I love this comforter! My husband and I are both comfortable under it. With a down comforter, I end up taking it off and putting it back on during the night, as I get hot or cold; with this silk comforter it seems to regulate the heat and keep us comfortable all night.

This light weight comforter is warm, without the "stuffy" feeling that one gets from synthetic-filled comforters. The lightness of the weight is good most nights that don't go down to below freezing.

It is heavier than I thought it would be. With the duvet it ts too warm for Tucson. Otherwise, it will be great for the winter months. It arrived quickly and it is very well made.

What an amazing comforter, especially for the price - you definitely can't beat it. I almost didn't want to put a duvet cover over it because it is as soft as silk. Perfect for all seasons!

We really love the comfort and warmth of this, without the weight. Our son threw it into the wash (label says dry clean only), still inside the duvet. I was horrified, but when I dried it.. on low, it came out just fine. I would not recommend washing it, though as I don't know how long it would hold up. I think it looks like it got washed in a washing machine, but that's because it is slightly wrinkled. It's covered inside a duvet, anyway, and it still provides the same comfort.

I got the king size comforter and it fit my duvet very nicely. It gives the bed a modern look, not the fluffy look like down. The silk batting is evenly stitched and does not shift around, which I find is a nice feature. The weight feels fine now, but is a little on the thin side, so it may not be warm enough for the winter.

We recently traveled to China and visited a factory where these type comforters were made. My mother coveted them, but we didn't want to carry it throughout the trip with us. I bought this for her birthday when we returned and she has been thrilled. The cover is higher quality than we saw in the factory in China, the weight is great, the price was better. Couldn't be happier, especially since a duvet cover is NOT necessary.

I purchased this item because I have fibromyalgia and lightweight silk comforters seem to work best. This one is a bit more weighty because of the high thread count cotton exterior. It's a fine quality item that I will use as a summer comforter on another bed in the home. It is beautifully made and very nicely finished.

I highly recommend this comforter. We needed to replace the comforter we had that was heavy to move around under and not very warm. This silk comforter is much lighter but very warm. We set our thermostat down at night and we stay very cozy. I did purchase a duvet cover for it (also from Overstock) since it is recommended that a silk comforter just be hung out in the sun a couple times a year and not put in the washer. I had planned to purchase a down comforter, but I am so very glad I made the decision to purchase the silk one instead.

I needed a silk comforter because I needed something lightweight and hypoallergenic, and this seemed to fit the bill. It isn't overly heavy, but I sleep with an open window in the northeast, and have been warm enough, even on nights with the temperature in the 20s. The only drawback is that the cover is white, which is neutral but requires a cover for it.

This duvet is light-weight but because it is silk filled, it is breathable for summer use and provides needed warmth for the winter. It is ideal for those looking for a sleek coverlet look but wanting something that can be used year-round. I highly recommend.

I am so very pleased with the silk comforter because it is light weight but still so very warm. It has a nice appearance when the bed is made because it lay so flat under the bedspread. I have always wanted the silk comforter but the price has always stopped me from buying until I saw it on Overstock. I couldn't believe the great price. It was less than one forth of what I have seen them for. Because they are silk filled they all range from $250.00 to $400.00. Thank you Overstock for the great price..

Silk is a good alternative to down comforters. I would recommended this purchase!

For the price this silk comforter is o.k. . I think I would rather have had a higher end one though.

Product is as described and well worth the money. I am pleased with it.

I love this comforter! Not bulky or hot but quite warm. You should have a duvet. This is dry clean only. At first you think its a bit thin but very soft and comfortable. I would buy another. Fair price.

This comforter was exactly what I was looking for at half the price of all the other silk comforters I found in catalogs. It is well made and best of all not too heavy plus it breathes so you don't sweat.

I was somewhat skeptical after looking at similar products that were much more expensive. But I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy using this comforter on my bed.

We have evolved to a more minimalist style in our bedroom than that our over-stuffed down comforter affords. We were looking for a new filler for a nice duvet cover but didn't want the warmth, puffy appearance or cost of another down comforter. The silk provides a low profile, is certainly warm enough but not as sweat-inducing as its predecessor. Very happy with our purchase! Great value and resolved a challenge.
