This is an extremely lightweight coverlet to the point that it can be seen through as the batting is sparce and not evenly place. The shams should be ironed with care as the inside will melt to the outside when steam ironed (per the instructions). It will not come apart without tearing the inside batting off. It is not cream but rather yellow and thin stripes are brown. Not as pictured on the packaging or online. Not worth even the sale price.
