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.
After buying the perfect comforter, I decided it needed protecting. I have tried several and I will tell you this one is the best. The fabric is nice and looks very upscale as it has a nice shine. The button closures are a pain when I have to wash but it's easy to get the comforter in. I have been pleased with the washing hold up. I have washed it twice due to dog issues. Couldn't believe it came out fine. I washed in cold and only dried as long as I had to as I was frearful of it shrinking. Not at all. Second time I washed in warm and dried it, no problems. The wrinkles are alwasy there but not bad. I love the look. If you want really tailored, iron it. It would look lovely.
