We searched for another set that I bought from overstock a few years ago and they were discontinued. I decided on these after reading the reviews and I'm happy I bought them. They are soft and don't pill but like another reviewer said, you have to follow the wash instructions. I have and they come out of the dryer softer than the time before. I gave four stars because the only odd thing about them is the width seems too short. My husband and I laugh because we tend to play tug of war when we first get in bed. Oh, and it does keep me from sweating.
