Frequently Asked Questions About Down Comforters:
Are down comforters worth it? Offering the perfect balance of warmth and breathability, down comforters are definitely worth the investment. They maintain their fluffiness and loft over time, which means you won’t have to replace them as often.
What are the benefits of down comforters? Down comforters are available in lightweight, medium weight and heavyweight styles to accommodate for the season and your sleep temperature. Since they are inserted into duvet covers, you can change up your bedding easily without crowding your linen closet with a bunch of fashion comforters.
How do you pick a good down comforter? When shopping for a down comforter, you want to pay attention to the fill power. This factor determines how warm the comforter will be. The higher the fill power the warmer the comforter. You also want to consider the thread count, which determines how soft the comforter will feel to the touch. Higher thread counts will be more costly, but they’re definitely worth the price, because who doesn’t want to sleep on a cloud?
How often should you wash a down comforter? To keep your down comforter clean and protected, we recommend housing it inside a duvet cover. This way you only need to wash it a couple of times a year. We suggest using an industrial-sized washing machine that will comfortably accommodate the comforter. Your duvet cover should be removed and washed weekly. Before you wash your bedding, please take a peek at the care instructions.
Duvet Cover Sets. Including a duvet cover and coordinating shams, a duvet set is essential for your down comforter. It will prevent your precious down comforter from getting dirty easily. Check out duvet comforter sets available for your twin comforters, full comforters, queen comforters and king comforters. Please note, queen duvets can be used for a full-size bed as well.
Sheet Sets. Beneath your down comforter, you’ll want to snuggle up to plush sheets. To make things easier and economical, we suggest purchasing a sheet set that includes a matching fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillowcases. Remember the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets.
Decorative Pillows. If you want to lend some flavor or sophistication to your bedding, indulge in decorative pillows. Don’t be afraid to experiment with prints, textures and colors. FYI, velvet and furry pillows are trending right now.
