I bought these sheets as an impulse buy on Black Friday. When they arrived, I was disappointed in myself for ordering 350 thread count sheets as I normally prefer a much higher thread count. But, I was surprised that these sheets are so soft. This just goes to show you that thread count isn't everything. This is high quality Egyptian cotton sateen. I got the paprika color and it is a very rich burnt orange/rust color, not too orange. And, of course, as always with overstock, they arrived promptly and in excellent condition.
