I previously had been using a silk comforter I bought when I went to China on a trip and loved it and had been searching high and low for one since I had bought a new bed and my old one was too small. This silk filled comforter is absolutely perfect! I use mine as a blanket under my quilt and it's not too hot or too cold. I love these comforters because they can be used year round and adapt to the temperatures. Cool in summer and warm in winter.
