Rated 5 out of 5 by sophie25 Very Soft
I've never bought sheets at anthro before since the reviews often say that they're scratchy. These sheets aren't scratchy at all. The Egyptian cotton makes them very soft and the 300 thread count makes them a nice summer weight (compared to my 800 thread count sheets that were just too heavy for SoCal summers. I bought them in mint, and I'd say the color is pretty true to the website (though slightly more vibrant as seems to be standard with anthro photos). I was nervous about the embroidery holding up but I've washed them at least 5 times in a top-loading machine and they've been ok. There's been 1 or two spots where the embroidery looks iffy but they've stayed the same after each wash.
Underneath the embroidered layer is the typical double folded 3-4 inch edge you'll find on any sheet, this might be a problem if you were looking for an accent over a solid comforter as it only extends to the base of the scalloped edge. The pillows have an envelope closure which is a nice and unexpected touch.
The only thing I'd say that's negative is that the color of the sheets themselves was more of a an off-white. I also have the cirrus bedskirt in white and the sheets are definitely darker.
If only they also came in a pink embroidery!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MBBR Disappointed in these
Maybe something has changed about this product since the previous reviews, but I'm disappointed in the quality of these sheets. They are not stiff, but I would not call them soft. I bought them in white, which almost has a dingy purplish cast to it, plus they have a red line on them in at least one place. (I haven't completely opened up the sheets.) Not that it matters, but the pillow cases don't have the envelope closure another reviewer mentioned. Have not yet decided if I will exchange because of the mark on them, or just return.

I got this sheet set in the coral color, which is sold out now. The color was brighter than the picture, but I still love them. They are very soft right out of the bag. The quality is good and the color did not bleed when I washed them in cold water as per the instructions. I am very pleased with these sheets.
