well...I have been reading and reading reviews to find soft and high quality sheets. I loved the hemstitch detail on these. The bottom sheet seam came apart - too tight on the mattress. I am now aware that reading the sheet measurement is a good idea as the bottom sheet and the top sheet sizes do vary and it's nice to have enough material for both. They felt like stiff paper - I washed them about 6 times and when the seam opened up on the bottom sheet, I gave up on them and sent them back. Overstock was GREAT in the way they handled the return! I read in reviews that you have to wash them about 20 times before they are soft. I have also read that single ply is better than double ply and sometimes these high thread counts are double ply....so still searching for great sheets! If you are willing to wash them 20 times and your mattress fits the size (i ordered king), them you might want to give them a try.
