I bought this coverlet to place over my rather bland looking down comforter. It looks rich and reminds me of a coverlet you would see in a higher end hotel. The quality is good, it has a nice tight weave to it. Judging from some other comments, I think some folks purchased this coverlet to use as a blanket for warmth -- while this coverlet could certainly be used in lieu of an additional blanket in the warmer months, I had always thought coverlets were a "covering" to go on top of comforters, and not supposed to be used in place of one. This coverlet definitely would not be warm enough to use on it's own in the winter.
