I don't want to seem like I'm a sucker for Overstock, but this is another fantastic purchase. I thought the comforter & shams that I was using were gorgeous, so I got this to protect them from dogs. It looks way better than the comforter, & can be washed easily. I'm kind of surprised none if the gathered & stitched areas have come undone, but it's taking a real beating & not showing it. I'm about to wash it for the 2nd time, if anything goes awry, I'll add it to this review. The texture makes it look so luxurious; it looks like a much more expensive set.
