It is a luxurious duvet cover that I feel I owe to our family -- why not luxuriate when staying warm in bed, especially with the winter coming. I don't know for sure if the threadcount is 1000 (I have no way of counting!), but it is clearly extremely dense and similar to other high-count linens we have. The surface after washing is silky smooth and the material has a pleasant and solid body to it that is very satisfying. I'm very happy with it and believe I got it for a very good price.
