Primaloft Alternative Down Comforter and Pillow
Primaloft is a hypoallergenic fiber which mimics down in comforters and pillows. As such, it is perfect for the allergy sufferer and what's more it is a fraction of the price of real down bedding. It is very soft and lofty. So as you can imagine, it is very popular with our website visitors. In theory, you can also wash it, and the label on the comforter gives precise instructions as to how to go about doing that.
A Primaloft comforter will give you good honest wear, as long as you put it inside a duvet cover to minimize the need to clean it. What's more when you clean it DO NOT wash it in your washing machine at home. Most home washing machines are too small and the comforter will come out lumpy (read "ruined"). The same advice applies to Primaloft pillows. While a Primaloft comforter could give you several years wear if treated with care, a Primaloft pillow will last 18 months to 2 years before losing its loft and going completely flat. Primaloft is delightfully soft and is very reasonably priced, but do not make the mistake of thinking it either has the lasting power of a top quality down comforter or indeed the warmth of an artic weight down comforter. We believe that many people in the Northeast would not find that Primaloft comforters are warm enough in winter.
