The material and color(gold) are wonderful. It has a great sheen to it and feels real quality. I have other 1500TC Egyptian cotton which is softer but not as heavy/thick as this material. It also seems to get softer with washing. I've found washing this high TC Egyptian cotton not a problem and simply hang it to dry without ironing. Ironing will probably make it more uniform/smooth, but be careful not to burn it ! The size of king size is very generous - I managed to comfortably (no pun intended!) fit a super king size duvet inside this cover - it's that big ! I used Canadian goose down as I don't like to compromise! Some might think this material feels too hard and stiff (like canvas) but it's warmth and quality are what I want. It's also real heavy material - you'll feel it's weight from when you first receive it, to when you're under it in bed. It makes me think of parachute material?, it's that strong/solid. This material breathes and insulates really well. You won't be cold in bed again with this material. I've bought all my Egyptian cotton from the USA ( I live in the UK) - which shows how good it is, and this Egyptian cotton is the heaviest I've come across. This material makes you feel like a King/Queen in bed. Life's too short to miss out on this quality. It's a fraction of the price of similar bedding at Harrods (London), probably better quality and there's more color choices. Quality without paying for an exclusive brand name.
My husband is very picky about "texture" when it comes to bedding so I was worried that even 1500tc wouldn't be enough to satisfy him, but I was so pleased when we received this duvet cover. It really feels expensive and has lasted through numerous washes. I've literally had this duvet for 3 years!! It is just now beginning to show wear and tear with the material starting to fray in certain areas, but not a single button has fallen off (which is a problem I found with a lot of other duvets after washing multiple times). This duvet has a very heavy feel to it. If you like light and fluffy, this might not be the right duvet for you, but if you prefer a thicker feeling duvet then this is just right! We use it with a down alternative comforter and it's the perfect combo for both summer and winter since the fabric seems to stay cool. I would highly recommend this duvet!
I only use 1000 and above count bed sheets and duvets now ever since I found them in Overstock where is the only place I want to shop for all my bedding stuff. They are soft and thick which is exactly the quality I want. I usually dry my good sheets by line dry out in my back yard. I love the feeling of natural sun dry in Florida. This is the same way I dry my pure silk and pure linen/ramie clothing as I will never dry them in a dryer. By mother nature, a high count pure cotton bedding is always easy to get wrinkled. If it is wrinkle-free that means it had TOXIC CHEMICALS added to de-wrinkle. Please do not complaint about wrinkles any more.

I didn't expect this set to be as well made as it is, it is heavier than any other duvet set that I have purchased over the years and it is so soft. One of the things I like best about it, is that even after I washed and dried it, it was wrinkle free! Definitely worth the price!
I'm a little confused by the reviews that I saw. People said how soft this duvet was, but it does feel like it's made out of parachute material. Really heavy and stiff and doesn't breath well at all. I'm hoping that maybe if I wash it (50 times) it will loosen up. I saw the super-high thread count and thought it would be really soft, but it barely moves. Makes me afraid to ever buy bedding online again. I gave it more than 1 star because maybe I'm missing something and 1500 TC implies durability over comfort. If that is the case, yes, this does feel like it could last several hundred years.
I was totally blown away by how soft this set was. I was really excited waiting for them to get here, and it was worth the wait. It wasn't long, but felt like forever! This set has a heavier feel to them, which works really well for me, being a freeze baby all of the time! I am absolutely in love with these. I paired them with a set of 400 TC sheets that are absolutely beautiful! My fiance and I are very pleased with these purchases. I will be getting another color as a backup, because it is so worth it! I highly recommend this set to anyone! I couldn't be happier!
This duvet was so soft and hefty right out of the box. There is a review that it felt like sandpaper and it couldn't be further from it. The minute I opened it up I just wanted to spread it out and cuddle up for a nap! Best duvet ever!
So far I am very satisfied with this purchase. This is a heavy well made product that says quality, despite being sourced from China. It adds warmth and structure to our down comforter. The effect it creates is high end hotel bed. It is getting softer with washing, but it is solid not satiny. Comes with two king cases. Shipping was quick and efficient. Recommended.
This is the thickest most durable cotton duvet cover I have ever seen. It is soft at the same time. It washes up like a dream. If you don't like your bed linens a bit crinkly you may want to iron it or steam it in the dryer. This was not a concern for me. Absolutely love it!
You could use this as a blanket all on its own. I would suggest this as a duvet cover only in the cold months and as a blanket in the warmer months. Its very heavy and very High Quality.I feel like I am sleeping in a cloud of happiness. Also arrived 2 days after I bought it online!!! I love this duvet cover!!!

The duvet cover weighs so much I break a sweat putting the comforter in it. It feels like sleeping under the lead bib the dentist puts on you during x-rays. Also- stay away from the MD blue- its crazy bright blue like a picture of the sky behind the Acropolis in a Greek diner. I would have returned it but someone in my house put it in the washing machine. I ended up throwing the set out.
