I am very particular about my bedding. I've been spoiled by staying in some very nice hotels and I love quality bedding. I shopped around on Overstock.com to find just the right kind of duvet cover to suit my needs. It wasn't easy to find one with a good thread count (high, not too high, as I didn't want the cover to be too heavy), at a good price, with good reviews, in white. But I finally settled on this one and I love it! It is not too crisp and it is soft and smooth. It has a beautiful expensive sheen to the fabric finish, and the stripes give it a little extra something that plain covers do not have. I have cats that love to sleep (and shed) on my bed and their fur doesn't seem to stick to it. I bought a queen size and it fit my queen sized duvet perfectly. Love the shams.....the whole set is of excellent quality. I wish it had a matching bedskirt! You can't go wrong with this set!
