Love the blue haze color, blended well with an indigo quilt! These are the heaviest sheets I've found in a while, so they should last a while. They were very wrinkly after the first wash, but relaxed some after more washes. I don't expect my sheets to be perfectly smooth, if you do these may not be for you.
I immediately washed my new sateen Legends sheets when they arrived. They felt surprisingly soft after only one washing. (usually new sheets require multiple washings to get rid of that scratchy feel). Then I put the fitted sheet on our thin mattress, starting at the head of the bed. By the time I got to the fourth corner at the foot, I had a 4" wad of extra fabric. Even if I washed the bottom sheet in hot water and dried in a super hot dryer, (which is NOT recommended), this fabric would not shrink that much. I called customer service twice and both agents recommended those ridiculous sheet gripper garters. I threw mine away after I had this problem in the past. I decided to custom tailor the sheet to fit my bed. It was unbelievably easy! I turned it to the wrong side and machine sewed a 1 1/4" seam along the existing four seams. (meaning 2.5" per seam). Make sure you take an equal amount from each corner. Voila! It fit perfectly. Our mattress if not quite 10" (expensive Vi Spring from England) and this sheet was designed to fit an 18" mattress. So don't give up and send the sheets back if the bottom doesn't fit. All it takes is about 10 minutes and a sewing machine. We tired it out last night. Such a luxury to have wake up with an ultra tight bottom sheet. (of course it would be ideal if Company Store offered the same sheets to a thinner mattress profile--hint hint please consider this!)
I highly recommend Legends bedding - its worth it to invest in quality products that are also beautiful. The duvet is so smooth and supple, I don't use a top sheet anymore. The color palettes are gorgeous; I am thrilled with the sea green duvet. I bought a down comforter and the duvet as a gift - and need to treat myself to the same luxury!
I was happy to be able to replace my favorite duvet cover that I'd had for years. We finally managed to ruin it with a stain. I was crushed, but able to find a duplicate. Thank you for your quality and consistency Co Store.
I ordered a Queen in Storm Grey, a flat, fitted and king pillow cases. They were all super soft right out of the wash. No need to wash several times to soften like other sheets I have bought. Fits our 14 inch mattress fine, and covers the full box spring all the way around. I like the elastic going around the full opening too. I wish they sold Queen cases but the industry standard is not to anymore. I got the king so I have enough flap to fold under as I keep the pillows visible when the bed is made. The only thing I wish is that the cases and flat sheet had a little fancier seaming. It is just a flat seam with no double stitching. But GREAT quality, soft, comfy, feels great!
