As always a good price and quick shipping. Unfurled them and slept on them. Soft, sufficient size _before washing_ and good color. Turns out we have an identical pattern in a different color. I hope they will shrink gracefully. My only requirements for modern day sheets on oversized mattresses is that they can tuck in at the foot; sides optional. Have to wait for that part of the review.

We needed a new set of sheets for our Queen size mattress. We got a great deal with Sierra Trading Post - $100+ dollar set for $35 on sale with extra 30% off. We washed them before putting them on the bed. When we got in bed I immediately felt roughness of the sheet fabric. I tried to get comfortable for an hour and finally gave up, putting a light quilt in between me and the sheets. They are now back in the wash with detergent for sensitive skin and lots of fabric softener. Hopefully this will help.

The best thing I can say about these sheets is that they are a good size for a deep mattress. I could not believe how stiff they were after the first wash so I washed them again and added fabric softener. No better so I did a third wash with more fabric softener. Still stiff but I ironed them hoping the heat would break down the fiber. I put them on the bed. I must have misunderstood what "crisp" means. The color is true to what the picture showed.

I found these sheets very uncomfortable/scratchy! Upon first receiving, I felt the fabric and was quite concerned that they would not be comfortable to sleep on. I figured I'd give them a few runs through the washer/drier and they'd soften up. After 4 cycles through the laundry... still very uncomfortable :( These are headed back.

Since manufacturers can make threads smaller these days than ever before, 400TC doesn't mean what it used to. These sheets are not in the least substantial, dense, smooth or crisp. I have been trying to think of the word for a material that best describes what they remind me of, and all I can come up with is "gauze". Obviously not exactly like medical gauze, but reminiscent of it nevertheless - just heavier. After washing, they are just sort of shapeless, insubstantial, semi-transparent cloth with no drape. Full of wrinkles and vaguely abrasive, no less.
One more example of the low-quality goods sourced from China that are flooding our markets these days.
