I was super excited when I ordered these sheets. I had purchase my favorite sheets that were only 400TC, but amazingly soft and luxurious. I figured these 800TC would be at least as good. Nope. I got them and washed them the same day so I could put them on my bed. SCRATCHY. I had to actually take the flat sheet off the bed and just use the fitted sheet & my duvet to just fall asleep. This is probably the last time I'll be ordering sheets online, instead I will go to the store and feel out the sheets before buying. I will say, however, they have gotten slightlyyy better over the last month, but still wouldn't call them soft.
