Things to Look for When Buying a Down Comforter

Millie Kwan - Wednesday, September 14, 2011
Although cleaning down items usually is not a problem, a comforter with poor construction and insufficient quilting can cause the down to shift, lose shape, or become matted.

Inspect the comforter for these things before purchasing:
  • Make sure the comforter is well-quilted. Quilting stitches should run both vertically and horizontally with quilting lines about 8–10 inches apart.
  • Check the strength of the stitching. Comforters with loose stitching can allow the down to shift.
  • Check for fullness in the quilted areas. Thicker filling will provide more insulation.


At the end of winter, don't forget to have it cleaned before putting it away for the next winter. Schedule a free pick and delivery service with Sarni Cleaners, and we'll clean and store it for you.
