Buffy is a eco-friendly, cruelty-free, lightweight, breathable and antimicrobial eucalyptus comforter. There are two comforters to choose from. One sleeps warm and one is cool for summer months.
If you’re someone who wants to cut down on how much plastic is in the oceans or filling our landfills, you’ll be interested in the Buffy Comforter. From the outer shell to the fluffy interior, Buffy is unique and doesn’t harm our planet to make.
Please note that we were sent The Breeze Comforter and purchased a Cloud comforter to compare them and make the best recommendation for you. When you shop through our links it’s like leaving us a small tip for our honest review.
Buffy’s Cloud comforter has close to 500 reviews and they are almost 5 star (check Amazon here). We ran the listing through a review analyzer and the reviews are legit.
On the outside
Buffy’s cover is made with 100% eucalyptus fiber, which is also called lyocell. Eucalyptus uses 10x less water than cotton, making this eucalyptus comforter a more environmentally conscious choice than cotton or even bamboo. The wood pulp is taken from renewable eucalyptus trees. They use a closed-loop system which reuses 99% of solvents and creates little-to-no waste.
Best of all Buffy comforters are cloud soft and hypoallergenic (unlike down) and it spares the geese. Eucalyptus is also naturally resistant to dust, mites, and mold.
Made from Recycled Water Bottles
On the inside
The inside of The Cloud, Buffy’s original comforter, fill is made from 100% recycled polyester spun from bpa-free, PET water bottles. So if you feel guilty about all those water bottles you’ve bought and thrown out, this will make you feel better. According to Buffy, they’ve already recycled 6 million bottles!
Last of all, the Buffy is made without harmful bleaches and dyes.
The Breeze Comforter by Buffy. This is a queen size comforter on a king size bed, so the size is generous.
The Cloud or The Breeze?
Buffy has two comforters to choose from
- The Cloud
- The Breeze
Which one is best for you?
If you sleep cold and want something more warm and cozy, choose the Cloud comforter. The Cloud is perfect for warmer months. Originally sold as a cooler comforter, many found it too warm for their preference so Buffy introduced the Breeze.
For warmer months or if you sleep too hot, get The Breeze. This is a cooler, lighter weight option. While the two look almost the same, they are different in this aspect: The Breeze is made only from eucalyptus (no water bottles).
Both are about 1 inch in thickness and come in white only. They look identical except for the stitching. On the Breeze the stitching is in a wave pattern.

Buffy Comforter Reviews
You’re not going to sacrifice feel or style when you buy a Buffy. We requested and were sent The Breeze to try out. We previously purchased The Cloud. Our first impression? It’s huggable. Yes, even in the package, you can squeeze Buffy and it feels amazing! It’s so soft and slowly comes back to its original form.
We tested each comforter and here’s what we think:
The Buffy Comforter is much more lightweight than any other comforter we’ve tried. It gives you just enough of a cover so you have something over you and can fall asleep. But there’s very little weight added. It’s easy to move and not bulky.
Some mistake that airy feel for cool, but the Cloud is warm. So if you want to feel warm but don’t like a feeling of weight, the Cloud is perfect for you.
One fan said:
We love it so far! It’s very thin, but it has weight to it (and yet somehow is still not too hot) so you really feel secure and cozy. If you’re like me and you need to have a blanket over you to sleep but still get hot, this is the perfect solution! I will still kick it off my legs from time to time but I have not woken up sweating once as I did most nights with my regular comforter.

Buffy doesn’t recommend that you machine wash your comforter. Instead, they say to dry clean it. However, many people said dry cleaning changed their Buffy. If you want to protect Buffy, be sure to get a duvet cover (also made with 100% eucalyptus). It slips off and is easy to wash.
This is what Google captured about Buffy, so it looks like the company did say that Buffy is machine washable at one point.
Overall, we recommend that you get the duvet cover and avoid washing Buffy at all. Just spot clean it. We know what the company says but washing it doesn’t seem to have gone well for enough people that we can’t say it’s a good idea. So sleep with a sheet between you and your Buffy. If you must wash it, gentle cycle, air dry is our recommendation.
Buffy offers a 7 day free trial. It’s important to know that Buffy is different in that the free trial starts when order is placed (not when the comforter arrives).“We offer a 7 night trial period to let you sleep with our products before you commit to buying. Your Buffy will ship within 1 business day via UPS ground (3-5 business days for most customers, next day for NYC customers). After you place your order, a temporary hold will be applied to the card you use at checkout, which may appear as “pending” or “processing” on your account.”
Some people have asked if Buffy has a eucalyptus smell to it. We noticed no smell at all when opening or using Buffy comforters.
Right now all Buffy products are white but the company says they will come out with colors.
