I purchased these sheets to update my grandson's (11) room. Everyone loves them!!! even straight out of the package they were soft and felt silky next to your skin. Please remember buyer the product has washing instructions label for a reason and I followed them to the letter with no issues. If anythng washing only made the sheets softer and more comfortable.They have deep pockets allowing them to fit the largest of pilllow-tops. I am very happy with this purchase and will be buying another set in queen size. This is a good purchase no regrets.
