The 3 Best Comforters For Dog Hair
When choosing bedding that will repel dog hair, the name of the game is fabrics. According to bedding experts, the best comforters for dog hair share one quality: They're made with tight fibers or slick surfaces that limit the amount of dog hair that can nestle in a comforter.
For that reason, you'll want to pick one of a few different fabric options. Silk, satin, tightly-woven microfiber polyester, or high-thread-count cotton are generally superior to jersey, knit, and low-thread-count cotton ones when it comes to resisting dog hair.
By and large silk and satin tend to be more expensive than other comforter options. So keep your budget in mind as you shop. If you aren't looking to splurge on an expensive comforter, there are plenty of more affordable comforters out there that will still repel dog hair. Opt for microfiber polyester, which will feature more tightly-wound fibers than a classic polyester comforter to eliminate the opportunities for dog hair to catch in its fabric.
And, if you know your pup will be spending substantial time on your bed, you'll want to make sure your comforter is machine washable. Even though they're lovable, dogs tend to bring messes with them wherever they go. A lot of down comforters are difficult to clean (or need to be sent out to dry cleaners), and this could influence your decision.
Take a look below at the best comforters for dog hair. All of them are dog-approved!

3. The Splurge
Moon's Sleepwares Mulberry Silk Comforter
For a high-end, hotel-quality comforter that's still hypoallergenic, you can't go wrong with this Moon's Sleepwares silk comforter.
