    Labor Day Weekend Sale Coming Next Week.
    It’s hard to believe that we are in the last few days of summer. September always brings change from schedules, to weather and activities. Some of us are heading back to work, and others are going off to school. Providing comfort during sleep for our loved ones and ourselves is important. I thought I would highlight our lightweight, twin down comforters today. http://www.downcomforterworld.com/twinsizecomforters
  9. Back To School
    Back to school where students are returning to college, university and neighborhood schools is just around the corner. As parents we rush to pick up supplies, clothes and yes even bedding for dorm rooms. Providing your child with a quality, easy to care for comforter that is non-allergic is important for a quality night's sleep. A down alternative twin comforter is a great choice as it provides warmth, is lightweight and budget friendly. Check these out. http://www.downcomforterworld.com/twinalternatives
  10. A benefit of a down comforter is that these comforters are veery light weight ad provide superior warmth.  Down alternatives use synthetic fill which is much heavier that down and is not as warm as down.  Down bedding is breathable, hence moisture is wicked away from the body.

  11. Why Choose a Down Alternative Comforter?
    Down alterntive comfortors are an excellent option for anyone considering a budget friendly option.  These comforters may be a prefered choice for allergy suffers as down alternative comforters are also completely hypoallergenic as long as they are kept clean.  Check our Sierra and Astra down alterntive comforter series.  They use Comforel fiber which closely imitates the warmth and feel of natural down.

  12. Down Comforters vs Alternative Down Comforters
    What is the dfference between a down and a down alternative comforter?
    Down comforters and down alternatives are both used as coverngs while you sleep.  The difference between the two is the type of fill used beween the shell.  Down comforters are filled with either goose or duck down.  Down alternatives are filled with synthetic fabrics.
  13. As the weather begins to warm, this becomes a great time to switch your regular weight comforter to a summer weight comforter or a down blanket.  Our down blankets provide enough warmth to provide a good nights sleep. Check our good selection of down blankets at a variety of price points.

  14. The long awaited sale is finally here. Check out the great prices on our quality down comforters which are all made in the USA. This weekend is a great time to purchase the down comforter of your dreams.

  15. Qualities of Eider Down
    Eider down comes from the Common Eider Duck a large migratory sea duck. This down is very highl prized, very rare and is found in high end down comforters. Eider down has excellent insulation properties and is extremely light weight.  This down is considered the softest and lightest in the world.


  16. When comparing duck vs goose down some differences are found.  In general, goose down tends to be more valuable than duck down.  Goose down clusters are larger more durable, resiliant and produce higher fill powers or loft than duck down.

  17. Is there really a difference between down and feathers. Absolutely. Feathers are a part of the outer covering of birds such as geese and ducks.  Feathers have quills ( long sharp and pointed center part of feather) and tend to be larger than down. Feathers can pierce fabric. Down is found under the feather and helps the birds stay warm. Somve of the characteristics of down is that is is insulating, fluffy, soft, airy and light weight.  Feathers work well when used in deorator pillows.  Down is much better suited to down duvets or sleeping pillows.
  18. What is loft in down.  Loft is a standard measurement for down.  Thismeasurement looks at one ounce of down and how much volume this one ounce fills. Currently the highest loft ever tested is 1000, however this is extremely rare.  When purchasing a down comforter it is important to consider the loft of the down comforter.  The higher the loft number, the higher the down quality, and the higher the loft the more light weight and puffy the down comforter is.

  19. Duck down comforters are an excellent alternative to goose down comforters.  Duck down comforters are very lightweight, fluffy and are especially excellent in the spring and fall time. These comforters have an excellent price point, for those who want the warmth of down and are looking for an economic alternative.  Our supplier Pacific Coast provides good quality duck down comforters. Have a look for your self.

  20. Regular fluffing of your down comforter is important to keep your comforter light and airy.  To complete this task take two end corners of the comforter and shake the comforter up and down vigorously 5 times.  Weekly fluffing will increase the warmth of the comforter and will redistribute the down and place air between the down. This is key to continued lightweght quilts and maintain fluffyness.

  21. I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood today, looking at all of the daffodils in bloom. Beautiful, bold yellow color everywhere.  When the daffodils are out, then its time to switch from your winter fill down comforter or your full weight down comforter, to a medium weight if you live in then northern states or Canada.  For those living in the southern states a spring, or lightweight comforter will do.
  22. A new echo-friendly and completely "green product" has been added to our comforter products.  Organa is just amazing.  This comforter's shell is constructed from certified organic cotton in combination with Lyocell a revolutionary new fabric made from wood pulp of the eucalyptus tree.  This Cotton/Lyocell shell combination results in a very durable fabric, that is incredibly soft, lightwight and strong.  The Lyocell in the fabric combination provides more consistent temperature control and a great ability to wick moisture form the sleeper, allowing for a quality sleep. Check out this new and improved down duvet.
  23. Next week we will be launching a fabulous new collection called our Organa Down Comforter Collection.  The reason we are so excited is that this down comforter line will be featuring an Organic Cotton and Lyocell blend shell.  The cotton part of this fabric is officially certified as organic.  That means that the cotton was grown with non-genetically engineered seeds, and has not been sprayed with pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.  This is a great new "green" product that we will be offering and are excited to share this with all of you. I will let every one know next week when it is available with a pciture attached. Be sure to check this out.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you.  Another reminder is that you can have your purchase sent directly to that special someone in your life.
  26. I received an interesting question today and I thought I would provide some ideas around the question.  Today a customer asked me will a down throw work as well as a down comforter?  This is a good questions and I did some thinking on this.  The kids/toddler comforters come in 4 sizes, are all white in color, will require a comforter cover, and provide more warmth, loft and fluffness.  The down throw/blanket comes only in one size (35" X 55"), is less lofty or fluffy, and comes in several colors. The decrease loft and fill mean that it will be less warm. Check the down blanket, down throw tab and you will be able to see the vaious colors available.  An alternative to the kids down comforters are our down alternative kids/ toddler comforters.  These come in 4 sizes and are easy care as they do not neccessarily require a down cover and can easily be washed.  These down alternatives are also budget friendly.  I just thought I would take some time to clarify the difference.

  31. I just finished my walk outside.  The air was nippy and beneath my feet was a great layer of thick crunchy leaves.  The atmoshere was beautiful.  Oh how I enjoy fall, as it means I am closer to my favorite time of year namely Christmas.  After I finished my walk, i did park myself infront of the fireplace with a lightweight down blanket wrapped around my legs. Pure bliss.  This is a great time to think of having a down blanket ready to pull over you as fall turns into winter.  Have a lok at our excellent selection of down blankets that are all manufactured in the USA.  Today is Halloween.  Enjoy your evening safely

Dorms can be cool at night and snuggling into a warm cozy down comforter will give your student a great sleep. A good sleep will give energy to study and enjoy campus life.  We carry quality twin size down comforters in all price points.
  55. A question that I have recieved from Naomi today is: Do down comforters have to have a duvet cover and secondly does down comforter world carry any duvet covers.  All down comforters should have a duvet cover placed over them.  A duvet quilt or duvet cover protects the down comforter from getting soiled and increases the longevity of the down comforter. A clean down comforter does not have to be washed often thereby decreasing the wear and tear on the comforter. Down Comforter World does not carry any duvet covers as we currently specialize in down comforters only.
  56. Blogging is new for me.  I receive numerous emails asking me questions about down comforters, and how to choose the correct down comforter.  I have decided to use this blog as a forum to communicate information about our down comforters. I will also post questions asked and the answers that I provide. I am hoping that this will make it easier for each of you to choose the best down comforter that will meet the needs that each of you individually have.  I am very interested in hearing from each of you as this will allow me to choose products that work and are of excellent quality. So let the adventure begin.
