These sheets are exactly as pictured in the photo !! I purchased the blue plaid. They are very soft to the touch, especially after washing them, and they fit the 13" mattress very well =) Overall I am happy with the purchase and I will definitely buy another set once I change my color palette in the room. I recommend these to anyone !!
I ordered ONE set of these sheets, and when my order arrived, I had been sent two sets. I was also charged for two! However, when I went back to review my order, I had only ordered one set. Since it is so unbelievably expensive to return anything, I now have two sets of sheets that are not even close to the color shown or described (burgundy/merlot....turned out to be bright purple!!) This was my first time (any probably my last time) ordering from Overstock.
I purchased these sheets over a year ago and they are still holding up. I purchased red, but I only picked that color because I read other reviews that stated this is more of a purple color. So, with expectations that I was getting purple instead of red, I was satisfied. The sheets are very durable (I have two dogs who sleep in bed with me), and very comfortable - especially in the summer!
I ordered the MERLOT but what I actually rceived was definitely a purple colored sheet set. The color variation is huge if that's where the discrepancy lies because I didn't get a color even close to the one labeled as Merlot on the website. Other than that, it's a nice sheet set for that price range.
