The sheet set is made by Mellanni Fine Linens, a bedding company that also sells 1500 Brushed Microfiber sheets, 1800 Brushed Microfiber Duvet sets and Hypoallergenic mattress protectors.
The company says they pride themselves on having the best customer service in the industry – they offer a 100% money-back lifetime warranty.

- Soft fabric
- Light material – dries easily
- Affordable prices (based on color)
- Easy care
- Prompt customer service
- Thin material – feels less luxurious/lower quality

- Cheaper looking top sheet hem compared to nice pillow hems
- Not true to color in natural light
I reviewed the 1800 Brushed Microfiber sheet set in a bubblegum pink color. I can attest that the sheets are indeed soft but some of the other bigger claims – like that the sheets are wrinkle-resistant, fade-resistant, and stain-resistant, as well as hypoallergenic (and dust mite resistant)- that Mellanni Fine Linens makes about their products did not all live up to my expectations.
I followed the care instructions to the letter and I washed the sheets in a delicate cold cycle and a low tumble dry. Compared to other sheet care, this is very easy. I also removed the sheets promptly and draped them on the bed quickly, per instructions. The sheets did not fade in their vibrant color but – as one can see from the photos – they did not remain wrinkle-free.
The instructions indicate that it’s not advisable to iron (or dry clean) the sheets.
The two pillowcases that come in the set have a special hem (on one half of the pillow) with satin-like piping that adds a level of enhanced luxury. However, the top flat sheet does not have a matching hem, but rather a simple hem that makes the sheets look cheaper.
The microfiber sheets are truly very soft and have a unique feel that I haven’t experienced in a sheet set before. The actual fabric material is very thin – a note echoed in other reviews I read. Thin sheets are not always associated with high quality, but this characteristic does give them a lightweight feel and they were easy to dry as advertised.
The care tag is located at the top of the flat sheet so that when I pulled the sheet up to my face to sleep, the tag irritated me. I wish they had considered placing the tag at the bottom of the top sheet or somewhere else entirely.
I had no fading or stain issues with the sheets, however, other reviewers found their sheets stained when extra oils (like from lotion) were absorbed into the sheets.
The sheets are also supposed to be hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites. While I can’t personally test for dust mites, I had no skin issues or irritation while testing the sheets.
I did like how soft the sheets were – they were not as light as many of the bamboo sheets I have reviewed, but they did not feel any heavier than cotton sheets.
I did wake up overheated once during the three nights I tested the sheets and overall I didn’t feel like the sheets breathed very well and are not a recommendation I would make to hot sleepers.
I really like that the sheet set comes in so many colors – they even offer Hot Pink sheets and patterned sheets as well. This plus their affordability could make them a good option for those looking to match a specific comforter or duvet cover.
Things to Consider Before Buying
Based on my experience, the sheets are not wrinkle resistant as promised; they’re fairly wrinkly but because it is not advised that one irons them, I’m at a loss to figure out how one actually gets wrinkles entirely out of these sheets.
The thin material of the sheets does not provide a luxurious feel and many reviewers commented on the cheaper quality of the set while others liked how lightweight it made the sheets.
The sheets were not true to their described color in natural light – for example, the image below is the sheet set I ordered and looks more like a salmon or a peach than a bubble gum pink I received. They truly look like an entirely different set of sheets and those who have a very particular shade in mind need to be cautious when ordering.
As I noted earlier in the review, the sheets did not breathe well for me, I woke up hot during my review.
Finally, Mellanni Fine Linens says that their 1800 Brushed Microfiber Sheet Set is the “#1 Bed Sheet Set on Amazon.” They also direct customers to purchase sheets off Amazon.com. But nowhere on the actual Amazon page does it say that these sheets are best sellers.
The affordable price of these sheets is one of the biggest draws to ordering a set. A Queen sheet set in Pink is currently sold on Amazon for $29.70 and the White color is only $17.00 for a queen set; the sheets also come in sizes from Twin to California King.
Based on my experience, I think these sheets could be a great back-up set of sheets because I am not convinced that their quality would allow them to hold up long if used every day.
In the same vein, these would be an adequate set of sheets for a guest bedroom or for a bedroom with a very specific color scheme.
Overall, I would recommend these brushed microfiber sheets to people who are looking for an inexpensive set of soft sheets, want to try a less-traditional color option, and who want to try something that isn’t cotton or another material like bamboo.
The customer service team at Mellanni Fine Linen was quick to address many of the negative reviews and comments on Amazon. They were very open to offering refunds or exchanges.
Mellanni Fine Linens offers a Lifetime Guarantee on their sheets and offer a full refund if customers are unhappy with their sheets.
