Comment:
I do love the feel of these sheets. I've never thought about sheets much, but when a family member gave me these as a house warming gift, I was shocked at how much nicer they were than other sheets I had used. That said, a large rip just occurred in the fitted sheet after only 2 years. I'm not sure the normal lifespan of sheets, but 2 years seems pretty short for sheets this expensive. Although, I like them enough to buy another set. It's also one of the first fitted sheets I've used that doesn't come off at the corners when I roll around at night. Mine didn't pill at all though like the other reviewers.

Comment:
I followed the washing instructions exactly, but they still pilled after only a couple of washes. They also were not as soft as I expected them to be for that high of a thread count. I have been very unhappy with these sheets. I expected much better quality after the amount I spent on these.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
After a year of using these sheets almost non-stop, and them getting washed every 2 weeks in a HE washer,dryer, they have fallen apart. This is just simply unacceptable for the $$$ I spent on these. I have sheets my mother gave me that are well over 5 years old that are still going strong. I would say try your luck elsewhere. They just are NOT worth the money.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
