I had read other reviews about the smell, but dismissed them as probably just new sheet smell, but these sheets really do smell foul out of the package. It's a really weird smell, kinda like rubbing alcohol & manure mixed together. I washed them with white vinegar, detergent & ran an extra rinse. It took the smell out, but still left me wondering why organic sheets smell that bad out of the package. The sizing is generous. Nothing exception or lacking, just average sheets.
I investigated certs before purchasing and they are legit. The purple is awesome; my husband's favorite color. Quality appears good, feel is sateen. The smell was awful. CS made some suggestions and I followed; there was improvement (also offered refund). But I continue to air. Not sure if we will use or not. I hope they will investigate cause and improve because I really like the company's values. Heaps of potential at an affordable price. If you are not sensitive, buy them.
These sheets were shinier than expected (I was expecting more of a matte finish) but still feel very soft, for the price you can’t beat them. They did have a smell when it arrived, I washed them twice with detergent and a little white vinegar and I don’t notice it anymore.
I love these sheets! It’s so hard to find organic gray sheets for a California King! They are beautiful, comfortable, and breathable. The only reason I’m giving these sheets a 4 star is because they are very thin, and I’m not sure how durable they will be over a long period of time.
