Bought two of these pillowcase sets in the King size and Medium Blue color, and two sets in the King size and Sage color. The colors match the 1500 TC sheets perfectly, and are as pictured. Both Medium Blue sheets and pillowcases are a saturated medium blue color, although the Sage color is slightly less saturated than the picture on my monitor shows. Both Med Blue and Sage look very expensive and high-quality. They are large pillowcases that fit my king size pillows well, with a little room to spare. But People, PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH before you buy high Thread Count sheets. Don't give low reviews, or waste your money, simply because you were ignorant of what you were ordering. High TC sheets start out being heavy and a little stiff when you first open the package, but they soften up by washing and using them. The higher the TC, the heavier the sheets, so these sheets are heavy. Lower thread count sheets will be initially more pliable and more "airy" feeling, because there are fewer threads per square inch, so they actually are more airy since there is more air between threads. If you like light weight, airy sheets, get low TC or cotton-blend sheets. Initial softness in cotton sheets depend on the quality of the cotton used, and whether they have been pre-softened before you buy them. Having your sheets pre-softened means that they are usually more expensive, because of the extra time and processes involved. These sheets have not been pre-softened, so we are able to buy them cheaper than you would otherwise. Also note that all cotton sheets, especially higher TC sheets, WILL WRINKLE and take more time to dry! If you have multiple sets, which I recommend, fold the other set when it comes out of the dryer, putting your folded pillowcases between the bottom and top sheets so the weight naturally presses them, and put the set away. When you take them out to change sheets, the folded set will have lost most of the wrinkles. By alternating sheet sets, and folding the unused set, you shouldn't have to iron your sheets. If you are still unsatisfied with your minor wrinkles, or if you only have one set, you can iron your sheets if it really bugs you. These particular sheets and pillowcases are beautiful and have held up well after washing. They are exactly what you would expect from 1500 TC sheets, will last forever, and are far less expensive on the big O than elsewhere.
From the moment I opened the package I knew I was in love. Since I have sensitive skin, I usually do not purchase bedding without touching it first. However, I decided to take a chance after a self-proclaimed "sheet snob" co-worker recommended the luxury sheets on overstock. Since my purchase I have ordered 5 more sets and only wash them together to protect the fabric. It is also important to note that to experience the full luxury and softness of these sheets one must wash them properly. While cheap sheets fall apart after repeated washings, these sheets only get softer. Even though I am not one of high financial income, these sheets and pillowcases are an essential investment in my sleep.
Bought these in addition to the sheet set, also 1500tc. They are even softer after washing and are a dream to sleep on. We have never been disappointed by any of the sheet sets that we have gotten here. We started with LOL 600tc set went to 800 then 1000. My wife says I am addicted to sheets.
I wrote a review of the sheets and these pillowcases had exactly the same issue. First set had holes when they arrived. Second set started shredding in multiple places after being carefully washed in a large load new washer and line dried after 60 days. No refunds or credits allowed since it is past the refund time frame. Overstock does NOT stand behind the quality of their products after 30 days. I was offered a 15 refund. Even after speaking to a supervisor.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Horrible.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Horrible.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Horrible.
How awesome are these sheets? Totally luxurious. Very thick 100% cotton sheets that will last years and years. They do wrinkle easily but who cares? You put them on the bed and put a blanket or comforter on top anyway so a few wrinkles really don't matter, but after they are on the bed, they straighten out. I ordered other sheets on another popular website and when they came they were NOT thick and 100% cotton. These sheets will soften up with a few washes, but I actually like the crispness. So much so that I bought a second set!!! You won't be sorry, buy them and enjoy!!!
This is the second set of these sheets I have purchased. I waited for a good sale and coupon and got them for a reasonable price. I won't buy anything else now. They are expensive, but if you like the better things you are going to like these. Be prepared if you get the King size, that they will have to be shuffled a couple times in your dryer to keep them from balling up because they are heavy weight. They do require a break-in period to soften up, and ironing helps this. But after the third washing the roughness goes and you have something wonderful.
Nice weight and feel, silky; still a little stiff but they've only been washed twice and you can tell they'll become buttery-soft over time. Pillowcases are ample even for thick pillows (a constant annoyance on a different set we previously bought from Overstock). The fitted sheet is actually a little loose, even on our stupidly thick mattress, so it has room to shrink a little over time. My only complaint is that the flat sheet tends to roll up at the bottom and side hems, instead of lying flat. Many heavy sheets do this though.
I like firm, crisp sheets, which these are. I had similar sheets about 5 years ago, that wore out, and I couldn't find again. I ended up with sheets still with a very high 1000+ thread count, but they were soft. I have 3 lambs wool balls that I use in my dryer, so these sheets dry faster than they would otherwise due to the volume of material. People will really either love these sheets, like I do, or hate them, because they want softer sheets.
