Are you allergic to the down in your bedding or could it be something else?

Picture

Down is a wonderful luxury many people adore.  There is nothing dreamier than down but for people with allergies, it may feel like a nightmare. The sneezing, the runny nose and the scratchy throat.  Many people with allergies shy away from down bedding thinking that they are allergic to the down and feathers, but that may not be the case.

While it is possible to be allergic to goose and duck feathers, most often the allergy is caused by something else. The runny noses and itchy eyes caused by down bedding are due to dust mites and dust. Who would have ever known?

So what can you do to help reduce dust mite and dust allergens in down bedding on top of bringing it to Arrow to be cleaned? Choose a brand that is made in the USA or Europe. These companies have higher standards for how there down is cleaned. You can add a barrier fabric.  It can help keep feathers in and allergens out. You may also add an allergy proof cover.

Remember that Arrow Down comforters are cleaned using a special, natural process, which preserves the life of delicate goose down.
