I have purchased three duvet sets (two full/queen and one king). The full/queen easily handles a king sized medium weigh down comforter and the king easily handles an oversized king heavy weight down comforter. With each separate purchase the quality was exactly the same as was the colour/dye lot which is not always the case. They wash well and do not fade, nor did any of them shrink, although I would strongly suggest drying on a delicate or cool setting or even hanging dry. The feel is a thick sateen texture that has a crisping sound when fluffed up; the same sound like the cotton sheets of old that were starched. I love this set and my only gripe is that there isn't a broader colour selection. I would definitely recommend this set to anyone who enjoys sleeping in luxury.
