This has been a chaotic Winter! We can’t really complain about the mild November and most of December, but January and February have had my thermometer dancing. Every time I think Spring has finally broken, the temperature plummets for a few days leaving me unexpectedly cold when I walk outside.
I’ve been spending most of my time indoors, longing for some green grass and sunshine. One of the best ways to bundle up is with a winter-weight comforter. These comforters are noticeably heavy, usually with a high fill power, allowing it to better trap heat and insulate you from the cold. There are a couple of factors to keep in mind when you are looking for a new comforter:
If you are a hot or sweaty sleeper, even in the winter, winter-weight comforters may not breathe as well as you’d like. Being sweaty is counter-intuitive to keeping warm, so you want to make sure you aren’t working backwards.
If you’re more often cold at night, a winter-weight comforter should help significantly. Once you’ve decided what kind of weight you want your comforter to have, you can move on to choosing the size and color. So until we are sure that Spring has finally broken, get yourself a winter-weight comforter and save yourself from waking up shivering and tired.
