There is a famous proverb, “simplicity is the ultimate beauty”. Then why do we run after several super king bedding elements to make the bedding when we have the super king-size duvets in the house. To keep the minimalism and follow this proverb, we are gifted with super king-size duvets. Here is a complete guide to super king duvet to help you choose the appropriate duvet for your bed.
Fabric & Filling Material of the Duvet
A duvet is a flat bag filled with insulating padding or filling material. These flat bags contribute to the functionality of the duvets, like keeping the duvets in place, absorbing body moisture, and providing comfort. Cotton, Egyptian cotton, linen, velvet, chenille, polyester, microfiber, satin, Pima, percale, and faux silk are widely used for making the duvets. All these fabric materials vary greatly in the properties.
Among all the previously sated fabric materials, non-shedding and anti-pilling fabrics like Egyptian cotton, linen, high-quality chenille, polyester, and cotton blends are preferred for duvets because they provide the exceptional comfort and are super soft & smooth.
Duvets are used for their thermal insulation properties. Padding or filling materials are responsible for the thermal insulation and warmth of the duvets. These filling materials can either be natural or synthetic. Natural padding materials are cotton, wool, duck and goose feathers, and down. These are traditionally used filling materials.
Natural filling materials are heavy and create a thick layer. As for the synthetic filling materials, they include microfibers and hollow fibers, these are anti-allergic and are lightweight. Synthetic paddings are preferred over natural paddings because they are light weighted, budget-friendly, anti-allergic, warm, and breathable.
Tog Rating of the Duvet
Tog rating refers to the thermal insulation of the duvet. It is measured on the tog rating scale where it varies from 1.5 to 15. Based on the tog rating, duvets can be classified as the summer duvets, fall duvets, and the winter duvets.
Summer and Fall Duvets
The tog rating for the summer duvets varies from 3 to 4.5, these are lightweight duvets that are super breathable and allow easy passage of air and do not let you feel extra warm or cozy. Fall duvets are heavier than the summer duvets, they provide moderate warmth and can be used throughout the year provided that your house must have a heating and cooling system. The tog rating for fall duvets varies from 7.5 to 10.5.
Winter and Extra-warm Duvets
The winter duvets are the thickest and the heaviest one, they do not let the air passage and provide you with exceptional thermal insulation. They have a tog rating of 12 to 13.5. Whereas the duvets with a tog rating of 13.5 to 15 on the scale are called the extra-warm duvets. They are suitable only for those areas where it snows throughout the year and the temperature is several degrees below zero. They are extra cozy and warm.
