Sheets are so pretty! Got them in chocolate. So soft and smooth..... My husband even noticed and loves them! Sheets are thick but not too thick and very well made.They did however wrinkle when I took them out of the dryer but when they're on the bed they come out. If wrinkling is a big deal to you though don't buy them. PLEASE NOTE: I thought I had received the wrong sheets at first. Took them out of the package and they were labelled "cotton sateen" after doing research I found that mercerizing sheets(which it states in the description they are mercerized) is what creates the "sateen" so if you want something not shiny...again don't buy them. They are 100% cotton but they are soft and shiny. They look luxurious and romantic! The sateen thing took me off guard and made me realize my ignorance when it comes to sheets. But $** is what I paid for these for a Cali King and they're worth every penny! I've washed them and I dunno what people are talking about pilling.......I've seen no such thing....... But please, please follow the washing instructions for those of you who washed them and the first time they pilled........wash them gentle with cold water,tumble dry low.....all very important! Washed them twice already and no pills,no fading. These get 5stars from me! Sheets got lost in Overstocks warehouse before they shipped to me and I wasn't too impressed with their communication skills but once I got them(even with the delay 10days after I ordered), but since.....I couldn't be happier. Bottom line,I will absolutely buy them again!
