I loved the sheets at first. They're very soft and the grey color was pretty. After only a few weeks of sleeping on them and washing them a couple times, they started to pill. I tried to soften the pilled spots with a fabric shaver but the threading just wouldn't hold up. And they also began to tear in the corners. They were nice enough in the beginning but did not last long at all. I wouldn't buy them again.
Overall, they were fine the first time we used them. I washed them on cold, and dried on low. They didn't fit our average depth mattress after that. I also found them to lose their softness, and wrinkled badly. After a couple of washes, we donated them.
This was the first sheet set (white) I bought when on my own after college (when I saved a few pennies) and I still love it. I've had it for 5 years and used them full-time for 3 years. They are crisp sheets but still soft (it may take 1-2 nights sleep to really soften up). This set held up great over washings and really, the elastic on the fitted sheet stuck around way longer than it should have with how much I used them and stretched them onto my mattress. I only moved away from these b/c I bought a different size bed. However, these are still the primary sheets on my guest bed. Essentially, I love them. They are great!
These are my favorite sheets yet! Love them! They arrived very wrinkled in the package, so I was a bit concerned that I might be returning them. However, after I washed and dried them for the first time, and put them on the bed, they were great!
