I received these the other day & just got around to washing them today. They washed up just beautifully, as I expected. Let me explain "why" I expected this even though this is my very first purchase of these sheets.... I purchased "Beech" sheets @ Bed Bath & Beyond and I was EXTREMELY IN LOVE!!!! with these sheets, however, after approximately a years worth of weekly washing they started to shred ;( I will assume some blame in this as you're not supposed to wash them with harsh detergent or color safe bleach and I did. So, I went back to BB&B to repurchase and learned they were gone/clearance (in sizes or colors I didn't want). Found these on Overstock with Beech in the name so I took a chance and they're just like them - Awesome!
My sister-in-law found modal sheets a few years ago and loves them. They are also on her guest-room bed and when I visit I love slipping into bed; so comfortable and soft! So, when it was time for me to buy new sheets I went looking for this great fabric. Directions say to wash before using but they felt so soft and silky I was tempted to go ahead and use them without washing first. But I followed directions and recommend you do, too. After washing they are even more soft and silky! Love 'em!
I ordered the gray sheet and it does not match the madison park black with gray duvet. I never opened up the package because I returned the duvet so I didn't need the gray sheets. They did feel very soft but the gray was a little off color.
