Winter seems to be coming early in Toronto! After unusually balmy temperatures in the first half of October, we now seem to be paying for it with cooler than average temperatures. This cold weather may have you thinking about soups, sweaters and…your bedding! Is it warm enough for the winter? Have your duvets or pillows become flat? Down duvets whose filling has become flat or uneven aren’t able to trap the air needed to keep you warm. It might be time to consider purchasing a new down duvet, pillow or mattress topper and here’s why you should consider bedding from Canadian Down & Feather.
I have been a brand ambassador for Canadian Down & Feather for the past four years. I have their duvet, mattress topper and Down Perfect Pillows and I am pleased with all of them. The quality is superior! I know I will get a good night’s sleep using my Down Perfect Pillows, which are so comfortable, and my duvet provides the necessary warmth throughout the winter.
Canadian Down & Feather products are manufactured right here in Toronto! They offer bedding products in a range of prices from a basic White Goose Feather Duvet to the luxurious Hutterite down pillows and duvets. Hutterite down is made by the Hutterite community in Alberta. Similar to the Amish and Mennonite communities, the Hutterite community raises most of their own food sources. The fill of Hutterite down is high loft, which means it is high quality and very warm per ounce.
Their Medium Down Perfect Pillow is their top pillow seller and is great for front, back and side sleepers. This pillow is so comfortable that the company supplies this pillow to Toronto and North American hotels. The Down Perfect Pillow has a supportive feather core and soft down in the outer chambers.
If you are allergic to down, Canadian Down & Feather manufactures down alternative pillows, duvets and mattress toppers.

I love the snow and all the festivities so I’m pretty excited. I can do without the cold though.
I heard that the Farmers Almanac is predicting a very cold winter season this year. Down bedding would be cozy and uber warm for a relaxing comfort sleep.
I’m excited for the winter season because it’s a holiday season.
The ONLY reason I might be excited for winter is to escape south for the cold months!
I enjoy winter when I can stay inside.
I’m not a fan of winter. That’s why I need this duvet.
I’m looking forward the the nice quiet nights snuggled up on the couch watching cheesy Christmas movies
Winter is nice to enjoy different activities. I like it if the snow stays and we don’t spend too much time digging out.
I don’t like winter. Short days and obviously cold but I love being under a cozy duvet!
I’m not at all excited about winter arriving! I’m a summer girl.
So excited !!!
No I am not excited about winter arriving. Not a fan of the cold.
I enjoy winter so that I can sleep on the duvet
Nope. Hate winters!
I usually like winter up until December. Then January comes and I can’t wait for the spring.
I love to feed the birds I have 2 feeders.
I am not a fan of winter. I don’t like the snow and the cold weather. I do love the Holidays though.
I’m excited for winter – but my free range chickens aren’t, lol! They consider snow “white lava”… 😛
I am excited for the chance to wear all my cozy sweaters!
I am excited for cooler weather but not exciting for shoveling snow
I am excited for the cooler weather. I enjoy the change of the seasons. Fall is especially beautiful. Thank you.
I’ve always enjoyed winter and winter sports, but I find it gets harder the older I get.
I like aspects of it but it sure can be messy and cold in the city
I’m excited for winter and I always enjoy winter sports
I am looking forward to winter this year. My dog loves playing in the snow!
Not super-excited but I do get through it every year!!
I love watching snow from my couch. I am retired and enjoying it. I had 18 months of summer once and would never do that again.
Wooooohooooo can’t wait for winter!!
Not enough sun and heat for me. Bring on summer.
I love the winter season best. I love the cold weather.
I love the cold weather
I’m not that keen on cold weather. A mild winter wouldn’t be too bad.
I’m a summer baby.
What I like about Winter is Christmas Vacation with family and friends
The quality of Canadian Down and Feather company is superb. We’ve had some of their products for many years.
I think I am slowly coming to accept it although excited may not be the correct word, but I will get there as it gets colder.
I love the snow and the cooler weather, but 1 thing I don;t like if it gets icy out, the snow is very pretty
l am excited for Winter because l will be taking my Grandson sledding for the first time!
I love the wonderful four distinct seasons we have.
YES! I love the snow 🙂 Thanks!
Hey Lori, Great Contest for the duvet and pillows, and you are looking great. Vanna White, move over!
Tried to comment on your resetting for travel page (loved the tip about parking in nearby hotels and boarding a shuttle.
Lets see if commercial real estate does start to take off in a better, more innovative direction. COVID really changed how business is done these days.
Great articles as always, Lori!
I prefer Autumn’s cooler weather & leaves changing more than the cold of winter so no not excited.
Love winter – bring it on!
Not feeling excitement that winter is coming but the outdoors are still green and the flowers are still able to open up on a lovely day so I’m hanging in there as the cold creeps in.
love to have a change of weather from the hot humid summers but it can get a bit too cool inside the house so this down duvet would help !
I love wearing sweaters in the winter and looking forward to hot chocolate and cozy nights!
I’m pretty excited about the snow.
I am excited in so far as that I love the cooler weather and watching the snow fall though I’m not a fan of icy roads and sidewalks.
I’m leaving a horrid job and starting to work from home as of this Friday. So I’m looking forward to the first snowfall of the year. I’ll be cocooning at home.
I’m a warmer climate type. So, no, I won’t be looking forward to winter that much this year.
I’m finding the transition a little rough although I am fine once I get through that. I do love winter, the beauty, the outdoor activities, the fires in the woodstove and delicious homemade soups that simmer all day as I work. I think I’d find winter far more enjoyable if there was a White Goose Down Duvet on my bed.
I don’t expect winter coming so early !
I am excited; I’ve always enjoyed the winter for the holidays and the winter sports.
I’m not really excited for the winter weather, but I do love the holidays and the fact that my boyfriend is moving in in January!
I don’t mind winter as I live in North Vancouver ….it’s nice to have snow now and again
no hate it? Smile
yes and no , love seeing everything covered in snow but don’t like being cold
Not excited about winter, I love fall and spring but could quite easily miss winter!
No – I hate the cold. Driving and walking on icy streets is what I hate the most.
I am not crazy about the winter season. But I love the Spring.
not really looking forward to winter…think the duvet might help 🙂 to keep warm
No I am not excited about winter comming, I love summer.
Love winter. Bring on the snow.
yah…NO THANKS! i do not want to win one…I LOVE ANIMALS AND I DO NOT WITH THEM TO SUFFER!! While most down and other feathers are removed from ducks and geese during slaughter, birds in breeding flocks and those raised for meat may be plucked repeatedly while they are still alive. Plucking causes geese and ducks considerable pain and distress! i think this is disgusting and cruel, and inhumane AND lacks COMPASSION AND EMPATHY!! SHAME!
My wife and I enjoy the winter. She is usually cold during the winter at night and would benefit from a warmer duvet on our king-sized bed.
I am not looking forward to winter
Looking forward to taking my kids sledding this winter. We always have a blast 😁
Love getting cozy on the couch with some wine and a movie in winter!
This would be awesome! I really don’t like winter and the cold weather.
Not really excited for winter, can’t do any gardening.
I don’t like the increased rain & wind & snow that winter brings. It makes daily walks with my dog more of a chore than a pleasure.
Not a winter-loving person, here. Ice and snow are hard to navigate.
I am to go sledding but not for shovelling my driveaway that is like almost a km long.
Not a fan of winter. So no I am not excited. Spring is my fav. Time of yr.
I love winter outdoors and winter sports!
I like winter, but I don’t like shoveling snow!
I enjoy snowy days as long as I don’t have to drive in it. Beautiful.
Winter is my favourite time of year, looking forward to skiing, hot tent camping and winter hikes!
No I’m not really a winter person because the cold makes my body hurt too much. I don’t mind it if I’m able to remain inside wrapped in a warm duvet though.
No, I hate driving in the icy snow.
I’m not a winter person
We’re all season people so bring it on and don’t forget to give us summer.
not really – just taking each day as it come (wrapped in a blanket)
Seeing all the holiday lights go up !!!
No, not a winter person.
What a fantastic prize! My great-Grandmother had huge down quilts on her beds. (Maybe they just seemed extra big to 5 year old me?) I remember feeling like I was floating in a big sea of warm puffiness when we stayed at her house. Nothing like down bedding for a great sleep….unless you top it off with clean sheets fresh from the clothesline. Feeling….very….sleepy….
I’m not excited Winter because it gets too cold
not a winter lover
No Im new to driving. Just got my first car at 42.
I’m excited for winter to be over and done with already. Hate the cold. A warm down quilt would be most appreciated.
Lovely prize. Imagine being outside in the cold and snow, but knowing that a warm and cozy bed awaits.
I am exciting for the ski hills to be covered in powder!
Nope. Never excited for winter.
I hate the cold. I think I will hibernate
I never like winter but I love the Holidays especially when it is a White Christmas.
No I hate the cold & snow.
I like the nice winter days, going for a walk on freshly fallen snow.
Down bedding would be the perfect solution to what is going to be a cold winter. Don’t mind winter so much with down and layers:)
I love the winter season since I’m an avid downhill skier 🙂
I’m not usually excited about winter, but having a new warm duvet would help me ease into it!
I’m not a huge fan of the Winter but I do like the snow and cold in small increments, plus the wintertime means we are getting even closer to Christmas!
No I hate being cold and I can’t play baseball in the winter.
No, I don’t like the winter. It’s too cold and brown and ugly.
The duvet would be good on those cold nights and go with my new bed purchase
I love changing seasons, as it keeps life interesting!
No. I’m not excited about Winter arriving. I dread this every year, even though I’m pretty active during the winter months. I just hate all the freezing cold, the ice and all the extra layers added on to keep warm. Also, it takes getting my boys 10 times longer to get out the door every morning. Argh…..
I must admit that winter does not excire me like it did when I was younger.
I’m not such a fan of winter…the cold, the snow, the ice. So no, not excited for winter.
Winter can be beautiful but I am not excited about the cold weather coming.
Yes and no, I do enjoy winter, but moving the all the snow and the super cold does get old.
I’m excited for the snow, not so much for all the cold and slush that comes with it.
I’m okay with winter arriving. it was a very hot summer this year. i just don’t like the below zero temps and worrying about falling and busting my butt on ice. just what you have to deal with in Northern Minnesota lol
i am not thrilled about winter, i am a fan of fall!
Not at all. 🙁 I hate the cold. But I can’t imagine having Christmas in warm so I suffer thru it.
Winter is fine if I can watch it while snuggled up inside
The only thing I look forward to about winter is seeing the first snow fall when the Christmas lights are all light up. That’s beautiful.
the only thing that I am looking to winter to the holidays & birthdays I don’t like winter

We always look forward to the first snow it’s always so pretty and makes for a perfect day to bake and snuggle under the covers and watch Xmas movies!
Winter fun times ahead skiing hunting ice fishing
I am not excited for winter to arrive, I would be happy to have Fall continue, with its cooler temperatures and beautiful colors
Not really I am more a warm weather person but do like that it is hot cocoa season
I love Winter. Fires and snuggling under a warm Duvet at night….hot chocolate and snuggles.
I’m never excited for winter, unfortunately.
No I don’t like the winter. Particularly because people don’t shovel the snow or put salt down on sidewalks and it makes it hard for me to walk.
i love all seasons. winter is fun for making snowman and snow angels with my grand children. sledding, skying, skating. all the good stuff. even ice fishing.
I love winter activities I don’t like the cold
I’m always happy for the next season to arrive because each one offers something distinct. I’m not a fan of cold weather, but I do like sweaters, hot chocolate and fires~!
Not so much excited about winter, tho staying close to our fireplace helps (as would a duvet ;). thanks for the chance.
I am never excited about winter arriving. I am a sun lover and snow hater!
I am not excited for winter. We had a wonderful summer and and glorious autumn. I would love to see autumn extended for another month!
I am excited to watch movies, hang out with my family, and get to play games while inside the warm house.
Not excited about winter in the least. I slid on ice last winter and broke 2 bones and tore 3 ligaments. No thanks
i hate being cold and with the coldest winter predicted I need to stay warm
No I am not excited winter is coming. I am definitely a Spring/Summer person
Not particularly excited, winter limits options (while opening a few others) but the short days are a killer.
Fall is my favorite season, not so much the winter. I am looking forward to the Holidays though.
No. I am not excited about winter. It is my least favourite season. Too cold.

cool nights and winter walks in the snow
Not a fan of winter but this duvet will keep me warm and cozy
I’m excited for Christmas, no so much the cold.

I love snow!
I am excited! I love the snow
I never look forward to winter. But I can’t stop it so I enjoy watching the fire in the fireplace. Making hot cocoa for the grandkids. Also looking at the snow falling from inside my warm house!
I’m going to miss the beach and pool, so probably not.
I want to hibernate in the winter.
I love seeing the pretty snow, especially at Christmas time, but find it extremely COLD.
I am excited about winter because it means that getting on the slopes with my snowboard!

I’m always excited for winter – the more snow the better 😉
I’m super excited for winter weather! I’m not looking forward to how bad the roads might be, though, because Dallas drivers don’t know what to do, lol.
I just moved to Vermont and can’t wait for a cozy winter in front of the fireplace!
Great article and thanks for the contest! I love winter because its the only time I can be bundled up at night, do snow treks in the day with a hot beverage around town (latte), and get the opportunity to wear all my gear!
I am not at all excited for the cold of winter.
NO…NO….NO….I DO NOT WANT WINTER TO COME.
Love snow but do not like the cold without the snow…go figure!!
I’m not that thrilled but will take it when it comes.
yes and no. I love tobogganing and ice skating, but at my age it’s hard to find someone to go with. I hate driving in it. I work partly outdoors and I hate it then. You do get a better sleep. It’s pretty when snow first falls
As a child, I loved winter. Now, not so much. Thank you.
Love winter and getting cozy!
I am not excited about winter. I don’t like driving on winter roads and I prefer the long days of summer.
Definitely not excited, driving is tough in the winter!
Honestly, no, I am not excited for Winter, snow and ice make it so hard to get around for me
Not really looking forward to winter
I am not a fan of winter.
I love winter. I don’t have to do any gardening, lawn mowing, leaf raking, nothing! And I love to shovel snow, too.
Honestly? Nope. I loathe the winter, but I love the holidays so they get me through the cold and ice.
I am all right with it until February .
I am SO excited for Winter arriving. Hoping for lots of snow this year! The predictions say it might happen and I’m so excited!
I’m not a big fan of winter, but the snow is nice to look at.
Once I get used to the cold, I enjoy winter. The air is fresh and crisp, and when the snow falls, the white snowy landscape is beautiful.
Not a fan of the cold, so the thicker the duvet, the better
Christmas is my favorite!! So I am very excited for the winter season. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

No I’m not. I love the warm weather
I’m looking forward to the holidays, but not the cold and snow.
As a Floridian, I am super excited about Winter coming.
I love cocooning indoors after a day of hiking or skating in the crisp winter air
I find the transition a little difficult, but once it’s here, I love it. I love being active outdoors then coming in to warm up by the fire.
I love the beauty of new fallen snow, but overall I’m not enthusiastically looking forward to it. I have recently switched out my car from a 4 wheel drive to one that I suspect isn’t as good in snow, so there’s that.
Yes! One of my favorite seasons!
I enjoy the change of seasons. Every change brings new beauty and different activities.
I am excited about winter!
Yes! I can’t wait for the cooler weather. Love it!
I am not excited about winter arriving. The only thing exciting about winter is that Xmas arrives during winter.
I am, i love winter, i just don’t like all the shoveling.
I’m excited about winter arriving!
Yes! I prefer colder weather to warm weather. Hot chocolates, ice skating and winter wonderland walks are my favourite!

I am excited. I love the cozy time spent under a blanket reading a book.
I am not excited about winter arriving because I like the warmer weather better.

I am excited for the coming of winter and just as excited for it to end very quickly!! 🙂
I do enjoy winter, but it’s my second best season
No. I am not a winter person.
Winter is beautiful. I’m excited, except about days when the cold really bites/stings!
I’m excited as it looks so pretty outside
I am ALWAYS excited for winter.
Cozy weather, more family time, I love how crisp the air is, the frost on windows, all the comfort foods….It’s a delightful break that should be celebrated and embraced with hot chocolate, sweaters, and fur-lined boots.
winter is so perfect for Christmas
Yes! I am that weirdo who sleeps under five blankets with the window open in the middle of winter. I love, love, love cold winter nights!

It is already November and we have seen no snow. Second winter we are not heading south but we are doing our Christmas shopping and baking early this year.
I love the fall and winter. Time for blustery walks and sometimes snow.
yes and no. yes because i love the cold, no because i get trapped in my apartment unless i carry a walker up a flight of stairs… and no way can my electric wheelchair go up stairs, nor out the back yard when the snow gets too high..
The only good thing about winter is when it ends and spring starts. It is my least favorite season of them all.
Lucky enough to be a snowbird. Winter is warm,
Yes, I am looking forward to the winter. I like snow around Christmastime.
I am not a fan of old weather and short days, so I’m not looking forward to winter.
I love summer but I also enjoy the changing of seasons so I guess I’m looking forward to winter a little bit.
I live in Winnipeg and have a dog, a Husky Shepard mix and she wants out for her twice daily walks for at least an hour each time. With shoveling, I spend way too much time outside, call me in May!
I am not looking forward to winter I get cold easily and put on layers of clothes then it’s too warm inside
Not at all.
Can’t wait for winter! Love watching the snow fall.
I am excited for winter
Not excited for winter but I am enjoying fall!
Living in Newfoundland, the winters can be harsh. I like to walk outside everyday so prefer spring and fall.
I’m excited for cooler weather, getting dark earlier, cozy nights indoors, and Christmas!
Definitely NOT excited for winter, but having a new duvet and feathers to cozy up in bed with would make it so much better!
I don’t love winter. There are a few nice things about it, but I’d be happy if winter was only a month long and autumn was longer.
Only because of Christmas! But otherwise not one bit living in winterpeg! Lol
No I do not like winter much at all !
I don’t like it, I have arthritis and cold weather is the worst
I am so excited about winter coming. These Texas summers are just way too hot these days.
At first , I am not but once it has arrived… I start to enjoy the cooler/fresher bush trail walks and hopefully snow shoeing this year. I do love to get cozy and read in the winter also. Tea and books. Yay.
No I’m not excited for winter. While I love watching the kids play in the snow. I hate the cold!

Every night is a 3 dog nite here so bring it on

looking forward to cooler weather here in Florida

No I am not excited for Winter I dread Winter time but Dec 1 – 10 I am going away to Florida so I am excited about that.
Good luck to all!
Yes! The holiday season is my favorite time of the year!!
I’m not extremely excited about winter coming, hopefully it’s a mild winter like last year.
Not really, slippery ice is not fun.
The Blog Post about Hallowe’en was interesting…except for the fact that I live on the West Coast.
I hate the cold so not really!
No I’m not excited. I hate the cold and low light. A cozy duvet might make it more tolerable!
Nope I do not like winter.
I’m not crazy about winter. I don’t like the cold or bad road conditions. I do enjoy cuddling up under a warm blanket with a good book, a cup of tea and a soft fire.
I like it if the snow stays and we don’t spend too much time digging out.
I love winter and the colder weather. I love cuddling up under a blanket with a cup of cocoa
Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays so yes I am excited to winter too.
We enjoy winter. We’re always excited about the first good snowfall!
I’m excited to decorate for Christmas and to watch my son play hockey in tournaments
I enjoy a few breaks with some snow, but the dry powdery kind. I’m too old & injured to deal with our usual wet snow. But the brightness of snow helps break the usual grey, wet rain from November (usual, but started way earlier this year) through March.
I am not looking forward to the colder weather 🙁
I love pumpkin, cozy clothes and apples so I am excited.
I love snuggling under the covers with a good book when it’s cold.
I’m not super excited about winter, but I am happy that the summer wildfire threat here is over for another year.
No, not even a little bit. I’ve never liked winter.
I’m not excited for winter at all, considering the increase in oil prices.
I like snow for Christmas but then it can be gone lol.
I love winter because of cooler weather for my hot flashes
I live winter except if there is snow on the roads. Snowy roads terrify me
I really HATE the cold so the winter doesn’t excite me, however, the holidays and the chance to wear warm boots and dig out my heating blanket are all things I love!
I am excited about the snow. I love the snow but I hate the cold Thank you
The Toronto fall colours are beautiful.
I am not excited for winter and cold weather.
Not really, I don’t like the cold lol
I’m excited about the weather cooling down!
Yes! I live in the Southern United States and it gets hot here! I just hope we get enough of a winter to kill off some bugs!
I enjoy the winter because of Christmas / New Years / winter sports.
I am definitely not excited for winter weather! I hate snow and I live in the Midwest so there is a lot of it. I can’t wait to move to Florida where I won’t have to worry about it ever again.
Love those photos of fall colours in Toronto
I am! I live in a state where it’s very mild and rarely snows, so I welcome the cool weather and the favorite holidays that come with it.
I love being able to cuddle up with my hubby and watch Christmas movies while drinking hot cocoa. Snow days are even better but don’t happen to often in West Tennessee.
No not a fan of winter, I could live with warm weather all year.
Winter is so bittersweet. It is a beautiful season while we are covered in snow but I prefer to only have to appreciate it from a warm house.
I’d choose winter over summer any day. We just moved into a house that has a fireplace. Looking forward to the cool nights to light up a fire 🙂
I have mixed feelings about the winter season. I enjoy the change of the seasons and love winter fashion but I miss the beauty of the trees and flowers.
No not a fan of winter, I could live with warm weather all year except for a month around Christmas time. A white Christmas and the beginning of the snow is lovely and I would miss it if I lived in a year-round hot climate.
I am in Florida so the weather never changes, but I am excited about the special dinners and seeing family!
I’m not at all excited about winter arriving. I hate driving and shoveling snow.
