Dye lots can vary due to many reasons such as when linens are purchased from multiple vendors, added at different times and when some pieces are laundered more than others. We do make every attempt to make sure the shades match as close as possible, but there is no guarantee. Note that all computer monitors are configured differently and can display colors differently. For the most accurate color reference, please request a swatch.
