These are the best sheets in the world. Better than high thread count, better than anything. They are so soft and amazing. Wash them before using because it will get rid of the chemicals AND they get softer :) win/win! No pilling whatsoever. Just ridiculously perfect sheets. Sleeping will never be the same! I highly recommend you also buy the "Rayon from Bamboo/ Cotton Blanket" from Overstock (king size is cheaper than the queen right now, and fits wonderfully on a queen!). It is a wonderful blanket that truly compliments the sheets in coziness and comfort. Thank you, Overstock!!!
