We live in south Florida where it is warm most of the time. I wanted a comforter my son could actually use. Most comforters are heavier and made to be used in the north. This comforter is attractive, lightweight, soft to the touch and well made. It is also perfect for this climate. We do have the air conditioner on to keep the house cool, especially before bed time. Just cool enough that my son likes to snuggle under the comforter every night.
