I had purchased a set of these sheets a couple of years ago in a different color. They are still so warm and soft. When I received this latest sheet I was a little disappointed because it didn't seem quite as thick as the original set I bought. After washing though, it is a well made and good quality sheet. The best thing about these sheets is that the extra deep pocket fits easily on my 17" mattress and doesn't slip off. I would rate them 5 starts except I think they are just a bit pricey.
