Cuddledown Specialty Pillow – Review of the Week

This weeks review is from a customer in Claremont California on our Cuddledown 95/5 Feather/Down Fill Specialty Pillow

95/5 Feather/Down Fill Specialty Pillow

95/5 Feather/Down Fill Specialty Pillow

An avid bedtime reader, I’ve tried everything from stacking bed pillows to buying pillows shaped like small armchairs where one size fits none. The large wedge borders on addictive. Perfect shape, just soft enough, great angle for reading. I bought the cerise cover…well made (with large fabric-covered buttons. No teeny tiny zipper to wrestle with.) and just the right touch for this Christmas gift to myself. If I fall asleep while reading, I do not wake up with a stiff neck. Wish I’d bought this long ago. Great buy!

Cuddledown Comforter Review of the Week

This weeks review is from a customer in Falmouth Maine on our Cuddledown 800 Fill Power Sateen European White Goose Down Comforter

I normally don’t write product reviews but this comforter is fantastic! Warm, light and a pleasure to use. My old comforter was good quality but can’t compete with this one. No lumps or bumps or bunching – the filling stays in place. Well worth the price. Love it!

Cuddledown pajamas featured on TV’s “The Doctors”!

Cuddledown Penguin Flannel Pajamas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…  Mama in her kerchief (and her cozy, Cuddledown Penguin Flannel PJs!) had just settled down for a long winter’s nap!

It would appear that Mrs. Claus loves our PJs! Our Penguin Flannel Pajamas were featured on TV’s popular daytime show “The Doctors“! The show took time out from their typically medical topics to have a more lighthearted look at the holidays, and to give their 200-some, grateful audience members gifts of some of the terrific items featured on the show!

We’re sure the audience members were thrilled with their Cuddledown gift! Cozy, warm, soft… Who doesn’t love snuggling into a comfy pair of flannel PJs or a classic nightgown when the weather gets chilly! Every year at the change of seasons, we offer our cozy flannel sleepwear, including our customer favorite vintage Rosebud print, in the finest 100% cotton Portuguese flannel. Of course, if you’re a cool sleeper, regardless of the season, you can wear flannel all year round!

And be sure to stay tuned for our “Winter” sleepwear selection, arriving soon after Christmas, for the beautifully soft, 100% pima cotton pajamas and nightgown, also highlighted on the show! You can sign up for emails or just check back at Cuddledown.com.

Customer review of the week: “Ohhh, you just have to have one!!!!”

We love hearing your feedback, and were delighted to receive this review of our 800 Fill Power Sateen European White Goose Down Comforter:

800 Fill Power Sateen European White Goose Down Comforter

800 Fill Power Sateen European White Goose Down Comforter, available at cuddledown.com

I had a 20-year-old down comforter from another company and decided to try Cuddledown after reading reviews. This wonderful comforter is really so light and fluffy. It is a pleasure to use. The staff via phone has been very professional and always positive. They seem to have wonderful customer service in a day where this is the exception rather than the rule. The duvet cover I ordered for this comforter fits perfectly. The cool nights of autumn are upon us and this one is the best I have seen. I know now truly why they are called “Comfort”er. It soothes and comforts you.

If you’re in the market for a new comforter (or pillow or featherbed), you’re in luck! All down and synthetic products are now 30% off! Hurry, our sale ends tomorrow.

Get down with Cuddledown! 30% off!
