I bought these sheets hoping for durable, soft-not satin soft, but not crisp. These are perfect after about 6 washings. They are very heavy sheets. I usually sleep with just them and a light blanket and it is perfect. I don't feel like they are going to tear when I put the fitted sheet on the corner-durable. I bought the sage and the color is true. If you give them a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.
