TOG ratings in duvets

Postby Fenton » Fri Aug 10, 2007 5:08 pm

Would anybody possibly know the conversion table of the standard 'warmth' measurements in TOGs into the European system of x grammes weight of the duvet. I believe, for example, a UK/USA/Australian rated 4.5 TOG summer weight duvet is 100 grm. I would be extremely grateful for any help.

Here in the UK, the warmth of a down duvet or a microfibre duvet, is measured in togs as you say. However, silk duvets don't have tog ratings but are sold based on the weight of the duvet. This silk duvet is converted as follows: a 200g being the equivalent of a 4 tog duvet and a 400g silk duvet is the equivalent of a 8 tog duvet.
