This is the second set I purchased, in Ivory, because I was very satisfied with the first set purchased a year ago. The sheets are not a heavy flannel, but are soft and warm against the skin and hold body heat in very well. Very little lint in dryer even after first wash. The fitted sheet is a generous size - fits well on my pillow top mattress. The only complaint would be that the pillowcases are standard size in a queen set and are a bit small for queen size pillows. The ends of my pillows stick out of the cases. I find this problem with all queen sheet sets. Years ago queen sheets came with queen cases, but in an effort to save money companies have cut back to standard size cases claiming they fit both standard and queen pillows.........but they really don't. My overstock purchase and delivery of item went smoothly. Very pleased.
