General Information

Comforters are usually heavy materials put together by knotting or very large stitches.

Quilts are usually made of lighter weight materials and quilted with very small stitches.

Quilts and comforters with Dacron and Polyester filler are usually washable. Articles made with Acrylic, Nylon, Wintuck or Sayelle yarn are machine washable. Wools are hand washable in cool water.

Quilts should not be stored in plastic as the plastic doesn’t allow them to breathe and they will turn yellow. Use an old pillowcase or sheet for storage.
