It washed up great, remaining soft and wrinkle free. If you have a cat that sleeps at your feet you will be happy to know that claw holes work themselves out in the wash and it is very resistant to snags. Nice rich brown color without being too muddy or red looking. I wasn't sure about the striped design, but it looks very hotel-like once one the bed with crisp white sheets. Overall very pleased with the fabric and the look for the price.
