Why does my Down Comforter have a scent?

The scent you're picking up on is natural for our Down products - and down in general! To help get rid of that smell, we recommend airing out your product by taking it out of the protective packaging and placing it outside on a dry day for a few hours.

You can also toss the item in the dryer on air fluff, no heat. We never recommend washing our item at home in the washing machine, as this will damage the down clusters. If you'd like, you can dry clean the item, but keep in mind that this will shorten its lifespan.

If the smell persists and is keeping you up, please feel free to reach out to us at hello@brooklinen.com and we'll work to find a solution!
