These sheets are very beautiful. They looked more expensive when they first arrived. However, once we put them on our bed during the summer we quickly learned the sheets do not breathe at all. We woke up very sweaty and hot. During the winter, this isn't a problem, but they are too hot for summer use. After 2 months and about 6-7 washes, the sheets ripped in the middle and created a huge hole. We have a gentle, front loading washer. I was very disappointed and I do not recommend wasting your money on these sheets.
