I guess I was expecting the quality of cotton sheets I grew up with. These are not that. They are thin, feeling rather flimsy, and I suspect they will not last all that long. The label fell off even before I washed them which seemed to indicate they were not made with the greatest of care. I didn't pay a great deal of money for them so I guess I can't complain too much. But I really am looking for a heavier grade of cotton, smooth as percale, and sturdy enough to last for several years, like they used to.
i think people way overrated these sheets...by the reviews i expected them to be softer...they are also a bit heavy...i personally like a light, soft sheet...these are a little heavier and not the softest i have had...i have never spent this much on sheets...and i think they are too expensive for the quality. they are pretty...but i would not buy them again.
