This Egyptian Cotton 1200 thread count is definitely the best sheets that is out there. A lot of people prefer the sateen sheets which slides and is very slippery. Before upgrading to the Kingsdown King Size bed, we had a queen size and were using a high quality (900tc) and it was very comfortable, but this 1200 tc is by far the most comfortable I've had. I'm very happy with my purchase and will be purchasing the other different colors. F.Y.I. There is a 1000tc that is available by other manufactures that is listed on overstock, but it isn't as half as good as the Egyptian Cotton 1200tc. I know because I made a mistake in purchasing the 1000tc.
