I was pleased with the price and I thought 1000 thread count sheets at this price was great but I am sorely disappointed. The contour sheet fit perfectly on my mattress until it was washed once and then I had to really tug and pull it get it on. The width is fine but the length is very short. When I opened the package one pillow case had a long thread that had pulled making a long run in the fabric. They were pretty except there are small spatter-like spots in various places as if it had been spattered with bleach or the dye didn't take in those spots. They are rough to the touch and feel more like muslin to sleep on. After I washed them I had to resew the whole top seam. The underside of the turn-down edge had frayed and was coming apart in 5 different places along the top. One place was about 5 inches long the the others maybe 3 inches. I had to zigzag it on my sewing machine as there was only a fraction of an inch of fabric to tuck under. The top side was puckered but it was at least intact. I guess it's true, you do get what you pay for. At under ****for 1000 count sheets in king size I should have known better.
These sees are similar in quality to other 1000 count all-cotton sheets purchased from Overstock; the 60/40 blend makes them not as heavy as 100% cotton. I bought both king and queen sizes and am happy with both. The stripe gives an orientation to the king size and makes putting them on easier. They are not shiny like a sateen and a a bit softer out of the box than 100% cotton. After a couple of washes they feel like all cotton sheets.
I was sticker shocked after going to the mall to purchase sheets. These were a higher thread count and about *** less then the seheets I was looking at. The extra two pillow shams are also very nice. The sheets are a nice weight and look true to color. The only thing I'm not happy about is they said deep-pocket in the description, but not on the packaging and they are just a little too short for my mattress.
The gray is very bluish. Not what I expected at all. The sheets have little spots -- thin areas -- on them. They sent me a second pair but they had the same issue. I'll keep them because they are a lot cheaper than other stores but it is not the quality I expected from other purchases with overstock.
This sheet set balls up after a few washes. I slept on them for a couple of months until I could feel the material starting to ball up. meaning, there are tiny balls all over them. I've since taken them off my bed and only use them as backups. Like when I don't get my sheets dried before bed. I thought buying a higher thread count meant better quality. Not in this case.
The color of the sheets are bright, bold and cheerful. After removing from the packaging I gave them a gentle wash before making the bed, after 2 nights the sheets began to pill. The sheets were pretty expensive to be this cheap. If these are 1000 count I would be shocked. Save your hard earned dollars, this is quality you would find at your local large chain discounter for half the price. Very disappointed.
