This a question we get asked a lot. Firstly, togs don’t work for wool bedding like they do for down and synthetic and this is because of their incredible, natural insulation properties. We have tried hard to offer a tog guide, but in terms of performance, wool bedding is in a league of its own.
Wool is a highly efficient natural fibre. The inherent natural 3D crimp of the wool fibre traps pockets of still air, insulating your skin from the cold environment and keeping you warmer. Wool maintains a drier microclimate next to your skin, keeping you warm and dry.
Wool fibres are naturally breathable. They can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour and allow it to evaporate, making wool feel less clingy and more comfortable than bedding made from other fibres. In contrast to synthetics, wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in the body’s temperature, keeping the user comfortable.
So in answer to the original question, you really shouldn’t overheat under wool bedding. The choice comes down to user preference. If you live in a well-insulated house in the UK and prefer a lighter duvet, then the All Season is probably the one for you. If you prefer more weight and cosiness and live in a cooler house, then the winter weight maybe more suitable. From April onwards, you may even prefer a summer weight which is for those that don’t like much weight at all during the warmer months.
