The sheets are a nice set, they fit my mattress really well and are one of the few sets that are deep enough to fit the mattress with the mattress pad on it (pillow top mattress w/pad is about 15 inches thick). I was surprised at how stiff and scratchy they are...I have washed them several times in the two weeks of use to soften them up, but they are not getting any softer...they did shrink a bit though. Even after shrinking a bit, they still ft my mattress fine. Good buy, just not as soft as I would have expected for a 600 thread count set.
After searching for the perfect sheets (color, thread count & size), I took a chance and ordered these. They are beautiful sheets, if you don't have to sleep on them. Had them for 2 months. I'm hoping the soften but so far they have a permanent starch-like feel. The pillowcase in general is irritating to the skin. We have a King Cali so I like to buy sheets that will last. I have no doubt these will last, and probably great for all year round. But really wish the were softer.
