Wildflower Percale Sheet Set
Top Sheet too short
I love the fabric. The bottom sheet fits a 13" deep full-size mattress well. But, the top sheet is way too short. I've had to sew an extra piece of an old sheet onto the bottom to be able to tuck the sheet in. Before adding to the length of the fabric, there was only 2" at the bottom to tuck in, and that's not enough to keep it tucked in. The top sheet will never fit a 16" deep mattress. It feels like the bottom sheet was deepened to handle modern mattresses, but the top sheet wasn't lengthened - it's way too short. Too bad because otherwise, it's very nice.

Holding up great, but...
I bought these sheets several years ago and they are holding up great. The bottom fitted sheet does fit a deep mattress, but the top sheet is not wide enough to tuck in on both sides. Also, the pillow cases are barely long enough to cover standard pillows. Since these are not cheap sheets, I expected then to be generously sized. I like them very much except for them being so skimpy on the top sheet and pillow cases. I would order them again and recommend them except for that.

GREAT SHEETS, butâ¦
These are great sheets, memories of the âold daysâ and they are now our favorite sheets. HOWEVER, the top sheet is terribly skimpy and I had to sew several inches of material (part of an old, worn sheet) onto one side to make it wider and therefore more comfortable and plentiful. I do have to say that the bottom fitted sheet has ample corner room for thick mattressesâ¦no complaints. I would have given these sheets even 6 stars, except for my needing to add to the sheet size. I will buy these again, but knowing Iâll have to do a bit of sewing. Also, I must say that Iâve been in search of this kind of sheet set for several years (the feel of the material) and am glad I found them.

Soft Percale and Generous Sizing
I find these sheets to be soft and thus comfortable. I learned the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets. In this case, the thread count is about average and just as soft as I need them to be. The price is reasonable too.
I especially appreciated the generous sizing of the queen fitted sheet and the king fitted sheet (I have both). I don't have to struggle to make the bed like is the case with some of my more expensive sheets that fit too snug.

The best sheets I have ever bought !
I bought 2 sets of these sheets last August and I have used then continually. They still look brand new and stay crisp after many washings. Well worth the investment

Finally!!! A percale sheet that is crisp, cool and comfortable! The print is fabulous, colors bright,
and the sheets feel and smell wonderful just like the
ones Grandma used to have on her bed. I have
hunted sheets like these for years. Good Job

Love Beautiful Cool Sheets
I have been seaching everywhere for the I guess "old fashioned" cotton percale sheets. I found them here and bought the Full size! They washed up beautifully and then I hung them out on the clothesline on a warm Spring day in early April. The fitted sheet fits my 12" mattress perfectly. If my mattress were any thicker, I don't think it would have fit as nicely. I wish the top sheet were a little wider but it is not a deal breaker. The pillow cases were a perfect fit. These sheets are so pretty and feel a lot more substancial than the micro fiber ones I have but do not enjoy. The solid colors get boring after awhile. It is a pleasure to have print sheets again. This is a happy find for me and I hope to enjoy these sheets for years to come.

Quality, Comfort and Beauty
I bought these hoping the reasons that others loved them would be true.
Quality 100% cool and crisp cotton. The weight of the material is great. They are soft and keep you comfortable all night. The fitted sheet with full elastic fits my 13" mattress perfectly.
I am so pleased with these sheets that I have ordered them in the cream.
