The comforter had some long threads still attached when I pulled it out of the package, but other than that, it was in great shape. I was replacing a well-loved XXXXX XXXXXX comforter that was great quality (lasted 10+ years and countless washes). I ordered this bedding and another comforter that I found on sale to see which one I liked best. RL quality has gone down, and this was almost as nice, especially for the price. We ended up keeping this one. My son likes it, and it looks surprisingly good on the bed.
