Best Down Alternative Comforters
Alternative comforters are exactly what their name says, alternative. They are alternative to goose down comforters. While goose down may be the ideal comforter, your budget may want something a little more ideal in the price range, though this doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice on quality.
There are several different options when dealing with alternative comforters. The first is decided what kinda of fill material works for you. This ranges from rayon, to polyester, to cotton. Each material has their own unique quality.
Most Alternative Comforters have different warmth levels available. These help you with your own personal needs and area temperatures.
These are perfect for those summer nights when you want to be covered, but not really kept warm. I am one of those types of people that needs a little more than a sheet but nothing too heavy where I wake up in a pool of sweat.
Warmth Level 1
This is the more popular warmth level. It gives the warmth of 2 thick blankets but not too much to keep you sweating in the spring or fall.
Warmth Level 2
This level is the thickest and perfect for winter, especially in those northern states. These are also the heaviest in weight so that is something to consider depending on how much weight you like on you as you sleep.
Fabric type is also very important when decided on an alternative comforter. This also includes thread count. Much of the same considerations come into play as they did with the sheet guide. While I will mostly be comparing and review cotton fabric alternative comforters I also made a section for the popular Satin and Egyptian Cotton duvets as well.
While most of these comforters are great to use by themselves there is always the option for duvet use. This means you put the comforter inside of a, basically, well made fabric bag. There could be several reason to do this whether is be for looks or because the face of the comforter is worn down but still had a lot of use left in it.
I have put together several of my favorite alternative comforters that will hopefully be a help for your comforter buying experience. I have used both goose down and alternative comforters and have found both to have their pro’s and con’s. I will be able to give you a hands on description.

With its baffle box design it helps avoid any shifting that could occur over time. This design helps with those cold spots that pop up as well.

Its light weight, medium warmth is perfect for year round warmth. The fill itself is polyester and it great for those easy washes. Not to mention, great for those long cold nights.
It comes in several sizes, including those coveted oversize options.
Down Alternative for Duvet
This is also a great comforter for duvets. It comes pre-made duvets corner tabs to help keep it in place inside the duvet cover. That is something you really want to watch for when you are buying a comforter, is if it has the option to anchor inside a duvet.
