Hi Mary Kay, keep washing your sheets! By the nature of Percale weave sheets, they will always be crisper than our Luxe Sheets, but soften up with each wash. After several washes, they get softer with a touch of crispness like hotel-style sheets!
You can read about the difference between our Cool & Luxe sheets here: https://theonebed.com/pages/whats-the-difference-between-your-cool-percale-and-luxe-sateen-sheets
We do recommend our Luxe sheets if you want the softest sheets possible. We can even mix & match a set with pieces from Cool & Luxe if you desire.
