I had bought a set of microplush sheets last year and loved them. I decided to give them to my children for Christmas and get an extra set for our guest bedroom. Whew! I have never experienced as much "pilling" and lint as when I washed my set before use! I cleaned the lint tray 4 times then tried using a lint roller to get some of the balls of lint to no avail! I could stuff a small pillow with the pills! They are wonderful, soft, cozy and I do recommend them for those reasons but be ready to have dust bunnies who are having dust bunnies!!!!
