The duvet is a very pretty, rich color (burgundy) but I've only had it on a day or 2 and I'm really not sure I want to keep it. I intentionally bought one with a lower thread count to keep it from being too heavy (or hot). I don't need a lot of warmth to sleep and we have another one with a 600 thread count and it is soooo heavy it's actually hard for me to lift when the comforter is in it. But, that one is Egyptian cotton and it feels so much better against the skin than this one does. It's just not as soft as I'd hoped (I pre-washed) but it still feels hotter than I like.
