I didn't know what to expect based on the previous reviews. But I was very happily surprised by the product. When I took it out it looked like great quality. There was NO smell like you sometimes get on new bedding, neither chemical nor 'natural' like you might worry about with wool from sheep (not even a hint! My nose is very sensitive). I find that it's not "heavy" but it's not light either. It's much heavier than my cheap walmart polyester comforter, and I think it's also a bit heavier than the Ikea feather comforter my parents have. I really like the weight on me when I sleep. I also find that the "moisture and temperature regulating" properties hold true - My husband gets too hot and I go back and forth. I usually get this weird burning sensation with my polyester comforter when I get warm, and it tends to trap in humidity. But not with this one. I get the "just right" temperature. And it does seem to subtly divert moisture away (was worried about my husband - he'll sweat a lot on synthetic materials). It's also not too thin - I like fluff - but it's not 'feather fluffy', which I don't like because it moves around so much, settling at the bottom, or making crinkly noises. In short - it's pretty much perfect!
I was happy with the quality of the comforter for the most part. And the size was an issue for the queen size comforter. The comforter I received was 90" x 76", 10" shorter than in Overstock listing (86" x 86") and also the item tag (90" x 86"). It looked terrible on the queen size bed and did not fully fill a queen sized duvet cover. Also, there is a subtle script print on the cotton cover that says 'organic cotton'. I don't recall seeing that on the website. The smell was a clean smell, but definitely smelling like sheep. It was not a problem for me. But if that is bothersome for anyone, better to take a pass. I returned. Customer service was very helpful.
We had a down comforter that must have had a tear and leaked down all over the place and my husband refused to get another one, so after researching options I found that wool and silk stuffed comforters existed and opted to try out the wool one. We've been using it a couple weeks, it is January in Seattle and I like it a lot! I usually set the house to 65F during the day, but before going to bed I put it down to 61-62F and with the sheet and this comforter (and a duvet) I am toasty all night- actually I used to sleep in long johns and a long sleeve shirt, but with this I sleep in a tshirt and shorts. I usually run cold, and am happy this keeps me warm and I can turn down the thermostat a fair amount. I bet I could turn it down more also! Hope this helps!
I live in the south, but wanted an eco-friendly comforter that wasn't going to smother me or break the bank. This weight has turned out to be perfect. It did have some smell at first--like sheep. But, it's wool, so that's expected. I just let it air out for about 5 days, and once I put it in my duvet cover, there's no issue. I'm very happy with it. It's a big plus to me that's it's made in the US.
Purchased this comforter because my husband has allergies/asthma and our down, although super warm, was not good for him. This organic wool is great in that regard. There was zero smell to it even straight out of the box. The only downside has been that, for me, it is not warm enough for winter. But I tend to run cold...my husband seems fine.
This was a fantastic price on organic bedding...which is normally more expensive. this is a good quality product, and very warm, but not too so. I now have to wear less clothes to bed to keep warm and comfortable. Being wool, it does breathe so there is no over-heat either. Best sleep ever!
Stay warm and dry in winter and cool and dry in summer. It breathes. I'm done with synthetic bedding. There are less expensive options for wool comforters, but I paid extra for this one because it's made in the USA (in Oregon). Very well made.
Ordered this comforter and was so excited to receive it. It neve arrived. I contacted customer services who ordered another one for me. It never arrived. Very disappointed
