These sheets are a lovely color and feel smooth and sturdy with out being too crisp. Unfortunately, I am disappointed with the overall quality. After using the sheets for 1 week, they have started to pill. I attempted to wash them with a softener to see if it would help, but it seems to only be getting worse. The areas where the pilling occurs makes the sheets scratchy and uncomfortable. Usually I would blame myself for trying to get a good deal, but I purchased another sheet set around the same price with a lower thread count that has handled much better. I would not purchase this item again, nor would I recommend it.
