These sheets are great. Very heavy and well made. I first purchased the ivory sheet set for my bed and was surprised at how oversized these actually were. I have a very deep mattress and the fitted sheet was really too big but I loved how large and heavy the flat sheet was. You can actually use it as a light blanket on warm nights and feel comfortable. I had considered washing in hot water just to shrink the fitted sheet some but thankfully good sense won out and I washed them in cold. They did shrink some so please beware not to use hot water. The edges did wrinkle up some so I ironed them flat, hoping with age that this will stop. I did read another review of placing sheets in dryer separately with a tennis ball, thought I would give this a try next time as they are really too heavy a set to wash and dry both together. I have since ordered myself a set in sage. Just got them the other day and I hope I love them just as much.
