These seemed quite nice when we first got them, a little thin but okay. Unfortunately, just over a year later (rotated w/ other sheets--maybe 12-15 uses) the bottom came out of the wash with a large tear in it--from what I don't know...but I've never had this happen to a sheet before. In fact, in the past my sheets have lasted for YEARS! Not this set. Wouldn't buy them again.
I was skeptical when purchasing these sheets. However, I am truly pleasantly surprised. They are soft and very comfortable. The color is a beautiful buttery look. I have only just washed them once, so no pilling evident, time will tell I suppose.
The set is a lovely color of ivory, going niceely with my Halifax Gold 7 piece comforter which I purchased at the same time. I like having the matching pillow cases, as this is a set. The pillow cases fit my queen size pillows perfectly.
I usually avoid sateen because it seems to pill (not because it wrinkles), but these were a good value and we needed some new sheets, and the reviews were pretty consistent. Also, they are combed cotton, which is a better fiber than regular cotton, no matter what the thread count. We have washed and dried them and yes, they did wrinkle, but no, they did not pill (at least not yet). The sky blue color is very soothing and not too greyish, nor too aqua.
I have had and used these sheets for over 2 years now. They fit my 15" mattress very well and are very soft and comfortable to sleep in. They have held up well and have not become threadbare or torn. The only problem with these sheets is that they have pilled where I sleep. I use cotton sleeping clothes, but that is no excuse for the sheets to pill. They do not pill badly but it is noticeable at this point. I rotate between this set and one other set of sheets, so they have been well used over the past two years. Overall a great set of sheets for the price I paid ($35).
beautiful color, soft set of sheets, Very pleased with the fit on the mattress. It is a 10 inch mattress so not as tall as alot of the newer mattresses but there was plenty of room left for a deeper mattress. Very comfortable to the skin. Well worth the price.
