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.
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.
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.
Had these for less than 3 months when the hem stitching began coming loose. Now about 6 months in, there is "wear" in one of the stripes, right about where my foot is at the bottom of the bed. I believe they were poorly made of poor materials. I am not happy with them, but won't return them as I have used and washed them often. I've had sheets that lasted 15 years. These won't make two years. So disappointed. I'll wait till there's a January White Sale and buy from a store where I can feel them AND return them if I need to without mailing back.
This set of sheets are amazing. You cannot go wrong with this purchase. This set is a perfect way to spoil yourself or someone you love. The quality is outstanding and last for years. The 1000 count requires you wash the sheet set once or twice before the set feels comfortable. Please note this process is a given with high quality linen. We ordered four sets and ordered three sets for family 4.5 years ago and ours are 5-star quality to this date. I am currently ordering five more sets for family Christmas gifts.
Bought these last week and overall not bad sheets at all. Although, they are not 1000 tc. I'm a big bedding buff and love my heavy comfortable quality sheets! I have 600-800 tc sets that put these to shame when it comes to durability and comfort. But, like I said these arent bad if you're looking for a good set of sheets.
