A Natural Option
Down is a natural alternative to synthetic fill. The material is a favorite among high-end hotels for its warmth and fluffiness. Sourcing naturally bright, white duck feathers from a Midwestern farm, Michigan-based Down Inc. crafts beautiful bed basics and oversees production from the harvesting to the sorting and washing.
Supersoft and body-conforming, down makes for a cozy sleep experience. Long feathers and heavier plumage are used to lend support and shape to pillows and beds. For comforters, light and airy down clusters trap air to hold warmth without weight.
What You Should Know: Fill power measures the loft of a down product. The higher the fill power, the more insulation in each ounce of down. That means less weight yet greater warmth.
A Full Look
The best way to achieve the lofty look of a hotel bed is to use down duvets and pillows. When fluffed, a down comforter maintains a perfectly smooth and freshly made appearance. Layer pillows of different sizes to complete the plush look.
Tip: Using a duvet cover and pillow shams protects your foundation bedding, so it will last longer.
