I'm loving this Down Comforter. Good Deal...Anyone who knows Down Comforters realizes that you can't do better than Overstock for quality Down products at VERY reasonable prices. Do your research before investing. I've seen comforters at double and triple the price in stores and on the web with less quality! Please remember. Even though it has a Beautiful 500 tc Fabric and is pristine to look at, KEEP A DUVET or COMFORTER COVER on it! When you invest in Down it isn't as important to have a real high fabric count. You'll be covering it anyway. You would want at least a 300 tc to keep it tight enough not to loose feathers. In order to save yourself dry cleaning bills and maintain the quality of the down, It has to be covered all the time or you'll have problems!!As much as we don't like to think about it, as Humans we naturally shed at night. Skin flakes, hair, nails, dirt, sweat plus moisturizers, deodorant even bodily fluids from our mouths, noses and ears. Sorry, I'm not trying to be gross, just realistically informative. Without a cover, down has a tendency to ABSORB, the moisture especially. Ive also seen people fold them up and stick them in a closet to store, or worse in a plastic bag where it can't 'breath'. The moisture can grow into mold. So now your beautiful investment will be yellowed and smell. Good Luck with that!So read what most Manufacturers recommend. From day 1, encase it in a Duvet Cover that fits. I prefer 100% cotton (Doing this will enable you to go 3-5 yrs before you would even need to spend the min. $25. to dry clean!) When you buy the duvet use your actual measurements, or a few extra inches is o.k. Remember they can shrink in either Hot water or the Dryer. I avoid both. Duvets are so versatile you can change your room's look weekly. When I lived in Europe, I began using the Duvets the way they do, as the 'top sheet'. They are made of sheet material to begin with, and it is so simple to make the bed up as well. I know all the info out there can be overwhelming. Probably the 1 thing you want to know is the 'Fill Power' Do you feel cold at night even with 2 reg blankets ? Do you live in a cold climate? I live in N.E. Prefer a fill power of 550 to 650. Also there is a difference between "White Goose Down" "Down& Feathers" "Duck or Waterfowl Feathers" Lastly,In the U.S.A. There is no such thing as "100% Down" It would be impossible to ensure that there wasn't 1 single feather mixed in the down.
I replaced my old down comforter with this one, since the old one had yellowed the the down had shifted around some, and this one makes me happy I gave it up! The comforter is warm but not heavy, and the stitching should help keep the down inside from shifting around. Glad I bought it.
This comforter not only looks great, but is neither too light or too heavy -- it's the perfect weight. I put this in our guest bedroom, which is painted yellow. Combining this comforter with a few other pillows & decorations, it looks like a very classy hotel room in there now!
