I love these sheets! I purchased a set of the white recentl and put them on my bed for the first time yesterday. I don't like pattern on my sheets so the scrolling on the hems of the pillowcases and flat sheet provided just the right touch of detail for my taste. I washed the sheets, following manufacturer's instructions, before putting on my bed for the first time. Although I wasn't able to take them out of the dryer immediately, they weren't very wrinkled and didn't need to be ironed (not that I would, it's too much effort). The highest thread count I've had before was 600 and I could immediately tell the difference, as these felt denser and heavier. Sleeping on these made me feel like I was in a luxury hotel. Obviously I haven't had them long enough to comment on how well they will last but I've heard that the more you wash them, the softer they get. I'm looking forward to having these for a long time.
