About The Suggested Temperature Ranges

A Word about suggested temperature ranges:  If you are a "Warm Sleeper", you should select a comforter based on the temperature of your bedroom, and the lower end of our temperature ranges.  For example, if you are a warm sleeper and your bedroom temperature is 60° to 65°, the Ultra Light would be a good choice.


Alternatively, if you are a "Cold Sleeper" and your bedroom temperature is 60° to 65°, the Light Warmth or the Winter Warmth would be a good choice.


An "Average Sleeper", that is, a person that does not overheat or get too cold, with a bedroom temperature of 60° to 65°,  would be comfortable with the Ultra Light, Light or Winter Warmth.  Your choice would depend on the amount of warmth that you wanted your comforter to provide.


We can add more down to your comforter, but we cannot remove it. So if you are a warm sleeper or are concerned about the comforter being too warm, a good rule of thumb is to select a weight that is one weight lighter than you think will keep you comfortable.


If, within 1 year of your purchase, you decide that you would like more down added, we only charge for the cost of the down and return shipping. Please see our down comforter Perfect Fill™ Service for more details.

What is TOG?

TOG is a measurement of Thermal Resistance. This system is used in Europe to test and quantify the warmth level of a duvet (down comforter) and other textiles.

TOG Values range from 1.5 tog (Ultra Light) to 16.5 (Ultra Warm).  TOG values do not take the use of duvet covers or pajamas/sleepwear into account. These things, the "breathability" and lightness or heaviness of your duvet cover and whether you sleep naked or with P. J.'s, can make a huge difference in your experience of warmth. 

Down Comforter Warmth & "Fill Power"

About Fill Power and Warmth: Generally speaking, the higher the fill power (quality of goose down), the better. A higher quality goose down will provide a wider "comfort range". In other words, a higher quality down will keep you warmer when it is cold and cooler when it is warm, compared to a lower fill power.


Warmth Level & Comforter Size

Our down comforters are available in a wide range of sizes; German (individual size), Twin, Queen, King & Super King sizes. The amount of down used for each warmth level will vary depending on the size of the comforter.   You can use our Comforter Wizard to find and compare all of our down comforters, by Size, Warmth Level, type of goose down, and fabric.
