The duvet cover is softer than I expected. The material is very nice. I have two places I sleep so I needed a duvet for my second home. The material of this duvet is wonderful, it sometimes slides, but not off the bed. I had two nights that I was a little warm, but I did not wake up sweating. I bought a full comforter for my new duvet. It was six inches smaller than the duvet. As I sleep alone, this is not a problem. I sleep with two duvets in the winter. I am thinking about buying another one to replace my old white duvet that that I bought at a home store.
