Founded in 2017, Buffy is a U.S.-based company that specializes in animal-free, recycled, and plant-based bedding products. Two of the brand’s best-selling items are the Buffy Breeze and Buffy Cloud, two comforters that feature down alternative fill and covers made of eucalyptus-derived Tencel fabric. As with other comforters, the Breeze and Cloud can be paired with duvet covers or be used as standalone layers. Buffy also sells other bedding products, including sheet sets, pillows, and duvet covers.

The Breeze and Cloud share some similarities, but they have several notable differences that should be taken into account when deciding between the two. We cover everything you need to know about the Buffy comforters — including size availability, care instructions, and performance ratings based on firsthand testing — to help you decide which one is best for you.

Buffy Comforter Breakdown

Many people enjoy the cozy insulation and lofty feel of comforters, but a common complaint is that these layers trap and store heat during warm or humid times of the year. Buffy’s comforter line is worth considering if you’re a hot sleeper, or if your local climate is prone to muggy conditions.  

The Cloud is Buffy’s flagship comforter, and was introduced when the brand first launched. It was known simply as the “Buffy” until the Breeze debuted a few years later. Both comforters feature similar quilted designs, and are available in the same three sizes. Our tests show the Cloud and Breeze each excel at temperature control. We awarded high ratings to these comforters in other performance areas such as quality of materials, comfort, and shape retention.

Minor differences aside, choosing between these two comforters will likely come down to two factors: price and ease of cleaning. The Breeze is the more expensive option and requires dry cleaning. You can machine wash the Cloud provided that your household appliances are large enough to accommodate it.

Materials and Construction

The Cloud’s down alternative fiber fill is made of PET, a material derived from recycled plastic. Roughly 50 plastic bottles are used to produce each comforter. A quilted Tencel lyocell shell, derived from the wood pulp of eucalyptus trees, encases the fill. Teardrop-shaped baffles help to evenly disperse the fill and minimize clumping or shifting to one side, and loops in each corner secure the comforter to duvet cover ties.

The Breeze is also constructed with a quilted Tencel lyocell shell sourced from Eucalyptus trees, and this comforter’s down alternative fill is derived from lyocell fibers. Wavy baffles distribute the fill to give the comforter a slightly different outer appearance than the Cloud. Unlike the Cloud, the Breeze is considered fully biodegradable. The comforter is also compostable, allowing you to dispose of it using eco-friendly means instead of sending it to a landfill.

Prices and Sizing

While the Breeze costs more than the Cloud, both comforters are reasonably affordable compared to competing comforters and duvet inserts. Each is available in the same twin/twin XL, full/queen, and king/California king sizes. All three are intentionally oversized, so they should cover your entire sleep surface and hang over the sides of your mattress. You should also be able to use a full/queen or king/California king comforter with a sleep partner.

The table below breaks down each size in terms of dimensions and cost.

Performance Ratings

Our testing team focuses on seven performance areas when evaluating comforters. We performed our structured and hands-on tests for both the Buffy Breeze and Buffy Cloud to provide you with detailed performance ratings.

Overall, both comforters impressed our team. The Breeze and Cloud are well-made, resistant to overheating, and exceptionally soft to the touch. Price and ease of care may be barriers, especially if you’re shopping with a limited budget, but the comforters are very durable — and in the case of the Breeze, can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

Quality of Fill

The Breeze and Cloud each contain different types of down alternative fill, but both materials are both high-quality and are either recycled or plant-based. The Breeze’s fill consists of Tencel lyocell fibers derived from eucalyptus. This material provides exceptional cooling and moisture control, allowing you to use the Breeze without overheating or sweating profusely.

The Cloud’s PET fill also effectively mimics the softness and lightness of real down. PET is a synthetic textile made from recycled plastic. This material doesn’t resist heat buildp quite as well as Tencel lyocell, but the comforter still earned high marks for temperature control during our tests.

Quality of Shell

Both the Breeze and Cloud feature Tencel lyocell shells with non-traditional quilting to give them unique aesthetics. The fabric is soft and exceptionally breathable. Tencel also has antimicrobial properties, designed to be resistant to dust mites, mold, and other allergens. Using a duvet cover with either comforter can further safeguard against contaminants.

Buffy’s eucalyptus-sourced fibers have earned certification from organizations like the Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. These endorsements indicate the trees used to produce the fabric are sustainably grown and harvested.


Although comfort is subjective, we’re confident most sleepers will enjoy at least one of Buffy’s comforters. The Cloud contains more fill, giving it a loftier and plusher feel. Since the Breeze features less fill, it has a lower profile and feels lighter by comparison. We recommend the Cloud to people who prefer cozier comforters with excellent insulation, and the Breeze for anyone seeking a lightweight layer or summer blanket.

Ease of Cleaning

Breeze: 5 / 5

Cloud: 3 / 5

The Cloud is considered machine-washable because laundering the comforter in your household appliances won’t damage the fill. That said, many washers — including those with agitators — can’t accommodate comforters, especially larger sizes. For this reason, you may need to visit a laundromat to clean your Cloud. We recommend using a duvet cover to reduce the need for frequent washing.

Buffy discourages machine washing the Breeze, as this can permanently damage the comforter. Instead, Buffy suggests dry cleaning the Breeze. This makes the Breeze less convenient and more expensive to keep clean. A machine-washable duvet cover is highly recommended for this comforter.

Comforters can be used as standalone coverings, as opposed to duvet inserts that are designed for use with a duvet cover. Since a cover is recommended for both the Breeze and Cloud, this may be a deciding factor for shoppers who don’t want to use a cover or purchase additional accessories for their comforter.

Shape Retention

The Breeze and Cloud both hold their shapes reasonably well. The baffles are sewn through to keep the fill distributed throughout the comforter. Our team did find that the Breeze or Cloud needed to be fluffed somewhat regularly to restore the loft and shape.

Temperature Regulation

Temperature control was a major highlight for both comforters during our tests. This is largely attributed to their Tencel lyocell covers. Lyocelll is derived from eucalyptus and retains the natural breathability of its botanical source. The fabric also wicks moisture away from the body, making the Breeze and Cloud particularly well-suited to hot or humid nights.

The Breeze’s Tencel fiber fill retains slightly less heat than the Cloud’s PET fill. A thinner profile also allows the Breeze to sleep cooler than its loftier counterpart. However, our testers were impressed with these comforters and awarded very high ratings to both for the temperature regulation category.


Tencel fibers are strong and long-lasting, so the shells of these comforters should hold up well over time. You may notice the fiber fill flattening with use, but a good fluffing should restore your comforter’s shape.

Keep in mind that machine washing your Cloud can cause premature wear and tear. We recommend using a duvet cover and laundering the comforter infrequently. Since the Breeze should only be dry cleaned, you shouldn’t encounter any cleaning-related wear with this comforter.

Care and Cleaning

Breeze: 1 / 5

Cloud: 3 / 5

While the Cloud can be cleaned in certain washers, you should avoid using your household machine if it has a smaller drum or an agitator — excessively large loads can permanently damage appliances with these features. Assuming your washer can accommodate the Cloud, cleaning is fairly straightforward. Buffy also suggests hanging the comforter to dry, rather than using a dryer.

The Breeze should only be dry cleaned. This cleaning method is considered least convenient due to the extra costs and inconvenient wait times that can occur with service delays. A duvet cover can help protect your Breeze, but you should still arrange to dry clean your comforter once or twice a year.
