Rated 5 out of 5 by Zurich Florentina Pros & Cons
To date I have owned 4 of these coverlets. For my personal use they are wonderful. Three small dogs sleep with me nightly. My coverlets get alternated, but whichever one is on the bed will get a wash every week to 10 days.
Too stiff --- softens with washing
Faded --- yes, they do fade wih repeated washings but never so much that I feel they are no longer useful
Too large --- these items come oversized, they do shrink with the first wash
Recently I changed from a king bed to a double bed. The king coverlets were still in fine condition to be donated to a women's shelter and I do not donate items which should become rags.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anapolis Beautiful but stiff
I bought this ensemble in the light blue.
It was simply beautiful, quality was excellent and weight was perfect for Florida but the fabric was stiff.
Maybe it would have soften after washing? well I do not know because I did not want to take a chance to be stuck with it if I washed it and the fabric remained stiff.
I had to return it. Now looking for another mattellasse but that is soft and cuddly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DianaInColumbus Meets many requirements for a great price
I looked for quite a while for a matelassé bedspread that would cover to the floor on a tall king size bed, would have a deeper, more interesting color than ivory or light pastel and would have a polyester mix fabric to keep its size and color after frequent washing, which I need to do because of my pets. This bedspread and shams fits all of these criteria. It is a very pretty green, deep enough but slightly gray tone so it's not too loud.
The fabric is a little stiff -- don't know if it will soften up after washing.
All in all, a great find. And free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meg48 Beautiful color and good quality
I ordered a second coverlet and set of shams as soon as I realized I had used the original to decorate my bedroom around. Didn't want to be caught without a replacement!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1999INN The spreds are very nice
we are a Hotel so time will tell on how these wear. We did a color set with vinegar and salt before we placed in our guest rooms. We were shocked how much die was in the water after the soak. My hope is they hold there color and last a long time. My goal is 4 years or more

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillyDan7 A classy bedspread. Beautiful color.
Haven't washed it yet, but it seems to have ample fabric for a bit of shrinkage. Beautiful color & matelasse design same as in catalog and on internet. Good value. I can buy another when I want to change colors.

The bedspread had a huge flaw in the material. Where was quality control? I've ordered other products from Linen Source before and this was the first time I've been disappointed.
