I bought this comforter on recommendation from a friend, and I am so glad I did. The fabric is soft, the loft is light and yet warm. I was so pleased when I washed it and it maintained it's loft - soft, fluffy, and evenly dispersed throughout the stitched-down baffles. I have bought alternate down products from other sources and the loft wads up when laundered, cannot be refreshed, and they become lumpy. I highly recommend this comforter. It is one of the best values I have purchased in bedding.
