I've had this set for almost a year now. As the other reviews stated, the colors are off. It really is more seafoam green/teal/aqua than blue. The material is not soft at all, in fact my boyfriend hates it! He doesn't even like it touching him. It also doesn't hold the duvet well. Often I have to take it off the bed and fluff it flat to get the duvet back in place in the cover. I haven't had this problem with other covers. I think that the inside of the cover is a little silky, therefore the duvet moves around. This set has served its purpose, but I'm getting tired of it. It's an ok set for the money.
