For me, this comforter was well worth the money. I hesitated at first because I freeze at all times and was unsure that it would keep me warm enough. However, the doctor's instructions that I would need to launder my bedspread and blanket every week convinced me to try the comforter. Despite its light weight, it is toasty warm during the night. I bought the blue gray color because of the practicality and it looks beautiful, and is soft as silk. As a plus, the bed is so much easier to make up in the morning.
