Down Buyer's Guide

Why Buy Down?


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

Since down "breathes," it naturally regulates warmth and wicks away moisture. Most synthetics, on the other hand, trap body heat and moisture so you wake up feeling clammy.

What about down allergies?
Scientists believe that it is the dust on improperly cleaned down - not the down itself - that causes allergies. All down used by The Company Store is washed up to 10 times with phosphate-free soap in state-of-the-art equipment and then thoroughly sterilized.
