While down comforters, mattress pads, and pillows may all appear similar from the exterior they are not; it is what is inside that really counts. The highest quality down originates from the belly and under wings of mature white geese raised and bred in the cold Siberian and Hungarian climates known for their resilient down. A special gathering process ensures larger, stronger down clusters to provide superior loft and insulating properties for those who seek weightless warmth. Down is a natural insulator and retains body heat in the harshest climates. It is practically lighter than air, allowing it to instantly adjust to your body temperature and ensures maximum breathability year round.
Down clusters are graded according to their fill power or loft, which gauges its ability to regain its original volume or loft after being compressed. The higher the fill power, the loftier, lighter and warmer the comforter. DownTown Company’s high fill power translates into a superior product that delivers a more comfortable night’s sleep for many years. Our hypoallergenic cleaning and sterilization process removes dust, dirt and other impurities that may cause allergic reactions; a unique washing and rinsing process guarantees that all DownTown Company products are thoroughly cleaned. DownTown Company offers a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship.

Silk is one of the oldest textile fibers. Pure silk is the queen of all natural fibers and has an important place in our modern world as we embrace all natural products. The organic structure of silk is very similar to human skin, allowing your skin to breathe. Silk has the ability to absorb moisture, making silk cool in the summer and warm in the winter. These factors contribute to a relaxing, healthy sleep.

Fiber Quality: The highest quality cotton is long staple cotton. Staple refers to the length of the cotton fiber; the longer the fiber the better because it creates stronger and finer yarns.
Yarn Size: The fineness of each yarn is what the term yarn size refers to; the higher the yarn size, the finer the yarn. Finer yarns allow for lighter, more supple fabric and more yarn can be woven into a square inch.
Finishing: The finishing process is vital in avoiding piling and increasing strength, luster, touch and appearance.
Thread count is simply the number of threads per square inch of fabric. These consist of vertical threads (warp) and horizontal threads (weft) woven together. Construction refers to how the thread count is achieved. The best fabric would be made with single ply yarns and have a single pick; but the highest thread count you can get with this type of construction is about 400. Above that, 2 ply yarns and/or multi picks must be used thus resulting in exaggerated thread count.
Don’t fall into the thread count trap… the quality of the cotton determines the quality of the product, not the thread count.
