I bought this comforter, queen size, about 2.5 years ago to use with a duvet cover. It's light and fluffy and not too warm like a down-filled comforter. It's the prefect weight for spring, summer, & fall. I add a down blanket to our bed in the winter. After all this time and numerous washings, I'm still just as happy with it as the day I bought it. In fact, I love it so much that I just ordered it in the king size for our new bed. If you are using it as a duvet insert, the value is absolutely unbeatable!
I live in Maine where the winters are brutal. We joke that we have a week of spring, two weeks of summer, one week of Fall and the other 11 months winter. When I opened the blanket, I felt anxious at how light the blanket felt. Not wanting to get too discouraged, I tried it our with a linen duvet.
Do not let the thickness fool you! In the past we have had to sleep with a quilt on top of the comforter, but not anymore. Lightweight but WARM. I freeze and my husband is a heater so it's hard to find something for the both of us. This blanket adjusted to each of our temperatures and we slept amazingly well. I forsee that this blanket will work during the summer months when we have the AC going as well as the rest of the year. Though I bought this on sale, I would totally buy it even if it's not. So sorry I waited so long with this on my wish loist and so happy I finally bought it!
I have had this comforter for 6 months now and I love it! It has held up great through multiple washes, at least 3 times a month. I live in Texas so it has been a blessing for the "winter nights" and the chilly summer nights.
The construction has held up so well. There has been no bunching, loose strings, or shifting. On the 4 corners of the comforter there are places to attach the duvet from the inside, so that it does not move. I bought the full - queen comforter and it fit the queen duvet better. It did fit the full duvet but it was tight.
I love my comforter so much that I ended up buying a comforter for all 3 beds in my home. I completely recommend this comforter!
