Today was my twice-yearly bed renovation day. I took off the winter duvet cover and dust ruffle and put on the warm weather versions. I also removed the flannel sheets from the bed and washed the mattress cover. When it was time to re-make the bed I remembered I'd received a new set of sheets as one of my birthday presents back in January.
The beautiful new sky blue sheets came packaged in a sturdy plastic bag that had a zipper and a tassel. When I took them out I was impressed at how soft and silky they were. When I looked at the label I was surprised to find out that they weren't cotton, but brushed microfiber!
I've always used cotton sheets (percale in the summer and flannel in the winter), so the idea of microfiber was a little strange. However, I try to be open to new ideas, so I washed the sheets and made up the bed. The sheets came out completely wrinkle free. I liked that the fitted sheet had a nice deep pocket, and elastic elastic that went completely around. The flat sheet was long enough to tuck in securely at the foot of the bed.
I'll have to see how the new sheets wear. If they're good, I may not go back to cotton.
