The futon cover has no fabric content label. I doubt it is 65% Cotton/35% Polyester Twill. It is more like cheesy polyester that they use to make graduation gowns these days. It is shiny and has a scratchy feel to it. Twill has diagonal parallel ribs - this is just a plain weave. I think of upholstery grade fabric as being somewhat thick - this is thin enough so, when folded flat, it fit in a bag somewhat larger than a gallon size zip lock bag. The construction of the cover seems okay. There are no raw edges - they are finished with an overlock stitch. The zipper works okay. I haven't put it on the mattress to check the fit. I bought a different cover at a store where I could check the fabric. I like the color. If you don't mind the fabric, I think it's worth 30 or so dollars. From the description I thought I was getting something better and a bargain.

i thought this was a great deal on a futon cover... which it was, if it had lasted. The futon cover looked great until after a few weeks, I started to notice that it was already pilling and looking worn. It now looks quite tattered and worn desppite being only a few months old. the price is right but if you want it to maintain it's appearance for any substantial amount of time, I would invest in something nicer.

I agree with other reviews, this cover seems like 100% polyester. I would not call it twill, nor soft to the touch. It fits big on my futon mattress. I have bought others online which have fit better. It did not come in any type of package other than the envelope it was shipped in. I have no idea what brand it is, or what the material contents really are. I am not impressed with this cover. I would not purchase it again nor recommend it. I do like the 3-sided zipper which makes for easy on/off. My last cover did not have this luxury and I had to wrestle with the mattress every time.

This was so easy to put on....I was utterly amazed. It unzips on 3 of the 4 sides.....it can't get much easier than that. I've not had it long enough to wash it yet, but it appears to be very sturdy. I have a 10 inch futon and it fit nicely. Not snug, and not loose....hard to explain. With the cover on, and the mattress on the frame in the couch position, the cover was a perfect fit. I Plan to order more so I can keep my futon covered with one while I wash the other. I am very happy with this cover!!!!
I was really impressed with the quality of this futon cover. The fabric is very thick, and has a certain sheen to it as well. I read countless ads and commentaries before ultimately deciding upon this cover. I am quite pleased and would definitely recommend this futon cover to others. With a few fancy pillows (similar to the ad photo) it makes the futon look really nice.

This is the first futon cover that fits perfectly and I love the twill fabric. I washed this before I put it on because I wasn't sure if the color would bleed. It is the best cover I have every had and it looks beautiful. Will definitely purchase again.
Spent a lot of money on the futon set we bought, but with three small kids, they ended up spilling every drink they ever had on the futon mattress (even though they weren't allowed to drink in the living room.... go figure.). So I was in need of a washable cover that looked great. This cover provided that and more. I got the navy blue color and after 5 years it's still great. It did shrink a bit after the first wash but since then there as been no fading and no additional shrinkage. LOVE IT!
Great value if you're just looking to cover something temporarily. Not recommended if you have animals that love sitting on it. It's really hard to remove fur. Material is not that comfortable, either, and feels rather synthetic. For a 10" thick full futon mattress, it's also quite bulky.
This is definitely a "get what you pay for" situation. Pro: It zips down on three sides so it was super easy to put on my futon. Con: the material is HI-DE-OUS... just like a pair of polyester "slacks" from your grandmother's closet. But the price was right and if the futon is going to be mostly utilized as a guest bed (as is mine) then it is a fair value. If you are going to utilize the futon as a couch - you may want to save up and buy something a little less apocalypse-proof...
