This set is very comfortable and attractive - it looks decorative without being overwhelming. The material is soft and extremely comfy to sleep in. The black sheets haven't faded despite many washings (I have had the set for about 2 months); they do show lint, of course, but that doesn't bother me much. You can't see the sheets when the bed is made and I haven't noticed lint on the skirt yet. The comforter does wrinkle, but no more than most other comforters I have had, and I'm sure you could take care of that with a steamer. I love that the black fur of our dogs and cat don't stick to the comforter and pillows. I would recommend this set, and hope that I can find another style of equal quality for our guest room!
