Buying Down Alternative Comforters

By: Kevin Stith

Many of these alternatives are made of synthetic materials that simulate the look and feel of down. Primaloft Comforters, for example, are made from a hypoallergenic synthetic material that has proven to be a near match to down in warmth and comfort. Primaloft Comforters are available at The Company Store, Eddie Bauer and Land’s End.
 
Luxurious wool comforters, such as Euphoria Organic Wool Comforters, are also good down alternative comforters for people with allergies. This comforter is lightweight, warm, and luxurious like down, without the allergy risk.

The Euphoria Comforter is made from lamb wool and naturally repels dust mites. It is available from the Allergy Buyers Club.

Comforters made from alpaca or llama wool are also options. Alpacas and llamas have softer and lighter wool than sheep, resulting in a lighter comforter. An alpaca comforter is also available at Allergy Buyers Club.
 
Some people are not actually allergic to down, but to the dust mites and dust particles that live in the down. Hypodown Comforters are an excellent alternative for those allergic to dust mites. Hypodown is a fill made from combining white goose down and milkweed. Hypoallergenic Hypodown traps the dust and keeps it from being inhaled.

Hyperclean, TempraKON, and silk comforters are still other alternatives that the Allergy Buyers Club recommends. As you can see, even those who suffer from allergies can enjoy the soft, light warmth of a down comforter or a close alternative to one.
