It seems like the luxury sheet industry has decided to market itself purely on thread-count, which used to be a good measure of how fine and silky a given set of sheets might be. But that no longer works. These sheets could be the poster-child for the problem. Claiming a magnificent 1500 thread-count, what you have is not ultra-fine threads lined up in perfect order giving you a single weave of surpassing perfection, but instead what I'd describe as a very heavy canvas of normal sized threads woven together to deliver the required thread count, but resulting in a VERY heavy sheet that's more about thickness and weight than about silky perfection and texture. I decent sheet, but not near as nice as some 500 thread count sheets I've used in the past. Good news, it didin't cost much. Can anyone manage to make a serious luxury sheet with ultra-fine threads woven tight and perfect like what the 800 thread count sheets of 20 years ago did?
