These sheets are exactly what I expected. My brother, back east, bought a set of Egyptian Cotton sheets from a local, swap-meet type dealer and when he told me that he only paid $25 dollars for a complete full set, I told him that was not even close but really hard to believe. His sheets were very, very thin and it was then that I told him he'd been taken. I then bought both he and myself a set of these sheets from Overstock.com and we both have them on our beds and they are exceptional. They are everything I knew real Egyptian Cotton sheets are and my brother can not only see and feel the difference between these wonderful sheets but he now understands that dishonesty knows no boundaries. Get these before they disappear! You will love them!
