    This is a great post to find. Another thing I look for is if it has to be dry cleaned or not. I would much rather wash/dry at home than lug a comforter to the dry cleaner. Thanks for sharing these things too! We’re about due for a new comforter. I want something with more color.

    Thanks for the tips. I think I should look into a bamboo comforter for us. My husband is always warm and sweats like crazy and I am always cold. So bamboo might be the best for us. he really needs a comforter that breathes. Thanks!
