I usually buy 1000TC sheets, but they wear out quickly and I have no idea why. I read somewhere that lower count sheets dry faster and last longer. So why not give them a try, I thought. These sheets are very silky and soft. Very luxurious feeling. However, when they say "deep pockets" believe it! I have a deep mattress and the bottom sheet is loose and a bit baggy on the sides, like a sloppily-made bed. I am used to sheets that cover the mattress nicely, but have a nice, snug finish on the edges. That isn't going to happen with these sheets. I gave them 4 stars only because of the fit. If that doesn't bother you, these are perfect.
