I purchased the Latte, which turned out to be a cool oatmeal color. They wash well and are very soft and comfy. I haven't had them that long, so I'm not sure whether the material will ball, but they seem to be good quality so far. The pockets are deep to accommodate my thick pillow-top mattress, and the flat sheet is substantially sized with plenty of tucking material (nobody likes a short flat sheet). I'm picky about sheets and I would recommend these to others and purchase them again myself.
