Oct 29, 2020

The right comforter can make a big difference in how well you sleep at night. However, with all the quality comforters that Brooklinen has to offer, figuring out which one is best for your unique sleeping needs can be tricky.

To help, we broke down the benefits of our comforters, so you can select the right one for you. From lightweight, down-filled styles to weighted ones and beyond, here’s everything you need to know about each and every one of Brooklinen’s award-winning comforters.

1. Down Comforters

Composed of a super soft 400-thread count, 100-percent long staple cotton sateen shell and a plush, down cluster fill, Brooklinen’s Down Comforters are treated with ultra-fresh antimicrobials and feature baffle box construction that ensures an even distribution of fluffiness and warmth. Knowing which one will work best for you depends entirely on how you sleep at night.

Lightweight Down Comforter: If you’re a hot sleeper, or searching for a summer weather-friendly comforter, then look no further than the Lightweight Down Comforter. Cozy but breathable, this comforter boasts a 650-fill power of recycled European down that provides cloud-like softness and comfort—sans the weight.

All-Season Down Comforter: Thanks to its 700-fill power of Canadian Duck down, the All-Season Down Comforter is suitable for year-round use. Not too warm nor lightweight, consider this comforter the Goldilocks of bed covers.

Ultra-Warm Down Comforter: In the market for an extra warm comforter that you can snuggle up to during the cold weather months? The Ultra-Warm Down Comforter features a super cozy Hutterite Goose Down fill, with a 750-fill power, making it perfect for cool sleepers (and curling up in throughout the winter).  


2. 
Down Alternative Comforters

Made with a 100-percent cotton sateen shell and shaved microfibers designed to mimic the exact texture of down, Brooklinen’s Down Alternative Comforters are great for allergy sufferers and those living a vegan lifestyle. They’re also budget-friendly, so you can sleep like a baby all night long without breaking your bank account.  

Lightweight Down Alternative Comforter: If you’re a hot sleeper looking for a featherweight comforter without any actual feathers, consider the Lightweight Down Alternative Comforter. Composed of recycled PET bottles that create the equivalent of a 650-fill power, this comforter is warm but breathable, and soft as a cloud.

All-Season Down Alternative Comforter: The most versatile of Brooklinen’s down alternative comforters, the All-Season Down Alternative Comforter features a 100-percent microfiber fill that makes it feel like a 700-fill power pure down style. Suitable for year-round use, this comforter is designed to provide warmth and comfort to both hot and cold sleepers alike.

Ultra-Warm Down Alternative Comforter: If you thought there was no such thing as a winter-proof down alternative comforter, then think again. The Ultra-Warm Down Alternative Comforter boasts a 100-percent microfiber fill that’s the equivalent of a 750-fill power, making it insanely soft and cozy, but safe for people who have severe allergies.


3. 
Weighted Comforter 

Designed with glass beads—instead of non-biodegradable plastic microbeads that can be bad for the environment—sewn into pockets throughout the fabric, the Weighted Comforter is designed to ensure weight is evenly distributed for deeper, more restful sleep. And thanks to its quilted 400 thread-count cotton sateen shell and weighted interior layer, you can rest assured that you’ll sleep soundly throughout the night, even if you toss and turn a lot or suffer from restless leg syndrome (RLS). Just remember to choose a weight that’s roughly 10-percent of your body weight—size up if you’re between sizes—so you can reap the full benefits of sleeping with a weighted comforter.
