I have heard that 'only older people' like these sheets, abd that they are a wrinkled mess when they're washed. Considering the list of things that are added to our materials to make them soft and wrinkle-free, I'll take these wrinkled, crisp, natural sheets any day of the week! These sheets do come out wrinkled (and I do not iron them) but they are so unbelievably comfortable and I love the colors offered. I say "YAY! for old-school awesomeness!!
