I really wish I had listened to the negative reviews. I was very impressed with color, it's a luxurious color of red, beautiful!! This was the first time in my life that sheets and pillowcases woke me up from a dead sleep. I tried for 3 nights, then finally replaced them with bamboo sheets that are a similar feel of silk, but without the slipperiness. It is impossible to keep these on the bed. I do have a memory foam mattress and that did keep the bottom sheet in place but the top sheet and pillowcases, every night woke me up picking them off the floor or unwinding myself out of them. My husband also hated how the rough part of his feet would nick at them. We hated these sheets! I will keep them and make something with them, because they are beautiful.
