That'* what they ALL say. j/k...thanks Jim, I'm getting the bedding ready to ship. By the way, it'* not in the original bag, but it IS brand new. My girlfriend took it out of the bag to look at it, put it in her closet, and never used it, but threw out the bag it came in. It says "dry clean only' on the tags, but it IS machine washable, it said so on the orignial bag, and I also checked with the company.
