Top critical review
These are very white. And thats the best thing I can say.

This is one of times when you review a product, in this case, were talking about 500 thread count white pillow cases, and the best thing you can say is "boy these are certainly WHITE".
Normally on high end sheets, the material feels good. And these felt great coming out of the package. So into the front load washer, warm, Woolite, then Downey, and dried the cases felt rough, bordering on abrasive. Well, think I, maybe a second washing. Nope. Third? Nope. By the time we hit fifth wash with no improvement.
So I had a neighbor over for coffee and asked her to look pillow cases - she's a designer - and she was at a loss for words. "They certainly have a lot of threads per inch," said she. But she agreed, that the fabric felt stiff, abrasive.
So I stuck them on two pillows on the bed, and it was worse once the pillow was supplying push back. And off they came. Back into the wash all week, no improvement. I mean cotton begins to soften as the fibers get broken in, but this fabric still felt like high end burlap. Frankly, I have given up.
These are not soft, and not something I want my face to rest upon. And looking at the ratings, and the rave reviews, maybe they had a bad batch. But these, on our bed? No.
I sincerely hope your experience is better.
