I found the product very soft and attractive. I love the way it feels. I had a comforter on my bed that was silky. I found it hot and ofcourse it always wanted to slide off the bed. I used that same comforter inside the duvet and it works out great. This will be much easier to was because it's like washing a set of sheets instead of the whole comforter. I order the chocolate brown strip/solid. love the color.
