and when did you buy a new one?
Need to buy a new duvet and pillows.
Tin duvet is going strong, was purchased last year and there is plenty of life in it yet.
I need 4 new pillows though as 4/6 of my current ones are pretty much dead.
So I assume its YEARS old. Its very rank.
You have one thin and one thick? You should have bought one of those duvets where its 2 duvets clipped together and together they are a thick winter one and apart they are a thicker one and a thin one for summer
The thick one is there for the benefit of my girlfriend and for the rare nights when it is exceptionally cold.
10.5 tog. Haven't used it but it's from Primark so my expectations are modeat.
Seems moderate. 13.5 is too much tog. 4.5 is too little tog.
that can be fastened together for a 13.5.
I invariably find the full 13.5 too hot even in the depths of winter.
when it's cold or hot etc
does ANYONE know their Tog rating?
There's a thread in itself, questions that begin `Apart from Theo...`
10.5 he's got.
You have to chose your tog when buying a duvet. The more togs, the thicker it is.
There was no Qs on the old fashioned printing press so they used Gs.
so a year and half or so ago. It was the cheapest one in Sainsburys - it's really thin and sort of crinkly and it isn't long enough. I look forward to my next duvet.
Have stayed on the thin one all winter cos of the addition of mswza's recently completed massive crocheted granny square blanket.
not to be confused with the 14" Bush.
I had a nice one until I moved in with a boy. And then he moaned that it was too lumpy. Stupid boys.
One under my bedsheet and one as an actual duvet. My bed is dead good.
When it gets chilly.
Can't be arsed to wait for someone to talk about Christmas in a way that sets up that pun, so there it is.
How do you pronounce 'Duvet"?
(Who was it who said it like this?)
4.5 tog + 9 tog = 13.5 tog warmth in winter. prolly bought it 5 or so years ago, was well expensive actually but totally necessary in our freezing cold house.
without consulting my idiot at home. He can deal with it.
actually no, it's pretty good. better than just ok.
I just sleep under a sheet in the summer or sometimes not even that. Last night was cold and i slept in the farden in the summer house (which is mid construction and essentially a hut) so i took a very warm down duvet. A million tog. Im not vg at replacing duvets, i think i hoarde a bit. Im obbsessive about changing pillows thou because they are gross.
I need to control my fingers.
no it's ok.
Should treat myself to a new, thicker one. Or a hooker.
thanks for asking
so i'm really feeling like i might just go and buy a new duvet and pillows and then I AM THE KING
No greater feeling
YOU FUCKERS BOW DOWN TO MY SLEEPING
THEN you'll be the king of sleeping.
let that fucker do its thing
Which means he's probably had other girls under it, which I don't like.
It's artificial fibre from m&s and I'm unsure of the tog but i find it a little too warm sometimes.
Reading all of that back makes me really want to buy a new duvet.
but it's pretty light, like PickledOeuf up thread I usually sleep in just a sheet unless it's really cold.
I get pretty hot in bed.
