I have been pleasantly surprised by this duvet cover. It does show some wrinkles, but is largely wrinkle-resistant. If I were not too lazy to iron it, it would likely be wrinkle-free. But I just washed it and put it straight on the duvet out of the dryer. The material is very soft. I bought the STONE color. I'd call it a greige, that is between grey and beige. I think it's a sophisticated color and goes well with my colorful persian rug.
