I have purchased 3 comforters for my bed in the last 4 months (not from this site). The first was not as advertised, the second ripped one week after I received it. So I was apprehensive to get another one from the computer. I received this one and was SO happy that I had ordered it. This comforter is soft and warm, but not overly hot. The blue stripes match my bedroom wonderfully! I think this will last us for a while.
