They aren't as saturated as they look in the phone pics below, they seem to be warm white LEDs inside a colour plastic envelope and they very closely mimic the sets you might have had in the 1980s, but at a fraction of the power consumption and fragility - they certainly have that very pleasing tungsten lamp glow when I tested them. I'll get my proper camera out and see if I can more closely match the colours.



for £22 I am pleased with them... shame there is only 40 lights on a string, seems like you need to buy 2 to cover a 6ft tree.
I'm still very pleased with these from Sainsbury's in 2021. I'd like some more, so I hope they are selling them again this year.
