If you want a comforter that's breathable enough for warm months, but cozy enough for cold months, the Saatva All-Year Down Alternative comforter is for you. This luxurious feeling comforter features both down alternative and lyocell on the inside which keeps you cozy, but won't overheat!

Saatva Comforter Materials

Saatva makes high-end mattresses like the Saatva Classic and Loom & Leaf mattresses. And just like the beds, the bedding products are made with high-quality materials, too.

Let’s see what goes into the Saatva comforter.

Cover

A hand glides across the Saatva comforter

On the outside of this comforter, you’ll find a Fair Trade certified cotton percale cover that feels very soft to the touch. This cover has a thread count of 200, which is on the lower end, but Saatva says the cover will be very breathable because of that.

This comforter has been sewn through with box quilting to keep the inner fill in place. In the corners, you’ll find corner loops if you wish to attach a duvet cover. As is, the Saatva comforter does not include a duvet cover.

Fill

Looking inside the comforter, Saatva uses something called 3D down alternative fibers and lyocell (a natural material based from eucalyptus). The down alternative feels soft and cloud-like, while the natural lyocell is there to be moisture-wicking and keep you from overheating.

Warmth

This comforter was designed for temperature regulation, and intended to be an all-season comforter. However, it still does provide a decent amount of warmth and feels very comfy when you use it. But if you’re looking for a comforter to retain heat, this might not be the best option for you.

Allergies/Allergens?

Saatva lists this product as a hypoallergenic comforter. You won’t have to worry about this comforter trapping allergens in your sleep environment or triggering any allergies.

Sleeping With the Saatva Comforter

Personally, I’m a hot sleeper so I don’t tend to use comforters very much. Even with an all-season model, and a down alternative fill designed for temperature regulation, I did find myself kicking off the comforter during the night.

I like to use two thin sheets, rather than pile up with a thick comforter. But for a short period of time while I slept, the comforter did feel nice and cozy. I can definitely see myself reaching for this during the colder months, but as a hot sleeper, I wouldn’t use it during the warmer months I experience here in Texas.

But I can acknowledge that I’m a bit of a unique case, being a hot sleeper in a hot climate. I’m happy to report that after looking around at some other testimonials, this comforter works wonders for those that sleep cold or live in colder climates!

And thanks to the box stitching, you don’t have to worry about the fill bunching up in one corner. It says nice and even all around you.

Caring for the Saatva Comforter

The good news is that Saatva says this is a machine-washable comforter! Here’s what the company recommends:

Wash by itself in cold water on a gentle wash cycle with mild or organic detergent. Do not use bleach.

From there, you can tumble dry on low heat and remove promptly. To make this a fluffy comforter, you can remove the comforter every 30 minutes to fluff it up while it dries.

How Does the Saatva Comforter Compare to Other Comforters?

With many other comforter options on the market, it’s a good idea to do some comparison shopping. Here’s how the Saatva comforter stacks up against two popular comforters out there.

Saatva vs Buffy

Buffy makes two different comforters, but for this comparison we’ll focus on the Cloud comforter. The main difference between this and the Saatva comforter is the outer cover. Buffy features a cool to the touch Tencel lyocell cover, while Saatva uses cotton.

The Buffy Comforter Pattern

Saatva uses a lyocell fill, too. But with the cover being completely Tencel lyocell, the Buffy comforter will be better for hot sleepers or people living in warmer climates.

On the inside, the fill materials differ as well. Buffy uses microfiber derived from plastic bottles, while Saatva uses a down alternative and lyocell fill. Both feel very fluffy, and are designed to be all-season, but the Saatva comforter will do better in cooler climates.

Who Should Get the Saatva Comforter?

  • Fans of comforters with a cotton cover
  • Anyone looking for an all-season comforter

Who Should Get the Buffy Cloud Comforter?

  • Eco-conscious shoppers
  • Anyone looking for a cooling comforter

Saatva vs Brooklinen

Down is a popular material for comforters, too. Brooklinen’s down comforter is similar to the Saatva, but the Brooklinen comforter uses, as the name suggests, fluffy down clusters on the inside.

Brooklinen Down Comforter Review

Both feature cotton shells, though the Brooklinen comforter is made with cotton sateen weave, which makes it feel much softer and more satin-like.

Brooklinen also provides three warmth options: lightweight, all-season, and ultra-warm. Saatva only sells its comforter in one warmth option intended for all-season use.

Who Should Get the Saatva Comforter?

  • Fans of down alternative comforters
  • Anyone looking for an all-season comforter

Who Should Get the Brooklinen Down Comforter?

  • Fans of down comforters
  • Anyone looking for a comforter with different warmth options to fit their needs

FAQs

Here I’ll answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the Saatva all-season down alternative comforter.

How often should I wash my Saatva comforter?

If you’re using the comforter as is, I would recommend washing the comforter about once every other month. However, because you have the option to add a duvet cover to this comforter, you could machine wash that when necessary, and wash the comforter every three months.

What is a duvet vs a comforter?

While both terms can be used interchangeably, there are some differences between these two sleep products. A duvet typically includes an insert and an outer cover that you can attach.

A comforter is a thick, large blanket, usually sewn through with box stitching or baffle box designs, and doesn’t need an outer cover. Though many comforters, like the Saatva comforter, include loops to attach a cover to if you so choose.
