I have now purchased 4 of these comforters. My only complaint was that the King Size I ordered for my vacation home was only available in ivory and I prefer white. I love the one at my primary residence so much that I ordered a second set to have when the first one wears out! I have washed and even bleached it probably 10 times at least and it just gets better and better. There will be occasional loose strings, but I just cut them off and it looks as good as new. I love the weight (fairly light) and that was exactly what I desired.
