Have always had thick down duvets that crackle and slide around. This down blanket is so thin - I fluffed it in the dryer a bit when rec'd. DIdn't think it would replace the duvet, but I was so wrong - it is perfect, does not feel heavy on you and you can adjust the warmth by what you put on top of it. Very cozy. The cream color was a bit more yellow than I wanted, but no biggie. Very pleased and would order another.
