I purchased this cover in blue. It is a nice pastel blue color, just a touch on the "French Blue" side. The fabric is really lovely. Because it's 100% cotton I was concerned it would wrinkle easily, and need to be ironed when it came out of the dryer. Was I surprised! It washes beautifully and comes out of the dryer wrinkle-free. I'm not really sure why this is called "micro-fiber", but it is a thick, high quality cotton, and super soft. I highly recommend it.
