I didn't know what microfiber was before I ordered these sheets and now I will never order anything different! Very soft, but not fuzzy like flannel. Slightly shiny too. So beautiful and smooth! I ordered the cream colored and they coordinate nicely with my smokey blue duvet cover. The corners do tend to start slipping up and making the fitted sheet not so fitted, but I think that's because I have a super pillow top matress. The king sized set comes with king sized pillow cases so that's nice too. I think I'm going to order these same sheets in a different color--if there's any left!
