The Ups and Downs of Down Bedding

Down bedding is among the most comfortable and warmest of all bedding. It is made with down, a layer of fine feathers found under the tougher exterior feathers of some species of birds, especially geese. Down is an excellent thermal insulator and padding, used in many products including jackets, bedding, and pillows. The loose structure of down feathers traps air and that helps to insulate birds against the cold, and it’s also what gives down bedding its comfort and warmth.

Goose down has excellent thermal properties and has lofting characteristics. This means that the down traps small pockets of air efficiently. The small pockets of air provide the thermal barrier, which is what gives down its warmth. Down has the added property that it can be packed into a very small space.

Down bedding comes in several forms including comforters, pillows, and feather beds.

Down bedding comes in a wide selection of styles and warmth levels and a variety of price points for all budgets. Extra warmth down and light warmth down mean that you can use a down comforter all year round. The airiness and loft of down make it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, making it an ideal bedding material.

Down pillows also come in a variety of comfort levels including soft, medium and firm. Featherbeds are down feather filled and are used to make your bed even more comfortable. Blanket Warehouse has many styles and sizes to choose from.
