Ouch! Lots of pokey hard pin feathers crunching and popping out of the covering. The description states DOWN beautiful fluffy Down but this is NOT the case. I'm angry about the misrepresentation but its way too much hassle to box them up and deal with the return policy.

The first thing I looked for was if this had a tag. I would have gone back immediately without giving it a chance to fluff. The tag was there and when I read it . . .25% feathers...really? It did seem a little heavy. If this is not a problem for you, this is otherwise very lovely comforter. Wide white on white stripes with a satiny corded detail on the edges. The edge is not baffled...(mine is) and I have to say this is a crisper look and so, a good thing. I received this last nite so it is still fluffing. It does feel full and if I look through it up to the light there is an even amount of down in the squares. The price is spot on but I may dig deeper and spend more for a lighter (no feathers) comforter. If it goes back, that would be the only reason. I will in the future see if the description says 100% down.

This down comforter is great in the warmth department. It warms up quickly after only laying in bed for a few quick minutes, BUT I'm starting to notice that the down is escaping from the comforter itself AND even through the cover we already have over it. The down is floating around our room and getting stuck in our hair. It's REALLY annoying...It looks like I'll have to spend even more money getting a cover for my comforter. If I had known the thread count wouldn't be good enough to contain these annoying down particles I would have bought something else...I feel it's pointless to have a have double covers to contain this mess..Plus side: warm and fluffs nicely. Down side: irritating escaping down!

The 700 thread count makes this comforter an excellent choice for allergy sufferers. The feathers neither poke nor slip through the covering. The baffles are lofty and the design is lovely. Altogether a good value.

Overall this was a great purchase. The only down-side is that it is a little warmer than I was expecting.

The white is really hard to keep clean. The Goose Down is really warm and great for the winter time. The only thing is that feathers come out of it once in a while. I love it except for the part of keeping it clean - Dry clean only. I have a seven year old that loves to jump all over it. I suggest getting some kind of cover to keep it clean.

Since the beginning of winter, our queen size bed has been covered only by a twin down blanket. I finally bit the bullet and ordered a king down blanket and cannot believe how wonderful it is. The waffle design keeps down in it's place so there's no bunching up of feathers (like our old twin does). Incredible value for this high quality item. My only complaint is that even with the heat turned off at night, we're sometimes too hot!

The tag on the comforters said Guaranteed 75% down filled. The tag said nothing about it being Seiberian goose down. That was a disappointment. It had no tag saying what kind of down it was filled with. I ordered three comforters as gifts and as it was too late to returen, I gave them away anyway. I did not feel comfortablt with the tag not listing the materials used.

Having had a number of different down comforters, I would suggest that this happens to be my all time favorite. It is light, but warm and just a lovely addition to my bed.

This is my first goose down comforter, pillows, and duvet cover set purchase. I plan to purchase additional goose down comforters, pillows, and duvet sets for my other beds. Great quality items and great price. I highly recommend.

This comforter is absolutely wonderful. High but light loft and the fabric is beautiful. I hated to cover it with a duvet cover. It is very warm. I have bought many down comforters, this is the best quality one ever. I would highly recommend it to anyone that likes down.

Very well constructed, light and airy yet toasty warm. This comforter does not make the "crunching" noises that other down comforters make. I love it - can't wait for bedtime!
Two major considerations when purchasing a down comforter are content and construction. The Federal Trade Commission has standards set that specify labeling procedures for products that contain down. If the label of a down comforter reads 100 percent down, the comforter must contain down feathers exclusively. The same is true if the label reads pure down or all down. Most down comforters are made with goose down, but some may include down feathers from other species of fowl. Look below to learn how to buy a down comforter.
Warm and incredibly soft, down comforters are the height of luxurious bedding. Like all other bedding, down comforters can range from inexpensive to costly. The proof is in the filling. Inexpensive down comforters are filled with a combination of down and polyester or down and feathers. The best down comforters, which are usually also the most expensive, are full of pure, thick down. Take a look below to learn the best fills for down comforters. Hungarian goose down: Hungarian goose down is considered the most luxurious type of down. These extreme cold-weather birds have very thick, almost odorless tufts of down at the base of their feathers. This heavy, long-lasting down is most often used in comforters with a fill rating of 800, which means they can keep a person warm even in cold conditions. Eiderdown: Eiderdown is harvested by hand from the abandoned nests of Eider ducks, which pluck the down from their own backs and use it to cover their eggs. Eider ducks live in cold climates, so their down is thick and heavy. It is used in high-quality comforters with a fill rating of between 700 and 800. Eider duck down is the only type of duck down used in high-quality comforters. All other duck down is usually considered too smelly (and some duck down has tiny barbs) and is used in much less expensive comforters. Grey and white goose down: Grey goose down is used in dark comforters due it its grey color, but it is the same as white goose down in all other ways. Grey and white goose down, which is usually harvested from European or Chinese geese, is the most popular type of down used in middle-price-range pure down comforters. These comforters usually have a fill rating of 600 and above. Hypodown: Hypodown is a mixture of white goose down and milkweed. This all-natural filling is hypoallergenic and much more durable than pure down comforters. While pure down is still considered to be the preferable fill for comforters by most people, hypodown is gaining popularity with consumers who want a longer lasting product without synthetic fills.

Depending on the fill, a down comforter can function as a cold weather staple or a comfortable lightweight cover. Fill refers to the different grade of goose down feather used in down bedding. The higher the fill number, the larger the down clusters and warmth factor. There are several factors to be considered when choosing a down comforter, so keep reading for some useful tips on how to pick the right fill for down comforters.
Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, down comforters offer the ultimate in comfort and insulation.

Throw pillows covered in delicate fabrics, such as wool or silk, will have to be dry-cleaned, as will throw pillows stuffed with down or feathers. Foam-filled throw pillows with cotton covers or other washable materials, however, can be washed -- some even by machine. Nevertheless, even if a pillow appears washable, always consult the washing instruction label before attempting to wash a throw pillow -- or you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you remove the pillow from the washing machine.
