Everyday Care

For everyday care of your down comforters and pillows, just shake it out to get the air into the down.


Our down products can be washed in a large enough vat to comfortably hold the product. If you’re washing a large comforter, then a commercial washing machine and dryer will work best. Wash with warm water and your favorite detergent.


Dry thoroughly in a hot dryer, and periodically rearrange the product to be sure it is drying evenly. Heavy drying balls will help to break up the damp clumps. Depending on the dryer, it may take 1-2 hours to dry.

Make sure there are no damp areas left, and your down item will be lofty again.
