Down with Down

This Weird Blanket Sold Out Immediately the Last Time It Was Available

December 17, 2019 Home By

If there were an award for most-hyped duvet drop of the year, Authenticity50‘s would’ve taken it home. Upon release at the beginning of December, it sold out in a matter of hours. But the duvet isn’t quite like your typical down-filled options — it’s full of wool.

Wool is superior at temperature control (it can sleep both warm and cool) and it’s antimicrobial, antibacterial, hypoallergenic and odor-resistant. To clean it, you just hang it outside and let it do its thing — no washing required — and it’s made entirely by hand in the US. They’re available again (for now) starting at $339.
