What Amazon Reviewers Say: “Best Duvet Ever: This is by far the most comfortable and warm duvet I’ve ever had. I ordered and returned a few before I found this one. I am in love with it…It’s perfect for Canadian winters.”
The Best Tencel Comforter: Buffy Cloud
We’re a big fan of Buffy’s Breeze comforter (which combines an elegant design with a cozy, eco-friendly fill), and though it’s sold out on Amazon, the brand’s original Cloud Comforter is still available there. The outer lining is sourced with Buffy’s signature cooling lyocell fabric, which is silky soft and made from natural eucalyptus fibers. The only thing is: In our testing, we’ve found that despite being billed as a cooling comforter, both of Buffy’s offerings tend to run very warm. The Cloud, especially, which uses PET recycled plastic fill often used in wintery down-alternative jackets, isn’t going to cool you down. Hot sleepers beware, but if your home feels like an icebox in winter, this one will at least keep you from shivering.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “I live in South Florida and need a fluffy alternative down comforter. This one is fluffy and soft and wonderful without being hot. Has held up very well for the last month.”
The Best Down-Alternative Comforter: Brooklinen
Brooklinen—the bedding brand so nice it appears here twice. If the company’s All Season comforter sounded nice in theory but you just couldn’t stomach the thought of all those baby geese missing their down feathers, then you’ll be much happier with the down-alternative version, which uses microfiber crafted from recycled plastic. This comforter is hypoallergenic, vegan, and over $100 less than the original. On top of that, to match the Brooklinen early Black Friday sale, an on-page coupon lets Prime members save 20% on this product.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “Wonderful: Love this comforter. It is lightweight and seems to know just how much warmth is needed for a good nights sleep. So glad we treated ourselves to this.”
The Best Weighted Comforter: Baloo Heavy Quilted Comforter
Weighted blankets really are dreamy, and we had to include one of our favorites in this guide, as well. If you already have a weighted blanket for your couch, then get the Baloo quilted duvet comforter for your bed and enjoy the same warm and fuzzy feeling while you sleep. We’d recommend pairing this with a matching duvet cover, as it comes with 12 loops around the edges to keep it in place. Since most duvet inserts only have four corner tabs, this weighted blanket is guaranteed to stay where it’s supposed to while you sleep.
What Amazon Reviewers Say: “This blanket is amazing. My husband and I love it! We only wish we’d ordered the larger size as we pull it off each other.”
The Best Fleece-Lined Comforter: Ugg Blissful Sherpa Set
Ugg is a brand that needs no introduction, and as its selling point has always been comfort, cozy bedding feels like a natural extension. If you’re looking for a comforter to pair with your flannel sheets for the most blissful possible hibernatory experience this winter, then consider this one from the Ugg Bedding Collection. It’s basically like a sherpa jacket for your bed, with soft-to-the-touch microfleece on the inside, and soft sherpa fabric on the other. The set also comes with two matching pillowcase shams. (If you really want your bed to look like a sherpa jacket, for some reason, check out the Fawn color of this sheet set, which is in stock at Nordstrom.)
