Updated 5/21/19 - this post is a joke. 10,000 thread count sheets are a scam. See here: https://www.mysanantonio.com/realestate/article/The-Best-Thread-Count-for-Bedsheets-Is-Not-as-12785046.php
If you like, continue reading my experience below. Then, visit the Over-18 category of my blog, because I know you will anyway. [SPOILERS] You will be disappointed.
Recently I bought a set of 1,000 thread count sheets online. Just for the twin bed in the guest room. I felt this was quite an extravagance.
I read the comments about the softness, the luxury, and then the one troll comment about how these sheets were CRAP THE WORST SHEETS EVER PIECE OF SHIT SHEETS WHAT A RIP-OFF NOT SOFT AT ALL.
Someone else commented that, dumbass, you have to wash them a few times before they reach maximum softness.
This was an understatement. After one washing you can fold these sheets. After four washings you can make a Carnival Towel Animal out of the pillowcase.
If you don't recognize it, that's because it's Egyptian.
Seriously, this stuff is like twill. I could make jeans out of these sheets. I might wash them two more times and then I'm putting them on the bed this weekend.
