I made this pillow using white acrylic yarn with a strand of yarn that is a shiny white (look at the close up pictures) so it just adds an extra dimension to this design. One side of the pillow is smooth and the other has little petals and the center in multicolor blue yarn. It looks like an adorable little flower. The cover of the pillow is not removable and would have to be spot cleaned only. The pillow insert comes with the cover. Fits 16" pillow form. The pillow is soft and textured at the same time! Very comfortable and great addition to your living room or nursery.
