What is Loft?


Hi Bodile, Tog is a warmth rating. You can compare tog ratings to our warmth ratings of Summer, Regular, All Season and Winter.
Loft is a measure of the insulating properties of down, but loft alone doesn’t tell you the warmth of a product. You have to look at both loft and fill weight to determine that. For example, a low loft down may not be super warm per ounce, but if you put lots of it into a duvet, you can create a very warm product! Tog ratings and our warmth ratings take into account both loft and fill weight.

Could you tell me how the Canadian loft value compares to the UK tog value.

I’m glad to read that last comment on the same duvet I bought. Mostly because it was so light, and I haven’t used it yet so I’m worried it won’t be warm enough. But when I wrap it around me just because it’s light doesn’t mean it’s not warm! It’s nice and warm.
So I think I’m going to put it on my bed now instead of waiting till fall!
But I’ve had a great night sleep every night since I got my 850 loft pillow! That was money well spent. I’m thinking I’m gonna buy another one but at 550 loft for a pillow that way it’s a little firmer.

I love my pillow! Been having great sleeps ever since I got it. Haven’t used my duvet yet. Waiting till fall. Still using my old duvet. Getting my moneys worth out of it. Lol

We purchased a Hutterite 850 loft-500 duvet(all season) . I was worried realizing it was so light.
We purposely sleep in a cool room temperature.
It was fantastic. The bedroom was at 15c or 59F. The duvet kept us warm the entire night.
We don’t even wear Chanel no 5 to sleep.
Thank you.
