I ordered King sheets in white. Upon their arrival, I threw them in the wash machine. They washed well, although a little wrinkled out of the dryer. No lint in the dryer, no piling. The sheets are soft and comfortable and have held up well after several washings. Despite using fabric softener, they are still wrinkled, but I would not hesitate to purchase them again as they are a great value for the price!
As soon as I received this sheet set, I laundered it and attempted to put it on my bed. The fitted sheet would not fit the king mattress no matter how I attempted to make it fit. This sheet was NOT a king sheet. The rest of the set was a king. Since I had laundered it, I could not return it so I am stuck with a sheet set that is useless to me. I am really angry.
Was really looking forward to the difference between the 400 thread count I'd always gotten before and this 500. It seemed softer, but the size of the fitted sheet was a touch larger, and did not pull smooth on the mattress. After washing it the first time, it did not shrink to fit and seems to have a tendency to pill. Otherwise, it is nice and soft, and the color is lovely.
