I bought these pillow cases to go with a set I already had. They matched very well. I washed them before I used them but they still aren't as soft as I'd like. I assume they will get softer after more washings. These are thick winter sheets and pillow cases, good for warmth but not very plyable. If you're using them with a very soft down pillow you may not be happy with them. But they certainly hold up.
Great product with excellent price. I figured that this is somewhat generic (no brand) but the quality is superb. You can really feel the difference. I always buy sheets with tc higher than 600 for quality. Target and walmart brands dont match this type... this one is far better.
