I loved these sheets when I first received them! So much so that I ordered another pair. Then after a few months I noticed something peculiar about these sheets. The area where I sleep on seems to have developed pilling and is extremely uncomfortable to sleep on. I am extremely disappointed that this happened. I have a front load washer and dryer and followed all instructions for washing that were listed. I have bought sheets from Overstock.com for years and always loved them but this experience has made me reconsider my choice. Now I have two expensive pairs of sheets that I am wondering I can use for anything else. It did not happen right away so I assumed they were good. I am going to contact the company but I assume that it is too late to return. It is a shame as the color was vibrant and the heaviness of the sheets led me to believe that they would last a long time!
