This set is really great! The material is lightweight. It has a linen or rough cotton look - not shiny. The trees are really nicely done. . .delicate. The green is really a soft color - true to the picture. It looks like a more expensive set - not sure about cleaning yet. But it seems that it would do ok in a gentle cycle and low tumble dry. Funny, the duvet sold separately says machine wash, but the three piece set says dry clean. I'd say my husband really likes it, but what would that mean to anyone else reading this! It is a soft look without being too feminine - or masculine. Another great Overstock buy!
