Initially I thought it just needed to be washed a couple of time in order for the down to settle in or something, but this blanket just keeps on leaking feathers and down all over the place. It got to the point where I just took them off my kids' beds, because it wasn't worth the feathers and down flying around. When I washed them, I had a lint filter full of down that was fluffly and floated all over the room. These are cheap for a reason. Very disappointed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great weight, nice fabric, good edging, horrible ability to contain feathers
Nice, warm, thin, light, leaks like a screen door on a submarine. Spreads feathers of death to every possible corner and crevice in your room. I find tidy piles built up even in my closet! If I wear black and simply lie down on my bed, I am bound to get a few fragments on me.
i would have loved this comforter if it wasn't for the fact that it SHEDS LIKE A ******. EVERYWHERE> The feathers are EVERYWHERE> I even tried putting a large cover over it and it sheds THROUGH the cover. *****. Save your money for something else. You'll regret after you start picking feathers off everything that you own.
I couldn't be more satisfied with the famous maker down blanket after keeping it on my bed through four seasons. The blanket is light yet warm & looks neat & pretty. I'm so pleased with the blanket that I recently bought an identical blanket as a gift for a friend.
I slept under a blanket like this at my daughter's house. It was so comfy and warm that I had to have one. Living in Montana brings cool nights and this blanket is just the perfect weight. We also use it in the winter as an extra layer and it keeps everyone warm that uses it. Would definitely buy another.
I didn't have a "blankie" as a child, but this is my "blankie" now. I've had it for several years, washed it repeatedly, and it's still as good as new. The down is well distributed. I have a down comforter that has cold spots, but this one isn't like that. I love the feel of the high quality fabric surface. It comforts me. When I was recovering from surgery a couple of years ago, this blanket was nowhere to be found, and I whined for my blankie until my poor husband searched it out and return it to me. I was feeling lousy and this blanket made me feel better. Can there be a higher recommendation than that? I hope it lasts forever. Barring that, I hope I can get another here if I ever need one. Or maybe I'll purchase another just in case... It's that important to me. (blush)
I bought this blanket in blue b/c I needed something lightweight for the summer. The price was right and when the blanket arrived, I was very happy with how the blue color from the website was true to the actual blanket's color. The blanket is the perfect weight for summer sleeping and is very comfortable. The price is very good too!
I read reviews prior to placing my order for this item as well as other down comforters, thus I knew what to expect. I was not disappointed and would recommend to others. summary. 1..odor---none 2..appearance--excellent 3..boxed stitching--excellent design 4..down fill well disbursed 5..unable to fluff down even after placing in dryer hope this helps others decide.
We are so impressed with this product we are ordering one for our :RV. Even though I ordered a twin size; it is really a full size and very, very comfortable for summer slumber. Perfect thickness and eight. My husband is cold natured and I am warm natured but this seems to be the perfect weight for both of us. Really a nice out fabric and it is all down, no feathers poking your skin. I would have one on every bed!
A very good purchase, extra large size twin covers a standard twin bed very well with some of the blanket hanging over the sides. I bought a white and a red. The red is a very deep warm attractive red. If I would improve anything it would fill it with more down, but I would say that about any down blanket.
This is one of the best products offered by Overstock, in my opinion. The surface is very nice silky material but without the slipperiness you get in most comforters which causes the other comforters to fall off the bed so that halfway through the night you have to get out of bed, shivering, to replace it. The amount of down is just right and is stitched closely so it doesn't shift. I have a couple more of these down blankets and am very happy with t hem.
Bought these as a gift for my folks they love them! They live in New England state and can get pretty cold. They stated they only need this over their sheet plenty warm. Seemed thin at first but threw in dryer on air fluff and bounced up. Few feathers coming out but not enough to worry especially for the price. Great value!
