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!
