We started with a mission to help you live comfortably without making the planet uncomfortable. Like goldilocks and her chairs, we set out to find just the right materials to make it happen. Cotton involved too much water and pesticides. Down feathers harmed animals. Then we found it, earth-friendly eucalyptus—the original Buffy fiber that started it all!
Silky-smooth and cool-to-the-touch!
With its rich feel, you might never guess our eucalyptus is made from natural wood pulp. Plus, it efficiently absorbs moisture to help you feel cool and dry—even in higher temperatures!
Less sneezy, more breezy.
Eucalyptus fiber is so smooth that it has no nooks or crannies for allergy-causing microorganisms to live in (so you wake up without a runny nose).
Softer and more durable than cotton, naturally cool-to-the-touch eucalyptus fiber is the stuff dreams are made of. And it doesn’t just feel better—ours is harvested from forests in Austria and the Czech Republic, and requires 10x less water than cotton to grow. Even better? Our mill plants 4 trees for every 3 harvested.
Super-smooth, yet made from an earth-friendly plant, eucalyptus gives you the best qualities of man-made and natural fabrics all at once!
Is eucalyptus fiber machine washable?
Yes. Our eucalyptus sheets and duvet covers can be machine washed and tumble dried. For now, our comforters are dry clean only, but our Supply Chain team is developing a new, machine-washable recycled fill (with all the same marshmallow-y softness as our original). Stay tuned!
Does it smell like eucalyptus?
Nope! When eucalyptus wood pulp is processed into fiber, all essential oils are removed, and so it has no smell. This makes it safe for pets, children, and those with sensitive skin. If you wish it smelled like eucalyptus, we suggest using a diffuser with eucalyptus essential oil in your bedroom :)
Isn’t a cooling comforter an oxymoron?
Our Buffy Breeze Comforter is made of 100% eucalyptus fiber, inside and out, to be cool-to-the-touch and breathable. It’s not meant to be a substitute for air conditioning, but it regulates temperature to keep you cool when it’s warm, and warm when it’s cool, unlike traditional comforters.
Though it creates bedding that’s made to last for years to come, our eucalyptus is biodegradable and can return to the earth. We think bedding that moves in cycles, just like the rhythm of our sleep, is a beautiful thing.
