My husband and I have been sleeping with our new comforter for just about a year, and it has been exactly the upgrade we needed. The green is beautiful, and I love the frayed details on the edges of the shams. It brightens up our room, and makes us excited to climb into bed every night. It passes the softness test with flying colors, thanks to the linen and rayon blend, and the backing is 100% cotton sateen, which is silkier than normal cotton. My mother warned me that linen is notorious for being very wrinkly, but I'm happy to say that our comforter has stayed smooth and crisp. An added bonus is that it's machine washable, so you can save a trip to the dry cleaners, too.
