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 received the item in a timely manner, much to my surprise. Upon opening the package, I realized the zipper of the case it comes in came opened but with tape around it and the color STONE is more like a gray. Material felt decent so I do have to say you can tell it's a strong lasting material. Just unhappy with the color, returning it.
If purchased in King size, be prepared for the weight of the item. By the size itself, it can be hard to manage as it is fairly thick and heavy as well. It launders well, retains its (blue in my case) color and while not wrinkle free, it is fairly wrinkle resistant if you remove it promptly from the dryer and fold or use it right away.
The Duvet cover is a beautiful, heavy fabric, only complaint is that it does seem to attract pet hair more than other fabrics. I ordered Stone and it is a little grayer than in the picture, but still neutral enough to work with my bedding. It is still a very good value and I am very glad I purchased it. I did sew ribbons onto each corner to hold the comforter in place and it really does the job.
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
