I did a lot of research on down before I bought this comforter. The stitching is strong, it's soft and fluffy to the touch but it's filled with some of the best down in the world. It's genuine goose down rather than the average cheap duck down from China. It also has a good fill count that will keep you nice and warm at night. I bought the twin/queen size and it hangs over both sides of our bed. I would definitely recommend this anyone looking for something comfortable and warm. Great value and quality.
