Soft & silky. I love how it feels in my skin. I just want to point out that the fabric is satin even though it says silk pillowcase. The seller do say that in the description that it’s satin. So if you’re looking for 100% silk fabric then this is not for you. I’ve gotta admit, the satin fabric mimics the silk very well. It must be a high quality satin. Although, I’m not a fabric expert.
