This comforter is a nightmare! I have had it for over a year.. and now I am back to buy a new one after three major holes opened up in the fabric. The result being a blizzard of feathers in my bedroom. From the get- go I was unhappy with this comforter. The baffle box construction is poorly done. We found ourselves having to rotate it weekly so that we could get a few nights a week of even feather distribution. The rest of the week was either all the feathers at our feet (time to rotate) or up by our heads (which never lasted for more than a day). As I had mentioned, the fabric is terrible. We don't have tractor trailers driving over our bed... so for the life of me, I can not understand WHY three huge rips occured. We're not talking a small little slow feather leaking hole- I'm talking about mjor 3"- 6" tears along the grain of the fabric. The material, although claimed to be 1300 thread count, is poorly woven. If you are a first time buyer of down- move along from this one or you'll never experience the warmth and comfort down lovers all come to adore. I would also like to add (after reading many comments on several other down comforters) that it should be expected that all down comforters will ocassionally shed some feathers. Some people like to refer to it as beng like dust- it's just the smaller feathers popping through- and it's normal. A well made down comforter should hold the feathers within the baffle box construction and never seem like it's snowing in your bedroom- like this comforter has. You've been warned.
