If you want a "direct screen printed" look with a "soft hand" feel, you will need to use a specially formulated hot split transfer plastisol ink.
When applying a heat transfer using transfers printed with hot split plastisol ink, a portion of the ink remains on the paper and the remainder is transferred to the garment--thus the name the "hot-split." Hot split plastisol inks come in regular opacity as well as high opacity formulations.
