The weight of these sheets are very heavy, which I liked. The pill factor is absolutely horrible. I have given these sheets ample opportunity, I have had them since Sept '11, and they still pill terribly. The lint sticks to my duvet cover and bed skirt. We have hardwood floors, and though it has been 6 months, I still find piles of lint under my bed, yuck. I thought if I just waited it out ,and used them and used them, pill factor would improve. I would never buy these sheets again. I am looking at the MicroFleece Queen sheet set here on Overstock, or the Heavy weight German flannel sheets. I have purchased other products from Overstock, and not been disappointed, so I'll try one of the other two options.
