I laundered the duvet before using. It came out fairly wrinkled but after on bed for awhile looked better. I just did a second laundering because of little dirty paw prints. This time there were very few wrinkles. Takes a little time to put a king size on by yourself but fairly easy. Also adds xtra warmth to the down blanket we use. I'm very pleased with this duvet. If you are looking for a fancy look this is not for you. It's a great country look. I bought the ecru but don't remember if that's what the color is called. Very pleased.
