I read the other reviews before purchasing these sheets. My husband and I agree; these are the best sheets we have ever slept on. He has extremely sensitive skin, so comfort was a priority. I was surprised they needed to be washed using a gentle cycle and dried on low heat. With my high efficiency washer and not so much dryer, the sheets are easy to care for, no ironing needed if you take them out of the dryer as soon as the cycle ends. We liked these sheets so much we ordered another pair.
