||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
its 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 in the autumn sky. Light-weight, buoyant,
and moisture resistant, Syriaca clusters were also used
in life jackets in World War II.

Empress Hypodown Comforter
The quality of my bedding has always been very important to me. I have heirloom linens and blankets passed to me from my great grandmother that have been held for
years in a cedar chest specifically created to preserve these precious family treasures. After sleeping with The Ogallala Empress Comforter, I see myself
passing this luxurious bedding on to my daughter.
The Empress Hypodown Comforter is in essence the finest quality comforter that I have ever owned. The outer 350-thread count
Egyptian cotton shell houses a hypoallergenic blend of syriaca and goose down. I live in Georgia and have chosen the
Southern weight and the 700 fill power as I'd like to use it year-round. I have always owned sewn down comforters; however, the Empress is baffled, allowing the loft of the down to
remain fluffy like a cloud. I have not put a duvet cover over my Empress Hypodown Comforter as the stitching design is impressive enough, it really adds that final
touch to my bedroom.
What I like about the Hypodown Empress Comforter:
What I do not like about Hypodown Empress Comforter:
- Luxurious heirloom quality
- Custom tailored weight and fill power
- Pairs seamlessly with my Hypodown Pearl White Pillows for a complete hypoallergenic sleeping environment
- Baffled, not sewn, for consistent fullness
- I wish it were a little less expensive, but in this case you get what you pay for.
How to Select Your Comforter
First, choose your bed size. The Empress Hypodown Comforter is available in
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 800 is the most luxurious option, the quality you might
find in a fine hotel. The 800 fill power contains 95% goose down.
These are superb quality comforters.
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.
The Empress Hypodown Comforter is available in three weights: Arctic, Classic, and
Southern. A queen size Arctic weight contains 22 oz. more down than
a queen size Southern weight, 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 southern weight in fill power 700.
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 weight in fill power 800, or the Classic in fill power
If you are most often cold at night, you'll want a toasty warm
comforter: consider a Classic weight in fill power 800, or an Arctic
weight in fill power 700 or 800.
