Rated 4 out of 5Â by GeoInCalifornia Watch out for loose threads!
Being a Geologist, it was the name that caught my attention. Then it was the sale price that loured me in.
This is my 2nd set of Anthro sheets. The fabric is higher quality for this set. My 1st set are more like flannel, which has started to fuzz and pill. I prefer this percale set. They wash well, while maintaining their crisp edge, yet feel soft. Like the first reviewer, I noticed the sheets came out of the dryer wrinkled, but once on the bed, the wrinkles flattened out.
The queen top sheet was just long enough to tuck into the sides of the mattress to keep my cats from crawling up and leaving fur between the sheets. The sale price is a definite positive.
My main concern is the edging. The design is created by stitching that runs willy-nilly all over. Sometimes there is a jump of several inches for one stitch. This creates loose threads that are easily caught by fingers and cats claws. I snipped most of the larger stitches that were already hanging away from the sheets. Although I don't wear jewelry to bed, I know many who do. You may want to avoid these sheets if you do.
I ordered the orange and red set.
