These sheets have been amazing! The color was true to the picture. They are thick, plush sheets with plenty of room to spare even with my 10" mattress. I only prewashed them once before using them and they feel great. The first pair of 1000 ct ive ever owned and I wont go back, we plan on order another set very soon. I was worried about the stripes on the sheets but they are no bother to me and it really gives them a nice look.
