I love the size, and they fit a very deep mattress with no problem. I grew up in Michigan and I have always been a big flannel sheet fan. They were so cozy with those Midwest winters! These sheets did not wash or dry well (cold wash/rinse, medium setting on dryer temp). They did not shrink or fade but they did pill up a bit and feel a little "scratchy" to me, but I have very sensitive skin. I don't normally use a liquid fabric softener and perhaps if I had, these sheets would have washed a little better. So in our household the jury is still out on these sheets. The price was great, the sheets fit great (and the top sheet is really big), but they didn't get that soft, worn flannel feel.
