When I purchased these sheets I was curious to see what 800 thread count felt like. It feels like you're rich! They are smooth and thick; almost heavy enough to use without a blanket. I love the stripes; it's easy to figure out which way they go on the bed when you've washed them. I likes them so much I purchased a set for our guest room. Our company sure feels pampered. The price was right and the quality is fantastic! Get them!!
