I'm a real snob about sheets and these are in my top 3 favorite sheets. I've never spent $300 on sheets, so if thats your thing, ignore me. If you like the feeling of luxury but are a little more budget minded. The last time i got these they were on sale for $79 for a king set and stocked up. They are silky because of the sateen finish, 100% cotton and they last. I've used them in my airbnb.
