This King size (50 oz.)Silk filled Damask stripe 260tc comforter seems really nice. It is heavier than I thought it would be, but not too heavy. I would say it is about twice the thickness of a good quality handmade quilt. The weight is like two nice quilts as well. I purchased this because I read that silk helps to regulate body temp so you don't get too hot or cold. Seems good so far. Also, doesn't attract dust mites. I really don't know too much about silk comforters. I have read that like down, the heavier, the warmer. I also understand there are different types of silk fill. This package only states size and weight as Twin 63x86 30 oz. Queen 86x86 40oz. King 102x86 50oz. This weight seems good for this part of the country (southern northeast). The FQ size is small for me. I like plenty to turn down and over hang on the sides. I purchased the King. I use mine like a bed spread. The King would be perfect for a Queen size bed in my opinion. Mine bed is a Full size. A little big, but have plans for a Queen bed and like the extra room. The Damask stripe outside is very pretty! Also, has a pretty satin piping! Too bad it has to be in a duvet, it is very pretty! The only draw back for me is that it has to be dry cleaned. I did read one account of a person who accidently washed their silk comforter. It came out okay. I will keep mine in a duvet and dry clean when needed. They do not need dry cleaning every season. It is suggested to hang it out on a line in the fresh air and sun. The price is great compared to other Silk comforters I have seen. Overstock transaction was perfect! I give this Silk filled comforter five stars for price, quality and comfort!
