I love the Pink (soft pink color) ones, they are super soft. I got 6 sets of them. Then I ordered 2 sets of the WINE the color wasn't as burgundy (a bit darker not bright) as I would like but the problem is they are NOT SOFT like the Pink. Isn't that strange? The very same brand of pillowcase but a different color? My Mother taught me to wash everything before use. I washed the same as the others. I think it's odd. I'm keeping them because I need pillowcases but will order the PINK again if needed. Odd, yes? They are worth the price.
