We received these on June 17th, I washed and dried them on high heat before we placed them on our bed. These are a nice light weight, very soft and cool sheet set. I had no trouble getting the fitted sheet to fit our really thick mattress. These are NOT 1800 tc cotton sheets but they are 1800 tc microfiber sheets which makes them a little more slippery feeling but not that annoying way that satin sheets do. I got mine in a beautiful pearl gray color and hubs and I really love them. This set comes with 1 top sheet, 2 king size pillow cases and a fitted sheet. They came packaged appropriately and had no smell to them at all until I ran them through the washer and dryer so now they smell like Downy lol. I did not notice any difference between when they were brand new and after washing. I did remove them immediately from the dryer and folded them until it was time to change the bed. I am adding pictures to this review so you will see how they look before and after washing. I also took a picture with my hand behind the top sheet to show the thinness of the sheets. I have to say they are very comfortable but are kind of thin and I would probably on use them during warmer weather and go back to my flannel sheets in the late fall and winter.
