Rated 3 out of 5Â by skrispy very very crisp
I shouldn't be critical of the crispness, because they are called "crisp sheets" - but I was a little surprised just how crisp they really were. They are like a strongly starched shirt (if I drop the sheets on the floor, they will hold their shape, they don't fall into a pile like fabric normally would). My mom has the same sheets and hers are softer (I ordered them bc I love her sheets!), so I'm guessing (hoping!) that they soften with time and more washing. Otherwise the weight/quality is quite good!

I have been searching for these sheets for such a long time. I longed for the days gone by, of sleeping on fresh crisp sheets, like we did when staying with Granny and Pappy. I got mine in yesterday, and was so excited to get them in the wash and on the bed. They are exactly what I have been searching for. My king bed is about 12 inches deep, and there is at least 6 inches tucked snugly underneath. Very deep pockets. I was impressed by the thicker than normal elastic bands on the fitted sheets too. Yes, they did wrinkle coming out of the dryer. But after putting them on the bed they smoothed right out. I cannot sleep with wrinkles. My husband says I am the Princess from the Princess and the pea.. :) I was not bothered!!! These sheets are sturdy-which is another thing that I have been looking for. I will be buying more of these, and to make it completely authentic I will be getting some Chenille Bedspreads. We can't go back in the past, but it sure is refreshing to bring the past into today. I am a new grandmother and now my grand babies will get to enjoy the best sleep ever when they stay with me.

The sheets are soft, almost like old-time muslin ones. They were especially good after being washed.

I was really excited to find and order these. Buyer beware. They are HORRIBLE. The pillow cases are as stiff as cardboard. Two washes did nothing to soften these up. And the wrinkles - like balled up newspaper blowing down the street.
I did put them on my bed to try them out thinking the wrinkles might come out a bit and/or that I could live with them. They are like sleeping on fine grit sandpaper. There's nothing soft or comfortable about them. I had to get out of bed and sleep on the couch!
These are so incredibly bad that it's surprising anyone would sell them.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by barndance fitted sheet doesn't fit well
I was disappointed in the fact that the fitted sheet was longer than necessary and too narrow to fit the queen size mattress snugly. Its difficult to tug on the fitted sheet to get it onto the mattress. Secondly, as much as I love the feel of these sheets, they come out of the dryer wrinkled. I take the sheets and pillow cases out of the dryer promptly and fold them. Still wrinkled!!! I don't think I'd purchase this product again.

Purchased these in king size. Unfortunately they do not fit our mattress. Additionally they are VERY wrinkled when they come out of the dryer. I jump when the cycle is done to snatch them out immediately to no avail. Nothing but a bundle of wrinkles. For the price and description we were looking for much better performance. Now they will stay on the shelf and not the bed.

Finally some 100% cotton sheets! Since we live in Texas, we have more warm weather, and an extended summer....and don't want hot polyester sheets! I don't mind the wrinkles, but I'd love to find a laundry that still does "flat work." That would be heaven!
