I bought the Duvet cover for the King down comforter I purchased, , it is a great color and fit perfectly. I usually wash items before I use them, so I put it in my washer on warm and gentle..... I was upset because the seams ripped open and shirred so that I could not sew them back. I had to return it, and they no longer had the green in stock for an exchange. It may have been just this one that was defected because prior to purchasing thiis Duvet I read the reviews posted and none of them mentioned how they washed. Obviously, I was disappointed.
