Why choose a machine washable comforter?

More often than not, specialist fabrics need extra care when it comes to getting them squeaky clean. But if you opt for a machine washable comforter, you’ll save a lot of time, effort and money on hand washing and dry cleaning.

As wool is already super hygienic and naturally clean, you’ll probably find that you don’t need to wash your comforter as often as you think. But we’re still human, which means we’re only one breakfast in bed away from a nasty stain! With a washable wool duvet, one simple wash will do the trick - and your cozy comforter will be as good as new.

Finding the best washable comforter for you

Most comforters made from synthetic fibers are machine washable, but will need cleaning more than natural, organic fillings like wool. As well as not being particularly practical, washing your comforter too often can have an impact on its quality, leaving both the filling and the cover a little bit lifeless.

With a washable comforter made from wool, you’ll only need to give it a good clean once or twice a year, and you can guarantee that the fluffy, soft luxury of it won’t disappear. Whatever it is you’re looking for in your washable bedspread, wool can offer an all-natural, hypoallergenic sleep that promises comfort and quality from the second you shut your eyes.

How to wash a comforter

So, after you’ve found the best washable comforter and you’ve spent a few months sleeping soundly with it, how do you go about getting it fresh and sparkling again?

When thinking about how to wash a comforter, it doesn’t need to be an all-day laundry job. For the best results, there are a couple of key things to remember.

  • Choose the most delicate wash cycle available on your machine. This will usually say ‘hand wash’, ‘hygiene wash’ or ‘gentle wash’. If you have a ‘wool’ setting, even better! If not, anything that offers a 20 or 30 degree wash will do the job.
  • Ensure that your machine is set to a medium or high speed cycle. This will give your comforter the quick spin it needs to drain as much of the water out as possible.
  • Add biodegradable detergent or - for the highest quality clean – wool wash. You can buy this from our website.

How to dry a comforter

So once your comforter is looking (and smelling) clean, you’ve now got to think about how to dry a comforter in the right way. The most important thing to remember here is: avoid the dryer at all costs.

As tempting as it is to toss it straight into the dryer like you normally would with any other laundry, there are no perks to doing it. Not only do you run the risk of shrinking your duvet, but the top condition quality of the wool fibers will suffer. Instead, air it out naturally on the line or hang it up somewhere warm in your home. It might take a while, but what you’ll be left with is an extra-soft, ultra-clean comforter that smells like a dream.
