I waited until now to give this purchase a rating. This is a first time that I have given something other than 5 stars. I have used and washed the sheets 5 times. I did that to give the product a fair appraisal. I have never taken so much lint out of the dryer with any flannel garment or sheet set. I've decided to use the sheets for covering stored furniture. The sheets were a big disappointment. Oh, they also had white spots where there should not have been any.
