Buffy Comforter Materials

This is a great comforter for temperature regulation, so let’s see what all went into the Buffy Cloud.

Cover

The outer shell of the Buffy Cloud comforter is made from a material called Tencel lyocell. This is a fabric derived from wood pulp from eucalyptus trees. It has been woven to feel rather soft and has a thread count of 300.

Tencel lyocell is naturally breathable and it has some moisture-wicking properties to it. This is great news for hot sleepers because it means you shouldn’t feel hot and sweaty under this comforter.
The cover has a quilted stitching pattern to keep the fill evenly distributed.

The Buffy Comforter Pattern

Fill

The Buffy Cloud is a down alternative comforter. On the inside you’ll find a rather unique down alternative. Buffy sources recycled plastic bottles from landfills that have been shredded to make the fill for its comforters.

It feels very fluffy and soft through the cover. And for all of the earth-friendly shoppers out there, the recycled materials are a huge plus!

Warmth

The Buffy Cloud is more of a cooling comforter. However, it still does provide some warmth. When I was resting under this comforter, I was at a comfortable temperature.

I think this comforter should be great for year round use. It’s got some cooling components to make it great for summer months, but can provide good warmth for the winter months.

Allergies/Allergens?

Down alternative comforters are known to be hypoallergenic. These fills don’t tend to trap allergens in your sleep environment the way down clusters would.

Sleeping With the Buffy Comforter

As a hot sleeper, I tend to only use comforters in the middle of winter, when the temperature at night gets really low.

However, using the Buffy Cloud, I felt like I was at a constant comfortable temperature. Because this comforter has a cover made from Tencel, it’s got a good amount of temperature regulation. It’s breathable and moisture-wicking.

If you’re the type of person who gets cold quickly, this is still a great comforter to keep the constant chill away!

Caring for the Buffy Comforter

Here’s how you care for your Buffy Comforter:

It is fully machine washable! Start in the washing machine with cold water and detergent of your choice. When done, you will need to hang dry.

If you’d like to keep the comforter clean, you can always add a duvet cover and machine wash that.

How does the Buffy Cloud Compare to other Comforters?

It’s always a good idea to keep your options open. Let’s see how the Buffy Cloud compares to other comforters on the market.

Buffy vs Casper

Down comforters don’t always perform the same way down alternative comforters do. If you’re a fan of down comforters, Casper’s Humidity Fighting Duvet is one of our favorites.

RELATED: Best Comforters

The biggest difference between the Casper duvet and the Buffy comforter is that you’ll find down clusters from cruelty-free farms inside the Casper duvet. The Buffy Cloud uses recycled materials to make the fluff found inside its comforter.

Casper Humidity Fighting Duvet - Side Sleeping

Both comforters should be good for hot sleepers, but they use different materials to do so. The Buffy Cloud is full of Tencel, which is made from eucalyptus fibers. The Casper duvet features merino wool, which is breathable and moisture-wicking, just like Tencel.

Despite “duvet” being in its name, the Casper duvet is more akin to a comforter with its sewn through pattern. Both the Casper duvet and the Buffy Cloud can be used as duvet inserts.

Both comforters are machine washable! No need for dry cleaning here. And finally, the Casper Duvet comes in two warmth options, while Buffy’s only has one.

Who Should Get a Buffy Comforter?

  • Fans of down alternative comforters
  • Eco-conscious shoppers

Who Should Get the Casper?

Buffy vs Layla

Another down alternative comforter I’ve encountered is the Layla comforter. However, that’s where the similarities stop between these two comforters.

Layla’s features a cotton outer shell, while Buffy’s is made from eucalyptus fabric. It can take less water to grow eucalyptus, and with the recycled water bottles inside of the Buffy Cloud, this is a much more eco-friendly option.

Inside of Layla’s comforter you’ll find their Cluster Loft material. This is a microfiber material that provides a good amount of fluff and warmth. If you get cold quickly, or are looking for something to retain heat well, Layla’s comforter could be a better choice.

Layla does mention that the comforter is intended for year round use, but if you’re a hot sleeper, I would recommend the Buffy.

Who Should Get a Buffy Comforter?

  • Hot sleepers
  • Eco-conscious shoppers

Who Should Get a Layla Comforter?

  • Fans of cotton comforters
  • People who get cold quickly

Company Policies for the Buffy Comforter

I’ve read the fine print so you don’t have to. Here’s what you can expect when you buy from Buffy.

I should note, however, that Buffy will ask for payment information and place a hold or a temporary transaction before you keep or return the comforter during those seven days.

FAQs

I’ve gathered some of the most frequently asked questions about the Buffy Cloud, and other Buffy products to give you the most information!

How long do Buffy comforters last?

Buffy sells two comforters: the Buffy Cloud, which is what this review was about, and the Buffy Breeze, which is a thinner comforter intended for hotter climates, warmer months, and extremely hot sleepers.

Both comforters are made with eucalyptus and recycled materials that are long lasting. With good care, Buffy says your comforter can last you at least 15 years.

Does the Buffy comforter need a cover?

No! Buffy sells its comforters to be used as is. However, if you’re looking for color options, or want to expand the life of your comforter, you can attach a duvet cover to the corner loops.

What if I don’t like my Buffy comforter?

Buffy will let you test out one of its comforters for free with a seven-day trial period! After that, if you keep it, you have 30 days to make returns or exchanges.
