Idk why there are bad reviews! I have sensory issues and can’t STAND itchy or subpar sheets. I’ve bought 200dllr egyptian cotton sets at bed bath and cheap sets like these on Amazon. If you’re a minimalist like myself these days def buy this set. I have no pilling honestly, super soft still, and a few small holes here and there. Honestly that’s my fault because I slapped a queen set on a cali king (it fits). For the price…I definitely am pleasantly surprised.
