To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
I will write a follow up review in a few months to evaluate how they hold up but as of now these are the softest sheets!! They are thin compared to other sheets I have, but the hems seem like they are stitched well. I researched sheets and thread count vs. types of cotton yarn and how yarn is made before I bought these, so I'm hoping what I read applies to this test! We shall see.
Good quality, but they wrinkle like crazy. I stalled them and it isn't easy to get them out. I'm use to cotton sheets which is why I didn't return them. All my cotton sheets from various brands and they are all GOTS wrinkle coming out of the dryer. They are not the softest, but they are soft and I enjoy sleeping on/under them. I would still recommend due to quality and being a person who works a lot of cotton products.
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.
