A bedroom goose down comforter is a soft, warm, light quilt, filled with down from waterfowl like geese or ducks. Its breathable insulation means that it can be warm in winter and cool enough for summer. There is a wide variety of bedroom goose down comforters available, ranging from those made with duck down and feathers to those made from synthetic down alternatives. Of all the down comforters, though, goose down is the most luxurious. Goose down grows thicker and in bigger clusters than duck down, resulting in a higher-quality comforter. Unlike duck down comforters, goose down does not have an unpleasant odor. In fact, they have virtually no smell at all. There is some variety among bedroom goose down comforters. At the low end of the spectrum are the down and feather mixed comforters. While it is virtually impossible to completely remove feathers from down, the less feathers the better.
Feathers are heavier and harder than down, leading to firmer comforters. Down is much more lightweight, creating a fluffier product. In addition, goose feathers are sharp and can poke through the cover to prick your skin. For those with allergies, hypoallergenic goose down comforters are available. Hypodown comforters, for example, are made from a mix of Hungarian goose down and milkweed. Bedroom goose down comforters are available from fine department and linen stores and from many online outlets.
