Sadly, these sheets look much better than they are. When I received them, I noticed one pillow case was made of a different fabric than the rest of the sheet set (perhaps a freak mistake at the factory?). It also had some strange stitching. Overstock gave me a discount on the order when I called about that. After 1 wash, they now have a hole in one corner and the thread is about to give out in a couple other places. Very disappointing.
