Having tried several famous brands, as well as department store brands, I have to say that these are the BEST flannel sheets I have ever tried. Soft, thick, and machine wash and dry well. No pilling. I have two sets of King size, bought for a CA King bed, one bought last year and the other recently. (The amethyst color is more like a burgundy wine color than a true amethyst.) The top sheet is oversized for ample coverage. Top of the line sleeping comfort. Truly LUXURY flannel sheets!
