The color is fabulous, I ordered the blue and the chocolate. I found them to be exactally as pictured. The flannel is very soft and has been washing well, I followed directions exactally and will continue to do so. I place this cover on a light weight down comforter and got exactally what we wanted. There are ties on the inside corners to hold the comforter in place. It is extremley soft and very cozy and warm. If you want soft flannel with warmth this is it. Consider the type of washing machine you will be using, if you don't have a front loader but a machine with an aggitator it can really put extra wear on this and make it's life shorter...
I ordered the Duvet cover for our master bedroom, as I have a down comforter that leaks feathers. I ordered the Euro flannel sheet set last month which we love. So I fiqured this would go with it. It is durable (I have washed it several times) and it looks better than new when it goes back on the bed. You can really tell the quality of the fabric with this. It is wrinkle resistant and heavy weight. I am more than pleased with it.
For a good price, this item (duvet plus two shams) is adequate, pleasant, but not great. What's not great is the quality of the flannel, which is perhaps only one step above cheaper items available at WalMart or elsewhere. So we think this is adequate for the purpose, and perhaps the price, but don't get your hopes up that with German engineering, this is classically beautiful, or thick fabric, or luxe. It isn't. Just OK by our standards, running a lodging operation here in Telluride, CO.
Not only was this product great because it was so soft and warm but it fit my mattress great. I have a Dormia mattress that is deeper than most other mattresses. I had a hard time finding sheets that would fit and stay around my mattress but these do the trick with a little to spare if i wanted to get an extra pad. If you've had this same problem than this product is for you!
I bought this item a few months ago. When it arrived, I was overjoyed. It was soft and cozy, and made our bed feel really warm and inviting. My husband said that it was the softest duvet cover we've ever had. I ordered a queen, for our queen comforter, but it was significantly larger and had a lot of extra fabric. The issue is fixed (somewhat) by the ties on the inside, which hold the corners of the comforter in place, but that's not the reason for my negative review. Within two weeks, the fabric of the duvet cover pilled up into tiny white balls which converted our otherwise clean bedroom, into a snowy landscape. These little white balls have stuck to every other fabric surface - our pj's, our carpet, and even to the curtains. I returned the item (thanks to overstock's great return policy) and got a new one. Within two weeks - same problem. I am now returning the second one and will not be buying this product again. You shouldn't either.
Nice heavy weight, soft, high quality flannel. I followed the instructions of another customer to prewash the sheets in vinegar instead of detergent in the washer and clean out lint trap every 10 minutes during dry cycle. No evidence if pilling or shedding so far. Love them!
I decided to buy flannel sheets when I realized how much more comfortable it is to get into bed on a cold winter night when your sheets don't conduct the cold. While it's easy to find flannel sheets, finding a flannel duvet set is tough. This set is AWESOME and contains two standard shams and one duvet cover. The duvet cover has button closure along one side that is cleverly designed so the button surfaces are on the INSIDE - you can't feel them or see them. There are corner ties inside the cover meant, I believe, to keep your comforter in place; I don't use/need them so I tuck them away. The shams are generously sized and have an envelope fold closure that holds your pillow securely in place. The flannel is exactly as described, both very soft and heavyweight. It is a little lint-y at first washing/use, but perfect thereafter. I've had the set for about a month and can say that it washes well, remains soft, does not felt, and retains its color. The color of the natural/cream is more yellow than it appears, but I've gotten used to it. You will enjoy a toasty, comfortable night's sleep under this duvet. Definitely buy it. The price is phenomenal for the quality (beautifully sewn seams and buttons, heavy luxurious fabric), and Overstock shipping and customer service is excellent. Enjoy.
I have never bought flannel for bedding but I not only love it but am going to buy another! I have 2 dogs who can usually destroy bedding fairly quickly with their nails but this duvet is holding it's own very well.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great
we had already bought and are using the pillowcases and sheets that matched this, so when the duvet popped up (thanks O'stock!) I grabbed it immediately. it felt very soft when it arrived but after washing it was not nearly as soft as the sheet set - which had become MORE soft after washing! if all I had was this duvet I would be very pleased with the way this feels, but I own the sheets so I know how soft this fabric COULD be. still very nice; just wish it were as soft as the matching sheets. other than that, it is generously proportioned, comfortably heavy-weight flannel with a nice tight weave so I expect it will wear well. the color is an exact match to the screen color. I would most certainly purchase this product again! last night it was -15'F. here and we currently have feet of snow on the ground and are expecting more this afternoon. so I can say with some authority that these sheets and the duvet will keep you warm and toasty!
Before I bought this Duvet Cover I read the reviews which were very helpful and honest. I have to say this Flannel Duvet Cover is so cozy and warm my husband even likes it. My first purchase was for the queen bed in the spare room. I liked it so much I had to get one for our king bed, then I wanted my Daughter to have one, so I purchased a 3rd one for her. The flannel is very good material and the opening is nice and big. I got the natural color which was a good choice. It is a very warm color. Even though spring is on it's way I will use it with a lighter comforter.
I bought it again. Fisrt time Slate duvet (yes, the colour is not the same as pictured, it has more green) with Mineral sheets, and now Terracotta duvet with Moss sheets. King size duvets pillow cases are really big. You never want to leave a bed with this flannel, promise
love the weight of these flannel bed coverings,washes nice with few wrinkles. Very soft...but, I ordered the color Slate....I thought it was me, so I asked a couple of friends to give me their opinion...they are not the color pictured. Very green. Fortunately the pillows I already had had some of the same color in them or I would have had to send them back. I will be back for more in a different color to switch out.
This duvet cover is a really nice product. The flannel is pretty thick, which I like... and not too fuzzy, which I also like. The color I ordered is mineral, which is a blue/green/gray... the actual color is more saturated and darker than it looked on my screen, but I prefer it.
I ordered the chocolate color (color true to picture) and it is very comfortable, cozy and warm. It feels great on your skin and looks good too. It is very soft to the touch. It has buttons instead of a zipper which didn't make a difference to me. Even though it said 'machine wash warm, delicate cycle, tumble dry low', I washed it cold, delicate cycle, tumble dry extra low. It came out great (no shrinking). Just make sure you check your lint trap half way through the drying cycle (it left a lot of lint). It did not 'pill'. I am very happy with this purchase.
I have now purchased two of these. THey are heavy flannel and wash well. I like to protect my expensive down comforters from stains. It costs more to dry clean a comforter than to buy this cover. Some minor pilling but does not bother me on a cold winter night, I just appreciate the lovely flannel, 100% cotton. Well made and great price. Can't touch this at upscale linen catalog GH.
