The color is spot on to what I wanted, which is why I purchased these. But I haven't used these for more than 2 months and they are already pilling bad! I haven't washed them excessively and even if I did, they should not be in such bad shape after a couple of months. I can feel it on my feet when I get into bed and on my legs. I'm on the hunt for more coral sheets to replace these. These are also supposed to have deep pockets but they slip off my mattress every night just like I was trying to avoid. I will not buy these again!
