The comforter is a beautiful color and the pattern is nice. The comforter itself is fluffy and very inviting. However, the manufacturer states that you should protect the comforter with a duvet. This would cover the beautiful cold and the pattern. So I put it on the bed without a duvet and after two days there were two small tears in the duvet. I was very upset. I checked Overstock.com's return policy which states that the item must not have been used and comes back in original packing. This was not an option, so I was stuck with the comforter. I ended up sewing the tears together, and I am continuing to use it. The manufacturer states also not to lay on the top of the comforter to keep the loft high. The comforter though light is warm. Would love it if it had not ripped!
