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..
The choice of quilt cover fabric is crucial for purpose and quality!The choice of quilt cover fabric by quilt manufacturers is an important decision relative to appearance, softness, handle and the overall performance of the finished quilt.

A common question is: What is the blanket warmth of this quilt?It's a quaint expression used uniquely in the Australian bedding retail sector. The
question is asking bedding manufacturers to provide an indication of a quilt's warmth by comparing their various quilts to the number of equivalent wool blankets needed to provide the
