They feel scratchy against the skin. These are not good sheets, certainly not luxury sheets. I feel there is no possible way that they are 800 thread and if you think you're going to be surprised at how smooth and soft they feel, then you are going to be very disappointed. I have no way of knowing this for sure, but all the five star ratings of these sheets make me very suspicious. I will say this, they are deep pocket as advertised. I have a four inch foam mattress topper and regular sheets don't fit over it; these sheets do. I just wish they weren't so scratchy.
