[1] QUESTION: IS THERE ANY PILLING?
• Not so far. Love these sheets better than high dollar ones.
• I have washed them at least 5 times and so far, no pilling. They have gotten softer with every wash. I do wash in cold and dry lowest heat setting to minimize shrinkage. So far, I love them.
• No 🙂 love these sheets!
• Not yet..used for appx 2 months so far.
• None at all!
• None so far.
• Both my sets of sheets have gone through about 6 washes thus far and no pilling. Hope that helps.
• I have washed them at least 5 times and so far, no pilling. They have gotten softer with every wash. I do wash in cold and dry lowest heat setting to minimize shrinkage. So far, I love them.
• No….but they are pretty thin
• I’ve washed the sheets 4 or 5 times – no pilling at all!

[2] QUESTION: WILL THE QUEEN SIZE FIT A QUEEN PILLOW TOP MATTRESS?
• Yes, but I would never order those again, infact I gave them to Good Will.
• I have the King and it fits my King pillow top just fine, so you should be good!

[3] QUESTION: DOES THE ELASTIC ON THE FITTED SGEET GO ALL THE WAY AROUND, OR JUST ON THE CORNERS?
• The elastic goes completely around the fitted sheet. These are by far my favorite sheets.
• It’s elastic all four sides.They fit my 12″ mattress just fine.
• It goes all the way around. Nice soft sheets.
• It goes all the way around
• Just on the corners

[4] QUESTION: WHAT SIZE ARE THE PILLOW CASES? STANDARD OR KING?
• I ordered queen size sheets. Pillow cases are standard.
• I got the queen set, so they’re standard. If you get the king set, it would be unusual if they weren’t King.
• Hello-these are standard cases
• Standard
• I received king size pillow cases with the king size sheets.
• The California King sheet set came with King size pillow cases.

[5] QUESTION: IS THE MATERIAL 170 GSM?
• I’ve only seen this “170 gsm” in reference to flannel sheets. These are not flannel.
• I don’t know. I returned it. I found a set locally in a colors that I liked better.

[6] QUESTION: WE HAVE A DOG THAT GETS ON OUR BED AND HER NAILS RIP ALL THE SHEETS I'VE TRIED. WILL THESE BE DURABLE ENOUGH TO NOT RIP?
• That remains to be seen. We’ve had our own set of these sheets (in white) for more than one year (7/22/15) and still no rips. I regularly wash them in extra hot water and bleach so I’m not treating them gently. In the past, other 100% bottom sheets have ripped in the foot area, due to rough feet or nails, we think. These Pinzon sheets are still very smooth.
• In my opinion these sheets would probably work out. They are of high quality and very durable. Though I’m not a dog owner, so have no direct experience in that regard.

[7] QUESTION: WHAT IS THE WEAVE ON THESE SHEETS?
• Not sure exactly how to answer your question, Joyce. I can say that, after the first washing, it didn’t have the strange texture that it came with and it had shrunk considerably. My husband and I struggled to get the bottom sheet on the mattress, made the rest of the bed, and, within about 3 days, the sheets had become saggy and unshapely. I have bought a lot of sheets in my life, but none like these!
• It appears to be a twill weave forming a diagonal pattern of tiny ridges on the surface of the material.
• They have a lovely dull-satin finish. Tight weave of 500 thread count. I really like them!

[8] QUESTION: ARE THE WHITE SHEETS SEE THROUGH?
• I am unable to give you a definitive answer as mine were light slate blue. However, I can see no way any of the colors can be “see through”. Too heavy for that.
• NO a great Thread count very thick and long lasting
• No, they are not see-through. These are great sheets!

[9] QUESTION: DOES THE FITTED SHEET REALLY FIT A CALIFORNIA KING?
• Yes
• Hello i bought a Queen size fits snug and soft the sheets have held up under weekly wash and wear and i bought a second set

[10] QUESTION: HOW WELL DO THESE BREATHE? ARE THEY TOO HOT?
• 100 percent cotton is 100% cotton so be careful in washing and drying..or they shrink.
• They breathe very well. They are light soft sheets

[11] QUESTION: HOW DOES SUPER SOFT PIMA COMPARE TO PERCALE COTTON SHEETS?
• Pima cotton isn’t as crinkly. I returned percale to get pima because the percale felt like sleeping on paper.
• Pima is the type of cotton, and percale is the weave of the fabric. From http://www.allaboutsupima.com/the_cotton/: “Pima” is a generic term for extra-long staple cotton grown in the US, Australia, Peru and a few other countries. It was once called American-Egyptian cotton, but was renamed to honor the Pima Indians who were growing cotton in Sacaton Arizona.
• I believe percale is more crisp (my word, stiff) than pima. These sheets are very soft. . Yes they wrinkle but I will take soft over wrinkles any day. I love them and will be ordering another set soon.
• I find it more comfortable. I believe the weave also has a lot to do with comfort because some will pill less than others.
• They are not comparable. Pima cotton is good quality US cotton ( Egyptian cotton grown in us). Percale is the weave of the thread. Weaves are percale or sateen. You can find Pima cotton in both types.

[12] QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE FLAT SHEET? I HAVE A DEEP MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS.
• I’m not sure of the exact sheet measurements, but I also have a very deep tempurpedic mattress with a 4″topper on top of that and the sheets fit it fine. These are wonderful sheets! I am super pleased with them and bought two more sets for my Mom! She loves them too!
• The flat sheet is approximately 99″ long and 103″ wide. The sheet was on our bed when I measured so it’s not exact. The tag on the sheet doesn’t give the dimensions. Our mattress is 10½” deep. The sheets are so smooth against your skin. We really like them. We got white sheets so they can be bleached. 100% pima cotton.
• I have a memory foam mattress, a pillow top cover, and a pillow top mattress and it fits.

[13] QUESTION: WHAT IF I NEED TO DO EXCHANGE THE SHEETS?
• Just contact Amazon and they will help you through the process.
• Just contact Amazon and they will help you through the process.

[14] QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS TOO BIG/LOOSE FOR A 11 OR 12 INCH FULL-SIZED MATTRESS?
• No, they fit fine. About a 1/4 inch wrap under the mattress sides and hold tight. Soft Cotton, Really comfortable, but we would need to iron them in order to produce a military bounce-the-penny snap fit appearance.
• My bed,is queen so fit was ok but sheets are messy and are not smooth no matter wha I do

[15] QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS PERCALE
• I don’t know a lot about weave, but I would bet that they are percale. Very lightweight, not like sateen. Not positive, though.
• Sorry, I really don’t know and don’t have any more information than was given by the seller. Maybe the manufacturer’s website has that information.

[16] QUESTION: WHERE ARE THESE SHEETS MADE?
• China like most everything these days.
• They are made in China. Other fine sheets that I own from HOTEL and Bella Lux are made there as well. These Pinzon sheets are fine quality and are holding up well.

[17] QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE SHEETS
• My queen size fit a standard matress that is 13 inches deep.
• I have California King size and they fit as expected. I didn’t measure the sheets.
• The set I purchased was for a full sized mattress and they fit beautifully!

[18] QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS CONSIDERED SATEEN?
• Does anyone know if they are a Sateen Weave or Percale?
• These are not sateen sheets. I own numerous sets of sateen & these are not sateen.
• I have never had satin sheets so Im not sure, but these sheets are the softest and most comfortable sheets I’ve ever owned.
• I’m not sure what others would consider them. They do have a “sheen” too them. They are very soft but I wouldn’t consider them “satiny”.

[19] QUESTION: DO THESE SHEETS HAVE A SOFT, COOL FEEL TO THEM?
• Yes! But they are always creased ! More than others.
• Oh ya!!
• They are cool and crispy feel to them, not like tshirt material.
• Yes.. they are great.
• Yes. Soft cotton feel to them.
• No. They are rough. I would not purchase again . I threw mine out

[20] QUESTION: I'M LOOKING FOR SHEETS FOR A NEW MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS MY HUSBAND JUST PURCHASED. THE BED IS 15.5" THICK CAL KING, WILL THESE SHEETS FIT?
• I bought the Queen sheets to fit a tempurpedic pillow top… After the first wash I was surprised there was no shrinkage- HOWEVER, Now that the sheets have been washed a few more times they don’t fit so well anymore. They are good for the price, but probably won’t be great in a year
• I don’t know. I bought queen size

[21] QUESTION: DO THESE SHEETS PILL EASILY?
• They have pilled a little…
• I’ve used & washed mine a ton with no pilling. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again.
• No, these sheets are really quite nice for the price. They get softer with each wash. No pills after 6+ months of use. Excellent value.
• I haven’t noticed any pills.

[22] QUESTION: CAN THEY BE USED FOR A REALLY BIG ROUND BED?
• Doubt it. But take the measurements of sheets, they must be in description & check against your bed measurements. Why would you buy a round bed? Hugh Hefner isn’t dead yet, but bet he got rid of the round bed 30 years ago.
• These sheets are designed for a regular rectangular bed. They would not fit a round bed properly. Thanks!

[23] QUESTION: DO THESE SHEETS PILL?
• I have had these a few months now. I use them, pull them off and wash them, then put them back on the bed, so they have had full time use and have not had any indication whatsoever of pilling.
• No they do not. I have washed them several times, no pilling exhibited.
• Ive had these sheets for a few months now. They haven’t pilled at all so far, even after a fair number of laundry cycles. I’m planning on buying more… they’re quite nice, comfortable, and a good value.
• No pilling after several washes
• I have only washed them a few times (on a guest bed) but I haven’t had a problem with them pilling.

[24] QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS CRISP? HEAVY?
• Not at all. Light weight and smooth.
• They were at first however we use softener which makes them soft
• Yes, they are crisp, but not heavy.
• They are substantial & would be crisp if removed & folded directly from dryer.
• They were at first however we use softener which makes them soft
• Yes, I think so. They feel really nice, like poplin.
• Yes

[25] QUESTION: IF I BUY THE KING SET. DO I GET THE PILLOWS IN KING SIZE OR STANDARD PILLOW?
• King
• King. I had to buy standard seperate. There great sheets too.
• You get 2 King sized pillows.

[26] QUESTION: DO THEY WRINKLE AFTER WASHING?
• Minimally if you shake them out before putting in the dryer and remove them promptly when dry
• Only slightly. Nothing you can’t live with.
• Not really; I always fold them shortly after drying, but I’ve never noticed then looking wrinkly. The fitted sheet tends to trap other laundry items while in the dryer, which can make it not dry evenly – if you check periodically to ensure that doesn’t happen, the sheets should come out fine.
• Yes, they do wrinkle after washing but not any more than any other cotton sheet set I own. If I take them directly from the dryer the wrinkles are minimized and I can spread it out with my hand…I also mist them and they flatten easily and look great.
• Yes they do mine did.

[27] QUESTION: IS THE FLINT BLUE AS DEEP A COLOR AS SEEN ON WEBSITE?
• It’s sort of a powder/grayish blue. It’s fairly light-colored. Not dark at all.
• In my opinion, yes.

[28] QUESTION: WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE FLAT SHEET?
• I got these for my roommate, its oversized i guess b/c it easily tucks under her pillowtop matteress with a quilted matteress pad. She LOVES them. OMG she LOVES THEM.
• I use these sheets for my bed and breakfast. I like them because they are light and wash well. The flat sheet just barely tucks in on my queen beds which are a little less than 15″ deep.

[29] QUESTION: DO THESE SHEETS HAVE A HOTEL CRISP SHEET FEEL? DO THEY KEEP THE CRISP FEEL AFTER WASHING? THANK YOU
• This is, of course, just my opinion, but we did not feel that the sheets were ever CRISP. They were not crisp when we first used them and, after 4 washings, they are certainly not crisp. I would probably not buy them again. They had a kind of slick feel (I know I’m not explaining this adequately) when we first used them. It was a bit unpleasant, to be honest. The slick feel is gone and has been replaced with just what I would describe as a “worn” feel. They also do not fit very well.
• I love these sheets. I wouldn’t call them crisp. I would call them smooth. They get softer and smoother after about 3-4 washings. I think of crisp as in the old sheets dryed out on the line.
• No they are super soft

[30] QUESTION: DO THESE INCLUDE PILLOW CASES?
• Yes
• Yes.
• Think so , but regular ones
• Yes – 2 standard or 2 king depending on the size you order. Great sheets by the way!

[31] QUESTION: ARE THESE SHEETS SINGLE (1) PLY?
• Yes they are. I love my sheets.
• Yea they are. I LOVE mine.

[32] QUESTION: ARE THE PILLOW CASES KING SIZE?
• Yes if you purchase the king sized set, then the pillowcases are also king sized. We have extra pillows on our bed so I additionally purchased extra king size pillow cases. I personally LOVE these sheets. They so far 1 year in, are outlasting many other sets I have purchased. I think they are soft and comfortable. I recently purchased another set for a spare. I only wish they had more color options, I like bright colors.
• I got the Queen size set
• Yes

[33] QUESTION: ARE THE PILLOWCASES SUPPLIED WITH THE KING SIZE SET, KING SIZE AS WELL? THANKS!
• Sorry, I got a full size set (don’t know ’bout king size)
• Yes the cases are.And these are the best quality sheets I have ever had and won’t ever bother trying for higher thread count or lower price.
• I got a queen set and the pillowcases are big – bigger than standard for sure. I don’t know measurements

[34] QUESTION: I HAVE SOME OLD PINZON SHEETS THAT ARE TRULY WRINKLE-FREE. THEY LOOK JUST LIKE THE PHOTO OF THESE. WOULD YOU CONSIDER THESE SHEETS WRINKLE-FREE?
• You have a WONDERFUL Question I wash mine in ALL free n Clear a touch of baking soda and dry on air fluff. The sheets are perfectly fitting and I smooth them out.
• Dry on low setting

[35] QUESTION: WHAT TYPE OF WEAVE ARE THESE?
• Not sure, but they are great sheets. Will be getting more.
• After reading the other posts let me say this. Do they wrinkle? Yes. I still.love them. Just wash them a few times. Better than loaded with chemicals to . make them wrinkle free. Slap them on the bed and wrinkles diminish. Still feels heavenly to.lie down on.
• Idk but they are hands down the best sheets I have ever purchased…
• Sorry, I did not keep the sheets. They wrinkled badly after laundry. I do not know the weave.
• Maya I am not sure what you mean by weave. They are very soft and comfortable. Smooth and feel like a high thread count. I don’t use commercial fabric softener. They are really smooth. I love them.

[36] QUESTION: DOES THE KING SET COME WITH STANDARD OR KING PILLOW CASES? THANKS
• The king set comes with king pillow cases
• It comes with 2 king size pillow cases.
• The queen size came with king size pillow cases, so I would feel comfortable saying “yes, you will get king size pillow cases.” I hope this is helpful.
• King size
• It came with two king pillow cases!

[37] QUESTION: DOES THE COLOR FADE WITH WASHING?
• No. I have 2 sets, one beige one blue. They are both over 8 months old, washed monthly. The blue still looks brand new. Beige is ..well beige
• We have had ours for almost a year with many washes and no fading
• I got white sheets so I don’t know.
• No and these are the best, I have bought more.

[38] QUESTION: WHAT SHADE OF BLUE IS FLINT BLUE?
• Hi Jill, to me it is more cornflower blue. They are not grey but maybe a hint of grey to them. I bought this with the least expectations just to have spares. They are surprisingly nice.
• A very blue, slate gray
• I bought the orange and the white ones. The orange is NOT a fluorescent color. It is a rich orange. I hope this helps
• I bought the orange and the white ones. The orange is NOT a fluorescent color. It is a rich orange. I hope this helps

[39] QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE WASHING AND DRYING INSTRUCTIONS?
• Agree with other commenters, wash and dry at medium setting. These are probably the best sheets I have ever owned!
• Machine wash and dry at your normal settings. I dry on high heat with no problems.
• I wash and dry at normal warm settings and have no problem.
• I wash them in cold or hot water and I dry them on high heat. These sheets have maintained their shape and will not shrink. I wish they would shrink as they are a little large.
• I simply through mine in the washer with detergent and bleach, put it on a hot cycle, and wash. I dry them on a normal setting and have had no problems. They come out smelling nice and fresh. Reminds me…I should get another set.

[40] QUESTION: ARE THESE PERCALE WEAVE, OR SATEEN WEAVE? PIMA AND EGYPTIAN ARE VARIETIES OF LONG STAPLE COTTON, NOT WEAVES.
• These sheets are percale. They are soft to the touch, but no where near as ‘silky’ as sateen, which is what my sheet set before these were.
• These Pinzon sheets are the best. We love how soft and yet strong they are.

[41] QUESTION: WHAT SIZE ARE THE PILLOWCASES?
• King Size Set Pillows measure in the flat 18-1/2″ x 37-1/2″ after (2) hot water wash and dry cycles
• I ordered the queen size set and the pillow case are for standard pillows. My standard pillows are pretty large and they fit perfectly.
• King size set, king size pillow cases. The rest are standard I think.
• You are welcome M. Holladay!
• L 31 1/2″ W 20 1/2″ for a queen size set. These were the measurements after several washing. I didn’t notice any shrinkage so they should be fairly accurate.
