I am spoiled by high-count luxury sheets. I ordered these 650TC sheets because they came in a mint color that is very hard to find anymore. It seems that with thread counts over say....500, that it's kind of a gamble as to what kind of quality you are going to actually get. Some are great and you smile whenever you get into bed - you actually sink into the sheets. Others are just....well, OK. These sheets are just that.....OK. Not great. For having spent so much money on these, I expected them to be softer and smoother, not scratchy like fine sandpaper. They look pretty and have a sheen to them, but when you look close, you can see the actual woven threads that make up the material. You most certainly should not be seeing this for 650TC material! After debating for a week or two, I have to send them back. I don't like agonizing over it everytime I climb into bed, wondering if I made a mistake. For this much money and a higher thread count, you should be anticipating the "feel" every single time you get into bed!
