    I bought these sheets last summer for my son (for his dorm) and for me. I love them! Very inexpensive.

    But I wonder about the colors. I couldn’t find out how they colored them. Do you know?

      Ooh that is a really good question, Karen, and I’m not sure! I’ll see if I can find out.

    I went looking for these today and they are nowhere to be found online! Does anyone know where they went?

      Oh man….you might try contacting customer service. Hopefully they were just out of stock!

    Hi Becky, I picked up a set of these sheets (brown) at Target too due to the fact that they’re organic and relatively inexpensive. One thing I noticed about them though is the fact that the sheets and the pillowcase are very smooth and shiny, almost silk-like rather than cottony (to me). Granted I’m not really that knowledgeable about fabrics at all, but I thought this did seem a bit odd. Do you think this is anything to worry about as far as the sheets truly being 100% organic cotton and of all natural materials / dyes / what have you, and have any idea why the sheets might be so smooth / silky?

      The shine is probably because they’re using organic cotton sateen. From what I understand, the sateen is produced by treating the cotton fibers with lye that’s neutralized with an acid bath (lye is basic, which is why it’s used in soap-making). Safety-wise, I don’t think it’s as healthy as untreated organic cotton, but it’s probably not something to worry too much about. If anyone has more knowledge/info, though, I’d love to hear from you!

    I know this is an old topic, but I have been looking for organic sheets myself and think I narrowed it down to a set from Target or the Pure Beech sateen ones from Bed Bath & Beyond which are made from modal trees. Are the Target ones soft? 325 doesn’t sound like a very high thread count though I have heard that thread counts are often embellished and misunderstood.
