Dear readers, I bought these sheets a few years ago and still love them. A fair-trade, organic bedding company gave me a set of sheets to try out for free around the same time, but these are my faves. The fitted sheet stays put better than the pricier version and they seem to get softer the longer I own them.
Promising review: "I can't believe the hundreds of $$ that I've wasted on high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets when I could've been buying sheets
100X softer! These sheets are fabulous! I love the vibrant color! I accidentally bought the split king for my California split king...the fitted sheets were a lil' snug, but they work. I would buy a lot more if they came in full and California King sizes. These pictures were taken after having the sheets a couple months. There is no piling, no fading, and they still look brand new." —Moni
Get them from Amazon for $22.40+ (available in eight sizes, a variety of colors).
P.S. A higher thread count doesn't mean a set of sheets is worth more of your hard-earned money. You need your sheets to breathe!
