Did Buffy's 30 day trial - and I'm hooked. Could not send it back afterwards, in fact, I'm not sure I could live without it. It's super fluffy and comfy, but I don't find myself getting overheated in it. You don't neeeed a duvet cover with it, but I use one since I've got 2 cats and 2 dogs. Speaking of - the day I first put this blanket on my bed I came upstairs to find all them them chilling on it. Super rare sight. Everyone here is a Buffy lover!
Here's the scene: My husband has the ceiling fan on its highest setting. He is completely outside of the covers. Me? I'm shivering underneath two blankets and a duvet I think I got at Target many moons ago. Cue: Buffy. I don't know how exactly (science? magic?) but both he and I can be under the covers and perfectly comfortable. Best $190 I've ever spent.
