I was replacing a set of sateen sheets that were dearly loved. These seemed to fit the bill at a reasonable price. They are nice looking smooth sheets. I ordered the gold color, which was slightly more tan than expected, but a usable color. My biggest complaint is the lack of softness. To me these feel much more like percale sheets than sateen. They are smooth, but with a crispness. I was looking for sheet that were soft and silky, which I've found in some sateen sheets, but these weren't silky at all. Given that I'd already washed them and slept on them, I didn't return them, but I'm still shopping for silky softness.
