After opening it up, there was a prominent loose thread that I trimmed with scissors. Hopefully, this doesn't mean the stitching will unravel in the coming months, but only time will tell. There was also a bit of a chemical packaging smell to it, similar to what you get when you first open a mattress. For being a "chemical-free" comforter, this was a bit concerning. I aired it out for a day before using it, and it dissipated fairly quickly over the following week.
