First off, the turquoise is bright, beautiful, and cheerful. Held up well in the wash. Still vibrant. These are funny because the cotton is typically Indian feeling... Has that stretchy loose weave quality to it that I hope holds up and doesn't end up turning into a gossamery gauze type amorphous mess. The texture is quite surprising. Has a sateen sheen but unlike a percale, these are nowhere near being crisp. Then again they didn't hold any wrinkles from the dryer. There is an almost quasi flannel sheet but not jersey cloth quality to these. Totally welcome on colder nights when crisp cotton would be too bracing to slip into. wow... I am really eyeing up that kiwi color!!
The sheets were a nice quality, had a good feel but the fabric was rather thin. The color wasn't a real orange. It was more of a coral color but very nice. It would have been fine for my needs but the set had to be returned because I purchased a queen set and it didn't fit the bed. I think a full size set was put into a queen size package. Unfortunate !!!
When searching for sheets for my bed, I discovered that it is difficult to find bright and fun sheets that are a good quality. Most bright and fun sheets are cheap kids sheets, while most good quality sheets are boring neutral solids. After much research, I chose these for my full size bed last year, and fell absolutely in love with them! They are excellent quality for the price and I could not have been happier! I do have to say that the colors were slightly darker than pictured though (I had both kiwi and turquoise). Anyways, I loved them so much, that I decided to order them again this year for my queen size bed, and unfortunately the only color they have in stock is kiwi (in queen size). I searched all over the internet and could not find the turquoise anywhere. I will be ordering the kiwi, but I wish these would come back in stock in all colors and sizes!
The colors shown on my monitor were way off on the bright green. They were more of an olive drab green. I know that colors on the monitor and actual colors may vary, but these two colors were just different. I can't attest to the other colors.The sheets themselves are sateen rather than crisp cotton. Nothing wrong with that, I just prefer a crispier sheet. I gave them away.
Pros: they're soft and the green color is pretty. Cons: gave them their first wash and removed them from the dryer as soon as it buzzed. They came out looking and feeling like wilted lettuce...thin, limp and more wrinkled than any sheet I've ever seen. The elastic barely fits around my mattress yet the fabric is so generous it puddles up underneath us.
I am glad I ignored the reviews about the thickness of these buttery soft 100% cotton sheets. They are so much like the Royal Velvet I used to buy and can't get anymore. Hoping the wear as well because they feel just like that. The color is spot on perfect. I could not be happier. Glad I ordered 3 sets.
