These are beautiful sheets, but they are very heavy and I expected them to have a much softer finish. My first thought when laying on them the first night after washing and using fabric softener was, "Am I sleeping on paper bags? " Rough finish. The material is beautiful, finished well, no ragged edges anywhere. But don't they look like they'd be a little softer/slicker in the picture? I'm not going to send them back, but I'm not going to buy another set, either.
