I was very pleased with order. After reading the other reviews, I would describe the color as "linen white", not pure white. The set is very stunning on the bed; however, I have found it difficult to remove the wrinkles. Hopefully, as it lays on the bed, they will come out in due time. I am very pleased with the fabric, it is very soft and comfy. I was afraid of the polyester, but only the poppies are polyester.
