I ordered the "white" sheets in queen and what I got were "cream" color sheets. I was extremely disappointed b/c I was expecting a nice crisp "white" set. Since I already had to return a set of a different brand of sheets to Overstock b/c they fell apart after 1 washing - I just decided to keep them to avoid the hassle of re-wrapping, boxing and another trip to the post office. The pillow cases have a little pocket at the end of one the inside sides to keep the pillow covered by the same material which I thought was nice. The sheets are very soft - But THEY ARE NOT WHITE !!
