These sheets were very thick/heavy and very rough - we joked about them being "cardboard" sheets and hoped they would soften with washings, but after 3-4 months we gave up and had to get rid of them and buy some elsewhere. BEWARE very high thread count sheets - higher is not always better! These were way too rough, especially for sateen!
I like the feel and look of these sheets, but I was a little disappointed when they shrank as much as they did.
I was afraid that the sheets wouldn't be soft enough for me but they are very soft! I bought the sage color and love it. Washed well. Good buy!
