This was the first set I have ever bought with the microfiber comforter, and pillow shams.I admit I was hesitant, but I must say I LOVE it! So soft and snuggly. Best of all my cats don't 'pick' at it like they did with the cotton - they just curl up and go to sleep. So happy I bought another Madison Beg in a bag set, in microfiber, but a different design for my guest room.
Quite a bit more gray than any hues of lavender or purple. It is okay but it is quite slippery and tends to slide down very easily. Good quality fabric so if you can tolerate tucking and want some gentle gray with some light hue of a hazy purplish comforter, go for it. The lavender patterned sheets fit my deeper mattress and are all cotton, bonus!
I recently painted my master bedroom in a color called "ash violet" and was seeking new bedding in a gray tone. This one is primarily grey, but has some lavender undertones that go perfectly with the new wall color, do the shams, sheets and the small decorative pillow. I am very happy with the resulting effect.
I absolutely love the comforter set. Love the color. I had been looking for a while, so thankful I ordered this set. The sheets aren't the highest thread count, but an added boys to a nice, soft and plush comforter at an amazing price!
