I have had microfiber sheets before so I decided to try these. They had a chemical smell to them out of the package. The pattern is cheap looking but I would have tolerated it had the sheets felt good. I thought it was that new fabric feel so I washed them and put them on the bed. One night of horrible sleep and they went back to overstock. They still stunk and it felt like I was sleeping on sandpaper and I have never been so hot at night! Don't bother unless you want to put these on your guest bed so your guests won't overstay their welcome.
