also promises a pleasant and healthy slumber free from allergens.

Our PrimaLoft duvet is a synthetic option that mimics the tenderness of down and was crafted for those who seek an alternative. It's constructed with breathability and thermal regulation in mind, which are rare to find in microfiber products. Our filling is made out of recycled PET bottles-- each plastic bottle is collected, shredded, and melted into microscopic fibers using an innovative process!


In addition to the tog rating and filling aspects listed above, you should also think about the size and shape of your bed when selecting a tog duvet. Single beds should typically choose single-sized duvets, while double beds need double-sized duvets. However, if you plan to use the same bedding on different sizes of beds, opt for an oversized duvet so it can fit all sizes comfortably. Our standard UK sizes are single (140cm x 200cm), double (200cm x 200cm), king (225cm x 220cm), super king (260cm x 220cm) and emperor (290cm x 235cm).

Taking all essential factors into consideration, you can easily identify the appropriate tog and filling for your duvet that guarantees a comfortable sleeping environment according to your individual preferences.
