The one thing I discovered when I unwrapped this set was that the fabric feels like a cotton suede. This is a heavy bedspread and good for cooler seasons. It is 100% cotton and washable, but using a commercial washer and dryer would be best for the queen size like I purchased. I am impressed with the quality of the design and stitching. All of it is well made. The trim is all black even though the photo on the website makes the trim look dark grey. It is a sharp looking set and I am happy with the throw pillows, too. I think this was a smart choice for me.
