Shopping for comforters may feel like an easy task, but we know how confusing it can be when there are so many options to choose from. With us, finding the right comforter is a breeze.
When shopping for bedding, we tend to look for something that takes our personal preferences and surroundings into account. Let's begin by navigating the process of choosing a comforter that is best for you. Although there is a wide range of choices for comforters, the distinctions are usually based on size, weight, warmth, fill, and fabric. The most common confusion is over the ideal fill of your comforter.
For most people, this will come down to a choice between two of the most common types of fill: down fill, and synthetic or down alternative fill. In this article, we're going to provide three simple ways for you to choose which type of fill will suit you best when upgrading your bedroom!
Let's start by quickly understanding the difference between the two fills;
- Down is essentially the soft and delicate feathers that are found beneath the exterior quilled feathers of waterfowl. Down-filled comforters have incredible warmth retention and are extremely lightweight.
- Down Alternative comforters have synthetic fill. Polyester is the most popular synthetic fill and can provide similar insulation as down comforters.
Down Alternative Comforters:
Down alternative comforters are usually more economical. These comforters can provide a similar level of warmth and plush as down comforters. Down alternative comforters are also hypoallergenic, so if you are looking for an allergy-friendly option, a down alternative comforter is your answer!
Down alternative comforters are widely available because of the abundance of synthetic fill. These comforters are adequately durable and can mimic the same feel as down.
Down Alternative comforters are usually moisture wicking, which means they absorb less moisture and dry relatively quickly. These comforters are also machine washable at home.
Down is what keeps waterfowl warm. It is a naturally insulating material that excels at providing warmth. Thanks to being able to produce thousands of tiny air pockets, natural down is also highly breathable.
Lightweight and Compressible
Down is breathable in a way that allows unwanted moisture vapor to escape. Besides being incredibly lightweight, down-filled comforters also provide excellent temperature regulation, so you stay warm and cozy all night while you sleep.
Down's durability is unmatched; good quality down comforters can last for years. Down-filled products can be handed down through generations with regular dry cleaning and consistent care.
