I got these sheets nicely packed in a timely manner. They were a bit wrinkled when I unpacked them, so I ironed the flat and fitted sheet. When I got to the pillow cases I noticed some black marks around the opening of one of the ivory cases. I was disapointed, but I decided to keep them since they were rather small (about 2" x 1/8") and had already ironed the two largest pieces. Othere than that, the sheets are very classly, thick with a modest sheen.
