When I pulled comforter from bag I was a little thrown off by the silky soft feel to it. I guess I expected a cotton feeling comforter. I have recently fallen in love with it though. It's cold to the touch- which I like and looks amazing in my room. I added an aqua blue sheet set to add a splash of color and it really goes well in my all white room. Decorative pillows have a hard time standing up on it but I'm not a fanatic about stuff like that. It was well worth the money. I washed it right away and had to dry several times as parts were not dry. But still lovin it!
