When I received this duvet cover set, I was hesitant whether the fabric with its golden details will be too scratchy. But not at all. Even my husband with his sensitive skin didn't mention anything. Besides it's so nice and rich looking. Though it says "dry clean only", I still washed it and dried it in low-medium heat setting before putting it on my bed - I don't believe that "dry clean only" goods cannot be washed. After washing, it retained its shape and color, and didn't require any ironing. Definitely recommend!
