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.
Q:I bought one of your comforters and it appears worn out (flat and when held to window some squares lack down or they have collapsed. So what does lifetime guarantee mean?Asked on 1/31/2017 by don't have one from Newport Beach, CA
A:Hi- Please visit http://www.thecompanystore.com/service-faqs-down-lifetime-guarantee.html for the lifetime guarantee information or contact our customer service department at 1-800-323-8000 Monday-Friday: 6am-Midnight CST or Saturday & Sunday: 8am-5pm CST. Thank you.
Q:What type of warranty do you offer on your down comforters?Asked on 1/30/2017 by Judy from Jupiter Florida
A:Hi Judy - We have a 90 day return policy for returns and exchanges. After the 90 days we have a Lifetime Guarantee against manufacturers defects for all items made in our La Crosse, WI factory. The Lifetime Guarantee will cover the majority of our down comforters. We do have a few comforters that are imported and not made by us and these would only have a 90 day return policy. For more information regarding our Lifetime Guarantee please see this link http://www.thecompanystore.com/service-faqs-down-lifetime-guarantee.html . Thank you.
Q:The description for the Alberta comforter lists 600-650 fill power. How much does the King Extra Warmth weigh? (Not on order description)
Erin DolingerAsked on 1/25/2017 by Erin from PA
Q:Dear Company Store,
Some of the comforters list their weight, where as this one has a "fill" definition. Could you tell me what the down weight is? (For example, in the warmest down king-sizes, one is listed as 55 oz, vs 63 oz for your most expensive.) Thank you,
