This is a trivial point, I know....but we've had 2 snowstorms in one weekend so I went out to get some blankets/comforters. I'm a big fan of "down blankets" over the past couple of years since Lauren pointed out their existence to me. They allow layering over the course of the night, put a few on the bed and it's temperature control instead of one heavy down comforter. Anyway, last year I bought a great "down throw" at TJMaxx and I went out to get another one (had looked at TJ Maxx and didn't find one)....I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and found a great "down blanket" and also a down throw (smaller size). Brought both home and it turns out the down throw is "down alternative" which is simply polyester filled which in my mind, is clearly not as warm. The down blanket is great. Not like me not to notice that the down throw was polyester but I just thought I'd point the "down" versus the "down alternative" marketing out to others.
Have a Happy Holiday Season!
