IT"S LINEN!! You've got to expect it will wrinkle. Nothing an iron can't fix. Picture shows true color. A great value with a great bonus of the bedskirt being included - it really completes the look. I have not washed yet, but from looking at the fabric, a gentle wash should do not harm to this duvet. A great casual, yet classy look. Very confortable to sleep in - not too hot, not too cold. I would recommend to anyone.
