I have slept on many sheets, but these sheets are THE best. I absolutely love love these sheets! They are soft. They are cool to sleep on. Living in a southern state it is hard to find the total package in a set of sheets. I pre-washed the sheets prior to using as suggested. There was no discoloration nor shrinking. The color is just as vibrant as it was when I opened the package! Again, if you are looking for the perfect sheets, this is it!
