Purchased both,Bristol Paisley,and Spring Bloom,beautiful soft flannel,both have been washed several times and still look like bran new,have king size,a little hard to dry being so large in the dryer,I would rather dry outside,then hang over night,I just love them..! C*****
I purchased this because of the Laura Ashley brand, it is usually good. However this set left huge amounts of fluff in the dryer. It took several sessions to get it dried and each time more and more fluff came off. By the time it was dry, the fabric was so thin I could see the spaces in the weave. The fabric had been mostly fluff. Also the bottom seam tore, because the stitching was so close to the edge, it just came apart. Terrible outcome, I returned the set and will not buy a Laura Ashley product again.
I was so happily surpised by the quality (especially at the price!!) of this flannel. Spring Blossom colors were as pictured. Its washed up beautifully and even softer. I bought a king size, used it with a king size down comforter on a queen bed. Plenty of drop on the sides to cover the mattress and then a little. Buttons on duvet stay closed. No buttons or ties on the shams, but pillows are "enveloped" by plently of fabric, so they remain closed.
This duvet set is perfect! I loved it so much I bought another one for my guest bedroom. It covers my down comforter so it adds warmth and keeps the allergens at bay. We don't need sheets with this because this together with the down comforter keep us warm in the midst of very cold winters. It is well made and washes beautifully. I would definitely recommend this product. It is well priced.
I looked and looked for a duvet I liked that would be pretty and still stand up to 2 Shelties and 1 Egyptian mau cat. Love the pattern (it's even prettier than in the photo) and the weight of this duvet. The flannel isn't fuzzy flannel, as someone else had said, but instead has a nice, soft cottony feel. In fact, it would be appropriate to use in the summer in cooler areas. I haven't laundered it yet, but when I do I intend to hang it outside (inside out) so that it won't shrink plus will smell fantastic. Would highly recommend this.
This is beautiful as a duvet, but the picture is a bit deceiving, giving the effect of a plumpness to it. Think of two top sheets sewn together with no stuffing, so it is very thin! Still looks pretty, and the cat sure loves to lay on our bed! I wish there was a matching comforter made!
Bought this duvet set (and also the matching flannel sheet set) for myself, very happy with the quality. Very soft, warm flannel, durable. So far (several months) no piling. Fantastic price on Overstock played a big part of this purchase, wanted a great deal, top quality product... very very happy on all counts. Highly recommend this product.
I bought the duvet and sheet set in the king size. It is so comfortable and beautiful. The only reason I did not give it an excellent rating is because the duvet corners should have had ties to secure it the the comforter as most good covers have. It makes life easy when using a heavy down comforter in it from moving around. So, I cut up sneaker shoe laces and voila, I made it work! Would still recommend the set!
