I first experienced Comphy sheets while staying at the Lion and the Rose B&B in Portland, OR. I fell in love with them the first night! Of course, when we purchased the Inn, one of my first calls was to Comphy Co. to order our sheets.
Their linens feel like 600 count cotton and feel that way for the life of the product. Their products are made of breathable microfiber twill which is both hypoallergenic, moisture wicking, and stain resistant. I believe once you experience them, you’ll want a set of your own. I know I did!
