Really soft duvet cover. Have not had any issues with pilling in the 3 months I've had this cover. The one thing I notice is that my comforter seems to move a lot inside the cover. It's not unusual for me to wake up with the comforter in a ball inside the cover. Originally bought the ecru based on the picture (looks light gray in the picture but it is a beige/off white), but sent it back because it wasn't the color I was expecting.
