I was a bit disappointed when I first opened the package and spread out the cover. I had thought the fabric would feel nicer but the underside of the cover has a different fabric that is more loosely woven and even had a flaw (hole) in it that I repaired before washing it. It washed well though and feels quite soft on the bed. It also is bold like I wanted and the bit of brown in it makes it look warm as well. I just hope it stands up over time.
