IKEA Down Comforter Question: Will it get obliterated in the wash?
May 6, 2014 9:12 PM Subscribe
Last year, I bought a $20 synthetic MYSA STRA
(warmth rate 1) comforter from IKEA. It fits perfectly inside my duvet, but it became a lumpy mess the first time it was washed. Granted, I only wash the comforter a few times a year, but still... it's a lumpy mess. I'm tempted to try the down MYSA VETE comforter
, but I'm worried it'll also become a lumpy mess after one wash. I've never owned a down comforter before. Surely some of you own it. I'd appreciate any thoughts. Is it worth $90?

The care instructions say:
"Machine wash ,hot 140°F (60°C).
Use 1/3 of the normal amount of detergent when washing.
Do not bleach.
Tumble dry, normal."
So, clearly, it can be washed... but will down become a lumpy mess, or is that more of an issue with synthetic fill?
