This is an authentic reproduction of the "feather tick" that most Americans slept with before central heating. However, ours has been converted to a soft, luxurious goose down. This is truly a 3 Dog Comforter with over 40% more than the Sundowner! The Homesteader is made intentionally robust, for those that like the feel the weight of their comforter holding them to the bed. It also looks tremendously lofty due to that extra down. But worry not; the down is kept safely in the 230 thread count cotton shell. So open the bedroom windows wide, turn down that thermostat and envelope yourself in the Three Dog HOMESTEADER!
