Official description

The Masta Avante cotton summer sheet is made from 100% high quality cotton. The rug features an anti-rub satin chest, cross surcingles, fillet string and fleece wither pad for added comfort.

First impressions

I was quite put off by the thick, stiff material and the rug as a whole looked quite old fashioned.

Overview of performance

I found that this rug felt quite rigid even after being washed and as a summer sheet was slightly too thick compared to the others tested. My initial opinion of it being rather old fashioned proved to be correct.

Georgi’s likes and dislikes

It’s true to size, which is great, but I am not a fan of the stiff feel of the rug.

Verdict

I would recommend you see it before you buy it as you may love it or you might not.
