Quilt Warmth Ratings: Do you know what quilt you need?

Quilt Warmth Ratings: Do you know what quilt you need?

Quilt Warmth Ratings: Which type and style of quilt is best for you?

Unfortunately, there is no universal measure of a quilt's warmth or its thermal performance.

Over the years, we have noticed that there are many ways manufacturers and retailers rate quilts and this must be confusing to any buyer. How do you know which quilt is suited to your needs? The choice of the right quilt for you, depends upon many variables such as the climate, room temperature and everybody's personal warmth/cooling needs.

Kelly & Windsor uses four categories as a guide for a quilt's thermal performance -


A lightweight quilt of between 200 grams per square metre (gsm) fill weight up to 275gsm.
Suited to warm climates, heated sleeping environments and those sleepers who are naturally warm to hot in bed.

All Year Round

A quilt with a filling weight between 300gsm and up to 400gsm. 
Suited for use in a temperate climate with normal sleeping room heating and by regular temperature sleepers.


A quilt with a fill weight of between 400gsm to 500gsm.
Suited to cold climates, relatively cool sleeping rooms and for those that like that extra warmth.

Super Warm

A quilt of 600gsm or higher for very cold climates, where the sleeping room is also cold and those sleepers who feel the cold need to be extra warm at night.

The above provides a general guide as the selection of the right quilt for you. We believe that the BMI Matrix Warmth Guide is the most accurate and objective assessment of all relevant factors for the correct choice of the perfect quilt.

It's not simply a matter of price (cheap vs. expensive) or the weight of the quilt (a warm winter quilt will be too hot in tropical climates) or being confused by the nons..
