If you love the look of down and revel in its soft, cozy warmth but have a very sensitive respiratory system PrimaLoft® down alternative fill is the perfect solution.
PrimaLoft® was created for the US Army as a synthetic alternative to goose down to be used in sleeping bags and parkas. Albany International Corp. sells PrimaLoft® to NASA, that encapsulates the space shuttle. PrimaLoft® is an extremely durable, machine washable, hypoallergenic synthetic fiber that has all the wonderful warmth and softness of natural down.
PrimaLoft® fibers are anti microbial and repel moisture, helping to keep your body dry, your bedding clean and ensure that tiny little germs won't bother you while you sleep.
Unlike other synthetically filled bedding, PrimaLoft® bedding products don't get lumpy or go flat when you wash it. In fact, the more you wash your PrimaLoft® bedding the softer and puffier it will be. All PrimaLoft® products can be machine washed using a mild detergent and tossed into the dryer. Placing a couple of new tennis balls in the dryer with your bedding will also help increase loft and shorten drying time. Be careful not to dry your bedding on too high a heat though, as the fabric may scorch.
