Whether it's summer weather all year round, or your bedroom just feels like it, this lightweight 550-fill-power comforter from Pottery Barn helps keep you feeling pleasantly cool. Lower-fill-power comforters can feel flimsy next to denser types, but because of its quality white-down and feather fiber fill and end-to-end box-stitching, this one maintains its loft, while holding the feathers in place. This piece is also Oeko-Tex-certified, and its 300-thread-count cotton cover increases breathability, even when slipped inside of a duvet cover.
Not so obvious is the special way these quilts are produced. At a time when practically every textile product sold in America is made in a sweatshop in Asia, these Amish quilts are made one at a time in people's American homes. What's more, these quilts are made using just the technology that was in common use 150 years ago. Because of the extensive handwork most women only take part in producing a couple of quilts each year.
Features: The first detail we noticed was the 1200 thread count. While everyone loves Egyptian cotton and high thread counts in beds sheets, it is a draw to find this amazing 1200 thread count in a down comforter. Add the 750+ fill power with the Egyptian cotton, and you are floating in luxury. Striped damask is lightly embellished over a well made batting.

Construction of a true down comforter will make or break the quality. You may not notice it immediately, but after awhile a poorly made down comforter will shift, creating a flatness and empty areas where there is no warmth. There are different techniques used in making a down comforter. It is important to know about processes such as baffling and stitching. Information about the construction of the down comforter should always be listed on the label. Here are the techniques commonly used:

The Nemo Siren Down Ultralight quilt is with a weight of 540 grams even lighter than the Sea to Summit Ember EB III quilt, but on the other hand also less insulated – it has a lower limit rating of -1°C. The quilt has a super lightweight shell which is made of 10-denier ripstop nylon and treated with DWR in order to repel water rather than absorbing it. The insulation layer uses a high-grade 850-fill power down and thus provides great loft and warmth. The quilt has a lacing system on the underside so that you can easily attach it to a sleeping pad. Another great feature is the insulated collar which comes around your shoulders and prevents cold drafts. The quilt comes with a stuff sack and measures only 25 x 25 centimeters when packed.


Amish quilts are entirely hand quilted. The quilt top, batting, and quilt backing fabric are sandwiched together and held taut in a quilting frame. The quilter then uses needle and thread to place each quilting stitch in the quilt. A typical queen size bed quilt will have forty to fifty thousand such stitches. The quilting stitches are small (6 to 12 per inch), straight and uniform. To insure uniformity all the quilting for each quilt is done by one quilter.

With a 650 fill power, this style from JCPenney is a great option for year-round use. If you're looking for more warmth, this comforter is also available in Level 1 (600 fill power) or Level 3 (700 fill power) options. The 100% cotton cover has a 350 thread count, which is great for preventing down from poking through. It's machine washable (as long as there's enough room for it to move freely) and it has a baffle-box construction to keep the down evenly distributed. Keep an eye out for a sale on this one; it's rarely sold at its listed price.
Just keep in mind that it may also be one of the higher-maintenance picks out there, as Brooklinen doesn't recommend machine-washing or dry cleaning this comforter. It should periodically be shaken out outdoors, spot-cleaned in the event of a spill, or dry-cleaned as a last resort. It can also be fluffed in the dryer to revive its loftiness. The comforter is available to buy in twin, full/queen, and king/California king sizes.
