We had a late spring here in Minnesota, but summer is definitely here now. It was officially signaled by the fact that we finally kicked off our down comforter in the middle of the night. I am always eager to bring it out each fall and am reluctant to put it away when the weather warms.
It is the perfect weight to offer the coziness I like, but it’s breathable and light enough that we don’t wake up sweating under it.
So I don’t add more bulk, I didn’t put it in a cover, but sandwiched it between the sheets and our quilt.
Before I go on, let me back up and introduce you to Brooklinen, in case you haven’t heard of them. I actually was only introduced to them recently, but I’ve been so impressed with their company and co-founders.
The two things that caught my eye when I was combing their website. One – the reviews. Brooklinen products collectively have a 4.7 star review from almost 25,000 customers. The lightweight comforter alone is ranked a solid five stars with almost 1,000 reviews.
And two – their commitment to luxurious quality along with their willingness to stand behind that quality with a full lifetime warranty. If any of their products pill, snag, rip, or fray, they will repair or replace them for free. To me, it speaks volumes when a company is willing to take a warranty that far. A natural down comforter, especially one that is king sized, is an investment and it’s nice to know that, baring any freak accidents, it will last a lifetime.
My, oh my…
I have always been a tactile person. Even when I was an infant, I frustrated my mom by spitting out anything she tried to feed me until she found a spoon with the proper texture. As a toddler, I loved my night-night (my blanket) because of how it felt when I wrapped it around my index finger and rubbed it gently under my nose. As a girl, I used to giggle when my mom washed my sheets and I slid into the fresh smooth bedding.
As a long time lover of things that feel nice, I can attest that these towels are off the tactile chart. They are so incredibly soft and fluffy. I wish there was feel-o-vision through the computer screen, so you could experience how thick and plush these towels are.
When I first used one, it seemed crazy how absorbent it was. The towel soaked up the water and then didn’t feel damp after. I thought I might be making it up, because I really wanted to like them, but I read that exact comment in other reviews of Brooklinen Towels.
The bath sheets are also huge – 40″ x 70″, so if you like to wrap up in a towel after a bath or if you have a big-and-tall guy in your life, this towel makes a standard bath towel look like a washcloth. Okay, not really, but they are big, thick, and heavy, and I can imagine guys like my dad and brother, who are both over 6′, really enjoying towels this oversized.
Hey…I may know what I’m getting them for Christmas.
