I love this duvet cover and would definitely recommend it. It is extremely soft and it holds up well in the washer. I purchased the chocolate brown which is very rich in color, no fading after washing. If you have pets however I wouldn't let them on it, I already have a couple of frays from kitty claws. Alas, kitty is no longer allowed in the bedroom. My only other complaint is that the ties don't keep the comforter in place as well as I had hoped.
