I had ordered these sheets 2 years ago and fell in love with them. When deciding to update, I went right back to the same ones in the same color. These are definitely NOT the same sheets nor worth the money, as they are very thin and scratchy. Unfortunately, Overstock indicates once opened they cannot be returned. Therefore, I washed and tried to see if fabric softener would make them better. Not at all...therefore, it appears $40 has come gone. Invest $30 more and get better sheets.
