The yellow color was pretty true to what was seen on my screen. The sheets are very light, I'm not used to this, but good for summer, I suppose. I didn't like that the pillow case are purposefully left unhemmed on one section-it makes them look sloppy. The sheets are the quality you would expect on such a low price. They feel like sheets that are very close to being thrown away...we'll see how long they last, If they last 6 months, that will way exceed how flimsy they are, but like I said you the quality is the expectation, given the price. I love the bedspread and the sham covers and the little pillow and that was the main reason for buying the item.
