Question about bed sheets?

I have a very old set of Royal Velvet 100% Pima Cotton sheets that I love b/c they are soooo soft. However, I can't find a store anywhere that sells them. My question is this: Is it the Pima cotton that makes them so soft? In other words, if I buy any brand of Pima Cotton sheets, will they be as soft? ... show more I have a very old set of Royal Velvet 100% Pima Cotton sheets that I love b/c they are soooo soft.

I have always heard the higher the count, the better the sheets, but I bought some Egyptiam cotton 1000ct sheets and they are very heavy and stiff. I like the pima cotton ones because they are extremely soft and thin. Any input is greatly appreciated!
