Once the sheets arrived, I was surprised at how soft they were. The last set of sheets I bought were a 1000 count set, and it took about 6 washes before they were as soft as these 750 thread count right out of the bag. And these were about $40 less and came with 4 pillow cases. Great deal, I'd say. Plus the color is very rich and looks great. I bought the chocolate color and love it.
