Other liken it to sleeping in an all plush bed, but everyone agrees that Hypodown assures a cozy night's sleep in lightweight, billowy luxury. With Hypodown by Ogallala you have a lot of choices. This guide is to help explain what hypodown is, how it works and how best to select the comforter that is just right for you.

Hypodown is an ingenious, creative, and purely natural product. It combines two of nature's most unique fibers to give you a tranquil, restful night's sleep. The Hypodown blend from Ogallala is four parts white goose down and one part Syriaca clusters, a fiber from the milkweed plant. The two work hand in hand to give you the best of their natural abilities: warmth and comfort.

Hypodown is Allergy-Free

Wake up with red, itchy eyes? Not with Hypodown. Research has proven that Syriaca clusters trap and suppress allergens found in down that cause allergic reactions. Allergy sufferers can sleep soundly with Hypodown. Guaranteed.

Hypodown is Fresh & Dry

Most people lose a liter of water each night. So where does it go? Under the wrong comforter, it doesn't go anywhere, and you're left feeling sticky and uncomfortable. But Hypodown keeps you fresh and dry. The Syriaca clusters in Hypodown are hollow, so Hypodown draws moisture away from your body and releases it into the air 30% more quickly than down and 70% faster than synthetics. Syriaca Clusters

Hypodown is Lightweight

Hypodown is the champion of durability with the added bonus of being lightweight. Roll it, flatten it, scrunch it, and pack it into a small suitcase. Take it out in the Alps, shake it, and Hypodown springs back into shape, fluffy as ever. And because Hypodown is also lightweight, it encourages circulation and offers a cozy night's sleep. Not to mention, it won't slow you down in the airport.

Hypodown is Clean, Fluffy & Comfortable

To make Hypodown, Ogallala searches the world over for the fluffiest, cleanest white goose down. They grow their own Syriaca and collect the finest pods. The processing team captures the largest Syriaca clusters and transfers them to the patented Hypodown blender. Forced air whirls and twirls the down and Syriaca to create Hypodown, the most comforting innovation in sleep.

Hypodown is the Highest Standard of Quality

Hypodown comforters are down-proof so that the down stays inside. A tight weave and special finishing process keep the down securely inside without stiff, chemical fillers. Down-proof fabric needs at least a 200 thread count. Hypodown comforters are made of 100% cotton fabric with thread counts ranging from 230 to 350.

Choosing the Right Fill Power for Your Hypodown Comforter

Down products aren't made entirely of down clusters. They are normally a mixture of down and feathers. By law, anything called "down" must contain at least 75 percent down cluster, and that percentage must be stated on the label. Ogallala comforters are made using the cleanest white goose down combined with natural Syriaca clusters. The higher the percentage of down, then the higher the fill power. Fill power refers to the space occupied by one ounce of down. Big, fluffy clusters have a higher fill power, so you don't need as much weight to keep warm. Ogallala's 800 fill power Hypodown comforter contains 95 percent down; the 700 fill power contains 85 percent; and the 600 fill power contains 75 percent. You make the choice and create a custom pillow especially for you.

Choosing the Right Weight for Your Hypodown Comforter

Everybody is unique. Some of us feel toasty even on the chilliest nights. Others run for the thermostat the minute the sun goes down. Luckily, there's a Hypodown comforter for everyone. If you're always cold, there's the Arctic weight. If you're comfortable in most surroundings, there's the Classic and Southernlite. If you're always hot, go with Southernlite.

Hypodown: Care & Maintenance

Once you choose the right Hypodown comforter, follow these tips for proper care and maintenance:

  • Always use an allergy relief duvet cover along with your decorative duvet cover to protect your Hypodown comforter from allergens and damage.
  • Dry your Hypodown comforter on low or hang in the sun to refresh.
  • The fewer times that Hypodown is cleaned, then the longer it will last.
  • To spot clean, use a mild detergent.
  • For major cleaning, use a professional cleaner familiar with down products.
  • Do not dry clean. The chemicals make down brittle and shorten its life.
  • Store in a breathable bag and in a dry, well ventilated area.
