Buffy Cloud Comforter Review
The Buffy Cloud Comforter has been designed and constructed as the softest comforter in the whole world. It is made out of fiber that gives the feeling of being touched by clouds and provides warmth and coziness for the whole year-round. It is super soft and covered in a fabric made out of eucalyptus which is even softer as compared to cotton. For the same reason, when the comforter is on, it does not feel as if the sleeper is under cotton candy. The manufacturer recommends the use of Buffy Duvet cover to enhance the protection for this comforter. The Comforter is indeed very lofty, and it has been filled with many layers of gossamer fiber. This gives the feeling of being snuggled up for the sleeper and creates a very cozy and satisfying sensation. The fill is air-blown to ensure that the sleeper gets that perfect cloud-like feel.
Materials and Construction
The Comforter has got a Eucalyptus fabric cover. Organic Eucalyptus is increasingly being used as an alternative material to cotton. The fabric comes from the Eucalyptus tree which is a very fast-growing tree. It is increasingly being touted and accepted as an eco-friendly and ethical material the fashion industry as well as for beddings, etc. however, it needs to be planted at just the right place to be so. In all major and advanced societies and associated industries, it has become important to collectively work towards an ethical, ecological and sustainable lifestyle for the sake of the health of humanity as well as that of the planet. May people now directly question as to where the food is coming from and how it is grown. The same is true for energy sources like electricity, etc. Questions about their sustainability and ethical nature carry a lot of weight these days. The same has now become true for clothing and bedding, etc. The bedding industry has not yet achieved the level of sustainability as much as the food and energy industry. However, there are now many produces available which are acting as alternatives to many different materials that were used traditionally.
Eucalyptus is now turning into a sustainable fabric for ethical and high-quality bedding. Eucalyptus is a flowering tree or shrub which is quite woody, and it is found as close to 700 different species which occur mostly in South East Asia and Australia. There are, however, many different varieties of this plant which grow in Africa, America, and Europe as well. It grows fast, and it is used to extract oil which is very useful as a natural insecticide and is also used for cleaning. The tree is never uprooted when it is harvested. Instead, it is cut. It has a remarkable property of growing back very quickly, and as such, it is being touted as a highly renewable material. The compounds present in the oil extract from this tree serve as natural disinfectants, and many soap makers use these to add fragrance to their products. Eucalyptus, however, being woody is different from cotton plants and requires a substantial amount of energy as it is converted to fiber to eventually make fabric. The fiber is very soft.
As a material, Eucalyptus is known as Tencel Lyocell, and it is made out of the pulp of Eucalyptus trees. For this purpose, certified Eucalyptus trees are used. The Eucalyptus pulp is given similar treatment as semi-synthetic natural fibers e.g. Viscous Bamboo. However, the Lyocell process is quite eco-friendly. The only chemical which is used in this process is amine oxide which allows for a closed-loop process, and ultimately 99% of this chemical ends up being used again. This reduces the impact of the chemical on the environment and also conserves bot energy and water. The fabric which results is very soft and breathable. The amine oxide used in the process is non-toxic, and the products that enter the atmosphere or water sources are minimal in concentrations, and they are quite harmless. The fabric produced is a biodegradable fabric which can be recycled as well. It even gets digested in the sewage. In waste treatment plants, it takes only eight days to degrade it. There are certain negative outcomes, as well. The planting and growing of the Eucalyptus tree are considered environmentally destructive as it drains marshland and destroys vital woodland. However, this can be avoided by making the Eucalyptus grow in areas which do not have swathes of native ecosystems. It is a great source of fabric for leading sustainable lifestyle.
The eucalyptus fabric cover is also highly breathable. This means that it allows for air circulation to existing inside the cover at all times. This helps t wick away the sweat and moisture from the body as well as the comforter and the sleeper feel cool and dry at all times. The body heat is also dispersed and drawn away from the body thus creating a very cool and pleasant sleep environment on top of the bed. Through body heat dispersal and moisture-wicking, the comforter provides a high degree of thermal regulation and moisture control. These enable the sleeper to have a perfectly comfortable and undisturbed sleep as heat and moisture which cause a lot of unease during the night are well taken care of. The cooling and body heat dispersal capabilities also make this comforter highly suitable for use in warm climates.
The fabric cover of this Cloud Comforter is filled with gossamer fiber. This fiber gives a very soft, gauze-like veiling originally of silk. It is super soft in fact and contributes largely to the cloud-like feeling one gets with this comforter. The eco-friendliness of the comforter can be gauged from the fact that each of these comforters keeps 12 geese alive and at least 50 bottles stay out of landfills. As such, it is a cruelty-free product and ha sustainable sourcing without causing any harm directly to birds. The manufacturer ensures that plastic bottles are kept out of oceans and landfills and they are transformed into very soft and fluffy fill. The manufacturer’s family has got 25 years of expertise in weaving mills.
The Comforter is also hypoallergenic and as such does not allow the dust mites and allergens to live and thrive inside it. This is very useful for those people who have allergy-related issues and who normally wake up on traditional beds with skin irritations and stuffed noses. With this comforter, they would feel snuggled and cozy and completely allergen-free. They would have a very comfortable and deep rest as a result and would not toss and turn with discomfort as they would on non-hypoallergenic bedding which is not hypoallergenic. The very nature of being hypoallergenic keeps the comforter and thus the bed clean and sanitary and contributes to the overall health and wellness of the sleeper as well as that of the bedroom. The comforter also repels dust and offers resistance to its accumulation. This keeps it clean and gives a very pleasant and enjoyable feeling to the sleeper at night.
The Buffy cloud comforter has succeeded in keeping 2.5 million plastic bottles out of oceans and landfills since its introduction. This is a great service to the environment. The amount of water used by the Eucalyptus growth and processing is ten times less as compared to the amount of water required for cotton growth and fiber processing. This results in an immense saving of natural resources. Since December 2017, Buffy Cloud Comforter and other Buffy products have become very popular on social media as the comforter is very lightweight, feels like a cloud and it is also highly breathable enabling a perfectly snug but very cool wrap around throughout the night. It is also important to note that as long as the eucalyptus trees are grown in areas where there are no swathes of plant ecosystems, these are environment-friendly sources of very soft, breathable and sustainable products which are accepted by the trending sustainable lifestyle. The low consumption of water, the absence of any toxic chemical in the processing of the eucalyptus and the subsequent protection of geese along with the use of plastic bottles to make the fluffy fill in the comforter are all great benefits that accrue with the use of this eco-friendly and cruelty-free product.

The very assurance, as well as the actual absence of such irritants, provide a sense of relief to the sleeper and he/she can go to bed without any worries related to getting allergies on his/her mind. The sustainable and contemporary lifestyle requires that both toxic chemicals, as well as biological organisms, be minimized or eliminated from the products used for sleeping and this comforter is a shining example in this regard. The processing of its shell does not use any toxic chemicals as the only chemical used in its processing is amine oxide which is not a toxin, and even this chemical is recycled through a closed-loop manufacturing process, and 99% of it ends up being recycled. Besides being very comfortable for the sleeper, the comforter and its manufacturing process, as well as the sourcing of its raw materials like the eucalyptus fabric for its shell, create the least amount of impact on the environment and the plantation of the eucalyptus tree if done at the right places is sustainable. This translates to ‘comfort’ for the ecosystem and the planet as the ecological damage is minimized.
