i love these sheets. and you will not find a snobbier sheet snob than i. these are extremely high quality sheets. (i even made a sewing project out of the top sheet, so i know from trying to tear them along the grain that they are very well-made.) they don't pill, they are easy to wash, and they are soft. i like them as much as my 1000 thread-count, but even more for the summer because they are lighter weight. highly recommended!!
