When it comes to comforters, you can’t beat the softness and versatility of all-natural down. Not only is down breathable; it also traps body heat, which makes it the perfect bedding material for all climates.
At Vero Linens, they believe that in order to choose the best down comforters for your household, you have to understand how different styles of comforters work. This way, you can choose ones that are perfect for each person’s individual sleeping preferences.
Understanding Construction Style
You may have experienced the frustration of purchasing goose down comforters, only to have them wear thin in certain places within a few cycles of washing and drying. Part of the problem with certain comforters is their construction style.
Comforters made in this style have individual compartments with rings quilted in each one. The compartments in ring-stitch comforters are very large, which allows the down filling to shift to the outer edges over time. When this happens, you get cold spots in the center of each compartment—brrrrr!
This kind of comforter features a top and bottom layer that has down blown into it. After that, it’s run through a quilting machine, creating square compartments. A box-stitched down comforter will have the same problem as a ring-stitched one, though. With use, the down begins to migrate to the outer edges of each compartment, leaving you with no coverage in the center of each one.
Vero Linens down comforters are made with a premium construction style known as baffle-box. These feature a side wall in each compartment area, which allows the down to expand, or “loft,” more fully. This allows the down to trap air and hold in body heat (much like the insulation in your house). With baffle-box down comforters, there is no down migration and no uncomfortable cold spots.
Choosing the Perfect Comforter Weight
The average person spends a whopping one-third of their lives sleeping, so it’s important that they be comfortable while doing so. Bedding weight depends on various factors such as personal preference and the local climate. To guide you towards the right one, here’s a quick explanation of the weight options available for Vero Linens down comforters.
Some people get cold at night. For those who live in chilly climates or who just naturally climb into bed with icy hands and feet, a Vero Linens down comforter in our regular weight will keep everything warm and toasty.
For those who like to stay at an average temperature while they sleep, light down comforters are best. These are ideal for climates that aren’t too frigid or sweltering.
In order to fall asleep, your body temperature has to drop a bit. For people who are hot-natured or who live in tropical climates, down comforters that are too heavy can make getting to sleep impossible. Our summerweight comforters provide just the right amount of shelter without being too warm.
