At first I was hesitant in ordering this Duvet cover, as the color was listed as "denim" blue. But when it arrived, I was pleased to see that it is actually a beautiful light blue. The pattern is barely discernible but gives the cover a nice sheen. The cotton is soft and any wrinkles come out after a couple of hours on the bed. I have an over sized king comforter, and this cover fits perfectly. Having the matching pillow cases is an extra bonus! I am extremely pleased with this purchase!
