These sheets are just as great as the comforter they go with. The color did not fade after washing and they fit nice and snug on a twin bed. Very happy with this purchase and my kids are just thrilled with them. They are not high quality 600 thread count, so to me they are a little rough. I am sure after a few washes and some time sleeping on them they will become a little softer. I asked my boys how they felt after sleeping on them and they said they are perfect and won't sleep on anything else. So as far as I am concerned this was a great purchase and I would recommend them to anyone.
