Feels nice, haven't slept in it, and is still in packaging. (My dog would wreck it since he runs in and out all summer, yuck! So will wait til winter when he's not as mucky to start using this bedding full time) Material doesn't feel scratchy, have not washed it to see if the black will run onto the ivory or fade the material in any way. All the pieces included are listed and shown. (2 decorative pillows, 3 piece sheet set, bed skirt, euro shams, comforter and 2 shams) Wish there was a way to get the matching curtains! The look is sophisticated and classy in a room, and I am happy with my purchase. I ordered on a Friday night, received by the next Friday afternoon. A little late, should have paid for express shipping, but oh well. Packaging was REALLY beat up, and was labeled as a bed-in-a-bag set. Not a discrete package as I have previously received, which was disappointing. Was also a little high on price for the quality, but I am overall happy with it. With find some great black curtains to go with it, and I will be one happy lady!
