In pioneer times, covered wagons offered little protection against a bad wind or dust storm. Comforters made from old blankets, quilts and goose down were hung along the sides of covered wagons to help keep out the dust and sun, especially if the canvas was torn. Folded up, a comforter probably padded the bony behind of the wagon's driver. Thick comforters also would have protected fine china. Thankfully, today we only need goose down comforters to keep us warm. You can choose a goose down comforter to fit the season or region in which you live. For example, a summer fill comforter may be all that's needed to keep warm throughout an Atlanta winter.
