I received my duvet very quickly and wash it in preparation for use. It came out from the washer and dryer in excellent shape, color and condition. The weight of the fabric is just right...I had a different one and I felt as if I was suffocating!! The color and construction are very nice and look great on my bed. The shams are light on one side and then the contrasting color on the other so this is a very versitale grouping...love it! I ordered the white/beige...beautiful!
