CAn you buy a heavy Feel medium tog duvet?

I don't see why not. Try the cheaper end of the market: they will have synthetic fillings which are less efficient TOG-per-kg-wise. The best insulators are feathers or down, which are mostly air.

We bought, or more accurately SWMBO bought and I paid for, a very heavy linen set of bedding fairly recently. It weighs a ton but being linen its very breathable and so doesn't make you hot.

These ones were silly money, and linen may not be the texture that everyone aims for, but I am sure others must make a more sensibly priced version. It would certainly achieve the objective of heavy weight but not hot covering if you put a light summer tog duvet in it

I now use a wool one. Actually because they are supposed to regulate your temperature. I can get very hot in bed!
Got it from baavet in their bargain box (bit cheaper). Been very pleased with it and it actually has a bit of weight to it, which sounds like it might suit you.

Another vote for wool here. I bought a Fogarty one from Dunelm and it is great at regulating temperature.

Down duvets all have a decent weight to them. Mine is 4.5+8. Removed the 8 part and it still feels snug, although I mostly sleep without one in the warmer weather.

TOGs: he has a lightweight summer one (4.5 TOG) and a heavier weight 8 TOG (think Autumn). Together they combine to provide a 12.5 TOG winter duvet.

This.
Except I meant 4.5 + 9.
They button together. You can then use 13.5, 9 or 4.5 depending on weather.

I did think 12.5 was an odd TOG number for a winter duvet... :thumbsup:

12.5, 13.5 I'd die under either, we have a light Wool duvet whatever that is 4-6 tog equivalent and that's on in the coldest months, we have a throw over on at the moment and I am on top of that as it's too warm under it, sure it's this house it's too damn well insulated.
