My daughter requested these particular sheets as a gift. We purchased one set in teak and one set in natural for her queen sized bed. We also purchased extra pillowcases for each set (which only come in standard size). The "natural" sheet set color is nearly white; the extra pillowcase set in "natural" is beige in color. These products are made in China. I cannot attest to their comfort, but I am disappointed in their appearance, and I can only hope the quality is deserving of the price. (The cotton bag containing the teak pillowcases is sliced...ugh). I am quite sure I could have found a higher thread count percale organic sheet for less money in a brick and mortar store. On the plus side, delivery was quite fast. Still, I am embarrassed to give this nearly $500 purchase as a gift.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Judy04 Crunchy sheets
I initially liked these sheets, the dark purplish color I got is really nice. After the first washing they became very wrinkled and are almost scratchy and are kind of loud if you need to turn in bed. I don't mind too much, just a different experience to get used to. I would prefer not to have to deal with this, however. I recently also purchased the jersey knit sheets and these are a superb product, very soft and comfortable. I will exchange these for more of the jersey

Rated 5 out of 5 by garlicbabe I love, love, love these sheets!
YES! YES!! YES!!! Just what I was looking for! Old-fashioned, crisp, cool percale sheets. These are so hard to find. I got the blue and it is beautiful. These are perfect for a hot Texas summer. They breath and they don't cling to you. I line dry them and it is just like being a little girl again at Grandmother's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by weschicky crunchy, with small pillowcases
I have owned these sheets for a few months now and they're still almost as noisy and crunchy-sounding as when I got them. I usually line dry everything, but I've tried putting them in the dryer a couple times, which hasn't helped. They're not very drapey, so they don't fall of their own accord into the space between my sleeping partner and me, so it's easy for there to be a column of cold air between us. Also, the pillowcases are a bit too small for my pillows, which stick out the last inch or so. My pillows swim in other standard pillowcases, so I don't think it's the pillows.
The fabric seems high quality, the detailing and stitching is good, and elastic the entire way around the fitted sheet is a nice touch. A good sheet set for the price, if you can get over the volume level and have small pillows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by purplesea13 Just like grandmas sheet!
I have been looking all over for these sheets! they are crisp and cool, get softer with age and last and last. You do have to wash them a few times before you use them so they are not as "crispy" as first. After the first few weeks they are quite nice and get softer and softer with each wash. They are also organic so they don't have the "chemical" smell when you open them. Percale sheets are very tightly woven sheets and originated from around 1850's.
