I was approached by the people at Perfect Linens inquiring if I would be interested in receiving a complementary set of Second Skin sheets to review- I'm always on the hunt for a good set of sheets so of course I said yes.
First off when I received the package....they won points for how it was packaged...sweet & simple... with a touch of we care.
The set I picked to have delivered was Second Skin Blue double stripe in a queen size.
- 400 thread-count
- sateen woven
- 100% Egyptian Mercerized cotton
- generously over-sized flat sheet
- embroidered hems on flat and Pillowcases
Right out of the box they felt smooth, fresh and soft.
I like to wash new sheets before we sleep in them.... so, following their instructions. I launder them alone in warm water with a mild detergent.
I dried them on low with no fabric softener or dryer sheets. (also per their instructions)
I removed from my dryer and put them on my bed slightly damp...Yes, damp! the fabric continues to dry while I smoothed out wrinkles with my hands....super easy. This is what they looked like after I smoothed them out...this is the bottom sheet.
I did the same thing with the top sheet...it was a little more "wrinkled" but not bad.
(usually to get to this point I would have to iron...so happy day...a lot less ironing)
Pillow cases....I didn't catch them quite at the damp stage...so I think that is why they came out like this...so I will be ironing these.
( I like my pillow cases iron crisp...I'm kind of weird like that)
they came out better than most sheets I have.... Plus I love the trim... very nice detail.
So I touched up the pillow cases with an iron- and they came out perfect.
They were very comfortable to sleep on...didn't cling, felt very smooth and cozy....reminded me of the sheets from a resort that we love.....so happy day bonus!
I plan to buy a few sets to use at our cabin....perfect for the guest beds...plus big bonus...if laundered and put on the beds damp...no ironing to make them looks presentable! Happy Day!
If you would like to try a set yourself....good news....
