Who doesn’t need new sheets? It seems like the one thing we all need, but also something we rarely properly treat ourselves to. You sleep on them every night… you should find some that make you happy! I believe PeachSkinSheets may be those sheets. They are certainly making sleep more restful for my husband and me.
The sheets are lovely before you even take them out of the package. PeachSkinSheets puts a lot of care into beautiful packaging and it makes you feel like you’re opening a gift. We chose the Beach Blue and the color is gorgeous. It is a soft blue reminiscent of rolling ocean waves. The color itself was the start of relaxation. (They also offer many other beautiful colors. You can order free swatches before you purchase.) The 1500 thread count sheets have a soft, brushed finish that is so soft on the skin. They were soft right out of the package, so none of that uncomfortable stiffness and no breaking them in. The fabric did seem a little thin to the touch, but they are not see through and have been strong enough to withstand our cats’ occasional “massaging” of the sheets with claws. The stitching is all close and even. The pockets are deep enough to accommodate larger mattresses (up to 22″-24″.) Overall, really nicely designed and suitable for everyone.

Over the course of my life, I have had many people tell me that I am actually hot to the touch even when my temperature is actually below normal. My husband has joked that he doesn’t need to worry about electric blankets in our cold winters, because he has me. With these sheets, my husband and I have both noted an obvious difference in the levels of heat I generate while I sleep. We actually needed to add a blanket to the bed. That may sound like a negative to some, but if you’re like me and spent a lifetime battling your own body’s weird temperatures (or you are menopausal and dealing with similar) you will understand how nice it is to need a blanket that you can take on and off as you please. Even during recent feverish nights from a flu, I stayed comfortably cool and the sheets stayed dry even though I was sweating from the flu. I really didn’t believe the fabric would do so well with body temperature and moisture management, but I’m happy to report that I was wrong… the sheets really work!
My only real complaint is with the wrinkle-release nature of the fabric. Honestly, the wrinkles don’t really bother me because blankets and pillows cover the bulk of the sheets. I wouldn’t have put much effort in getting them de-wrinkled, but this is a feature they openly promote. I washed and dried the sheets at least five times and tried different wash and heat settings. I have even babysat the dryer to pull the sheets out as soon as they were mostly to fully dry. The sheets come out in a range of horribly to mildly wrinkled… certainly nothing I would call “smooth.”
When I reached out to PeachSkinSheets, they sent me a replacement set of sheets to see if it was an issue with the set I received. It appears it may have been, but I also found the directions on the tags did not work for us. They still came out a bit wrinkled when I dried as directed. You really need to find what works best with the machines that you use. To get smooth sheets in our HE washer and dryer, it worked best to wash on cold in a delicate cycle as suggested and then to dry for about 25 minutes on medium-high heat. The very best look happened when I removed the sheets before the dryer had stopped on its own.
Overall, a really great set of sheets. I love how soft they are. I love that I am sleeping cool and comfortable. I love that they are holding up to the cats without snagging. A few minor wrinkles don’t bother me!
Pros: Soft fabric and beautiful colors. Temperature and moisture management. Durable. Hypoallergenic and anti-microbial. Stain and fade resistant.
Cons: Struggled with the wrinkle release until I found what worked for our machine.
