Anyway, as someone who has used down comforters with duvet covers for the last 30 years or so, I have to say I actually prefer this SmartSILK comforter to a down comforter. The main reasons are that there is no shifting of material around--it all stays nicely in place--and I don't have to fret about people sitting on it and messing it up (sitting on down damages the down and over time decreases it's ability to loft and trap air and thus keep you warm). Now when people sit on the bed, I just don't care. I also really like its density--it feels more like a nice heavy blanket than a comforter.
To put it's warmth in perspective, it is not as warm as a heavy down comforter (650 fill power goose down). In the winter, when the heat is kept at approximately 65 degrees at night (can't go colder because of the pets), I add a medium weight cotton blanket under the SmartSILK and its plenty warm. On cool northern California summer nights, when we sleep with the windows open, it's perfect all on its own. So it's nice that I can use the same comforter all year round. For houses that are kept colder at night, or if you're someone who sleeps "cold", you might need to add another blanket.
Background: This comforter is made using tussah silk, aka wild silk, (I asked customer care from Smartsilk it was not noted on their webpage) which is not as which is not as silky, heavy, warm, or durable as Mulberry silk. I chose it because it was the cheapest (and only) one I could find that could also be machine washed. It is also thicker and warmer. Silk duvets last 5 to 10 years. Mulberry silk is the best and most resilient and durable quality (due to its fewer imperfections), and will bunch less with time. I chose it because it was the cheapest one I could find that could also be machine washed.
Care: Smart Silk recommends using a duvet cover "made of either 100% cotton or a 50% cotton 50% polyester blend for best results" the enhance the "products health". I covered mine with a cotton organic pintuck duvet cover from West Elm and the combination is heaven (the buttons are made from shell not plastic even though you cant see them).
Maintenance: Although, all the maintenance guides that I found online, suggest not washing a silk duvet. Over washing silk comforters will cause the silk to bunch and degrade overtime. I only bought the machine washable one because accidents happen (in fact it already happened once). They suggest merely airing and vacuuming them [...]). Silk duvets last 5 to 10 years, with Mulberry lasting the longest.
Odor(?): The one I bought from costco online, didn't have any, the one I bought a year later from houzz did. So it is random, but it should be said that silk does have a natural odor that is often removed with harsh chemicals before being sold.Read more ›
I purchased at Costco after I learned of my dust mite allergy. I am a hot sleeper but love a good heavy comforter, this fits the bill. While some people think it is too cool, I think it is perfect. Also, it has good weight for not being very thick and fluffy.
Best part for me is my allergy greatly improved.
To summarize: Advantages--easily washed, non-allergenic, light-weight. Disadvantages--none found

Does what it says. Keeps me warm, but good for hot sleepers who sweat at night. Contrary to what some other reviewers posted, my comforter had smell at all. Read morePublished 16 months ago by D2J8
