I do NOT understand why people say these sheets feel like canvas. These sheets are so soft! They have a real luxurious feel to them. You can tell they are of very good quality. I previously bought 1,000 thread-count sheets that did feel like canvas. Those sheets are now getting nice and soft but they are 5 years old. For these new sheets, they are heavy in that there is such a high thread count but they are NOT heavy for 1,200 thread count sheets. I hope that makes sense. I was so thrilled when I saw how nice they are. I highly recommend these.
