These were purchased for someone who is always cold. He likes them and when I felt the weight I was surprised. These are heavy. The pillow cases are cut small for a standard pillowcase with the Full Set. They should have been cut larger for a standard pillow. They have been washed twice and no problems. Other than the pillowcases being smaller than usual, this is a warm set of sheets, if you do not mind sleeping on flannel. The chocolate color was just that - a dark chocolate brown. Fit was fine.
