    I bought a pack from Tesco and when I took them out of their wrapping they're so scratchy!! I've washed them and they're still not soft, they say they're 100% cotton. Do you think they're just crap or will they get softer after more washing?
    I washed them at 40 with fabric conditioner and then tumble dryed them.

    I'll put them in again with my next white wash. I ordered some from ebaby too so we'll see if those are any softer.

    They will soften up eventually. I got some from babies r us and sainsburys that were like sandpaper but now they are soft, it has taken about 10 weeks of regular washing though. Mothercare ones are much softer but are a little pricey.
