PlushBeds Natural Luxury Handmade Wool Comforter features Premium Eco-Wool® fill encased in organic cotton sateen. This comforter is lightweight and cozy, to keep you warm in winter, cool in summer, and comfortable all year round. It is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cali King sizes ranging from $359-$549.
PlushBeds market their comforter as “100% Chemical and Cruelty-Free”. This is because have a strict responsible wool assurance policy, using only wool from small sheep farmers in the US who act as humanely as possible towards their sheep (including not using mulesing, harmful shearing practices, or dipping). EcoWool is free from harsh scouring agents, dyes, bleach and chemicals, meaning that it is suitable for sensitive individuals. The wool is not subject to carbonization, a conventional technique where wool is dipped in strong acids to remove debris. Instead, PlushBeds use the cleanest parts of the fleece, cleaning this further by hand before washing it in a gentle, biodegradable detergent. The wool remains naturally soft and curly, without the need to ‘perm’ it with chemicals.
This wool comforter naturally wicks away moisture, making it a good option to keep you cool and dry in summertime and warm and cozy in winter. The wool is hand-tufted to help it stay in place. To clean the comforter cover, gently “spot clean” with a clean cloth and a few drops of mild detergent in a cup of water. Wipe detergent mixture away with a clean, damp cloth and let the cover air dry. Do not use a hair dryer to dry. These handmade wool comforters are custom-made, meaning that they are not returnable (unless there is a manufacturing defect).
PlushBeds are committed to providing “products you can feel good about, from start to finish” and to keeping their products “free of harmful chemicals, treating our source flocks humanely, and using sustainable land management practices”. PlushBeds also offer an annual $1,000 scholarship to a student seeking an “eco-degree”.
PlushBeds EcoWool Comforter vs. Holy Lamb
If you’re looking for an all-season wool comforter in an organic cotton case from an all-American company, this one from PlushBeds is a great choice. That said, Holy Lamb Organics offer a comparable comforter and appear to be just a tad more invested in sustainability (arguably, Rawganique are too, despite their lack of certifications). If animal ethics are a factor in your choice of wool duvet, Holy Lamb Organics is likely the top choice, with PlushBeds a good runner up.
