Get Down with Down Comforters

Nov 21, 2013

‘Down’ is a term used to describe the warm and fluffy coating that protects birds from exposure to the elements, also commonly found in blankets, pillows, and comforters. Down is able to retain the right degree of warmth- not too cold or too hot, and is thus considered one of the most popular and perfect products for comfortable winter and year round bedding. Down bedding options vary dramatically with different qualities, products, and prices. The ultimate in down luxury are those products made from 100% pure white good down. Homesense offers a great selection of down-filled products including cozy comforters, and is located only five minutes away from our 321 Marland Avenue apartments.

Cozy Wool Blankets
Wool blankets are a great staple for winter comfort. Wool is a unique fabric that is able to retain warmth even when wet due to the natural lanolin in the wool (it is also fire resistant). Wool is fiber derived from the hair of sheep that is spun into threads and then woven into a variety of different grades, weights, and qualities. Investing in a great wool blanket is a great idea for winter as it has amazing insulating properties. Pure wool blankets must be dry-cleaned, so a wool-blend that you can throw in the wash may be more convenient. For a durable yet contemporary wool blanket, check out Urban Barn, located less than a five-minute drive away from our 349 Marland Avenue apartments.

Silk Dreams
Silk is one of the world’s most luxurious fabrics. A silk-filled, silk-covered comforter is a truly one-of-a-kind feeling with a sense of indulgence and softness like no other. Silk is a breathable and lightweight fabric that conforms to the body while still being hypoallergenic. Silk sheets, pillowcases, and comforters must be dry-cleaned.

Fabulous Flannel
Flannel is iconic in winter bedding due to its incredible warmth and softness for such a lightweight fabric. Flannel sheets are easily cared for, and can be put in the washer and dryer. Flannel sheets are not the most practical for hot summer months, so bear that in mind when shopping. Home Outfitters, located less than 10 minutes away from our Oshawa communities, is a great place to find flannel bedding at a great price.  We hope you get a great night’s sleep even in the cold Canadian winter with these bedding options that will keep you cozy all season long.
