I was so looking forward to receiving crisp but soft and smooth percale sheets and the price seemed reasonable but I was so disappointed. They're 'stiff and rough." Can't bring myself to rate them Poor because they are deep pocket and fit ok but I wish I had returned them instead of washing before use to see if they'd get softer and smoother.
These are the best cotton sheets, and I have purchased many sets prior to this set. They do wrinkle if you dry them all the way but I dry them on the less dry setting on my dryer and make the bed when they are slightly damp. I love them!
These are very nice sheets - purchased a set for our queen size bed which has a pillow top mattress plus a 4 inch topper. The sheets fit very well with the extra deep pockets. They seem to be a very good quality, but as some other reviewers mentioned, they're crunchy! Nice if you like that type of sheet, but I prefer soft and cuddly. We've washed them 3 times so far but the crunchiness doesn't go away - again, that's great if you prefer that type of sheet. We won't be purchasing anymore, and will probaby replace them with a softer sheet, but for anyone who likes the crisp-type sheets they're great.
I have a 10 inch memory foam mattress with a 4 inch memory foam topper and a 1.5 inch tufted mattress pad. All of this is on an adjustable bed frame. These sheets have such deep pockets that the fitted sheet stays tucked under the whole mattress, even when the head and feet of the bed are raised!! The top sheet is long enough to stay tucked under the foot of the bed, and the sides are plenty long as well. The fabric is very comfortable. I had been looking for a percale sheet as I have been having "private summers" recently and get very hot at times during the night. I like the high thread count egyptian cotton sheets, but they are a bit warm in the summer. These sheets are wonderful, lightweight and cool. They do wrinkle a bit, but that is to be expected with natural fiber sheets. I ordered these sheets in white which makes me feel like I am in a 4 star hotel. I have already ordered another set of these sheets so I can simply flip flop the sets on laundry day. The only reason for the four star rating is that I have only had these sheets for two weeks. Although they did wash well, a good sheet set should last a couple of years at least so I can't vouch for that yet.
I have a fairly deep king size bed, but when these folks say these sheets are deep - they mean deep! In fact, they are so big that they overhand all corners of the bed and literally hang down the side of the mattress. Not only that, but they are not at all what I expected from percale sheets. I used to get Wamsutta percale - which was fantastic! But these sheets are scratchy and just not good at all.
The pockets are very deep. We have a very high mattress with a four inch foam topper. At least total of 18-20 in. There is room to spare on the pockets. I didn't get a hernia from trying to get the pockets on the mattress. Also flat sheet length is quite ample. Plenty on sides and plenty to tuck in. Pillowcases are generously sized. Wish they came in other colors.
The sheets are high quality but the fitted sheet is way too big for the bed and is wrinkled. I even have a foam mattress pad which is 2 inches thick on my bed and the fitted sheet is still too big. They are also very wrinkled when they come out of the dryer so if you like unwrikled sheets these are not for you.
Great set of sheets..crisp & cool, but still very soft. They do wrinkle a bit but thats to be expected. Seem to get softer after several washes & I wash in cold water and don't shrink, in fact they are well oversized and I have king bed. Good value and quality, but if your're looking for silky type like sateen these are not for you.
Not exactly what I was looking for but closer than what I have tried lately. I just wanted those cool, cotton sheets like my grandmother always had. But the egyptian cotton seems to wrinkle after washing and continue to wrinkle while in use. Eventually it doesn't look very neat on a made bed.
These are great sheets if you love percale, like I do. Percale is the crisp, fresh cotton that our grandmothers had before there were automatic dryers to create a mess of wrinkles all over them. :) Contrary to what is commonly known, the best way to launder percale is: first of all, wash on permanent press or delicate cycle, [leave them wet, don't overspin.] Next, shake out and hang on the clothesline! It works better than the dryer, saves energy, smells fresher, and will leave far less wrinkles! Iron only if you feel like it. I love these sheets. They're becoming harder to find, so was glad to find them here. Personally, I feel that they outlast sateen sheets as well. They do soften up a bit after several washings.
I didn't know what to expect when I placed the order because I've ordered so many different sheet sets and been completely disappointed. These sheets wash up soft and comfy with a minimum amount of wrinkle. wonderfully cool, the perfect weight, and long enough on the sides so that if you turn over the sheet is still covering you!!! I just purchased my second set. These do not pill, shrink or break down after being washed. Mine I have washed at least 20 times and they are still wonderful...
