These sheets are very soft! I've washed them several times now and all of the threading is still in tact. I have a king sized tempurpedic bed, so I was worried that the sheets might come loose on the corners when we adjust the bed into an upright seated position, but they haven't slipped off once!! This is a big win for us. No more fighting with the corners to stay in place because these sheets have deep pockets and sturdy seams! I'll be buying more of these in multiple colors for all of our beds.
