These were purchased (2 sets) for a rarely used condo property. After rare usage and few washings, the fabric has pilled up in the positions of where a body would lie. Disappointed and in the process of replacing as I'm embarrassed by them.
I have always wanted the strip design for my sheets. These are soft and comfortable. They are not as durable as the plane sheet without strips. Durable meaning the striped sheets have some peeling where feet and hands are located. Not real bad but noticeable. Probably stick to the plane type in future.
First the good. These sheets are soft, smooth and wash beautifully, coming out of the dryer with no wrinkles. Now the "but". There is something about the fabric that makes it difficult to manipulate to my comfort. If you like your bedding to remain in place as those who like covers tucked in under the mattress, you will love these sheets. You don't even have to tuck them under the mattress in order for them to stay put. And that is my problem with them. I am not one who likes to feel I am sleeping in an envelope. The first thing I do at a hotel is untuck the blanket and top sheets as I like to wrap myself cozily with my covers tucked around me, not the mattress....and retain the option of sticking my foot out if I choose. The top sheet in this set is nearly impossible to manipulate to my comfort. The part hanging down off the foot of the mattress stubbornly refuses to be pulled up around the "corner", clinging to the bottom sheet as though Velcroed in place. I actually have to go to the foot of the bed and physically lift up on that part of the sheet to free it from the cling. Ditto on the way it clings to my nightclothes when I turn over in bed, causing me to struggle to avoid being trapped in a twist of sheet and pjs. Bottom line...the sheets appear to be good quality and would probably be great for those people with whose sleep mode they are compatible. For me they don't work as well because of the constant competition between me and my sheet to determine who is boss.
