Layla Comforter Materials

Layla only sells a down alternative comforter, and for this review I received its full/queen size model. This also comes in a twin/twin XL size and a king/California king size.

Cover

On the outside, you’ll find a cover made of high-quality 100% cotton. In my experience, this cotton shell feels softer than other cotton shells, but is still somewhat crisp.

Cotton is a very breathable material, so air should be able to flow through this shell.

This cover has a 300 thread count. For reference, thread count just refers to the number of threads woven into a square inch of fabric. The lower the thread count, the more open the weave, which should help with regulating temperature.

Currently, Layla only sells their comforter in white and gray color options.

In the corners of this comforter, you’ll find corner loops to attach a duvet cover to it.

Fill

Inside the cover, you’ll find what Layla calls “Cluster-Loft Down.” This artificial material adds a good amount of coziness and is designed to mimic down. This material felt very plush and soft from the outside.

The Layla comforter has the company’s signature hexagon pattern quilted into it. This will help keep the fill evenly distributed throughout.

Warmth

The Layla comforter comes in one warmth option, and its Cluster-loft down is very fluffy and adds a good amount of coziness. You should feel rather comfortable and warm under this comforter.

Allergies/Allergens?

Because this is a down alternative comforter, the Layla comforter is 100% hypoallergenic, making it a great choice for people with sensitive allergies.

This comforter also carries an OEKO-Tex certification, meaning it is chemical and toxin free.

Sleeping With the Layla Comforter

I received a queen sized Layla down alternative comforter. I was really surprised that this comforter feels softer than other cotton comforters out there. Typically, cotton feels rather crisp, but this comforter felt a bit softer and silkier.

Even though cotton is a breathable material, I felt that the comforter wouldn’t be a great all season use for me. As a hot sleeper, I tend to only need comforters in the winter when the temperature gets really low at night. If you’re an extremely hot sleeper, overheating may be an issue.

This is still a fairly comfy comforter though. The fill felt very comfortable and plush through the cover.

Caring for the Layla Comforter

Comforters need a little extra attention to detail when it comes to washing. The good news is that Layla’s comforter is machine washable. Per Layla, here’s how you wash it:

It’s recommended to use a large capacity, front loading washer and dryer set to wash and dry your comforter.

To the washing machine, add your comforter and wash with cold water. If you have the white comforter and want to keep it bright and stain free, Layla suggests using non-chlorine bleach. You may want to consider additional rinse cycles to fully remove any residue left behind by your detergent.

Once washed, move to the dryer and tumble dry on low. You may also need additional dry cycles to fully dry out your comforter.

How does the Layla Comforter Compare to other Comforters?

If you’re in the market for a new comforter, chances are you’re looking at a lot of different options. Let’s see how the Layla comforter stands up to others out there.

Layla Vs Casper

When it comes to comforters, the question may be “down or down alternative?” Both have pros and cons, so let’s compare the Layla comforter to Casper’s Humidity Fighting Duvet. Though called a duvet, Casper’s product has more of a classic comforter construction.

Being a down comforter, the Casper has feathers inside of its cover, which is also made out of cotton. The defining feature of this comforter is that it has some moisture wicking properties which means you shouldn’t feel too hot and sweaty underneath.

Layla’s down alternative fill feels plush, and though it doesn’t have any moisture wicking properties, its cotton cover aids in breathability.

Both are intended to be all season, but in our experience, the Casper comforter felt a bit cooler and didn’t warm us up during the night. If you get cold quickly, the Layla comforter may be a better option for you.

Finally, in terms of price, the Layla comforter is the more affordable option.

Who Should Get the Layla Comforter?

  • Anyone who gets cold quickly
  • Shoppers on a budget

Who Should Get the Casper Humidity Fighting Duvet?

  • Fans of down comforters
  • Hot sleepers

Layla Vs Superior

Some people just prefer to use a comforter year round. In addition to the Layla, the Superior down alternative comforter is intended to be an all season comforter.

Featuring a microfiber outer shell, the Superior comforter feels very soft on your skin. It also has a traditional baffle box construction. Baffle box construction just refers to the way the comforter is stitched, typically into large squares, that keeps the fill in place. The Superior comforter also comes in a variety of colors if you’re looking to dress up a room.

Superior - Best Overall Down Alternative Comforter

Layla’s cotton cover should be fairly breathable, and the fill isn’t too thick which makes it a good option for year round use. However, both comforters might run a little hot if you’re an extremely hot sleeper.

Both comforters are great options for sleepers with sensitive allergies, as the fills are 100% hypoallergenic.

If you want to extend the lifespan of your comforter, both act as a duvet insert as well.

Finally, in terms of price, the Layla is a more luxury option, while the Superior is more of a value pick.

Who Should Get a Layla Comforter?

  • Anyone wanting a luxury comforter
  • People who get cold quickly

Who Should Get a Superior Comforter?

  • Shoppers on a budget
  • Anyone looking for a variety of color options
