We spent hundreds of dollars on a bedding set. We rotate them with a cheap $30 set we bought elsewhere to give them time to rest. We wash them according to the instructions and within a year they started to have noticeable issues. By the second year they tore huge holes in several spots. The cheap set we rotate them with have outlasted them! I expected more when I invested in quality. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect sheets to last 26 weeks of use before ripping.
When I sent a picture of a hole in the sheet after less than a handful of washes here was the response I got: We are unfortunately unable to replace these items, as the damage appears to be the result of regular wear and tear, and the order is more than one year old. Our products are Oeko-Tex certified, which means we do not use any harmful chemicals or substances. This makes them safer for you and healthier for the planet, but more delicate over time. Many factors can impact the lifespan of your sheets. Just like people, bedding needs time to rest, which is why we recommend rotating with another set every few weeks. Frequent washing can wear out your bedding prematurely – we suggest washing on a gentle cycle with cool water in order to preserve color and elasticity. When storing your items, make sure they’re placed in a well-ventilated area so they can properly breathe. Yes, I ordered the sheets almost 2 years ago, but waited to use them in the guest bedroom until we had guests who arrived in 2019 and left early 2020. They stayed less than one year. Here was my response: I wouldn’t dream of you replacing them after I used them for under one year even sparingly. We used them in rotation with 4 other sheet sets for a spare guest bedroom and stopped using them in the guest bedroom when our guests left in February (they stayed with us for less than one year). It means your sheet set did not last for even one year in rotation with 4 other sets. I use Honest baby laundry detergent in the cold gentle setting with a machine that is older, so it barely agitates during the wash cycle. I also use dryer balls and not dryer sheets. What I am hoping you can pass on to your superiors is a comment/suggestion from me to start a program for repair. Lots of companies who claim to care about the environment do that. That way you send us a pre-paid envelope/package for the set, we send it to you, you repair it and send it back to us. You could charge us a nominal cost for this. Or put it into the cost of the sheets. Whatever. The issue for me is that I have Wamasutta sheets that have lasted me for 10 years, when we only had 2 sheet sets in rotation as our main sheet set. When we were using the worst detergents. The worst washing and heating settings. Dryer sheets. Love your towels, not your sheet sets, but wishing you all well 💛 Enough said. Leave the sheets. Get the towels, they are awesome.
they are soft sheets but after two washes they pilled.. really disappointed by that.
who want a bedding set with only 1 fitted sheet, 1 Pillow Case and 1 Duvet? I cant be the only person that wants a top sheet and at least 2 if not 4 pillow cases, especially when its a King set!
The fabric is gorgeous and soft, like the perfect well-loved sheets as if they've been owned and washed for years BUT I was looking for a rose pink sheet set. The color on screen and as described looked perfect so I was very disappointed to find that the actual color is more like the color of a bruise, a faded purplish mauve on the one side, and the paler side just looks like a dirty purplish white to me. I really didn't expect that color and am SO disappointed as I was looking forward to getting these so much! Gutted. Back to the search...
They do not fit my standard 26" pillows. Very pleasant about returning but should either lengthen Standard or offer Queen size.
colors ran after two cycles.
