Q:Hi, when washing my Alberta down comforter, can you use fabric softener in the washer or a fabric sheet in the dryer?Asked on 7/15/2017 by Laura from undisclosed
Q:Hi, I just ordered the Medium Alberta Down Comforter. I've been reading all about the warmth but I always thought that no matter what the loft is, a down comforter will keep you warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm? I mean I get that the light is specifically made for warmer temperatures because there is less down in it but again I always thought that no matter what a down comforter breaths if you will and will keep you cool when it's warm??Asked on 7/9/2017 by Laura from Belvidere, IL.
A:Hi Laura- The Medium warmth comforter is for all year round use. A down comforter will always provide warmth as it is a natural insulator. The more down you have the warmer it will be. This can vary depending on the fill power of the down used. Please feel free to contact our customer service department for further assistance. Thank you.
Q:I purchased the La Crosse Down comforter in the Light warmth and find it too light for what I'm looking for, mainly in how fluffy/lofty it is. I am now looking at either the Alberta or Legends Geneva down comforters but am unsure whether to purchase Light again or move up to Medium if I want it more fluffy. Can you offer a suggestion? Do the higher fill power and higher quality down make the comforter seem more fluffy?Asked on 5/17/2017 by Brooke from Apex, NC
A:Hi Brooke. If the Light warmth in the LaCrosse Down Comforter is not fluffy enough, make sure you have given it sufficient time out of the packaging to fluff up, a few days at least. Your other choices, Alberta or Geneva in the light warmth will be about the same as far as warmth, possibly slightly fluffier. Alberta has the same size square, 12" but is a baffled construction and allows the down to loft up higher. Because of the higher fill power, comparing king sizes, Lacrosse has 35oz of fill and Alberta has 34oz , higher fill power, slightly less down in the same size to make the same light warmth comforter. Geneva has a larger 15" square, also gives the down more room to loft and breathe, 600-650 white Hungarian Goose and has 34oz in the King. If you go to the Medium you will get more down fill, fluffier, LaCrosse, 42oz, Alberta 40oz or Geneva 40 oz . but it will be warmer. You decide. Thank you for your inquiry.
Q:How much in actual pounds and ounces does the medium warmth twin-size Alberta Euro down comforter weigh? Likewise how much in actual pounds and ounces do the same-size, same warmth 100% Hungarian goose down comforters (each of the three) weigh?Asked on 5/5/2017 by JAK from Ellington, CT
A:Hello. The Alberta™ Euro Down Comforter. Twin medium warmth has 25 oz of down fill. The actual weight of the finished product, outer shell and fill, is 4.8 lbs. This is folded and ready for shipping. The Legends® Luxury Geneva Down Comforter Twin Medium warmth has 25 oz of down fill. The actual weight is 4.2 lbs. The Legends® Luxury Royal Baffled Comforter Twin Medium warmth has 23 oz of down. The actual weight is 4.8 lbs. All 3 of these comforters are medium warmth and are the same warmth level as each other. All are as warm and as heavy as each other. The 2 comforters with the baffles weigh slightly more than the one without. The one with the higher fill power has 2 oz less fill but will still be medium warmth. We do the math for you. Any comforter that is a medium will be as lofty and as warm and weigh approximately the same as another comforter that is also medium warmth. If you have further questions call 1(800) 289-8508 for customer service. Thank you.
Q:I would like to know if a down comforter I purchased several years ago can be machine washed in a top load washer? Will I be able to dry it in a regular sized dryer? The comforter is an oversized queen. I don't remember the name of the down comforter and I can't find it on your site anymore but it is regular warmth and the color was called sterling.Asked on 4/14/2017 by Donna from Bellingham, WA
A:Hello Donna - Unfortunately, without knowing which comforter you purchased, I can not be sure of the care instructions. Some of our higher thread count comforters should be professionally dry cleaned. If it is machine washable, we recommend using the large commercial washers and dryers to lessen the wear and tear on the comforter. If you would like to call us at 1-800-285-3696, we can try to find your order so we can give you the correct information.
Q:Hi, I am unsure of the difference between your Alberta and White Bay comforters. They seem very similar, could you elaborate on the differences, aside from the additional options available from the White Bay?Asked on 4/1/2017 by Matt
A:Hi Matt- The only difference between the White bay and Alberta comforters would be the construction. The White Bay comforter has a sewn through box stitch construction and the Alberta comforter has a baffled box construction. The baffled box construction on the Alberta allows for additional loft and also helps to reduce cold spots. With the sewn through construction we stitch all the way through from the top of the comforter to the bottom sectioning off the squares. With the baffled construction we instead sew interior vertical walls of fabric that section off the squares and allow the down to loft to its maximum. Thank you.
Q:On a twin size Alberta Extra warmth (31 oz), LaCrosse Extra (30 oz.) or LaCrosse Ultra (35 oz), could you please tell me how much each of these 3 quilts actually weighs? Also, I'm assuming of these 3 the LaCrosse Ultra would be the warmest, but would it look more fluffy/poofy than the other two? Thanks so much ~Asked on 3/24/2017 by Louise
A:Hi Louise- The Alberta extra warmth twin weighs approximately 5.25 lbs. The Lacrosse extra twin weighs approximately 4.65 lbs and the Lacrosse ultra twin weighs approximately 4.35 lbs. The Lacrosse Ultra would be the warmest but is not going to have the most fluff. The Albert comforter is baffled and this will allow the down to fluff the most. Thank you.
Q:The tag on our Alberta queen comforter medium weight states minimum 75% down what is the other 25%? Also the tag states shell made in China was the comforter made in the USA?Asked on 3/9/2017 by Peter from Chicago Illinois
A:Hi Peter- The tag of the comforter will read 75% down because there is a chance that it could have a few feathers in the item. This is why we can not put 100% down. The shell of the item is made in China but the comforter is made in the USA. Thank you.
I had a pillow, from a different company, that was made from duck feathers. I ended up throwing it away, because it had a bad odor. A sales associate at another store told me it was due to the duck feathers, and I should try a goose down pillow. I did, and I still enjoy that pillow almost 20 years after I bought it. My question is will there be an odor to this duvet, or are your ducks given a diet that eliminates this issue? I'm trying to decide between this comforter and one of your goose down duvets. I live in a subtropical area, so I am afraid your Hungarian goose down may be too warm. But I don't want a stinky duvet, either.
Thank in advance for your help.Asked on 2/17/2017 by Melinda from United States
A:Hi Melinda. The Alberta™ Euro Down Comforter. Feather filled products may have an odor because the odor can cling to the quill that feathers have. This usually goes away after airing out, and with use. Our comforters are filled with down, not feathers. Down has no quill and has no odor. Thank you.
Q:I sleep in a room that is below 60 degrees at night in the winter. I plan on using this comforter without a top sheet and no duvet cover. I have a queen bed but want to buy your king size comforter so that it will be long enough on the sides and bottom. Will this comforter be warm enough under these conditions?Asked on 2/9/2017 by Pat from Falls Church, VA
A:Hi Pat - The Alberta Comforter in the Extra Warmth is recommended for room temperatures 62-65 degrees. If you like to sleep just a bit warm this item may still work for you if your room temperature is between about 57-62 degrees. If you like to sleep very warm we would recommend going to our Ultra Warmth which unfortunately is not available in the Alberta comforter. We do offer our Organic Cotton RDS Down Comforter in Ultra warmth which is machine washable like the Alberta. Here is a link to our Organic Comforter http://www.thecompanystore.com/bedding-comforters/organic-cotton-rds-down-comforter/c2v6-ps-h16.html . Thank you.
