You would expect 1000 thread count to be super-soft and this does not disappoint. This fabric is very high quality with no defects. It is of very high quality as is the workmanship. Every thread is straight and perfect. I used a jumbo down filled pillow which fits great. It plumped up the pillow. I would of paid twice as much and be happy. For the price and quality, it is indeed a bargain. The great thing about the "o" is that you are not limited by the vendor. It is important to give feedback. The best vendors will rise and poor quality products will be dropped.
Amazing quality... heavy, tightly woven cotton... reminds me of light twill khakis; however, soft and plush. Gussetted so they'll accommodate large, overstuffed pillows. Strong zippers so they shouldn't come off track like other, cheaper covers. I couldn't be happier. Something you're not going to find in any store.
