Awful I thought these would be Natural as the name Natural Beige suggested. However, they were a pinkish beige so did not match the Natural duvet cover I had also ordered. Be careful when you are ordering not to get two similar lines mixed up. These pillowcases were from a different line to the duvet cover that I was matching. Sadly the pillow cases I did want were sold out. Also too small for UK standard housewife pillow.
