I bought these sheets on Black Friday, so I got them cheaper than the price currently listed, but even at the current price they are a great deal. The set I received are Chris Madden from JC Penney. I checked the price in the store and the 600 tc sets were on sale for more than this price! They didn't have any 800 tc for me to compare. These sheets are heavy and thick, but at 800 tc they should be. They are getting softer after every washing and every night we sleep on them (which has been every night since they came!!) They are a bit stiff at first, but just keep getting better and better! I should have bought two sets!!
