I am always worried about purchasing something for my bed without feeling it first. I hoped that because it was microfiber it would be soft enough. I was pleasantly surprised! I bought this cover to replace a microfiber duvet cover that I hated! My old cover held onto every single dog hair it could. It's easy to brush stuff off with just my hand on this one. I bought this cover for my king sized down alternative comforter. It fits great. The ONLY negative thing about the cover is that the comforter moves around inside the cover. A simple solution is to attach ties on the inside which is what I think I will do. The cover is a bit thin so if you're looking for something thick this is not the cover for you. The color is just like the picture which is great. The cover is a great buy for the price. I hated to spend a lot of money on one with my messy husband. He proved me right after he dripped chocolate sauce on the cover. I didn't wash it right away and worried about staining. I just rubbed in laundry soap and threw it in the washer. No stains left! Unbelievable! I would recommend this cover!
