"We just received this comforter after ordering it four days ago! As the weather is finally cool enough for down in New England, this came just in time. We labored over whether to buy the 700 or 800 fill due to our concerns over being too hot with the 800 fill. Well, this works for both of us but my ..."

Description of Harvester Hypodown Hypoallergenic Down Comforters
The Harvester's unbleached, undyed, chemical-free 312-thread count fabric makes this hypoallergenic comforter the perfect choice for a natural night's sleep. These comforters not only feel great but look great too. They are edged with cambric cotton piping and stitched with a simple yet elegant baffled box design. The Harvester Comforter rests in perfect harmony with the environment with its natural cotton cover and pure natural Hypodown fill. Regular goose down can cause allergic reactions in some people, which is why we love the Hypodown comforters that are guaranteed by the manufacturer to be hypoallergenic. Hypodown fill is a mix of pure Hungarian goose down and Syriaca clusters. Syriaca (commonly known as milkweed) is the only natural material that suppresses down's allergic qualities while simultaneously increasing its loft and insulation. The resulting blend is lightweight and wicks moisture away from your body far more quickly than either down or synthetics. Cuddle up with the Harvester Comforter for a cozy, natural and comfortable sleep.

Note: Hypodown has been tested in the offices of Allergy and Asthma Doctors in the United States and Europe. These tests prove that most people who are allergic to down can use Hypodown without reactions.
Note: Many down comforters found in retail stores have fill powers of 550 or less.
Thread count of comforter: These beautiful unbleached, chemical-free, hypo-allergenic Hypodown comforters have a 312 thread count cambric cotton cover. Thread count is the number of threads per inch of a fabric. The higher the count, the smoother and silkier the fabric feels. The higher thread count also provides a stronger barrier to any of the fill escaping from the comforter.
Comforter fill: Hypodown comes in different fill powers which is the technical term for the space one ounce of down occupies in cubic inches. The higher the fill power, the better the clusters are at trapping air and keeping you warm. Higher fill power also gives you more warmth with a lighter weight comforter. These down comforters are sold in two fill powers: 700 fill and 800 fill. The Hypodown mix consists of 80% Pure Hungarian Goose Down and 20% Syriaca Clusters. The 80% of down in the 800 fill comforter contains 95% large plumule down clusters and only 5% of down plumule pieces. The 80% of down in the 700 fill comforter contains 85% large plumule down clusters and 15% of down plumule pieces. See the Harvester 800 Fill Hypodown comforters.
The down and syriaca in these comforters is the cleanest, least treated fibers we could find anywhere. The down is de-dusted and gently washed up to 8 times in an environmentally friendly cleansing solution and rinsed three times. This cleaning process and renders the down pH neutral. These are the most hypoallergenic down comforters we could find - due to the quality of materials used, cleaning process and the addition of the natural syriaca clusters.
Expert Review: Courtesy of AllergyBuyersClub.com
Down comforters appeal to people who like the “puffy” look, and the Hypodown line is as good as it gets for those of us who are allergic to down. It is a fusion of down and Syriaca which in part explains its unusual hypoallergenic properties. I would always buy an 800-fill regardless of weight, but economize on the covering, as you still must keep this comforter in a duvet cover. Think about it, once a comforter is in its duvet cover you will never know the difference in the fabric shell. If you are in a southern climate the “Summer” weight is the one you should get, but the rest of us are best off with “Classic.” While not the cheapest comforter you can buy, these are warranted for a lifetime of 10 years, so are clearly made to last. (Prices start at $306.00 for the Hypodown Monarch Down Comforter.)
Whichever style of Hypodown comforter you buy, which is a matter of taste, you are not going to be disappointed. This manufacturer makes beautifully constructed comforters where there have been no shortcuts in any part of the fabrication process. The most important part of a down comforter is the quality of its fill which we recommend should be 700 or 800 fill weight for the lightest, fluffiest, and best insulating down. The next important feature is the quality of manufacturing and its construction, which you find in Hypodown is box baffling which makes sure the down has enough room to remain lofted but does not shift around. We have used these comforters for years and only after years of use do you even see the barest of wear on the stitching. To avoid any wear at all cover the comforter at all times with a duvet cover and that will offer it protection and you will not have to have it cleaned. Of course in my household, husbands with coffee spills and animals on the bed mean that the comforter is showing some wear but more our fault than the manufacturers.
For allergy sufferers, the cleanliness and hypoallergenic properties of the down is paramount, and the Hypodown Collection does it better than most because it introduces a tiny amount of Syriaca into the down, which in turn enhances its hypoallergenic properties. You do not need the most expensive covering; this comforter will last more than a lifetime if given proper care and that means putting it into a duvet cover so it is protected. For most people the Monarch covering is the most effective choice since it is still soft and supple whereas the Harvester can be a bit stiff and crackly. The Pearl Crescent is actually our most popular style because it is out and out the most puffy and luxurious.
We recommend the “Classic Weight” for most people most of the time. The “Artic” is just too warm for words and most people would find it oppressive. The “Southern’ is perfect for warmer weather climates and during summer up in New England.
Most important of all in my personal opinion, is that Hypodown comforters are cruelty free and the down is not “hand harvested” but the down is collected naturally as part of the molting process. Hand harvesting is banned in some countries and for good reason- how shall I put it bluntly? Live birds are strung up and plucked till they are bare and bleeding and shrieking as the down and feathers drop into collector bins below. Hypodown is collected in a way that is cruelty free, so animal lovers need not feel guilty when they buy one.
These are beautiful comforters and will keep you warm and toasty as only down can do while not provoking an allergic reaction. It does not get better than that.
