I Swapped My Down Duvet For the Buffy Comforter, and My Bed Just Became My New Best Friend
In my seemingly never-ending quest to create a sleep oasis in my bedroom — from blackout curtains to sleep-inducing potions, linen sheets, and a Casper mattress — I decided to try out the much-hyped Buffy comforter, and all I can say is: bye, forever, down duvet.
The eco-friendly, sustainably made Buffy comforter has a lot going for it on paper. The moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating fabric is made from eucalyptus fibers, which according to the brand uses 10 times less water, and the filling is made from recycled plastic bottles, which have been diverted from landfills. It's also free of harmful chemicals; hypoallergenic; and hyper-resistant to microbes, mites, and allergens.
This all sounds great, but would it live up to the "silky-soft" hype? Would I really feel like I'm sleeping under a cloud? At the same time that I was debating swapping my feather-down duvet, Buffy reached out to see if we'd like to test out the comforter for review purposes. Ahead, here are my honest thoughts a few weeks in on whether it's as wonderful as it sounds.
