I'm the kind of person who generally doesn't get nice things for myself, e.g. as a native californian, I've lived in the NE for two years without a down comforter/comforter of any kind - I figured I'd just suck it up. BUT... After being gifted a comforter by my sister who realized I was freezing when power went out/had no heat during Sandy/Ice storms -> I decided to get something with a nice high TC. These sheets have been AMAZING, and I've been recommending them to all of my friends. It's like sleeping under a cloud of warmth and happiness. No hesitation to purchase/recommend.
