I love this blanket! I'm generally very cold natured so I look forward to using it in the winter. It's hot here now and I keep my AC at 62 degrees at night. When I wake up, I'm hot with this on. I don't recommend hot natured people use it to sleep under for the summer. It's lightweight, soft, not noisy at all, very fluffy. Best comforter I have ever owned. I also recommend you finding a duvet cover with a zipper. While this isn't heavy, it can get heavy depending on the duvet cover you purchase. I've purchased the covers from Amazon (zipper closure) and Bed, Bath, and Beyond (button closure) and I prefer the Amazon cover by far. You also get a better price on the Amazon covers.
