For the very best night's sleep
We've all been there at one moment or another - you're lying in bed, perfectly comfortable and content and your partner complains it's too hot and flings off the duvet. Or they start hogging the whole duvet because they're freezing cold. Ring any bells?
If you and your partner can't agree on the right tog rating for your duvet (perhaps one of you feels the cold more than the other) then we may just have the perfect solution.
Allow me to introduce TwoTog, a duvet that's designed to be both warm and cool side by side, to give you and your partner your own degree of warmth. A unique concept which enables you to personalise your duvet for the very best night's sleep; simply select the tog rating best suited to you for your side, and your partner for theirs.
TwoTog is made exclusively by us here at Herbert Parkinson, John Lewis' very own textiles manufacturing company. Based in a traditional mill in Lancashire, we've been making expert products since 1934. As well as making all the goose down duvets and the majority of the natural pillows in our shops, we supply most of the cushions in-store too.
I'm part of a small team that makes all the duvets. We make the TwoTog duvets using a baffle box construction case (that means the filling doesn't move around) on a machine that's programmed to fill the correct amount of filling into each box and it fills two rows of boxes at a time. When it's filled one half of the duvet it automatically changes the fill amount for the other half to give the different tog rating.
TwoTog is available in John Lewis shops and online in Hungarian goose down - an exceptionally soft and comfortable filling that provides warmth with less weight than duck down. We stock a summer weight (4.5/7 tog) or winter weight (13.5/10.5 tog) version in double, kingsize or super kingsize. Take a closer look at the packaging, and you'll see a photo of me on the side of the duvet box operating the machinery - fame at last!
And if the off-the-shelf TwoTog duvets aren't right for you, then you can special order any tog combination in Goose Down, Hungarian Goose Down, Siberian Goose or Winter Snow Goose and you'll have it delivered within 14 days. Just ask in our shops for details.
