I bought this comforter over 6 yrs ago, and it has survived a toddle jumping on it and several episodes of cat pee. Therefore, it has survived being soaked in the bathtub with vinegar, rinsed, and hung to dry (which is against label instructions). It is toasty warm, even for a cold-blooded creature like me! My only complaint is that the stuffing seems rather lopsided; I think due to the stitching, the feathers don't distribute well even with lots of shaking. (This was true even before I washed it!) In our case, though, it works well since my husband is much warmer-blooded; I just put the thin feather side on his side of the bed.
