I needed a good comforter encasement due to my dust mite allergy. I've tried one made with synthetic material and it was not comfortable at all. So I decided to give this one a try, as it's cotton and the price was very reasonable compared to others I saw in stores and on line. I am very happy with the quality of the encasement and I sneeze less now. I also like the fact that it's made in the USA so there is no import duty to pay (I live in Canada).
Assuming this cover is doing its job of keeping dust mites out of my comforter (how do I know?) then it is a great product. Other than keeping dust mites out, it is super soft fabric and IS NOT lined in plastic as some are. It is just tightly woven cotton, so it is normal, nice fabric!
My down comforter stuffed up my nose every time. Unfortunately, cheap "down alternative" comforters are inferior to down in every important way. The only good ones, i.e. wool, cost way more than this comforter encasement, which itself costs much more than I ever thought I've have to pay for a cover. But, the math works -- now so does my nose.
Bought this for my daughter to cover down comforter I bought earlier from Overstock. She is estatic over both the comforter and cover.Since I have not seen the cover, unable to aseess color- but my daughter is happy with it! She would have liked it to be available in Sage- but covered up so no big deal! Glad to have been able to purchase items at good pricefrom Overstock.

No comfortor is complete without an encasement. It is an insurance policy meant to keep your comfortor clean against what happens in bed. It is wash machine ready on normal cycle. The cost is minimal when compared to dragging a comfortor into a dry cleaner to have it professionally cleaned. Not to mention what the dry cleaner may throw into the load when cleaning it. Spare yourself the headache and get the encasement with the comfortor - you will sleep better for it.
