Down Bedding vs. Synthetic: What You Need to Know From DOWNLITE, Mason, Ohio

If you’re in the market for new bedding, the color isn’t the only decision that you have to make. For years, DOWNLITE has been helping Ohio sleep better with their superior down bedding products. DOWNLITE is Mason’s number one stop for down comforters, pillows, and everything else you need to make your bed a cozy escape. DOWNLITE sells high-quality products that their customers love, guaranteeing you have a good night’s sleep. When buying a new comforter, it’s important to understand the different types of material available.

The professionals at DOWNLITE share some of the differences between down and synthetic comforter materials:

  • Warmth: There are no man-made fibers that have better insulating qualities than down. Down comforters provide exceptional levels of warmth, and their light-weight feel keeps you warm without weighing you down. Synthetic comforters, however, try to replicate the warmth of down but are heavy and trap air. Down comforters have the best warmth-to-weight ratio.
  • Comfort:DOWNLITE Down pillows contain 25% feathers and 75% down, the fleecy fibers that are found underneath duck and goose feathers. This ratio makes down pillows a softer alternative to synthetic options. That fluffy softness means that down pillows don’t offer much neck support, however, so it is recommended that people with neck pain choose a down pillow that has a higher volume of fill.
  • Comparing Costs: Down comforters and pillows offer a luxurious sleep experience, and on average, cost more than synthetic options. The overall cost depends on several variables, including the volume of the fill and purity of the down. When you shop at DOWNLITE, however, you’ll find high-quality down bedding at competitive prices that won’t keep you up at night.
