After looking through some mixed reviews of other brands, I decided to go ahead and pay a little more for a real brand name that would last. And while the sheets aren't the softest, they were definitely comfortable to sleep for a time. But the life span of these is terrible. I bought them to rotate with another set and the quality QUICKLY deteriorated. After maybe a few washes and a month of use they starting piling and roughening up to the touch. I just threw them away after MAYBE a half dozen total washes and they were trash. They felt like something from the attic bedroom at your grandparents. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
