I just got the comforter and it exceeds all expectations. SO glad I bought this. First off the burgundy is more of a Christmasy deep red. It looks and feels amazing. The quality is excellent. It is plush, soft, cozy, and warm. I HIGHLY recommend this comforter and the shams are excellent with a berber fleece back to make them extra soft. I LOVE this comforter!

One thing most people don't talk about is their location in relation to their purchase. I bought this comforter because I live in Lake Tahoe, California and the winters average a low of 10*F. That being said, most of us use wood stoves to heat our homes, and those who don't (such as my girlfriend) pile on blankets to keep the shivers away. I threw this on the bed yesterday and within about ten minutes, I had to pull it off because I was so dang hot. I haven't slept in it yet (purchased as gift), nor have I washed it, so I cannot tell you exactly what to expect. What I can tell you is the corduroy is not as thick as it looks. When running your hand over the pattern, you can just barely make out that it is corduroy. The Berber on the other hand was so soft, I was convinced it was spun wool and not spun polyester. I purchased the Chocolate color because of reviews saying to colors were off. The chocolate came exactly as pictured and matched her decor quite nicely (wood paneled walls & drywall). My only bummer was that it was so nice, I think I'll have to buy one now. And Overstock's shipping was awesome. Didn't pay extra for shipping and it still arrived in three days (uncanny for our area).
I am SO in love with this comforter and shams...the berber side is sooooooo soft it is amazing! I thought of berber as a carpet...this is soft and warm beyond imagination. I feel like a princess when I crawl under this comforter. I may even buy another one for my daughter so she will get out of MINE. :)
I bought this to replace a down comforter that we had for years and was unfortunately loosing the down. I really love how soft and warm this comforter is. The corduroy is a very fine wale and extremely soft. The fleece is fluffy, soft, and warm. My husband likes to turn the heat down at night to 58 degrees and I usually get back up at some point and turn it back up. But now I am sleeping warmer and can leave the thermostat alone.
I bought this blanket for my wife as a birthday gift, we live in Colorado and its very cold at night. My wife is usually cold at night so I thought this would keep her warm. We used to have three blankets on our bed at night. One down comforter and two smaller blankets. Now that we have this blanket we sleep with it and only one small blanket. It is very warm and extremely soft. You would love this blanket if you like to be comfortable. Plus it is a great price, I looked at other sites for the same blanket and overstock beats all the competition.
So this thing is hella warm. I wanted to use it right away but it was too warm for fall. So I chucked it on the floor of my bedroom temporarily and the cat took it over. She thinks it's just great, in fact she won't shut the *** up with the purring while she's on it. purr "so *** soft!" purr! All night. I had to put some earplugs in because I didn't have to heart to interrupt her enjoyment. Next day I put it in another room. After much sweat and tears, I was able to fit it in the washer and prayed the whole time it didn't break my machine. Then I dried it and everything seemed cool until I noticed it isn't colorfast. The red corduroy material turned the white fur pink. What the hell bro? It didn't shed any in the dryer though - like the lint-trap was completely empty. Maybe washing it again will fix the pinkness.
this comforter and shams were so nice and soft. my son loved them for his new bed we purchased on overstock. (14 inch memory foam) i took the advice of the others and bought one size larger and it was a good thing. the queen size would neer have fit the queen bed. it would have just laid on top to be a cover, but even then... the king fit perfectly, the only thing is you need king pillows for the shams, but that was no big deal-it fills the bed and looks great! both side are really soft, the corduroy is very thin cod and so soft, and of course the berber fleece is too The only reason its not 5 stars is the size. great buy!
Disappointed in the sizing for a King comforter, it could be way wider. I have it on a queen bed and it doesnt come down far enough on the sides for my liking. Got the chocolate and color is true to picture shown. Lightweight yet warm. Keeping it because it is darn cozy. Considering getting smaller sizes to use as couch blankies for winter TV watching in Cleveland!
I love everything about this blanket. I ordered the blue and it is a gorgeous color. The blanket is SO warm and soft. I have not washed it yet and am a little bit concerned about the colorfastness. Only other down size is that this will never fit in a washer so it is a laundromat item!! Worth every penny - great value for the price.
This set is extremely soft, very warm, but not heavy feeling, so cozy you don't want to get out of bed. I highly recommend this set, however I wish I had got the king size instead of full/queen so it would hang over more of the mattress. Color is true to picture I ordered the brown. So happy with my purchase!
Bought this for my son's room. Very soft dark brown corduroy. Lightweight yet very soft and warm. The shams are thin but are very well made with zipper closures and look great with a fluffy pillow inside. Great looking!!! And a great price..........thank you!!
Beware of this product in the burgundy color! At first we were very pleased with this comforter, it is of good quality and very warm. The deep red color is attractive and looks good in our apartment. HOWEVER, when we washed it the red color ran, staining the white side to a pink color. We were very disappointed with this. Even though we are a couple of weeks over the return date, Overstock was gracious and has offered us a full refund once we send it back. In reading through some other reviews it looks like other people have experienced the same problem with the burgundy version. I found one review saying they had no problems with washing the brown one.
Thick comfortable lover going to bed and getting under it. First time I washed it the deep red color went to a spotty red of light and dark hues. 2nd time I washed it the red is now splotches of dark and light and the fleece is stained permanently from the red dye however it is so thick and soft that I don't care bc I love getting under it at night
No real complaints, are 90% pleased with the set. We've had it two days so far so I can't comment on its durability. It's light weight, but very warm! I'm not sure why it's called berber, it looks and feels like lambs wool (I know it's imitation,but its so incredibly soft! Softer than the lambswool pillow covers we got at ******* ****!). We purchased the grey and it was true to the color of the online photograph. The only complaint is size. We have a standard king size bed and like most king comforters it runs just barely to the top of the bed skirt any shrinkage and it will be too short!
I purchased this blanket because I needed something warmer for the cold PA winters. I have had it about two months now and it has been perfect. It is not too heavy, but heavy enough to keep you warm. I have not washed it yet, but it seems to be made very well considering the price. I was worried about my cat laying on it because of the material that her hair would spread all over it, but it has not. I don't think this would be a good summer cover, but it has been perfect for my cold natured sleeping self. The only downfall is that I do not want to get out of bed in the morning.
