The Men’s Journal Pick for Best
Synthetic-Fill Pillow

Garnet Hill Primaloft® Comfort Pillow

Best Down-Free Pillow - Garnet Hill Primaloft Comfort Pillow

We’re so proud — our Garnet Hill Primaloft® Comfort Pillow recently received another top honor. It was named “Best Synthetic-Fill Pillow” by Men’s Journal.

This pillow is designed with precisely the right amount of loft and a 2″ gusseted side to support your neck and spine, making it an ideal choice for side sleepers. And the Primaloft poly fill beautifully mimics the plush comfort of down, providing a down-free hypoallergenic alternative to sleepers with sensitivities.

Not only is this pillow the best in the industry, it’s currently the number one pillow in my house…As far as down alternatives go, we love Primaloft. The allergen-free fibers mimic the loft, adjustability, and resiliency of down, plus, you can throw it into the washer and dryer.”

Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Bedding

Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Bedding


Sleep is the last refuge of the over-busy soul. As long as you don’t bring your smartphone to bed (you don’t, do you?) it invites you to escape today long enough to recover for tomorrow.

So if you’re going to splurge anywhere, splurge where you snooze. On Garnet Hill Signature Flannel Sheets from Germany.

They’re 6.1 ounce flannel, a weightier, denser weave than most. Brushed an extravagant 10 times on both sides to be about as soft as soft gets.

When we first sold them, our European manufacturers (English blokes at the time) felt it was wasteful to make a fitted sheet that was brushed on both sides, since the underside would not be slept on. In pursuit of quality we persisted, and the nice folks across the pond eventually accommodated.

That was during the energy shortage of the 1970s. You look like you weren’t even born then, but trust us, after the price of oil spiked, thermostats were turned down faster than the volume of dad’s station wagon radio when “Jive Talkin’” came on.

So we invited customers to warm up in flannel. And they’ve indulged ever since. Lately, in Grandstand Floral and Heathered flannels, too.

Still, before you join the bedding connoisseurs, a few cautions.


Soft, soft, soft. Hard to get up in the cold mornings wrapped up in these.”


The only complaint I have about them is that they are so cozy my teenage son cannot get out of bed in the morning.”


The BEST bed to climb into on a cold winter’s night is one made with Garnet Hill Flannel sheets! I’ve been buying them for years and it’s one of the only things I actually like about winter.”


My husband even commented on how nice his sleep has been since putting them on the bed … now that’s results! :)”


They don’t pill like every other flannel sheet I ever met.”

Little or no shrinkage.”


I am almost ready to pass on Garnet Hill flannel sheets that I bought in 1991.”

Fitted sheets are the hardest to fold. Their elastic band somehow throws off your perfectly smoothed lines and sharp corners. But before you give up and just roll your fitted sheet into a ball and tuck it into the back of your closet, check out our quick video on how to get that neat, flawlessly folded look fast. We’ve broken it down to six easy-to-follow steps. Soon you won’t be able to tell your fitted from your flat sheets!

The Art of Making the Bed:
Comforter vs. Blanket

Garnet Hill Essential Blankets and Comforters

Garnet Hill Essential Blankets and Comforters

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a comforter and a blanket?

With our Essential Bedding Collection, you not only get the choice of down or down-free, but you also get the ability to mix and match a full spectrum of colors in both Comforter and Blanket sizes. These popular layering pieces make it easy to customize the bed based on your needs — and their subtle differences in size will make your bed look great. Here’s how we recommend that you use them.

The comforter is sized to sit neatly on top of the mattress, so it’s easy to layer without adding bulk to the sides of your bed. It’s the perfect layer nestled under an artfully pieced quilt or topped with an elegant coverlet, adding warmth and lightweight loft without making the sides look too poufy.

The blanket is designed to cascade and drape over the sides of the bed. It looks great on its own, or topping another layer. We like to layer it over a bold sheet print or another blanket of contrasting texture (like Cotton Fleece or Organic Cotton).

Plus, blankets also come in a throw size. A versatile throw looks great folded at the foot of the bed, tossed over the back of a chair, or draped on the arm of a sofa or loveseat. Throws also make great one-size-fits-all gifts!
