Revel all year round in the glorious comfort of a unique triple-layer featherbed that cradles and insulates the body, and relieves its pressure points. Chamonix's Dual Season Featherbed is fully reversible, with a quilted white goose down chamber on one side for warmth and comfort in the Fall and Winter, and a quilted, blowable Tencel chamber on the other side for breathability and moisture wicking in Spring and Summer. Contrast piping gives an immediate visual cue indicating seasonal reversibility, so you'll always know which side is up.
The cushiony chamber on the cold-weather side is filled with 16 total ounces of white goose down, and the warm-weather side is filled with 28 ounces of blowable Tencel. Filled in the supportive core chamber with a 16-pound blend of 40 percent polyester and 60 percent white goose down and feather, the featherbed enables healthy neck, spine, and hip alignment. Boasting a premium fill power of 650 in the cold-weather down chamber, the featherbed provides a real down value. Fill power indicates how many cubic inches of space an ounce of down will occupy, and anything at the 600 level is considered in the industry to be excellent. The higher the fill power, the larger and stronger the clusters of down. Large clusters provide superior insulation, breathe better, and last much longer than smaller, fragile down clusters used in lower quality bedding. And fret not about any stray feathers poking through this topper. The Chamonix featherbed's patented SoftPLUS dual-layer system provides a barrier to keep them in.

For superior softness, the featherbed's Tencel cotton outer shell boasts a 300 thread count in a dobby weave. Available in Full, Queen, King, and California King, the queen-sized Chamonix Dual Season featherbed measures 60 by 80 inches. It is safe to spot clean at home or to dry clean.
Tencel Cotton: Far stronger than cotton alone, Tencel is durable, comfortable, wrinkle-resistant, machine washable, has little elasticity, and is very soft. In addition, it has good moisture absorption, and good static- and heat-resistance. Tencel Cotton fabric is a blend of the cotton fiber with the trademarked, man-made Tencel fiber, uniting the good qualities of each. Like rayon, Tencel is made from cellulose derived naturally from dissolved wood pulp. Unlike rayon, Tencel is processed without producing large amounts of sulfurous waste, sometimes leading it to be labeled "low impact". Tencel producers use a closed-loop chemical process in which its solvent can be filtered and reused. Tencel fibers can be used alone or blended with cotton, flax, polyester, wool, and spandex. Tencel fibers can be knitted or woven into a wide range of fabrics, including crepes, chambrays, poplins, and twills. Tencel fibers produce "fibrillation," the forming of tiny hairs, which can give some Tencel fabrics a soft, peach-fuzz texture.
