I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in these sheets since purchase. I bought the king size set in maybe the ivory color as an alternative to flannel sheets for warmth and softness. Also, because I believed that the fabric pilling would be considerably less than flannel sheets. In the past I had purchased a king size grey blanket in the microfleece, and have had absolutely no problems with any pilling. However, upon washing these sheets prior to use, I have had IMMENSE pilling from them, which has since shed on the bed, other blankets, comforters and pillows in my bed, and all over the floor. Furthermore, the pilling is also ending up being tracked all over the house from either ourselves, clothing, and our dog. It has become quite a considerable mess and looks like it has "snowed" inside my house. Therefore, I would highly discourage anyone from purchasing these sheet sets, and I had spent a good amount of money for the king size. The only positive thing I can mention is that the deep fitted pockets work fine and the fabric is especially soft. However the immense pilling outweighs the few positives from this purchase. In the morning I have pilling in my hair, pajamas, the dog, the floor, and everywhere else they get scattered in my house after we awake. I am hoping this will change in the subsequent washing.
