Feeling Down

Posted January 18, 2005
Down blankets have never worked for me. Comfy, yes. But way too warm for three out of four seasons. So, when the Equinox Sleep System came along, I was skeptical. Down is down, right? Wrong. Fifth-generation feather expert Daniel Guigui came up with the brilliant idea of three comforters in one. One is lightweight for summer, the other is medium weight. Snap the two together and you've got the plush blanket needed for those cold winter nights. For those allergy sufferers among us, Guigui says that the down used in his bedding goes through a four-cycle washing process, including enhanced odor removal refinement and sterilization. The blanket itself, which starts at $179, is encased in bright white cotton and comes with a bonus down pillow. Sounds like a dream come true.
