This Duvet pure quality, but with the 1000 thread count it is so heavy, that it is hot without the down blanket. I thought it was going to be light and silky, but it just weights a ton. It is beautiful, but it does defeat the purpose of the down comforter with a climate control. Usually, we just throw it off during the night, because its just to hot.
I'm glad that I washed this once before writing a review. I had initially been a little disappointed with the texture because I am now used to all cotton and this duvet was a blend. But once washed it now has that very nice cotton-y feel that rivals my duvets that are all cotton. A good buy.
The duvet cover was delivered and I was so excited! Right out of the packaging it felt as soft and smooth as I had in mind. It is difficult for me to order online - I don't get to touch it, feel the weight of it - is the color right? This product was exactly what I was looking for and this was my first purchase from Overstock. The weight is great - we have cold winters and we like to have the window open at night. After the first washing the duvet cover was even softer - I have had no problems with pilling - which I did worry about after reading the other reviews. We we ordered the White duvet cover and have this on a dark gray quilt. I did have to cut a couple threads off but that is no big deal - seems like I have to do that every once in awhile on various clothing items I've purchased throughout the year. I redid our bedroom for my husband's Valentines Day present - we are both very happy with our purchase - it reminds us of a great resort vacation we took a couple years ago, with the beautiful bed linens, both heavy and soft - a luxury we now see everyday!!! Thank you Overstock for such a great price, quick delivery and quality product!
I found this duvet cover of high value. Well made, great fabric and my comforter was easily placed inside. It looks good and feels good. I am using this on a queen size bed because I like the extra width on the bed. I am very happy with this purchase. It is exactly as advertised.
I like that it is thick, heavy, and soft. Perfect for the cold winters. I use this duvet cover with a down comforter, and it is not too hot, as some people said. The Plum color is deep and beautiful. I washed it a few times already, and it holds up very well.
At first I was going to send the sheets back. I don't know if it was my mistake but the sheet was not fitted, it is a sheet that pulls up on the top &bottom and has buttons to close the sheet, like a sleeping bad for a mattress. Even though we have a California King and have to pick up the whole mattress to get the sheet on, my hubby wanted to try it since the fitted sheets keep coming off the bed and we constantly have to fix them. We love the sheets! my mistake was a good one!!! Just wash the sheets first. TJ
This duvet cover feels smooth as silk when removed from the package, but after washing, according to directions, I found the fabric to become somewhat rough to the touch. It's not horrible, but it's not as smooth as the 100% cotton covers I've had in the past. It does look nice on the bed and keeps it's unwrinkled appearance while being used.
I am happy with the product, but there were a several small stains. I washed them on stain cycle without bleach, and they still did not come out. I did not want to go through the hassle of returning the item, and getting a new one shipped out because I needed the duvet now. But, you may want to consider doing it if yours comes to with stains, as well.
I have been searching high and low for a duvet set in the right shade of purple and this one proved to be a winner! The Plum color is exactly what I hoped it would be. It's dark yet rich. It's big, heavy, and completely swallowed up my down alternative comforter which I think is more for warm weather and kind of flat. I had a hard time finding another one to fill up the space as this set is 90x92. Finally, I did an internet search on 90x92 inch down alternative comforters and found one that was 90x90 at Wayfair. I figured it was probably as close as I was going to get plus the reviews were positive so I hit the order button. When it arrived I got a little worried as I started stuffing the comforter into the duvet but it worked out wonderfully! I'm using it in a guest bedroom but I just had to crawl under all that plushness to test it out. My husband and I love it so much I'm ordering one for our bed. Great purchase!
