The color of the sheets is beautiful, a rich plum color. The sheets are not soft at all. I wouldn't say they are rough, but they are not comfortable or worth the money. Overstock has been great with the return process, so I will try to get a different pair from them. I am picky about my sheets and really thought I was getting a decent set, and these did not come close to meeting any expectation I had.
I can't speak to the quality of this product bc it didn't make it past the packaging after I saw it in person. It is DEEP, DEEP PURPLE, more like a reddish eggplant really. If that's what you want, it's nice but if not, do not order this product.
This is the best quality sheet set for the price that I have encountered in a very long time. If your looking for crisp, cotton sheets. These are for you. Yes, they are a bit darker in color than the picture shown but I was prepared for that by reading reviews. Having said that, their still a nice color. I hate the paper thin, limp sheets that are currently available in stores so I will buy more of these when possible, despite the limited colors available.
