These sheets are exactly as described. They are generously sized to fit deep pockets. Silky soft right out of the package, I didn't need to pre-wash, and just put them immediately onto the bed for a wonderful sleep. The sheets breathe well and seem strong though feel light as a feather. I have been searching for the softest sheets possible for decades, and now I've finally found them. Assuming they wash well (I've heard the cheap bamboo/blended sheets will pill), I will never go back to cotton again, since even 1200tc Egyptian cotton doesn't compare to these. Perfect in every way, I'm extremely pleased with the quality - well worth the cost. You really do get what you pay for.
