I previously purchased for the first time, the1000 tc solid sateen, *I have a review about those on the product page under 5 stars* So, since I liked them so much, I thought I'd try these. I'm sooo glad I did. I like them even MORE than the 1000 sateen ones.These get softer after each wash, and although some ppl don't like them for summer, I sure do. They feel like real silk, only better. They don't have the "slimy" feel of silk sheets, but rather a luxurious softly silken feel. I PROMISE you will NOT be disappointed with these sheets.I'm saving now to buy another pair. I HATE to get out of bed when these sheets are on... I never slept naked until I bought these. I know, that maybe tmi, but wanted you to get the real deal about how great these are. You'll want to feel this material over your whole body.
