The AmazonBasics Duvet Cover Set includes one cover for a duvet or a comforter and two pillow shams. Many reviewers are extremely happy with their purchase of this lightweight, airy set. 

We like the colors and designs but are not so crazy about the material itself – mainly because it’s polyester. 

Let’s see other positive and negative sides of this AmazonBasics set so that you can decide if it really is for you or not.

Pros and cons

ProsCons
– Super affordable
– Lovely designs
– No wrinkles
– The fabric is very thin
– It’s made of polyester
– All sizes aren’t always in stock

The price of 24 dollars for a Queen sized duvet cover is really low for a set like this. The polyester fibers make it very soft and wrinkle-free, so you can expect the fabric to feel nice to touch and look smooth. 

Designs are numerous, from striped and plaid to various types of florals or tiny shape patterns. Of course, there are also many plain one-color options for those who like to keep it simple.

The fabric gets dry quickly and it has no wrinkles thanks to the material but also thanks to its thickness – or, better to say, thinness. We are not fans of either. Polyester microfibers copy cotton but don’t really replace it. People with sensitive skin should be wary of this type of fabric in general. 

At the time of writing this post, there was only one size available on Amazon, so you can’t really choose there. The product is just too popular.

The AmazonBasics Duvet Cover Set has a thread count of 85 and 90 GSM (grams per square meter). Generally, good quality microfiber sheets have about 100 GSM, so these sheets count as lightweight. Thread count matters a lot when it comes to cotton, but it means almost nothing for microfiber, so always make sure to check the GSM of a microfiber sheet.

Pillow shams and duvet cover have snap button closures, but you can also choose zipper closure if that works better for you. The buttons are made of plastic and could come undone if pushed by feet during the night – not that we have any problem with these snap buttons, but some reviewers complained about that. 

These cool new colors are a cheap way to make your bedroom look like it came from a magazine. I’m partial to the striped pattern myself.

Material

The material is 100% polyester microfiber. It feels really soft and pleasant to touch, and those who typically don’t sleep in expensive (like, hundreds and hundreds of dollars expensive) bedsheets will probably find the thickness of these sheets normal.

They are not too breathable and could make some sleepers hot – it’s just how polyester works. But then again, if the weather is really hot, you can remove the duvet and use the cover only.

Microfiber sheets lack the crispness that cotton offers. They also tend to wrinkle less than typical sheets – one thing to bear in mind for those who care about such aesthetic details.

People with sensitive skin or those rare ones who are allergic to synthetic materials should stay away from AmazonBasics microfiber sheets, or any polyester sheets, regardless of how high quality they are. 

Care and maintenance

The Lightweight Microfiber Duvet Cover Set is machine washable. Make sure to wash it on medium temperature and tumble dry on low. If you need to use bleach, opt for a non-chlorine one. Otherwise, you could damage your sheets.

We’re not huge fans of the polyester material, but it does give it a light and airy feel.

You can get it shipped for free if you meet the minimum of $25 in purchased items. The sheets are $24, so you would need to buy one more item to be able to receive the set for free.

Amazon hasn’t been clear on where they produce AmazonBasics products, but for now, we know they usually come from China, Indonesia, Madagascar, and the like. There has been a lot of controversy about some of their products coming from illegal child labor or factories with poor conditions. 

If you’re concerned about where the items you buy really come from, you may want to check out other brands.
