Down alternative comforters are very important for people who suffer from allergies or asthma. They need to keep well away from natural fillers for bedding, such as feathers and down which harbor dust house mites and can't be washed. Fortunately, we have a choice of alternatives made from acrylic and hypoallergenic polyester fiber.

Man-made fillings at the correct density can be just as warm and cozy as feathers and they have a big advantage because you can easily wash them in your machine. Scrupulous bedding hygiene is an absolute necessity if you are sensitive to allergens or have asthma. Here's a selection of acrylic and polyester filled comforters to help you keep your bedding fresh and clean:
