I bought these to accompany the pink duvet set because pink wasn't available. This is fine as I like to mix and match colours. They are on the pricier side however the quality is fantastic. The material is the softest brushed cotton I've ever experienced and lying against them feels super luxurious. The colour is a beautiful pale duck egg, the pattern is slightly opaque in its softness. Very pretty. I haven't washed them yet but I'm hopeful they'll wash just fine.
