I thought I struck gold when I found these sheets here, but wow, the difference in brand is astounding. Usually we receive 1500 TC sheets for Christmas, because they're so luxurious, but these are like someone repackaged college dorm type sheets! They're heavy, and not in a good way. Compared to the kind we receive from *****, they feel heavy. After a couple of washings, they didn't get softer like others claimed, and now we only use them as the in-between washings of our regular sheets.
