I'm an Economist, so believe me when I say that I have done my research. This is a wonderful goose down comforter. May I also add that my comforter didn't have a foul odder to it upon arrival and the feathers have not yet poked me. I would strongly recommend this 600 thread count goose down comforter! I would like to thank everyone who has previously reviewed this product; their input was well taken into consideration. I hope this helps, best of luck!
