This is my 4th set of sheets in 5 months not because they were returns. Quite the contrary. They are absolutely incredible! I have all the colors. I look forward for their return to Costco. I mark it on my calendar. They get washed regularly and they remain soft like butter. Best sheets I have ever owned and I am very "picky" about what I purchase. I want the best and these work for me. Try them. If they are not to your liking, return them to Costco. Trust me, you will love them. I order king size cases separately because I have big pillows.
