I must say I am very confused about the negative comments regarding this amazing duvet set. It must be washed before use due to the funky smell and also because the thought of using any bedding product without washing it just turns my stomach. If you wash it in cold water and then dry on a low setting it will not shrink. As far as it being wrinkled, of course it will be! I don't care what you wash, if you don't pull it out immediately and either spread it or hang it, it's going to wrinkle. Once I got it on my comforter and pillows then smoothed it with my hands, the wrinkles disappeared. I also love it because I have two spoiled dogs, one white and one black, who believe their world will come to an end if they don't sleep with me. This is the first duvet set I've owned where all I have to do is snap it out when making the bed in the mornings and the pet hair falls right off. It is soft, the perfect weight, and looks beautiful. As long as you don't have the idea that if you wash it in hot water it won't shrink or that you can leave it in the dryer for two hours and it won't wrinkle, then you will be very happy.
