These are wonderful sheets, and feel very luxurious. They do wrinkle when washed/dried but are lovely enough that they actually inspired me to iron them (flat sheet and pillow cases, anyway), and they iron beautifully. Care directions call for cold water/ tumble dry, although I have also washed them in warm water without problems. One note -- I had expected the stripes on the pillowcases to run the length of the pillows (perpendicular to the stripes on the sheets), but instead they run in the same direction as the stripes on the sheets. Not a big issue to me, but may be of interest to someone out there.
