I've been looking for the kind of percale sheets my grandmother used. Crisp, delightful and a joy to sleep in year after year. When I read the reviews online for these sheets I noticed several comments about them feeling scratchy at first, so I purchased them with a bit of trepidation. However when they arrived, beautifully packaged I might add, I found them to be exactly what I was looking for. They are the best. Their crispness is not scratchy at all, they have an amazing feel night after night. They feel special. I'll be spreading the word and saving up to buy another set. Thank you for the great quality.
