A king down comforter has a fill rating that tells you how much fill the comforter is made with.  The higher the fill rate, the heavier and warmer the comforter is going to be.  You might want to get a medium rating rather than something really high or really low…this way you can use it during all seasons.  To each their own though and you will need to get one depending on how cold or warm you are generally at night when you rest.


This is the number of stitching of threads in the king down comforter. Again, the higher the number, the more quality the cover is.  You can really shell out some big bucks for high-thread counts.  If you want to save money, buy a lower count thread down comforter and purchase a duvet cover in the color of your choice.  This will save you money and may help preserve the down comforter as well.

Always make sure you ask the retailer about their return and refund policy just in case.  And if you are ordering on the internet, there will be a shipping and handling fee as well…and you might want to buy shipping insurance on a king down comforter.
