||What is Hypodown?
answer is that Hypodown is an 80%/20% mix of fine Hungarian
goose down and naturally hypoallergenic Syriaca
clusters. The long answer is that the makers of Hypodown search for goose
down that is the fluffiest and cleanest in the world.
Then, they grow their own Syriaca plants, collect the
finest pods, capture large Syriaca clusters, and
transfer them to their patented Hypodown blender. It
uses bursts of air to combine the Syriaca clusters and
the goose down into a material so intimate it cannot be
separated. An airy cloud-soft combination of two natural
fibers to give you a tranquil, restful night's sleep.
|Hypodown is hypoallergenic
Goose down can cause allergic reactions for some people.
However, it is not the down itself you are allergic to,
but remaining particles of dust and dirt that are inside
the down. Hypodown offers the cleanest down available,
tested by allergy doctors in the United States, Hungary,
and Germany. Each test concludes that people who are
allergic to down can use Hypodown with no allergic
|Innovative and natural Syriaca
Syriaca clusters are what gives Hypodown
it's unique properties. The hollow fibers inside the
Syriaca clusters aid in moisture transfer, wicking
moisture away from your body 30% faster than just down
alone. And, Syriaca clusters are durable and warm. They
also help to trap and stabilize the components in down
which can cause allergic reactions.
Syriaca clusters come from the plant commonly known as
milkweed, naturally cultivated on Nebraska farms. You
may have seen their fluffy, silky clusters like
parachutes through the autumn sky. Light-weight, buoyant,
and moisture resistant, Syriaca clusters were also used
in life jackets in World War II.
Avalon Hypodown Comforter
Allergy-free bedding has always been necessary for me. I have severe dust mite allergies, and I'm a hot sleeper. The Avalon Hypodown Comforter has been the answer
to both of these night-time miseries.
Living in the south, I have never been able to sleep comfortably with a duvet on my bed; I have always used a sheet paired with a light hypoallergenic
blanket. My wife has always wanted to dress up our bedroom by adding a comforter to our bed, insisting we would remove it when it's time to go to sleep. The Avalon
Hypodown Comforter in the Southernlite weight was the perfect choice. It's hypoallergenic and so lightweight and breathable that we need not remove it
when we sleep; it's perfect!
What I like about the Avalon Hypodown Comforter:
What I do not like about the Avalon Hypodown Comforter:
- Custom tailored weight and fill power
- Baffled, not sewn, for consistent fullness
- Light and breathable
- The Avalon comforter in the Southernlite weight is really only suited for warm climates or hot sleepers. However, the Avalon comes in other weights suited for any climate.
How to Select Your Comforter
First, choose your bed size. The Avalon Hypodown Comforter is available in
Crib, Twin, Queen, King, and Super King. Dimensions are shown below.
2. Fill power
Fill power is the space that one ounce of down occupies in cubic
Hypodown 700 is the most popular choice and above the quality found
in many department stores. The down cluster content is 85% and the
fill power is excellent. These are excellent quality comforters.
Hypodown 600 is higher than the industry standard. Fill power is
above average and down cluster content is 75%. These are high
The Avalon is available in three weights: Classic,
Southern, and Southernlite. A queen size Classic contains 16 oz. more down than
a queen size Southernlite, so you'll want to make sure that you
choose the comforter that is the right level of warmth for you.
If you are generally hot while you sleep, you'll want a lightweight
comforter: consider the Southernlite weight in fill power 600 or 700, or the
Southern in fill power 600.
If you are usually comfortable at night and live in a temperate and
mild climate, you may be interested in mid-range choice: consider
the Southern in fill power 700 or the Classic in fill power 700.
If you are most often cold at night, you'll want a warmer
comforter: consider a Classic in fill power 700.
