I bought this set for my son's girlfriend. We were both VERY happy when this showed up! This came out of the package as a soft, supple comforter with just the right amount of fill to keep her warm, but not too hot. It is made of a soft, cottony type material. She loves the colors, and the decorative pillow is really cute! The only thing that would be better is if this came with a matching turquoise bed skirt.
