I bought this 2 years ago. Washed the coverlet once after one year and the stuffing bunched up and colors slightly faded. Had to carefully pull the stuffing back into shape. Washed a 2nd time the next year and it is even worse. Sheets and pillowcases were fine. I ordered a 2nd set because the coverlet is so perfect in my nautical bedroom but will take it to the dry cleaners when needed. Hopefully it won't get ruined.
I don't know who wrote the other reviews that gave this set four stars. This was a big mistake. Poor quality. The comforter is advertised as cotton, but it is obviously polyester. Stiff as a board. Tried to wash it a couple of times. Didn't help. I could do better at *******!
I bought two twin sets for my boys room. The comforters are good quality - still a little stiff after washing twice, but the boys (young teens) don't have a problem. The sheets are nice and comfy - just a bummer that you can't buy extra sheets separately. I never understand why companies don't do that. I had to buy different alternate sheets.
