We ordered these sheets after staying at a relative's house and falling in love with their luxuriously soft sheets. They told us they were from overstock and 1000 count, but didn't know any other details. I saw good reviews for these sheets, and thought "if 1000 count is soft and luxurious, 1500 count must be even better". So far we're not thrilled with these sheets. We've washed them 4 times and they still feel relatively stiff and not too soft. They also feel really heavy and will probably be great in the winter, but we're sweltering in them at night now during July. They don't feel at all breathable because they're so heavy. We're still hoping they'll get softer with a few more washes. We don't hate them, just hope they'll get better soon so they're more like what we expected.
