My husband and I just bought this, and as soon as we pulled it out of the box, we noticed that the material was a little scratchy and uncomfortable, so today we decided to put it through the wash, on cold, as per the instructions. As soon as we pulled it out, we noticed that some of the fabric had melted in some places, and had ripped and pulled in other places. We did not wash it with any other items, and our wash basin was plenty large to accommodate a queen size comforter. Needless to say, we aren't pleased. We loved the color combination and the design, but this is just terrible quality.
