For years I have sworn off down for ethical reasons, but you know what, I never sleep well under blankets or synthetic comforters. The weight is never right and the warmth, I find, is not evenly distributed. Oh, it's so cozy having a wool comforter on the bed. It's cool when it gets warm inside, and warm when it gets cold. Some of you out there might be interested to hear that it is dust mite resistant. Our supplier is a wool processor that has been in business for 111 years and we have been stocking them on and off for the past 10. I like that! It means they know how to make what they sell, and they know how to maintain them, with washing done at a reasonable cost. Dive into a cradle of wool, it's fluffy, and sleep and gentle sleep.
