Feels very nice and helps enjoy sleep much better. Well worth it, for those who have hard time sleeping, this on top of memory foam Topper is excellent. Deep sleep and able to get rest and feel good when waking.
I bought these after a month of contemplating them. I'm so glad I did! They are soft, breathable, and sooooo silky. I purchased a different brand of pillowcases and they were terrible compared to the RachelSilk sheets. I won't buy a different brand again. I highly recommend themftr: paired with the silk duvet, it CAN get too hot
Great quality, silk is extremely softMissing a Star because the sheets and pillowcase are completely see through. The color I purchased was white but I did not expect it to be transparent.I'm also worried the sheets will turn yellow but as of 2 hand washes it still looks good.
These sheets are silky-smooth, light, breathable material and provide me with the most luxurious night’s sleep every night. I exclusively get my set dry cleaned and the silk has retained its original quality. These sheets are an investment for sure between both the price and the upkeep of dry cleaning, yet it’s worth every penny. A good night’s sleep is priceless!
They wrinkle easy and the flat sheet is only soft / shiny on one side.
My only question is, is the flat sheet supposed to be sleek / shiny on both sides or just one? Ideally the shiny side is facing your skin because it is MUCH softer and feels so comfortable that you finally understand what a true "luxury" item is. If you've ever experienced a faux silk or satin pillow cases you should try to forget that experience asap. This is nothing like those hot, sticky, unbreathable and unpleasant bedding options.They have a similar appearance and touch at first but that's where the likeness ends.Having never experienced this before you kind of start to understand what all the fuss is about.I bought them for my bed at work. I'm a firefighter and falling asleep quickly and comfortably can mean the difference between being at least slightly rested for those constant late night / (very) early morning calls and being so exhausted that you're a danger to yourself, your patients, and your coworkers.You definitely want to have your head screwed on tight when you're looking for a hydrant to supply the guys that are already in a burning building.Anyway, they're super soft, luscious, comfortable, etc. but I'm still getting to know them.If anyone could point me to where I can find out if these things are the genuine (100% silk) article I'd love to hear about it.
Absolutely luscious. One side IS smoother than the other, turn that side toward the skin. The side that is not as smooth will grab and keep your blanket or comforter on the bed. Love that this was available in black.
My wife objected to the price at first, but I insisted that if we want the *true* silk experience, we had to do it right. She has conceded that I was right. We both giggle with excitement now at bedtime, when we slide into these slippery caterpillar-poop (our words) cocoons.
These are 19 momme, the standard thread count for silk, not super thin nor thick- good quality. These are real silk- I'm very picky and know the difference. They are charmeuse so they don't have that super slippery sheen so your blankets slip off your bed. I used these all last summer and LOVE them, even in the winter. I love the two pillowcases. I have washed them about 10 times using regular detergent on normal cycle and put them in the dryer. I did not wash them with any kind of special care and they are holding up wonderfully. The only negative thing I'd say is I noticed they don't have a top seam on the flat sheet ( just have a regular seam all the way around) so I can't really tell which is the top or bottom. Great for the price.
It took nearly 3 weeks to get my sheets. I would wait even longer for these silk sheets! Pricey indeed but so nice to crawl into at night. Ive never felt any bedding close to it. I would highly recommend this product. I'll buy more
I purchased a second set of sheets after buying a pair because of how soft they were. They are hands down some of the softest sheets I've personally ever slept on and am thrilled with them. Once you sleep in between silk sheets you really don't want to sleep on anything else. It's one of those things you truly need to try to understand, it's like laying on a cloud.
I have always wanted silk sheet and I finally splurged on a set. I went with RachelSilk because of the great reviews they have and I wasn’t disappointed! Sheets are well made and incredibly luxurious. Had a really hard time getting out of bed this morning. They did take three weeks to reach me, but was well wort the wait. I highly recommend! I will most likely be ordering these in another color.
I've had these several weeks and wanted to wait to review until I had more experience with them. They were a big splurge for me and with going through menopause I was willing to try anything to feel cooler and have better sleep. I previously bought silk pillowcases from another company and enjoyed using them for better skin and hair care and loved the results.For this Silk Sheet Set:Service was exceptional- received it sooner than expected, questions answered promptly by company, etc.Quality is very good- sewn well, no hanging threads or defects whatsoever, luxurious feeling! I love the Taupe color, it is gorgeous and seems true to the pictures on computer. The sizing is generous on both the pillows and sheets.The feel is very soft, cool, silky, albeit slippery. I really love the feel, so comfortable that I am excited to go to bed and don't want to get out in the morning. I washed 3 times now in machine on "handwash" setting with Woolite. Hung on line to dry and they dry very fast then back on the bed- don't even want to rotate them with my cotton sheets because I love these! A little wrinkly but they smooth out on bed. I don't iron sheets and especially silk sheets due to fear of easily burning silk- my expensive investment. Overall, I highly recommend starting silk linen with pillowcases or a bottom fitted sheet. Those are my favorite to use.
I love that they are very very silky soft the only problem we have is keeping the sheets on the bed because they’re that silky soft. I recently bought some clips so I hope it will help them on the bed.
