This is a beautiful, expensive looking & feeling duvet cover. Fabric has a beautiful sheen & soft drape.. The duvet & sham (I got twin size w/ one sham) are well constructed. Others have noted the willow green being a bit different from what is pictured. I would describe it as a light, sagey green that is a bit brighter and less grayish toned than many ¿sage greens.¿ It is a nice, neutral color that would go with just about anything. You will need to press duvet & sham/s before using as there are significant creases from being folded, plus you¿ll need to press out the flanges that are shmooshed & wrinkly so they¿ll be nicely squared off. The shams are the type that open across the middle of the back (unlike some others that open on the side and have buttons). The hem stitching on the duvet goes on 3 sides (not across the top, where pillows would cover it anyway) of the ¿top side.¿ The top end is where the button closure is The underside is plain, without the hem stitching; there are two potential looks with this duvet ¿ with or without the hem stitching. When I need to wash mine, I intend to launder it in warm water and will always dry it on my drying rack (away from sunlight to keep from bleaching it by the sun). Doing so will prolong the life of it greatly, as being beaten in the dryer is hard on all things. This is my first experience w/ a duvet, but I think I¿ll love it because I love the flexibility of putting a heavy quilt inside or something light for warmer weather, and being able to launder the outer cover. I just read last week that vapors from dry cleaning are potentially unhealthy, so I love being able to wash the duvet cover and getting to protect blankets from dust and body oils, etc. I will note that getting the blanket & quilt inside is quite the chore, but I don't mark it against this duvet: I think it's just the nature of the beast, as they say. Getting the blankets down in there is quite a task. There may be an easier way to do it, but I struggled quite a bit to get mine in. Also, if a person is looking for that crisp, perfectly neat look, I don't think a duvet cover would be a good choice for them because it just has that slightly rumpled look. Sort of European. I am fine with it, but just want to make that point to someone who has never used a duvet cover. I put my willow duvet w/ an ivory colored bed skirt and it looks beautiful. Understated elegance.
I was looking for all-white accessories and bedding and looked around quite a bit before I bought this duvet cover set. This was definitely the best value for the money. It feels very luxurious and has buttons one one end so the comforter does not move around and can be adjusted. There is detailing all around the comforter and it looks very elegant and pretty. The high thread-count makes it feel very luxurious and it looks great on the bed. The pillow covers also looks great.Definitely recommend!
You MUST buy these sheets! Get rid of the old and in with the softest most wonderful sheets and duvet set ever! First of all your bed will look like something out of a magazine and did I mention how soft they are?! My reccomendation: Buy neutral colors, I reccomend either white or ivory. White is my personal fav- and you may think White! No way! I have kids and pets, not to mention a husband. Well, ladies, white can be bleached back to beautiful, what are you going to do with a dark orange or light blue? Also, if you use any facial cleanser or treatment with benzoyl peroxide it will bleach the color right out of your pillow cases, even if you rinse it ALL off (just a tip) Enjoy!!!

I have been an Overstock customer for quite sometime and have always been pleased with my purchases. Recently, I purchased the Hemstich 400 Thread Count Duvet Set. The color was rich, the fabric soft. I pre-washed the duvet and pillow cases prior to use. If you are planning on putting them in the dryer, make sure to pull them out promptly once the dryer cycle is complete. I left mine in the dryer for a while and when I pulled them out, the fabric was extremely wrinkled. However, once I inserted my quilt inside the duvet and laid it across the bed in a matter of a couple hours, the wrinkles had disappeared! I will continue to purchase from Overstock; 1) because of the quality and money-back guarantee; 2) because of the value...(+ free shipping) you really can't go wrong!
I hate Hate HATE buying things online, but this was one of the best purchases I've ever made from the internet. It was plasticy out of the box, and I was upset about that, one wash in the machine though and it was like a feather. Fabric is heavy, and easily cleaned, not so oversized that quilt floats around, perfect.
I am very impressed with this duvet cover. I needed a duvet cover that could be used daily and withstand repeated washings. This cover is very soft, has minimal wrinkling if removed from the dryer upon the cycle's end and best of all... IT FITS! The insert fits in the corners and side to side well so the duvet just needs a good fluff in the mornings and it settles down nicely on the bed. A Definite Thumbs UP for this item.
The color is not what I expected at all. I would return it but don't want to pay the shipping as this was already an exchange. I feel that when I exchange with Overstock I am loosing money continuing to pay the shipping fees. Sorry. I thought the Fawn was much lighter as the picture shows and was more on the Pink sid instead of the gold tones.
I ordered the white king, and it was cheaply made. There were loose threads, flimsy stitching, and the fabric was horrible quality. Unfortunately, I only received a partial refund when I returned it because I tried it on my comforter. The dimensions were larger than described, and it didn't even fit. What an utter waste.
Looks nice on bed, but because it is solid, tends to show wrinkles more. The hemstitch detail, although pretty, is a pain to iron (I only do the shams) and puckers after washed and dried. If I can still find it on this site, I am going to order more of the "wrinkle resistant" 300 TC with the stripe pattern. I had tried both, and definitely like the other better
Bought this queen comforter cover in fawn. Out of package, it had a sheen. Disappointing, because I was specifically avoiding sateen. I washed after receiving it. It came out of the dryer very wrinkled and fuzzy - as expected from cheap sateen-imitation cotton. The pillow covers came out distorted after washing, shrunken a bit too. The material is comfortable, but definitely not nice-looking because of fuzzing and extreme wrinkling. Would not recommend this to anyone.The shipping was prompt.
We have purchased two of these sets in Chocolate, and no regrets here! It is a very good product, well priced, satiny soft to the skin, it washed well and dried with minimal wrinkling (I dried it on low, and removed it from the dryer immediately after the cycle was complete). I hate ironing in general, and huge sheets in particular, so I just dressed the bed as soon as the sheets were dry, without ironing, and hubby didn't even notice ;) The Chocolate color is very rich and looks great. Much to my surprise, the sheets don't "attract" cat/dog hair like our other bedding sets used to - definitely a plus for our multi-pet family! We like this set and hope to get a lot of use from it. /Overall: 5 out of 5.
Just beautiful...the feel and the weight of the material is exactly what I wanted. I bought the king size for a queen bed as I have found, in the past, a queen size usually comes up shorter than I like on the sides. The king size fits just as I imagined.. The stitching gives a very nice touch, it's just perfect for the guestroom I am redecorating..
I bought this duvet in light blue, the color is exactly what I expected based on the photo. There is a stitching design about 2 inches from the edge around the top and sides and I didn't realize it when I ordered it. The stitching design does not negatively impact the look or feel of the duvet cover - I honestly couldn't be happier. The material is very soft and not too heavy. Now that I have this duvet cover, I love my down comforter even more!
I love the color and feel of this duvet cover and feel it was a great buy! Just a few notes: the light blue has a lot more color than what shows in the online picture. For me, that was a plus. The shams are more like pillow cases than shams and I've put other shams behind them. Again, for me, not as issue, but for others who might be considering a buy.
The quality of this Duvet is excellent. I was very pleased with the quality of the cotton fabric. The Duvet is light weight and the wrinkles fall right out of the fabric. I would definately recommend this Duvet. I purchased two and if I had more comforters I would definately buy more. Well worth the price.
