Choose the Best Comforter for Your Sleeping Style

September 12, 2013

Choosing a reliable comforter can be a hassle. Each person has different needs for sleeping, and comforters are made in a variety of styles. There are many factors to consider to ensure you choose the right one. Temperature, texture and filling are important components of a quality comforter.


Most comforters are either made with linen or cotton. If sensitive skin is an issue, it may be better to go with cotton as it is softer and less abrasive. If durability is a concern, linen is the stronger fiber. While both are long-lasting, linen is more likely to keep up year-after-year with less rapid break down. It also weighs less than the cotton variety. Since linen is smoother in texture, it is more resistant to lint. If appearance is important, unlike linen, cotton is less likely to wrinkle.


Down comforters are soft and luxurious. Some comforters contain hypoallergenic down filling. Down alternative and mixtures are also available. For lighter weight, some comforters contain a mixture of down and polyester. Wool comforters are sustainable and environmentally-friendly since wool can be extracted without causing harm to the sheep. It is also resistant to fires. If a flame is brought in contact with wool, it will extinguish itself almost immediately--this could mean the difference between life and death in the event of a house fire.


Some people can only sleep in the perfect temperature conditions. If you are naturally a warm sleeper you need less to cover, and the opposite is true for cold sleepers. The size and thickness of a comforter determines how much heat will be retained when cold or how much cool air can be felt when hot. A comforter is rated with a fill power, which is a number used to designate its thickness. The typical range is anywhere from 525 to 700 fill power. The higher the number the fluffier the comforter, so for extra warmth aim for the higher fill power.

Versatility for Couples

Usually when a new bedspread is chosen, it affects the buyer and his or her partner. To be fair to both people, a comforter than can adapt to each person’s needs is the best option. The duvet for two, known as the Twovet™, is a comforter with a thick side and a thin side to suit both partners. The thick side is made for the person who needs more warmth while the thin side is for the person who likes to feel cooler. The Twovet™ is also more pleasing to the eye than separate blankets on a bed. It is hypoallergenic, filled with down alternative and lined with cotton to cover the previous areas of choice.

Staying healthy is useless without acquiring optimum sleep. Healthy sleep repairs the body and keeps it functional. When sleeping with a partner it may not be easy to get the best rest when both want different things from the bed covering. Many couples sleep in separate beds due to differences in sleeping habits. Could the Twovet™ be the solution to deep restful sleep for couples?
