These are fantastic sheets! Made in America! Very heavy, satiny luxurious feel, like hotel linens. Very impressed. Soft out of the box, even softer after washing. I'm so happy with these sheets that I'm buying more. Don't waste your money on multiples sets of sheets, buy 1 or 2 good sets. Pay a little more, buy quality, it will last. Very generous in size, I have a pillow top plus a 2" memory foam topper and I still have a little room left. After reading much debated thoughts on machine washing temperature, I decided to go with cold water for the wash. They came out very well. No piling. I highly recommend these sheets. I purchased the white, so I have no experience with the colored versions.
