What are the Best Filling Options for Organic Comforters

Finding the right duvet or comforter is not as easy as it seems. It is like women looking for a great pair of shoes. Different individuals have different preferences, so it is challenging to fit both their personality and their needs. Finding the right organic bed comforter to fit your style when investing in the quality of natural material depends on making a few important choices.

If you want the utmost comfort any time, relaxing or sleeping, finding the best material for your comforter is a must. And that choice is a very personal process. Below are few guidelines to help you in your research for your best natural, organic and healthy duvet comforter.

The natural filling options you may consider are bamboo, cotton, wool and silk.

    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 organic bamboo duvet comforters are considered as one of the top in a very short list.

      Bamboo comforters are a very good choice for people who describe themselves as hot sleepers. The dense yet porous quality of the bamboo fibers let air circulate back and forth easily; thus creating a highly breathable comforter that will keep you warm and comfy all night, no sweat.

      Morever, bamboo comforters are a good option for individuals who are allergic to wool or goose down. Being made at 100% from botanical sources (bamboo fibres cased in an unbleached natural cotton shell) only, bamboo-filled duvet comforters are vegan-friendly. Their gentle weight makes you feel cozy and at peace.

        Cotton Filling

          Cotton is a plant fiber with a high absorbency rate. Cotton has been cultivated for centuries now, if not millennials. Cotton is breathable and hypoallergenic. Cotton filling is not as lofty and fluffy as polyester, therefore it is mostly used in lighter weight comforters such as summer comforters.

          Cotton comforters provide a soft and sleek outlook. But not all cotton are equal. The culture of regular cotton is one of the most polluting production. If you are looking for a healthy and sustainable option for your comforter, we recommend that you look for organic cotton options. 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 and are a better option for people with breathing allergies.  

            Wool Filling

              For the ultimate warmth and moisture-wicking in comforters, go for the lamb wool filling in your quilts today. Lamb wool will keep your body from overheating and will provide you with a comfortable environment. It also act as a natural anti-inflammatory.

              Most of the wool filled comforters are not washable. Do your research and choose one which is quickly and thoroughly washable. The look of a wool duvet comforter is more substantial than other fiber fills. Wool filled comforters are often chosen for winter comforters.

              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 silk fiber spun from the silkworm brings its ultimate luxury when used in comforters. Just as for wool filled comforters, many silk filled comforters are not washable but some are machine washable and that makes our life so much easier. Make sure to choose a washable option.

              Mulberry silk filled comforters are incredibly breathable, antibacterial, and moisture-wicking. Silk fibers have hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a good option for people who are allergic to wool or cotton.

              Due to their light weight, silk filled duvet comforters are comfortable all year-around. It will make you feel comfy no matter if its summer or winter.

              Conclusion:

              Different comforter fill options provide various benefits. It makes it almost impossible to choose "the best one" since this choice truly depends on each person needs and preferences.
