Not what I imagined

Well, I really wanted to love my sheet set since Ive heard positive feedback about them. Unfortunately, I am not really happy with them. They are not soft and the color isn’t really what I imagined either. Too bad .

Ripped after only 3 months

These sheets are crisp and cool, and we love the look and feel of them. We are super disappointed, however, that after only 3 months of use, our fitted sheet is falling apart in the center. There is a 1/2-inch spot at which the threads are coming apart. The spot is not along any of the seams--it's in the middle of the sheet. We have washed and cared for these exactly as instructed (e.g., only gentle, plant-based detergents). We wash the sheets in loads that contain only the sheets (no other clothing items that could cause tears or rips). While the fraying spot is small, it's extremely disappointing given the price of these sheets. We've had less expensive sheets last us for years. Contacting customer service to see what they can do for us.

Not what I expected

Ordered an all white sateen duvet and percale sheet set. Spent over $400. Straight out of the box I saw loose threads and a few very small black/gray stains (!!!!), but I proceeded to give them a chance. I knew immediately I will likely return the percale because they felt thin and rough. The sateen was more smooth and I felt like I might be able to keep that one. After washing, percale was still rough, sateen is acceptable. Also, one of the duvet corners is missing the strings that are necessary to secure the duvet. Quality control seems to be lacking unfortunately. Absolutely not worth the money.

Good at first but will last you 2 years at most even with very infrequent washings.

They recommend washing only once every 7-10 days. If you were to wash them that frequently you'd be buying sheets in less than 6 months. I'm not home much and my sheets need washing at most once a month, most of the times less than that, and they are already crumbling. They are decent sheets at first, but save money and get higher quality sheets from ikea or target.

Pretty disappointed

I don’t know if is too much to expect, but these sheets just fell apart after 2 years of owning them. I was so happy with them before that. I washed according to the instructions exactly (cool water, nellies (natural mild) detergent, low dryer with dryer balls! I am again shopping for new sheets and wouldn’t purchase these again.

Scratchy & Scratchy

I was super excited to receive new sheets, as we just bought a new house. I purchased the gray percale sheets and put them on my guest bed. My sister stayed over and woke up the next morning stating they sheets were SO Scratchy. I washed them twice and they never got softer. I also purchased a queen size and they were also too big, even with a mattress topper. Bummed because I couldn't return.

Nothing to write home about

We've had these sheets for a while now, and they don't feel very different from other cheaper sets we've bought in the past. We don't expect to buy from parachute again, we would likely find something cheaper elsewhere.

Not Impressed

Too coarse for a pillowcase. I guess I should have gone for the sateen. Not a fan of the enclosure. International return would be a waste of time and money.

Was expecting to be blown away

Thought this was one of these companies who has a unique sourcing model that produces sheets for a reasonable price that would ordinarily cost 5X. I paid $200 for a set of sheets and they are OK. They are probably worth $300, but not the high end sheet I expected.

I want to like this bedding more than I do

I love the idea and goals of Parachute and when I got my percale Venice set, I was super excited. The set was great for a few months - comfortable, easy to care for, aesthetically pleasing - but after 3 or 4 washes, the sheet has already started to fade. I've had the navy colored set for 6mo - 1yr and the color is fading pretty fast. I'm still holding out hope for Parachute, maybe will purchase another set in the future, but I'm pretty skeptical. Unfortunately a "not mad, just disappointed" situation.
