Need a non-wool, non-feather, hypoallergenic bedspread

Can anyone suggest a hypoallergenic blanket that's not wool or feathers?

One of my boys has a bad allergy to dust mites. His bedtime stuffiness has gotten worse lately, probably about the same time we bought him a new wool bedspread from L.L.Bean. (We've already got covers for his pillow and mattress/boxspring, the floors are hardwoods, and we vacuum. In short, this is not our first time around the allergy block.)
Aside from a duvet or down comforter, what kind of heavy, warm bedspread can we get for him? Are there good Polartec fleece bedspreads? (L.L. Bean has one but it's only 200-weight -- and that's lighter than the fleece in our coats! Would it really be warm enough?)
Are there other materials I don't know about? This is in New England, so it really has to be winter-warm.
