I was a bit hesitant to purchase after reading other reviews but the color was what I wanted and the price was right. We LOVE these sheets. Our bedroom has three exterior walls with no insulation and instead of shelling out 3K for insulation right now, I thought we would give these sheets a try. They are amazing - so soft and always warm. I have not had any problems with shedding although after two washes there is considerable pilling but it hasn't changed the softness of the sheets. I will definitely be buying more of these sheets!
