The word santeen conjures up images of satin and silk and softness...not scratchiness, which these sheet are. I've had them close to a year now and through several washes and they have not softend one bit. I won't go so far as to say they feel like cardboard. They are a bit heavy, so I only sleep on them during the fall/winter season. The photo makes them look shiny, but they are not shiny at all. However, they are a nice chocolate color. I have sheets with lower thread count that feel silkier than these. These sheets aren't awful, but they do not live up to their reputation.
