i was looking for percale sheets because the sateen sheets i have been getting will rip and tear with a little wear. these are very cute sheets and i really like the pattern. However i shouldn't have cheaped out with the 300 TC. the top sheet is actually pretty soft but the bottom sheet is more coarse than i would prefer. even my husband (you know how they don't always pay attention to details) mentioned that the bottom sheet was rough. i am hoping it will soften up with several washes.
