These sheets were really nice! It was different from what I expected, since I was used to really soft sheets but not thick ones like these. These were the first sheets I bought since living alone, and it was well worth the money. If you're looking for sheets that don't move around a lot, have a thick yet comfortable and rustic feeling then these are the ones for you. They don't heat up a lot either and work well in warm climates like California. The color is maybe a shade darker than the pictures but it looks pretty much the same. I also have to say their customer service is amazing. The sheets I came in had tiny holes in, and they sent a replacement out right away no questions asked.
