As some of the others have stated, this comforter generates a lot of heat, and you don't need any other blankets to keep warm. Take it from a person who wears socks to bed to keep warm plus two blankets. By the middle of the night I usually have to remove this comforter from getting too warm. It looks nice and fluffy, I gave it a 3 because all squares do not have the same amount of fill, some are more full and others are flat. It is light and feels nice and soft. Smell: Yes there is a smell that would not leave, even after airing it out for a week or more. It still has an odor to it. I deal with it because of the softness and it keeps me so warm. Size: If you have a king size pillowtop bed like I do, do NOT expect this comforter to drape over the sides and ends like it does in the PHOTO, it will not. It barely goes over the edges. Overall I love the warmth and feel of the comforter, hate the smell, size (too small), and uneveness of the fill in the squares. Because of this I do not use it to dress my bed during the day, only pull it out for warmth at night. Hope this helps.
