Down Alternative Comforters

When you are choosing the type of comforter you want for your bed, you have several options. Down comforters are warm and comfortable, but have some drawbacks. Down-alternative comforters should be considered as they have several advantages over down.

  • They’re Warm
    The materials used in down alternative comforters mimic the properties of natural down, so they are very warm and comfortable. They also have the advantage of being lighter than down and better for year-round use.

  • They’re Luxurious
    Down-alternative comforters are made with quality materials, especially in the covers. They feel just as luxurious as a down comforter, and they come in many similar styles.

  • They’re Hypoallergenic
    Down is a major cause of allergies in some people. There are types of down that are labeled as “hypoallergenic,” but your best bet in a hypoallergenic comforter is a down-alternative version. It not only looks like down, but feels like it too. The major difference is that it won’t cause allergy symptoms.

  • They’re Easier To Care For
    Down requires special handling and care. Down-alternative comforters are easily machine washed and dried so they can be laundered more frequently, another bonus for allergy sufferers. Most alternative fills also resist bacteria growth, making them a healthier choice for everyone.

    Bedding can aggravate allergies; employing a compound strategy is the best way to combat them. Using an allergy mattress and pillow covers, hypoallergenic comforters and pillows, and washing sheets and pillow cases weekly in hot water should give adequate protection against dust mite allergens.
