I bought the yellow one and it is true yellow! I have bought MANY duvet covers and even though they say 'soft' 'microfiber' 'Egyptian cotton feel', this often isn't the case. I will only sleep under a cozy cover hence, the 'many'. When I took this one out of the package, I heard the tell tale sound of polyester and I thought "here we go again". Cotton sateen or microfiber don't make the scratchy sound but I washed it and it felt much better right out of the dryer. I put it on the bed that night and it was soft. Just the way I like it. Also, it has a zipper which I like. Button closures don't have the top seam and it makes them much harder to put on the duvet. I can only hope that the stitching holds up in my very old washer with the fast moving blades. Fingers crossed.
