Your friend may prefer the comfort of your bed, as opposed to their own - cat bed or dog bed - so, we've popped together the best pet hair comforters for your home. We love our furry friends, but one thing we can do without is the stray hair, fluff, and fuzz that always seems to coat our bedding after a snuggle on the sofa or letting them up on the bed as a treat. It gets everywhere and loves to stick, making it extra difficult to shake off.

Pet-hair-resistant bedding comes to the rescue, and it's a wonderful thing! We've found the best bedding options that not only keep cat and dog hair to a minimum but are also easy to clean and hypoallergenic, great for you and your pet.

From blankets to comforters, duvet covers, and bedspreads, these are a must-have for pet owners who are looking to keep their bedding as clean and fuzz-free as possible. If your dog doesn't like being apart from you, maybe an anti-anxiety dog bed is best. For cats, heated beds are super smart and keep your moggy snug. You could break out a pet hair-busting cordless vacuum if the hair is pestering you.

Available in a range of colours and sizes, this ultra-soft, all-season microfibre comforter will help keep you cosy and your bed as clean as possible. With a tightly woven material, it provides superior protection against dust mites and pet hair, and many reviewers have raved about its hypoallergenic quality and its lightweight feel - great for hot sleepers. Comforters are a great piece of bedding that be used on their own, or as an insert for your favourite anti-pet hair duvet cover, with corner and side loops to easily attach.

Customer Review: "LOVE this comforter. I am very fussy about comforters. I want very soft and the right weight, not light but not really heavy. The second I got this on my bed I knew I loved it. Both my husband and I love them. They have little loops so you can use them as a duvet. We however are using it as a comforter with no cover. We got the navy/grey and have had it for months and it doesn't show any dirt! Surprising as it's summertime and we have two little dogs that sleep in the bed with us. Our bed is located about 15 feet from our doggy door and our backyard is full of dirt and water (ponds). We never see dirt like we used to with an old blanket. Highly recommend."

Pros

  • Range of colours and sizes
  • Plush, hypoallergenic
  • Lightweight feel

Cons

  • May not suit all sleepers

It's breathable, soft, and lightweight, and the premium poly filling is secured with a durable box stitch. No excitable pups will be ripping the filling loose from this cover!

Customer Review: "I like the warmth and feeling of this blanket. I don’t use a duvet cover. I use it as is. Although I bought it to keep me cool, sometimes it gets too hot under the blanket so I usually stick my feet out and it’s better. I constantly have to wash it because I have a Belgian Malinois that sheds all over it. After 50+ washes it’s still in MINT condition. The downside is that it’s a dog hair magnet. Wouldn’t recommend it for owners that sleep with their pets."

Pros

  • Lightweight and soft
  • Easy to care for
  • Different colours and sizes

Cons

  • Not for owners that sleep with pets

FAQs

How do you get pet hair out of a comforter?

To keep your comforter in top-notch condition, you can regularly vacuum it to suck out any trapped allergens, dust mites, and stray hairs that may have collected on the surface.

Alternatively, if you don't have a handheld vacuum and are looking for an affordable solution, we'd recommend pet hair removers that come as rollers, brushes, and tools to help shift those extra pesky cat and dog hairs.

If you're looking for an instant pet hair remover you can source in your own home, you can try to use lint rollers or tape to pick up loose hairs, or tumble-dryer sheets and rubber gloves to collect hairs using static.

What colour bedding hides pet hair the best?

If you're looking to keep any pet hair that does get attracted to your bedding more discreetly, you should choose bedding similar in colour tone to your furry companion's coat of hair. That way, it'll blend in a little. Result.

For breeds with lighter fur, we'd recommend bedding in the colours grey, beige, and even white for a particularly light coat.

For dogs and cats with darker fur, black, navy, or dark grey bedding would work best to help keep the stray hairs out of sight, and out of mind.

Which fabrics repel pet hair the best?

When choosing your bedding, the most important thing to consider is the material used as this is what will determine how 'sticky' the fabric is. We're here to help.

You should avoid:

High-static materials, which are likely to attract fur more easily. This includes loosely woven cotton, velvet, nylon, linen, acrylic, chenille, and velour.

Highly textured fabrics that are fluffy or embellished. These are more likely to trap hair between the threads, as well as being a risky business for pet claws.

You should choose:

Tight-knit materials that prevent pet hairs and other debris from getting trapped in between fibres. They are easier to rid of rogue fluff with a simple shake or wipe. We'd recommend tightly woven materials such as rayon, satin, silk, canvas, microfibre, and tight-knit cotton.

When shopping for the best comforter for pets, we would also advise choosing duvets or comforters that are machine-washable. Fur — combined with other potential accidents — means you’ll probably have to clean your bedding and put it through the machine more often than non-pet owners.

Now you know exactly what to look out for, we've listed some of the best fur-repelling comforters, duvet covers, bedspreads, and blankets on the market. This'll save you valuable time hunting that could otherwise be spent with your furry friend.
