If your idea of soft is a sheet that cuddles around you, these are not the sheets for you. They are very, very stiff and very heavy. I weighed a set of nice 400ct sheets. They weighed 2 lbs. These sheets weigh 6 lbs, three times heavier than any sheets I have ever seen. When you fold them they take twice as much room up as any other sheets. They wrinkle a LOT and I don't find them to be very soft. They are more slick than soft. I have washed and dried them four times and they are not much better. I will probably just give them to the salvation army.
