What is a comforter?

A comforter is a bed covering similar to a thick, quilted and fluffy blanket. It is filled with soft fibers to ensure the filling is stable, spread evenly, and then quilted or sewn in a pattern.



Best types of comforters.

  1. Down Comforters

      Down comforters are filled with feathers sourced from duck or geese underbellies, lightweight, soft and fluffy. Comforters that are made of down have a plush hand feel and a lofty, voluminous look. And surely the price is expensive.

  1. Down Alternative Comforters

     Down alternative comforters are filled with several natural or synthetic materials that emulates the feel of down without sourcing materials from animals, great option for cruelty-free shoppers, allergy sufferers, and surely people on a tight budget.



Benefits of comforters.

  1. Warmth: a comforter can help keep warm all through the night. But different weights and thicknesses will provide you more choices for different seasons or temperature.
  2. Soft and Comfortable: because of materials, such as cotton, microfiber, silk, and animal feathers, comforters are breathable and soft to touch, which will contribute to a more comfortable and luxurious sleep.
  3. Style: comforters have many colors, patterns, and designs in the market, you can choose what you like to match your décor in the bedroom.
  4. Easy to Care for: most comforters are machine washable, making it convenient to keep them clean and fresh. Butdo not always wash comforters, 1-2 times/year is okay.

And for down comforters, we recommend that you have them professionally laundered to avoid damage.
