I got mine yesterday and washed it immediately. The insulation stays evenly distributed and washed fine in my front load wash. Drying was more work even with the front load because this thing is big and fluffs up after washing even more. I dried on low to normal temp and manually moved it every five minutes or so to avoid heater burns from the drier. It took a while but it dried great and is fantastic! Nice and fluffy but the right amount of firmness. Was quite surprised with this being a down alternative!
This arrives really deflated. When I took it out of the box I was really worried. But it respods really well to fluffing and it only took about 10 minutes to have it really full and fluffy. I think that it runs a bit large to siza. I ordered the queen for my temperpedic queen bed and it fits very nicely. The seams on the edges are very nicely done - setting it apart as a high quality item.
Six month ago I stayed at a luxury hotel and fell in love with the bedding. I finally decided to get a comforter like the one there. I searched and researched for about a week until I chose this one. After having it for nearly a month I can say that it exceeds my expectations. It is soft and light, and covers my queen sized bed with a good overhang. The material is lovely, but to save it from too much washing I bought an oversized queen duvet cover. The only one I found to fit the dimensions was sold by Cuddledown and has ties in the corners. I bought narrow white grosgrain ribbon and sewed small strips to the corners of the comforter and tied the cover to them. All sqid, I am very happy with my luxury comforter!
I poured over every comforter offered at several sites, but I'm happy to say this is the one I got. Several reasons: huge size (K=110" x 116"), machine washable, mitered edges, pretty cover, light weight. Really love it. Only problem for some may be finding a duvet cover this size. But, if you sew, no problem.
