What is TOG?

TOG is a standardized measurement of how warm a textile product is--how well it insulates the wearer of the product. We test our Just Born Well Sleep products for their TOG rating to help parents make proper selection for the environment in which their baby will be sleeping. It is important to ensure that babies stay comfortably covered for restful sleep and don’t overheat. The Just Born Wear-A-Blanket that is made of 100% cotton has a TOG value of < 1.0. Experts suggest using the product in a room temperature of 75 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit, 24-26 Celsius.

Fun fact: The name comes from the informal word “togs” for clothing which derived from the word toga, the garment worn commonly by the ancient Romans.
