These pillow protectors are so soft and don't have the cheap, plastic feel of many pillow protectors that are not cotton-rich. The performance is great too, wicking moisture well. My only complaint is that the fabric has puckered in some spots after washing, but this does not affect the performance of the cases.
Good value for price. Thick with a decent zipper. Individually wrapped in plastic envelope and cardboard insert, which was a drag to open each and throw away a huge pile of mostly non-recyclable garbage. Plasticky smell eliminated with a wash. Some minimal shrinkage. Fit snugly.
These are quality covers which fit our new king size pillows very well. The fabric is soft and the zippers work well. Although the cover is not described as allergen proof, the fabric is tightly woven and should help to protect from allergens. We selected it because it did not have a plastic lining that makes us sweat.
Good covers, soft and a great price. They do say "wash in cold" . I did not know they weren't pre-shrunk -it wasn't mentioned in the original ad. I never wash whites in cold. I knew they would shrink, I felt, " better to know now if they aren't going to work." So yes, they did shrink. Still quite useable, though the pillow is a tad more compact - that's not a bad thing for an old feather pillow; makes it smaller but fluffier. Still a good deal. Still would buy them again knowing this.
This product is a disaster. I would not recommend anyone buying this set of pillow protectors for regular bed pillows. My pillows are all rectangular for standard/queen, and these pillow protectors are in a square with the zip on one side. Consequently they are too large and not a good fit. I cannot return goods as I live in a very remote region and have no delivery services. I have to rely on the accuracy of product descriptions, and this one is not accurate.
