I expected a smooth, soft texture from the thread count of these sheets. Instead it was scratchy and unpleastant to the touch. Of the three sets I ordered, I returned two. I would have returned them all, but I had washed the one set to see if that would soften the texture--it did not. And it ended up extremely wrinkled and was difficult to iron. The return fee charges also were excessive. I will think very carefully before I order anythink from Overstock again.
