Very stiff coarse cotton, with chemical smell. Needed to wash before using, due to odor and stiffness. Followed directions using warm water and cool dryer. Ended up with a shrunken wrinkled mess. Instructions say NOT to use iron, which makes no sense if these are supposedly 100% cotton. In any case, the shrunk 2 inches in width, making them too small to use, and causing the coarse zipper at the end to buckle. Even if they fit my pillow I wouldn't use, because the fabric is coarse and wrinkled. VERY POOR QUALITY. I should have checked the reviews more carefully. I now notice that the good reviews were in the past, and all the bad reviews are recent. There must have been a recent change in quality.

Hello! We apologize for the inconvenience. For a replacement, please bring the item back to Target or e-mail our customer service team at CustomerService@americantextile.com.
Disappointed! I will be returning these pillow protector cases. This very first thing I notice when I opened the package was how firm the material felt. Upon further inspection, I found that the overall feel wasn't quite right, almost as if the matterial was coated and similar to the feel of non-wrinkle treated cotton. Ultimately I decided to give them a try as they had fantastic reviews. One laundry and dryer cycle later...and the was a wrinkled balled up mess! Okay, pull out the iron...after pressing each cover, two were sewn uneven on both sides causing the case to twist rather than lay flat end to end. Bottom line: The material did NOT soften or loosen after being laundered. Iron my cases...ugh NO WAY! This reviewer will most certainly stick to my "tried and true" brand which is Fieldcrest 100% cotton premium pillow casses...an overall a much superior product.
I think these are good quality for the price. After reading many reviews across the Target website, I went with this online-only product to avoid the thin, paper like covers or the thick quilt like covers. These are mediocrely sturdy, similar to a thick sheet. I didn't want anything extra (bug proof or water proof) - just simple protection to elongate the life of my pillows. I think these will do the job - and are soft to the touch - the zippers were well done. The package reads "standard/queen 20" x 28" 50cm X 71cm", 240 thread count, 5 year warranty, and definitely "Made in China".
I bought these to cover a jumbo standard down pillow and they fit perfectly without squashing the down pillow. They are about two inches longer than a standard skimpy pillow cover. Well made. Washed out beautifully. Nice zippers. When I rate it true to size, I mean true to jumbo standard size for a standard-queen pillow.
