Can you believe that I’m in my 40’s, I live in frigid Upstate NY, and I’ve never owned a down comforter until now? I just don’t know what took me so long. Winters here are SO cold. I think I may have been intimidated by the care of down comforters. I thought you couldn’t wash them in the washing machine… and if I can’t wash it in my washing machine, I probably won’t buy it.
But, I read that this one was machine washable, so I thought I’d give it a try. The calendar might say it’s Spring, but here in Upstate NY, it’s still winter. And it will likely be winter until the end of May. The nights here are so cold, that we have our bed sheet, and two comforters on our bed. I replaced one comforter with this down comforter. So now we have a sheet, a regular (thin) comforter, and this down comforter.
And….HOLY HEAT! Something very rare happened. I woke up in the middle of the night literally sweating from this down comforter! We keep the house pretty cold at night (it’s more comfy to sleep in) AND we have the ceiling fan on above the bed when we sleep (Chris has to have moving air on him at all times…). The furnace usually doesn’t kick on too much overnight, so since it’s so cool in the house, we need both comforters to sleep in comfortably.
I had no idea how hot this down comforter would make us. The second night, I removed our other comforter, so we just had the sheet and the down comforter on us while sleeping. I woke up at about 4am, and had to stick my legs out to cool off.
Considering that I have to have a heated blanket on me 24/7 when I’m on the couch (even in the middle of summer..) I never thought I’d find a comforter that kept me warm enough. I’m seriously considering getting myself one of these for the couch and saving money on the electric from my heated blanket! Seriously – this down comforter acts like a heated blanket without the electricity.
We have the Full/Queen size comforter on our bed and it’s plenty big for our Queen sized bed. It’s so fluffy and lightweight, you would never expect this kind of heat from a comforter. If you have a hard time keeping warm, this is the comforter for you!
Right now you can purchase this down comforter on Amazon for just $39!
