Down filled comforters are generally considered the most luxurious option, but they have a number of drawbacks. Because down is made of duck and goose feathers, it comes with associated allergies. It also requires difficult after care, as dry cleaning is expensive and uses harsh chemicals that can have harmful long-term effects.
There are many alternatives to down on the market, but our down alternative here at MyOrganicSleep is derived from recycled plastic water bottles. The process begins in recycling centers, where batches of discarded plastic bottles are crushed into cubes. These blocks of plastic then undergo an intensive high pressure washing process to remove all dirt and contaminants. Cleansed and pure, the material gets melted. This liquid plastic is passed through a spinneret to form threads and injected with cold air to turn the material back into a solid. The fibers are finally crimped, chopped, and randomized for use as filling. The result is comparable to down in the way it fluffs up and retains heat, but more supple and heavy with a web-like mesh.
So why go for down alternative?
Here at MyOrganicSleep, our Down Alternative Comforter is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a warm, bulky insulation free of allergens or animal products.
