We just received the duvet set today! It looks just like the picture, kind of a soft gray and white. The duvet fits perfectly in the 86x86 insert I had on hand. The duvet has ties in each corner so it stays put. Everything is SO soft! I bought plain darker gray sheets (at *) and they go together well. Everything is soft! I also purchased King size pillow cases that coordinate with the duvet cover. They were way too long for the queen pillows, so I returned them. Not a queen size option! In fact, I didn't see the coodinating sheets until I purchased the duvet. It would have been too much flannel. I haven't washed the duvet yet, but I thought I'd write a review if anyone was interested.
I read several other reviews before I ordered and I would like to address some of the things I noted. First I have owned MANY duvet covers as I have lived in New England since 1985.....long cold winters. You have to have a down comforter. I get bored so long ago I invested in a wonderful goose down comforter in white so I could change the duvet covers seasonally (or whenever) One review stated the buttons in the placket were too small, if they're BIG they can pop open, these are the perfect size, second the ties in both top and bottom corners are terrific, they are usually only at the top. The cover is oversized and has a nice overhang on both sides of the bed. I have a king size and I walked back and forth several times convinced one side must be longer than the other.... finally it is SO soft and comfy!! I LOVE IT!! The package did recommend washing first (and usually I do) but this time I had to put it on the bed! I can't imagine it will get softer. My only regret is I could only order in the grey, I would love to have the sage green. I'm thinking about getting the Queen size for the guest bed so I can get the sage! Thanks Overstock, I'm going to keep checking for additional products from this company and other colors!
Sometimes it is hard to choose flannel because it often begins to pill right away. This Duvet cover and shams are so so wonderful. I would tell anyone who asked to buy this set if flannel is what they are looking for. It is a nice heavy material, has the ties inside the duvet cover so your comforter won't slide around and it washes like a dream!!!
This German flannel is wonderfully soft, thick, rich, well-made and beautiful. The light sage paisley is appealing and welcoming to the eyes and the shade is a match for my walls. My bedroom looks like a plus sanctuary now. I love this set. The pillows are not over sized as some reviewers stated but fit perfectly in standard shams. The softness is unbelievable!
This duvet set looks very much like the picture. It's a beautiful pattern of a deep chalky grey over a bright white background. I've already received several compliments on how nice it looks in my room. The reversible white pattern on the back is ever-so-slightly more ivory in color (only when compared to my crisp white sheets. As expected, the flannel is quite warm. I probably won't want to use this in the summer time, but right now in February it's making it awfully hard to get out of bed in the morning. The pillow cases are a little too large for my current pillows, but they work ok. Better to big than too small.
This set is made of a fabulous, blanket-weight cotton flannel that becomes thicker when washed. It is perfect for cold winter slumber. The topside pattern is taupe and grey w/ just a little white; the back of the duvet cover is white w/ grey pin-stripes. It's a very handsome set. Made in Germany.
I saw this duvet last year and they were out of my color choice which was sage. I was delighted to see it offered again this year and ordered the king. As duvets go, I have never had one of this quality and I am delighted. I don't buy flannel because it is hard to get decent quality but the quality of this flannel surpassed all expectations. It's just beautiful, generously sized, wonderful quality and a great price. I paired it with pale pink pillowcases. I couldn't be more pleased. I feel like I should say thank you!
I am very happy with this duvet! The flannel is really soft and pretty heavy weight-it didn't pill too badly or shrink when washed. The grey is a little more taupey in real life but still looks very nice. Another plus is the ties sewn into the inside corners to help keep the comforter in place.
This set is a great deal! I have had multiple people ask if I paid a fortune for the set and they can't believe it was so cheap! The flannel is so soft and durable. I have a dog that likes to sleep on the bed and the material not only hides the dog hair, but has held up to the doggies abuse. I would HIGHLY recommend this set to anyone. :)
The dimensions of this duvet cover will not fit any king or cal king comforter. The dimensions are 104" x 86" and that won't even fit a queen size comforter. I gave it as a gift and am now stuck with it because the return window passed. Not a happy camper here.
While the flannel quality is good the dimensions are more than far-fetched! I ordered a king size comforter duvet and it is not wide enough and 14 inches too long! So now I have to spend money to shorten it, great!!! Also the opening is not at the bottom but at the side which makes it difficult to insert the comforter and looks terrible.
The color is almost a pale taupe, much prettier than expected. Add substantial warmth to a lightweight comforter for colder months and looks really lovely in the bedroom. Not need for another coverlet. Good quality flannel, no trouble with pilling yet.
This duvet cover is amazing and worth every penny! The flannel is very thick and soft. I love the paisley grey on one side and the simple stripe on the other - very chic. It looks exactly as pictured, and I had no trouble fitting my comforter in the duvet - I did verify the duvet size and my comforter size before purchasing. I highly recommend this set.
First off...even though I saw "flannel" in the title, I didn't realize it is actually flannel. For the winter in Minnesota this is great. Its nice and warm and super soft. Love it! I will definitely have to buy something different in the spring though. If you have dogs that sleep on the bed, this is a hair magnet.
