It’s not often that I get to do a personal review on a product I own. With all of the products we have at FurnitureCrate.com it’s simply not possible to test every item personally; But it just so happened that a suggestion for writing an article about Mayfield sheets came down the pipe no more than a month after I purchased a set for my own bed. So this article will cover my experience of the product without any bias.
Simply put, I think my Mayfield sheet set is great. Now let’s be clear, I am no linens expert or bedding connoisseur. I have never spent a night in a bed with 100% Italian-woven Egyptian Cotton bedding, or a full silk set, I’m just a regular Joe who sleeps with regular sheets. So far be it from me to say anything like “they’re the best on the market” or “you can’t beat them,” but at their two-digit price point I couldn’t be happier.
To start, they look great. I got an Onyx set which is a dark gray (looks almost black to me), and the color is rich and consistent. The dark color gives my mattress a bold color that not only looks nice itself, but really makes the bedding POP. (Especially my Batman blanket…)
Second, the 300 thread count. Again, I’m not a linens expert, but I know that thread counts can go much higher than 300. But just rubbing a corner of one of the sheets between my finger and thumb dispelled my suspicion that they might feel rough and catchy. These sheets won’t be mistaken for silk, but they feel smooth and refreshing against the skin.
Which leads me to my next point: they sleep cool. Cotton is a good breathable material, recommended for summer bedding along with linen and wool. I don’t have air conditioning in my apartment, and these sheets do a great job of not overheating me during the night. They retain that refreshing cool feel whenever I shift positions or roll over.
Lastly, Mayfield sheets are made in the U.S.A. I’m not the type to only buy American, but it’s nice to know that the sheet set I got for a bargain was made in America. It’s also nice to see that an American company is able to offer a product of good quality at a price that is hard to beat even by foreign made competitors.
So if you are looking to replace or buy an additional sheet set (especially for the summer), I can personally vouche that you are getting your money’s worth with Mayfield sheets!
Here’s the Batman blanket, as promised:
