The sheets were very thin and felt itchy to the skin. It was worth a try because they were a reasonably priced, however it was my loss. Even though this set of sheets were a disappointment I have some microfiber sheets that are very nice. You know the old saying you get what you pay for.
This is my second set of microfiber sheets. These sheets are great in the summer.They are so light and airy(remember what micro means) The fiber is is soft to the touch once washed. The shrinkage is minimal..I dry them on medium heat. I have to say the medium blue is more like a gray blue..
I'm not exactly sure what I expected when I read "microfiber" for the sheet set, but I did expect some level of softness, if only because "microfiber" for other things, like couches, equals "soft". Well, they're not. They feel like the lining inside cheap hotel comforters. It's difficult to explain, because it's not a common texture for fabric. The only other thing I can think of that feels like this is the inside of a fabric shower curtain. I really don't like these sheets at all and wish I'd spent a bit more for some jersey sheets.
I don't know what all the negative feedback is because I found the sheets (two sets) pretty darn great for the price. Yes they are thin but the pocket depth fits over my 7 inches of foam and 5 inches of mattress topper(s) with room to spare. The flat sheet has enough material that it doesn't fall short on both sides like some of my more expensive sheets do. I washed the sheets before using them and they washed well; I didn't find the elastic to be problematic but if it did I'd just safety pin or sew where there a tear to make them fit tighter but so far so good. I think for the money they are a bargain and unless they fall apart in my hands (doubtful) I'll just say they're a pretty good deal and, after all, you get what you pay for but sometimes you get a little more!!
I am very meticulous about my bedroom color scheme. I also wanted the sheets to be microfiber as well. I have both here.. Its a beautiful color, so vibrant. Its soft and very comfortable. I an anemic and I get cold very easily but it maintains the warmth from my heating pad. Its one of the most comfortable sheet sets I have ever owned.
