With our Empress Hypodown 800 Fill down comforters you get more warmth with a lighter weight comforter. Our Empress Hypdown 800 Fill comforter will certainly add a luxurious and elegant touch and feel to your bedroom. These comforters are filled with Hypodown – a clean blend of pure Hungarian goose down and syriaca clusters (the soft hollow fibers of the milkweed plant). The result is a blend of plush hypoallergenic fill which wicks moisture away from your body far more quickly than either plain down or synthetics. The goose down of the 800 fill comforter contains 95% large plumule down clusters and only 5% of down plumule pieces. The final touch of a 350 thread count long staple Egyptian cotton cover, unique baffled cloud design and double piping brings out the comforter’s beauty. If the quality of your bedding and sleep is important each night, then the Empress Hypodown comforter is the perfect fit to help you float away the moment your head hits the pillow.
Spot Clean when possible. Place in the dryer on low heat to refresh the down or hang on a clean line on a sunny day. Please do not leave it in direct sunlight. These comforters are machine washable. However, we recommend that these Hypodown comforters be professionally laundered by a company familiar with cleaning down. You can send your comforter away to be cleaned by the Blanc Plume French Laundry (1-800-307-0229), a company that specializes in cleaning fine linens, antiques and comforters. To clean your comforters and pillows they use a special, natural process which preserves the life of delicate goose down. They also ensure that your down is dried properly and thoroughly, at low temperatures, to allow for maximum loft. They also offer comforter restoration services as well.
How it Works
|Hypodown is Hypoallergenic: Goose
down can cause allergic reactions in some people. It is not the down
that does this, however, but rather it is the dust particles remaining
on the down after washing and processing. Our comforters and pillows
are guaranteed by the manufacturer to be hypoallergenic. This is accomplished
by combining syriaca clusters (commonly known as milkweed) with the
down. The syriaca clusters enhance the natural properties of the down
as well as stabilize the components that cause people to suffer down
allergies from their comforters. These comforters contains 80% European goose down and 20% syriaca clusters. These comforters come in larger sizes - perfect for covering today's pillowtop mattresses.
Note: Hypodown has been tested in the offices of Allergy and Asthma Doctors in the United States and Europe. These tests prove that most people who are allergic to down can use Hypodown without reactions.
are hypoallergenic and stabilize the components in down that cause
allergic reactions when used as fill in comforters.
floss is a natural hollow fiber that is hypo-allergenic by itself.
When syriaca floss and goose down are combined, the floss traps and
suppresses the dust and dander to which some people have allergic
reactions to. These clusters actually enhance the natural properties
of down and are a fantastic fill for comforters and pillows. Syriaca clusters
are cleaned and separated from the pods through mechanical action
and air. No chemicals are used. It takes 800 pods to make one pound
of Syriaca clusters.
Note: Many down comforters found in retail stores have fill powers of 550 or less.

Thread count of comforter: These beautiful hypo-allergenic European goose down comforters have a thread count of 350. Thread count is the number of threads per inch of a fabric. The higher the count, the smoother and silkier the fabric feels. The higher thread count also provides a stronger barrier to any of the fill escaping from the comforters.
Comforter fill: Hypodown comes in different fill powers which is the technical term for the space one ounce of down occupies in cubic inches. The higher the fill power, the better the clusters are at trapping air and keeping you warm. Higher fill power also gives you more warmth with a lighter weight comforter. These down comforters are sold in two fill powers: 700 fill and 800 fill. 80% Pure Hungarian Goose Down and 20% Syriaca Clusters. The 80% of down in the 800 fill comforter contains 95% large plumule down clusters and only 5% of down plumule pieces. The 80% of down in the 700 fill comforter contains 85% large plumule down clusters and 15% of down plumule pieces. The down and syriaca in these comforters is the cleanest, least treated fibers we could find anywhere.The down is de-dusted and gently washed up to 8 times in an environmentally friendly cleansing solution and rinsed three times. This cleaning process renders the down pH neutral. These are the most hypoallergenic down comforters we could find - due to the quality of materials used, cleaning process and the addition of the natural syriaca clusters.
The pure and innovative blend of Hypodown and syriaca clusters have been tested by allergy doctors and guaranteed to be allergy-free. The baffled cloud design allows the loft of the down to remain fluffy like a cloud and looks elegant even beneath a duvet cover.
