ダウンとマイクロファイバーダウン代替品の比較

一般的に、羽毛布団はダウンまたはポリエステルダウン代替品で作られていますが、この二つに本当に大きな違いがあるのでしょうか?



ピンクの背景にある製品説明アイコンの隣にあるダウンクラスターダウンは、 アヒルまたはガチョウから取れる天然素材です。ダウンの品質はその ロフト、すなわちふわふわ感で示されます。これは、1立方オンスのダウンがどれだけのスペースを埋めるかによって計算されます。良質なダウンは、完全に成長した鳥から取れるため最高のロフトを持っています。

ダウンは、羽毛布団の素材の中で最高級と見なされ、その柔らかさと優れた断熱性が高く評価されています。少量のダウンで多くの暖かさを提供するため、ダウン布団は体に非常に軽いです。

その希少性、品質、成熟プロセスの長さから、ダウンは高価な買い物です。ダウンのロフトが高いほど、価格も高くなります。

少量で提供されるダウンの暖かさは、他の詰め物では匹敵しません。ダウン1オンスはマイクロファイバー1オンスよりも暖かいです。ダウン代替布団も同じくらいの暖かさを提供できますが、はるかに多くの詰め物が必要です。これにより、合成マイクロファイバー布団は重くなります。

青い背景にあるアイコンの隣のマイクロファイバー

マイクロファイバーはダウンのように柔らかいですが、感触がわずかに異なります。ダウンは多くの空気を閉じ込めるため、圧力を加えると大幅に圧縮されます。マイクロファイバーは密度が高く、空気をあまり閉じ込めないため、よりふっくらとした感触です。(ダウンを綿菓子に例えると、マイクロファイバーはマシュマロです。)

マイクロファイバーは天然ダウンに比べて大幅に安価です。また、家庭で洗えるため、手入れがはるかに簡単です。ダウンは湿気に非常に敏感で、ドライクリーニングまたは専門の洗濯が必要です。

Hi Commenter! That’s correct – cotton is natural while microfiber is synthetic! We haven’t compared those two materials here because one is a filling material and the other is a shell material. We only use cotton shells for all of our products.

Microfiber is made of polyester and nylon fibers where as cotton is a plant-based fabric. Microfiber is synthetic and cotton is a natural fabric.

Microfiber vs Cotton

Hi Marion, Not to worry – the key is not to sleep on the mattress topper directly, as it will cause premature wear and tear on the product. As long as your topper is under your fitted sheet, you’re good! If you have a mattress protector, even better. You can put your mattress and mattress topper inside the protector together! No special cover required.
This being said, if you receive a product you’re not happy with, we offer free returns within 30 days for unused product. You’re not stuck with it – just send it back :)

I just received my mattress topper, reading the instruction it says to have a cover on the topper, why wasn’t this stated before I bought the topper, covers are very expensive & I wouldn’t have bought it if I new ahead of time, I am upset about this & will not recommend the company or buy more of your products

I have an Eider down 100 percent “Pioneer” brand name, Canadian made sleeping bag. It consists of a heavy canvas outer shell,with a New Zealand heavy wool blanket interior, I would safety pin a king size flannel sheet to the four corners of the inside to allow easy remove all for washing. It was made a long time ago, for people who worked in the northern oil industry, which was just taking off in a big way. I also owned their eider down Parka, the parka and sleeping bag were guaranteed to keep you warm well below freezing.The Eider duck was not endangered in those days so it was legal for sale. Very expensive even then, due to the massive amount of Down not feather in the products they made.

I am a 41 year old man.
Never bought anything for a bed until I bought the micro fiber duvet.

OMG.

What a difference.
I have been having some of the best sleeps I have ever had.
So then I went one step further and bought the panda pillows to match my duvet.

Overall this has been one of my best purchases ever.

Ps. I shoved my king pillows into my queen covers. Lol.

That’s what happens when he buys bedding not her.
Lol

Purchased this product 2 weeks ago.
We love it! No more shoulder pain. It’s like sleeping on a cloud. Waking up well rested.

Hi Krista, Both down and microfiber should re-loft after each use. They shouldn’t really get flat, although over a long time, microfiber can clump a bit. We don’t have a down-filled mattress topper – in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that! Our feather bed is filled mostly with feather, with just a small layer of down on top as a buffer against the feather. When trying to decide between the feather bed and a poly bed, I would think about the feel you’re looking for, as the two are very different! Feather beds are firm and supportive due to the springy feather quills, whereas poly beds are soft and sinky.

Hi Glenna, Natural down and feather products should be dry cleaned. Down and feather is very sensitive to moisture. If any moisture at all is left inside the duvet, mold, mildew and other bacteria can develop. If it absolutely must be washed, we recommend bringing to a professional cleaner who has experience with down and feather products. The care instructions for our products can be found on the product packaging and on the Care tab on the product page!

Hi Judy, Great question! Goose and duck down are not really different in terms of quality or overall feel. I wouldn’t worry too much about species when choosing a product. You’ll want to look at loft as the measure of down quality. You can find both goose and duck down in low and high lofts! The easiest way to compare the species of all of our products is to check the Product Comparison Chart! Duck down is less expensive than goose down because it is less scarce. We offer duck down as a lower cost, but comparative quality alternative to goose down. In terms of warmth, neither down species nor loft (quality) will determine the warmth of your product. You’ll want to check our warmth ratings (Summer, Regular, All Season and Winter) for that! You can find recommended temperature ranges for each warmth rating in the product description, in our Guide to Duvet Warmth blog post, or in our FAQ & Help Center!

What is the difference between geese and duck down? Which one is warmer? Are the price the same for a geese down vs duck down? Are your products always labeled whether they are geese or duck down?

Judy

How do you clean a down duvet! Laundry? Dry clean?

Glenna Bell

What will keep its shape and fluff better for a mattress topper? I don’t want it getting flat. Don’t know if down or microfiber would be better

Krista

Why do the microfibre and gel microfibre duvets have much shorter warranties (5 years) compared to some of the down duvets (30 years)? Durability?

Shaun

Hi Deb, The name of the product is Microfiber Down Alternative Duvet. It is filled with 100% microfiber polyester (there is no down in the fill). Microfiber is soft and fluffy like down. It is a synthetic ‘down alternative’. In other words, its an alternative option to natural down. I hope this helps clarify :)

Canadian Down & Feather Company

I was looking at a 35.00, down micro fiber comforter. That’s how it is worded. Is it down? If not , why do they put down in their discription?
