If you are use to Egyptian cotton sheets, these will be a disappointment. Not very soft. All in all, not bad. I would say softness about a medium. Not as soft as Percale sheets. I read many reviews and decided these were the best because I did not want sheets that "pill" and the reviews did say these did not. I think they are a nice quality weight. The bottom sheet is a little big but ok. Our mattress is not that thick although I have a 2 inch memory foam mattress on top of the regular mattress and there still is plenty room for thicker mattresses. I would recommend these sheets. The Sage color that I received is very pretty. I have washed the sheets 3 times and am pleased with the way they come out of the dryer. There is a chemical smell when you get them but that washes ou with the first wash.
