The packaging states that the comforter is dry clean only. However, the site said that it was machine washable. I found that you CAN wash the comforter in a washing machine, but wash it on cold and on delicate. Otherwise, it might fall apart. The sheets are also not made for a thick mattress, so if you have anything larger than a 12-14" mattress, you may want to get a different bottom sheet to fit it. The sheets are silky and comfortable, and very cool for a teeanger's room, but beside that, this is a set for a smaller mattress...definitely a full with a thinner mattress.
