Although this is a beautiful tablecloth right out of the package, as soon as I laundered it (per instructions) it came out of the washer totally different. I put it in the dryer for delicates and now there were little "pills" all over it. I needed a rather long tablecloth and this was the only one I could find anywhere so, I'm stuck with it. It will serve the purpose so I guess as soon as I put dishes, glasses and silverware on top no one will notice. At least, that's what I'm hoping. So, I'm torn between recommending this to a friend and not.
Used two of these tablecloths for an Angel Birthday party. They were perfect, but after washing they frayed badly on the ends. Additionally, every little thing will snag the fabric. They were an excellent value for what I needed, which was a one time party. I would not recommend for multiple uses.
