IF you want sateen sheets, I would recommend these. The quality seems fine after several washings, and the color (gray) is fantastic--dark and silvery, but not TOO dark. The ribbon trim is very attractive. They're a little heavier than I expected--I use them as my only cover while sleeping (summer in the south). I've never had sateen sheets before, and I'm not in love with this weave. They are NOT cool and crisp, and they don't have the fiber softness of other sheets in the 300 thread count area that I have owned. It's hard to pin down--I guess these sheets are "softish." The fabric is a little stretchy when you make the bed, so things can begin to look a little out of line. Overall a good deal for the money, but not the cool, crisp-yet-soft sheets I was hoping for.
