What tog quilt are you using at the moment?

Just wanting a nosey in regards to what tog quilt is the norm for winter. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m partial to a bit of extra warmth .... I just clipped the second part of my down & feather quilt together today resulting in 13 tog. If it gets any colder I may have to get my electric under blanket out too. People think that I’m nuts for requiring this level of warmth ( house is a new house, so it’s not a cold house ) No central heating on overnight. Just wanted to compare to others to see if I am a moany cold arse.

Mine’s 13.5 tog but I’m also wearing cosy pj’s and thick socks and pretty much sleeping on top of dp blush
Think I might need to get the extra blankets out soon too.

I'm too hot in the 10.5tog one. Kids still Have their 4.5 tog ones and ds has also been using the fan. We're in bloody Scotland too!

9 tog, and I'm still roasting by morning. DH has 2 blankets on top though!

8yo DS still has his summer 4 tog on, and even then still frequently strips down to pants. He runs hot I think!

I've only got the summer one on atm, but have been noticing that I am sleeping poorly so it is probably not warm enough
I do have a couple of extra layers....a sheet, and a lightweight quilted cover AND a heavyish throw at th efoot of the bed, also it is a super king so plenty to snuggle in but I do like LOTS of covers and weight so I'll probably swap it when I strip the bed tomorrow.

15 tog all year round. I like the weight of it.

Mine's a 10.5 tog, I sleep in a strappy nightie and also have a window open. I'm in a new house so very well insulated.

TheFaerieQueene Sun 29-Oct-17 22:07:58

4.5 tog. We don’t ever have anything higher on the bed and I still kick off the duvet most nights and just have the sheet over me.
I’m hot stuff wink

13.5 tog here and I'm still freezing!

MirandaWest Sun 29-Oct-17 22:09:33

Ours is 4.5 tog. Have the same one all year round. DH and I don't sleep so well with higher tog duvets

4.5. Will probably change to the 10.5 in November some time. Have never had to clip the two together even in the coldest weather.

Etymology23 Sun 29-Oct-17 22:09:49

9 tog with a blanket and sometimes electric blanket just to warm it up before I get in. I then get too hot overnight and kick the cover off! Anything less and I'm too cold to get to sleep!

Tiddlywinks63 Sun 29-Oct-17 22:11:44

I changed from 9.5 tog to 13 tog yesterday and I'm baking!

LovingLola Sun 29-Oct-17 22:11:47

4.5 tog. Have the window wide open too. DH complains it's like an ice box.

NannyR Sun 29-Oct-17 22:11:51

I use my summer duvet (4.5 tog equivalent) all year round. I just layer up with one or two blankets on top on colder nights.
I would be really uncomfortable using a 13.5 tog.

4. We will switch to 9 if there's a properly cold snap. We have had them as a popper-together pair for about 15 years but never, ever used both together. No overnight heating but our room stays fairly warm from it being on in the evening.

13.5, 2 blankets. Sleeping in pjs, socks and a thermal top. I think my internal thermostat is broken confused

Redglitter Sun 29-Oct-17 22:18:27

I've got a 1 tog duvet on. If it gets really really cold in the winter I might replace it with a 4. Though I haven't in recent years

flyingpigsinclover Sun 29-Oct-17 22:25:04

10 tog very light down one though I usually push it off.

DubiousCredentials Sun 29-Oct-17 22:26:41

4.5 all year round.

Sarahh2014 Sun 29-Oct-17 22:28:54

15 tog grin

lorelairoryemily Sun 29-Oct-17 22:29:14

13.5 all year round and in the winter I add a really heavy bedspread

HoppityHopHop Sun 29-Oct-17 22:41:17

10 tog and still have the fan on!

SleepingBooty Sun 29-Oct-17 22:44:23

4.5 all year round unless it's really cold we might go up to 9.
