Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog duvet

2 April 2024 6 min read

If you’re itching for a warm, cosy duvet for those chilly autumn and winter nights, Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog duvet might just be the one you need. To see whether you should do that, we’ve got our hands on it, we’ve tested it, and now, we’ve decided to bring you this review.

Who is Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog duvet for?

Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet is for everyone that needs a warm, winter-style duvet that will keep them warm all through the winter. Unlike many other duvets on the UK market, this one duvet is not for warmer nights.

Instead, it is a heavy-duty extra warm duvet made for those freezing nights during which you just need that extra bit of warmth and cosiness to get through to the morning.

What do we use this product for?

Seeing how this is a 15 Tog duvet, we’d mostly use It during the colder months. This is not the duvet you’d want to curl up under if it isn’t chilly outside.
Made from synthetic hollowfibre, Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet is amazing at retaining heat, and it promises to keep you warm even if you sleep in a room with no heating whatsoever.
Seeing how it comes in four sizes, ranging from Single to a Super King, we can see this one being used by couples, as well as single-sleepers.

Features you should know about Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog duvet

Now, let’s take a look at some of the features that Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet has to its name.

Virgin polyester cover

As with any other duvet, Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet comes without a removable cover. Duvets are almost exclusively a one-piece item, that you’d put into a separate, standalone cover or a sheet if you wanted to.

However, if you don't want to shop around for a separate duvet cover, you'll be pleased to know that this one comes with a soft, 100% polyester microfibre cover.

Due to its synthetic nature, the cover is very pleasant on the skin, doesn't absorb moisture or odours, is highly durable, and is quite good at retaining heat, making it ideal for cold nights.

15 TOG

Duvets work by trapping your body’s heat and warming you up with it. The higher the Tog rating, the better the duvet will be at retaining heat and keeping you warm.

This one, in particular, has a Tog rating that is ideal for the winter months. At 15 Tog, Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet is as insulating as possible. Many would even argue that 15 Tog duvet (or even 13.5 Tog duvet) is too much since we're rarely sleeping in rooms that cold. To a point, we agree, but – to each their own. We’re sure many customers will find a good use for a 15 Tog duvet such as this one.

Polyester hollowfibre filling

The insides of the Fogarty duvet are generously filled with soft, polyester hollowfibre filling for great insulation and added comfort. It also contains recycled fibre, so we guess you could say it is a tad eco-friendly, as well.

All in all, synthetic fillings are a great substitute for natural fillings like feather and down or wool. They're easily washable, most of the time, they don't cause allergies, and they rarely ever absorb moisture and odours.

Most importantly, they do a great job of retaining body heat, which is basically all that a duvet needs to do.


As we’ve said, synthetic fibres are easily washable, which means that this entire duvet can be machine-washable, as well as tumble dried on low heat settings.

Synthetic hollowfibre fillings dry out easily, and they seldomly clump or bunch, so you shouldn’t have any worries about ruining your duvet this way.

However, keep in mind that King size and Super King size duvets probably won’t fit a regular consumer washing machine, so you will probably have to visit a local Laundromat.

Luckily, the King Arthur mattress has handles on both sides, so you won't have to struggle when it's time to rotate this 34 cm deep beast of a bed.

Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet Review

Now, let’s hear our review and final verdict.

The first thing that struck us was just how comfortable this duvet was for a 15 Tog duvet. It wasn't snug or heavy – weighing only around 4 kilos. Now, we know Tog has nothing to do with weight, but when we were under it, it didn't feel like we were lying under something that should be getting you this warm – so kudos to that.

The design of this one is excellent as far as we’re concerned. It is simple and elegant, as all bedding should be.

The cover feels very premium and soft, almost silk-like, so we guess you could say that the name was appropriate.

The only thing we didn’t like was the fact that you were limited to only using this one a few months a year, but you can’t really hold a 15 Tog duvet accountable for that. It was intentionally made that way.

The common problems with Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog & how to solve them

The biggest issue (but not really an issue at all) is the fact you're getting a limited amount of time to use this duvet. Let’s be honest – you're not going to need a 15 Tog duvet that often. In fact, as long as you keep your house or a flat relatively warm – a duvet this warm will be an overkill.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

What makes Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog Duvet truly special is that it is one of the seldom products that actually meet and exceed expectations. If you are simply looking for a duvet that you'll use during the winter, because you have a summer duvet or a light blanket – you won't go wrong choosing this one.
It is warm, comfortable and most importantly – durable. We’re sure you’ll be able to get years of quality sleep out of this one.

To top all of that off, it is one of the most competitively priced duvets on the market, so not only is this one a worthy investment, but it is also a very reasonable one.

How did we test the product?

We always do our best to test extensively test the products before we review them, and that process always consists of:

Is Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog eco-friendly or sustainable?

Considering this one's filled with recycled polyester fibre, we can safely say that it is eco-friendly in that regard. On the other hand, we do have a virgin polyester duvet cover, which isn't the most sustainable or eco-friendly choice out there.

So, 50-50 on this one.

Overall impressions of the product after the testing

Overall, we were very pleased with the Fogarty Soft Touch 15 Tog duvet.

It is a solid mid-range option for those chilly winter nights.

It has performed better than many other similar or even some more expensive products that we've tried in the past and if you have the need for it – we'd definitely recommend it.

Our testers gave it a rating of 8/10.
