These sheets are soft, that is the only nice thing I have to say about them. They turn into a lint ball in the washer and dryer. I washed them twice before putting them on my bed to try and get rid of some of the lint balls. I was forced to take a comb and comb off as much of the other lint balls as possible after I made the bed, two handfulls of lint. The sheets are so thin I can see through them, literally. The Queen size fitted sheet does not cover the sides of my mattress. Do not purchase these sheets as it is Overstocks policy not to return full purchase price after they have been washed.
