Purchased these sheets for our son who is going off to college. He has a loft so needed XL Twin Sheets. This was one of the only places I could find them. They are the nicest, softest sheets I have ever seen or felt. I hope he enjoys them. Thinking about getting ourselves a set. Washed up beautifully. Didn't notice any shrinkege or pilling at all. Will have to see what happens after he sleeps on them for awhile.
