These sheets are so soft and comfortable. They feel like the best most expensive cotton. I have only washed th the bedce, before using them. They came out of the drier well, except the wrinkles from the folds from the package stayed. Didn't bother me since the bottom stretched our when I put it on, and the top doesn't really show then once on the bed. Color is bright and beautiful, just as shown. I will order more of these for other beds in the house.
