Fall is almost here. I know, I said the f-word and I’m sorry. But it’s true…September 22 is less than a month away. You may have kids going back to school and that requires a whole lot of energy as far as organization skills. Even if you don’t have kids returning to school, fall is a time when we start to focus more on the indoors, including enjoying more meals indoors, doing fall cleaning and discarding and getting our homes in order for the colder weather. While you are sorting through your kids’ clothes to see what fits for the upcoming school season, you might want to do an inventory of your linens and bedding to see whether you are ready for winter.

With that in mind, I was thrilled when I was approached by Canadian Down & Feather Company, a Toronto manufacturer of down and feather bedding products, to review their Gel Microfiber Down Alternative Duvet. My current duvet has seen better days and is starting to come apart. I definitely needed an upgrade. [Disclosure: I received the Gel Microfiber Down Alternative Duvet on a complimentary basis in order to complete my review.] We’re giving away a Down Perfect Pillow, $62.50…see giveaway details below.

When the duvet arrived, I noticed it came in a convenient carrying case. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’m used to down duvets, but the moment I pulled the Gel Microfiber Down Alternative duvet out of the package, I felt how fluffy and soft it was and I knew it was going to be a comfortable duvet to sleep under. I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised because the Gel Microfiber Down Alternative duvet has a 300-thread-count shell. The interior features a synthetic polyester fill that has the same properties of down. Guess what? Because this duvet is synthetic, you can wash it. Yippee! Now, you will need to wash it in a commercial washer since it probably won’t fit in your standard washer. But the fact that you can wash this duvet is a major bonus.

After sleeping under the Gel Microfiber Down Alternative duvet for a few nights, I can attest that this is a very comfortable duvet and the padding is quite puffy. I did not find it too hot sleeping under this duvet, despite the hotter temperatures in Toronto.

You can purchase the Gel Microfiber Down Alternative Duvet in king, queen, double and single and the prices range from $190-$120. (At the time of posting, there was a sale offering 20% off.)

  1. Oh my gosh, this bedding sounds amazing! I love a good down comforter and this sounds like it’d be so much less maintenance–love that you can wash it!

  2. Our bedding is getting old and I would love to update with this. Sounds like it is so comfortable and warm! It would be nice to have this during our cold winters and to help me get a better night’s sleep.

  3. I have been wanting a down comforter or duvet for years! I keep thinking about it now and then but never just get one! Thank you for this overview of the Canadian Down Feather Company. I think I finally found what I have been looking for!

  4. I nice and comfortable bedding will give you a good night’s rest. I’m in the market for new sheets, I’m heading over their website to check their stuff.

  5. Love this! I have allergies so down alternative is the perfect choice for me. The gel and microfiber make this sound incredibly comfortable. I had never heard of a gel in bedding before now. Looking forward to the giveaway! Woot!

  6. That looks so great. Having a nice bedding and pillow is such an refreshing and comfy feeling.

  7. My current duvet is flat on one side from the man laying on top of the covers. I could use a new one. And those pillows look so fluffy and comfortable too.

  8. Nice giveaway. But for those impressed with products from this company, i bought a conforter and a pillow (700$…) and it was not worth it. Both pillow and conforter seem empty of down even after being fluffed and pillow offers no support. Of course, i tried them so no refunds/store credit or exchange…Always shop in-store for these!

  9. Yes it will! I made the mistake to buy those ergonomic, memory foam, latex pillow and I went with neck pain for years! now I switched to my older pillows and pain is not there anymore!

  10. I have tried to find the perfect pillow to no avail. I usually wake up each morning with a stiff neck/back so I think it could definitely help improve my sleep.

  11. I absolutely think it would! It’s time for me to get some new pillows, it’s been awhile since they’ve been replaced!

  12. I would love if the Down Perfect Pillow would improve my sleep. Sleep is so important. I would love to more of a deep sleep.

  13. I know I would sleep so much better with a Down Perfect Pillow with the Down-like luxury with benefits from technically advanced microscopic synthetic fibers.

  14. It would definitely improve my sleep, my husband and I always try to steal the good pillow from each other haha. This pillow looks super comfy!

  15. Bedding is very important for a good night’s sleep. This would help a lot I think.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. I have a lot of sleep issues. I get sore ears and wake up several times a night. I think this down pillow could help me.

  17. I don’t get very much sleep. My alarm is set for 4:30 am, so I have to go to bed pretty early to get a decent night sleep. I think this down pillow would help improve the quality of sleep, maybe I wouldn’t wake up so much during the night.

  18. I think it would help because I cannot get comfortable with my pillow so I use two and then I get a sore neck.

  19. I believe that our posture when we are sleeping affects us more than we realise. Too often we opt for second best when it comes to our mattresses, bedding and pillows without even thinking of the harm we are doing to our bodies long-term. I definitely think the Down Perfect Pillow would help me sleep better and reduce the number of back aches and pains I get.

  20. Yes, I think that the pillow could improve my night’s sleep. I am a very light sleeper, so any aids to sleep help. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Yes, I do think it would improve my sleep. The pillows I have now are not down filled so it’s a pillow I haven’t tried yet.

  22. Yes, I do think that it would improve my sleep. I have neck pain that are exasperated by sleeping and pillow position. This would be great.

  23. I do hope it will improve my sleep. I have tried lots of pillows and not had any luck. So keeping my fingers crossed.

  24. I think it could help improve my sleep, I’m constantly buying new pillows and never seem to find one that is just right for me:(

  25. Most definitely! I think one of the best ways to take care of yourself in life is to invest in superb, high quality bedding to give us the best sleep possible. After all, we spend approx 8 hours a night in our beds so it should be a place of ultimate comfort!

  26. I think the Down Perfect Pillow would increase my sleep because with my current pillow I am always waking up with a sore neck.

  27. I always sleep with a down pillow. I find them the most comfortable. Mine is due for replacement so I would love to win a new one. I’m sure it would improve my sleep.

  28. I think the Down Perfect Pillow would help me get better sleep. I’ve always found feather pillows to be the most comfortable!

  29. Absolutely! I wake up with headaches and often find myself switching pillows and adjusting often, It would wonderful to get some proper rest

  30. I think this pillow would give me a good bight sleep i can never sleep mire than 4 hours due to arthritis in my neck.

  31. I think this pillow would help me sleep. I much prefer a down feather pillow to the one i am currently using. Thanks!

  32. I believe a Down Perfect Pillow would really improve my sleep and I love how it is good for back and side sleepers because I am one of them. The Canadian Down & Feather Company has many lovely products and I am happy to be introduced to them.I love to support all Canadian companies if I can. Thanks so much for this awesome giveaway and opportunity to participate. 🙂

  33. My old down & feather pillow is more tired than I. A new one woul make a HUGE difference, more high quality shut-eye!

  34. I have to buy new pillows every six months because they just aren’t good enough. i think this pillow would be amazing.

  35. I think that the Down Perfect Pillow is exactly what I need for the most perfect restful sleep. Finding the right pillow has not been easy and this just might be the answer.

  36. I think the Down Perfect Pillow would definitely improve and enhance my sleep; I have been having issues with insomnia lately and anything would be helpful.

  37. I have a lot of sleep issues including sleep apnea. I find that any product that works is great. I could use a better pillow. Great contest

  38. Yes, I think this pillow would improve my quality of sleep. My current pillow is so old it needs to be replaced!

  39. I do. I like that it is firm but also soft at the same time. I currently have two pillows that I alternate between (because one is too soft and the other is too firm) depending on how my neck is feeling that night. The Down Perfect Pillow sounds like the perfect solution.

  40. I really hope this awesome pillow will help me get a great nights sleep -I have been searching for the perfect pillow for a very long time

  41. I don’t know if it would help my sleep (I’m always skeptical until I actually try a new thing), but it definitely couldn’t hurt!

  42. Yes I totally think the down pillow would improve my sleep. Im a stomach sleeper and I have a hard time finding a good pillow, they are usually to lofty or to flat. Which makes me wake with a sore neck on a regular basis.

  43. My dad always swore by a down pillow but I have never owned one. I think the support they give to your head and neck would make me sleep better and wake up feeling better.

  44. A great night of sleep can make the difference between an energetic and happy mommy to a groggy exhausted mommy for my son. My current pillows barely give me the rest I deserve. This would be a god send for me.
