After a chilly, down comforter-required winter, New England summers can be pretty toasty. Under that winter comforter, some of us can overheat a bit, causing others to get as far away from us as possible, in order to avoid a similar fate. This comforter is the perfect combination of comfy and cool. It provides just enough weight and warmth, without becoming an oven. It's been great this spring and summer. Highly recommended!
