Living in the south, we don't usually have long frigid winters. We do have cold weather, however, according to my husband our house is like living in the artic! What can I say... I have hot flashes. I purchased this in the king size and it is a perfect fill (19 oz ) for three season use. The size is generous and fits perfectly in my duvet cover. Due to the high thread count, I don't have feathers flying around the room. I was so impressed by this blanket that I decided to purchase another king size. When my son came to visit I doubled the king size to make a twin and used the ties inside my twin duvet to secure it. He was toasty all night. When our weather gets colder I will secure this extra king size into my duvet along with the first one I purchased to have a 38 ounce fill. As soon as these blankets arrived, I put them in the dryer on very low heat for 20 minutes to fluff the down. The twill cover will seem a little rough at first, but after a week or so the blanket is not rough and doesn't make a crinkle sound. I decided to make some changes to my duvet covers and the blankets. I purchased some binding / hem tape and sewed additional ties into all of my duvet covers. I also measured where the ties were and marked those areas on the blankets. I sewed some narrow binding tape to the fabric of the blankets (not the pockets that hold the down, just the boarder fabric of the blanket) making a loop in each marked area to secure the blanket to the duvet tie. I now have ties and loops at every corner top & bottom, 1 in the middle at the top & bottom of blankets and 1 on each side. This also eliminates the bulk of tying wads of blanket into the ties of the duvet. It makes it so much easier with a king size comforter to shake the duvet to fluff the down. Now I don't have to search for the comforters inside the duvet! I hope this review was helpful. Thank you STP for great customer service and amazing prices.

If you look at the product picture and see that the turned down corner looks like a flattened ravioli, then you have the complete picture of how much loft this blanket has. It does seem to keep you warm, but there is not a lot of loft nor does it appear to plump-up with time. Our weather just turned warm so it will be difficult to judge how well it will do until the temperatures dip again. We'll keep it on for a while and see how it does. I can tell you our 18 year old cat likes it. Hope that helps.

Not too hot, not too cold, so it's a nice weight for us. Somewhat stiff feeling at first, but it's fine now. We are finding little pieces of down floating around the bedroom, but I think it might be just remnants from the making of the blanket. We're pleased with the purchase so far.
