When most people are in the market for a new comforter for their bed, they often only make their decision based on how a certain comforter looks. While it is important to like the way your bedding will look in cohesion with the rest of your bedroom, there are other things you should be taking into consideration.

The most important thing to understand when you are buying a new comforter is that there are two ways comforters are constructed. They can either be made with baffle box construction or sewn through construction.

Baffle Box Construction

When a duvet is made with baffle box construction this means that there have been thin strips of material sewn between the top and the bottom cover. This is done in a checkered pattern in order to keep an even amount of down distributed throughout the comforter. This is the ideal construction, and while they tend to be a bit more expensive than the alternative, they are also likely to last you a lot longer.

Sewn Through Construction

On the other hand, sewn through construction is not sewn with small strips but rather (as the name suggests) sewn completely through the fabric. This creates a very secure stitch that ensures down will stay exactly where they were intended to be. However, due to the lack of baffles creating an even distribution of down over the entire comforter, cold spots are created. With cold spots the comforter has a difficult time regulating temperature due to heat escaping where there is no down. This is why baffle box construction is considered still today to be superior to a sewn through construction.

Overall, if you truly want to invest in a new comforter, we would suggest purchasing one made with baffle box construction. You can find a large selection of these kind of comforters at Warm Things online. Start shopping right now!
