This duvet cover is, indeed, much more wrinkle-resistant than the first one I bought. It isn't perfect, but it is much better. It is also softer and smoother. I think it will work out very well, and I am about to buy another. The color is a soft cream color, with a slight yellow overtone. It is attractive, washes well, and feels soft to the touch. I don't think you can ask for much more.
