They are not the softest but I can't complain really, for the price they do great job. My expensive pillows are safe from drools, stains and little accidents from my 2 yo
If you are looking for luxurious and soft covers these are not it. You would have to spend at least 2 times more. If you are not picky then this will work well.
I got these while they were on special for $7 now they cost $12. Would I buy them again? Yes, absolutely. $12 it's still cheap considering you get two pillows and some sell only one for that price.
