Naturally fluffy, down is both light and lofty with the ability to wick moisture away. Quality plume clusters of down provide superior, adjustable comfort and insulation without the added weight. Each ounce of high quality down has about two million fluffy filaments that interlock and overlap. Down can be evaluated using fill power as a measurement; the higher the fill power, the more refined the down plume is. Down sleep products are the softest and provide a “light as air” feeling while keeping sleepers warm.
Feathers provide a resilient kind of support that adjusts to a sleeper’s every move. Feather sleep products are generally 75-95 percent feather blended and 25-5 percent down. They are heavier than down sleep products, but they can be easily compressed or folded into the perfect sleeping position.
Wool provides a fuller feeling sleep product, and it maintains warmth while absorbing moisture away from the sleeping surface. Wool keeps its good appearance through years of wear and regular cleaning. The natural “high bulk” crimp of wool specifically used for sleep products provides resilience to compression.
Cotton filling creates a firmer, flatter product that holds its shape reasonably well. Cotton is also cooler and “breathes” better than other materials, but it does not wick moisture away very easily. Cotton products are best for individuals who require firm support while sleeping.
In contrast to synthetic fibers, cellulosic fibers like TENCEL® offer unique moisture transport and wicking properties. The excellent moisture management regulates body temperature and guarantees a pleasant and dry climate as you sleep.
100 percent silk-filled products are the finest and are a perfect solution for asthma and allergy sufferers. They offer natural ventilation, moisture wicking properties and is hypo-allergenic, creating the perfect shield between sleepers and allergens.
