I recently purchase the black set of the Avron Cotton sheets. The pattern is not quite the same as the image presents but it is however a great looking set of sheets. The black pattern and the grey contrast beautifully. They have washed well, however they do have a rather odd smell to them. Very subtle but none the less odd smelling. I do hope this will become less apparent after a few washes. I noted the same smell with another sheet set I purchased from OS. The pillow cases like most bedlinen sets I have purchased from OS are huge.
