OK, so I got a down duvet for Christmas and was dying to use it but most of the covers I seen were out of my price range. After much searching and review reading I choose this set. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. I had questions that no one else answered so I will try to help out others...the tags do say dry clean only but I turned it inside out and used the gentle cycle with no problems, the underside is a soft fleece like fabric in the blue/green color, there is no clips to hold the duvet in place so if that is a concern you will want to order some, closes with bottons, my shams matched perfectly, it is very shiny fabric and gives an overall nice look, not too stiff but not overly soft either. Now the color...I have a medium blue bedroom and it no where near matches it. I would call it a robin's egg blue/green, somewhere between teal and sage. The sheen of the fabric messes with you a little bit. It would look fabulous in a dark brown room with the color as a highlight as it is an odd shade to match. My duvet is an oversized queen so I ordered a king cover because according to the measurments the queen would be too small and I figured I would rather it lay flat in too big of a cover then be lumpy in a too small of a cover. Well I think I should have ordered the queen size, it fits OK length wise but about a foot too much width wise.
