Down or Down Alternative

Down clusters are made up of light, fluffy filaments that expand and intertwine to form air pockets. These pockets trap air, making down nature's most effective insulator. That's what makes down so warm and light.

What About Down Allergies? Scientists believe it's the dust on improperly cleaned down — not down itself — that causes allergies. All of our down is cleaned with phosphate-free soap in state-of-the-art equipment, then thoroughly sterilized, so you can enjoy the lightweight and warmth of down, without the allergens.

Nevertheless, you may rest easier knowing there are absolutely no allergens in your bedding ensemble. So we're proud to offer a line of down alternative comforters filled with our own TCS Down Free® and world-famous PrimaLoft® fills. Both mimic down's warm, lofty insulating properties, without the sniffles.

Fill Power

What Is Fill Power? Fill power refers to the volume a single ounce of down takes up: the higher the fill power, the better the insulating quality of the down. Down from mature, larger birds has greater loft, so it insulates better — meaning less of it is required to keep you warm. Sometimes, less is more.

Comforter Cleaning & Care

When you first unpack your down comforter, it may appear wrinkled and flat. You can restore the natural loft by vigorously shaking or fluffing in your dryer on LOW.

How To Wash a Comforter

  • ✓ Hand or machine wash your down comforter separately in a large, front load tumble washer.
  • ✓ Use WARM water and mild detergent on DELICATE.
  • ✓ Tumble dry on LOW or no heat. Use tennis balls or fluffer rings to "punch" the comforter while it dries.
  • ✓ Do not bleach or iron.
  • ✓ Thread counts that are 400 sateen and above are dry clean only.
