    Bamboo Filling

      Thanks to its fantastic properties, Bamboo bedding is becoming increasingly popular. It provides a very luxurious feel and amazingly without the high costs of other luxurious materials. Its breathing ability, softness, and ability to retain warmth are exceptional. These are the reasons why bamboos comforters are considered as one of the tops. Bamboo comforters are the single best choice when it comes to mild to extra hot sleepers, and that is why their popularity is rapidly increasing. The thick fibers of the bamboo let air pass back and forth easier, thus making them incredibly breathable. Bamboo comforters are a good option for individuals who are allergic to wool or goose down. Moreover, being made at 100% from botanical sources (bamboo, unbleached natural cotton) only, bamboo-filled duvet comforters are vegan-friendly. They are fluffy, silky, and reasonably priced.

        Cotton Filling

          Cotton is a plant fiber containing a high absorbency rate. This material has been cultivated for centuries now, it is breathable and hypoallergenic. For cotton filling, washability and resiliency are a plus. It is not as lofty and fluffy as polyester. Therefore it is used in lighter weight comforters. Cotton filled comforters are ideal for summer. They also provide a soft and sleek outlook. When you look for a cotton-filled duvet, you will have the choice between regular cotton and organic cotton. Organic cotton is made from natural seeds, with no use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals. As a result, organic cotton products are safer for the skin. They are also a better option for people with breathing allergies.  

            Wool Filling

This will keep your body from overheating and will provide you with a comfortable environment. Most of the wool fill comforters are not washable but choose one which is quickly and thoroughly washable. Wool fill is a natural anti-inflammatory, and the outlook of a wool fill comforter is more substantial than other fiber fills. Wool fill in comforters is ideal for the winterized bedroom.

              Just as for cotton, when choosing a wool-filled comforter, you will have the choice between natural wool and organic wool. To be certified organic, wool producers must meet very high and strict production standard such as USDA for organic sheep or lamb and then GOTS for the wool fiber sheared off the lamb or sheep. Being chemicals-free, organic wool comforters are a better option for people suffering from various allergies.

              Silk Filling

              The natural fiber spun from the silkworm gives the ultimate luxury when used in comforters. In natural fibers, Mulberry Silk is the longest.

Silk filling is most preferred because it is incredibly breathable, antibacterial, and moisture-wicking. As silk fill has hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory features, people who are allergic to the wool or cotton can benefit from Silk fill. Silk is also considered as the luxury year-around comforter fill. These comforters work best for individuals who are allergic to Wool or Goose Down.
