These are the nicest sheets I have ever purchased. I am always a little uncertain about buying sheets online as sometimes even the high thread count ones are scratchy, but not these! They are very soft and they are a perfect weight. There were limited colors available in the king and the one I ordered - Ivory - was not my first choice, but I actually am very pleased with it; it's a very rich ivory color. I have washed them a couple of times and there has been minimal shrinkage. I would absolutely buy these sheets again if/when they need to be replaced. Very pleased!
