I have heard that 'only older people' like these sheets, abd that they are a wrinkled mess when they're washed. Considering the list of things that are added to our materials to make them soft and wrinkle-free, I'll take these wrinkled, crisp, natural sheets any day of the week! These sheets do come out wrinkled (and I do not iron them) but they are so unbelievably comfortable and I love the colors offered. I say "YAY! for old-school awesomeness!!
First, it would be helpful if the description (or even the drop down menu) for the pillowcases stated it was for a pair. Nowhere on the whole page did I see "pair" or "set" or "cases" mentioned. So I had to figure the price was for one and ordered (2), which turned out to be 2 pair. That would not have been a problem though if I had liked them. One can always use good pillowcases! However, these are just too coarse. I washed twice and even ironed them to see if they'd smooth out. But no. I'm so disappointed :(
I wish this shopping for bed linens was a lot simple and straight forward....it's hard to understand why some customers praise a product and others hate it...and hard to know if the ones who extoll the products actually ARE customers... also the language...why not say PER item or PER set???? And the confusion with counts and what it really means...what is needed is HONESTY AND CLARITY - WHICH WOULD BE FOLLOWED BY POTENTIAL CUSTOMER CONFIDENCE
Pretty happy with this purchace. The sheets wash up well, and have not had any pilling. However, if you don't remove them immediately from the dryer, they wrinkle terribly. They are very soft and comfortable to sleep on and I would recommend these to any of my friends. I am pleased with tem.
My only problem with the full fitted sheet is that, although I have a deep mattress, this sheet seems to grow during sleeping, making a puddle of sheet in the morning. Ordered queen flat sheet for full bed so edges would stay tucked in---perfect. Sheets are heavy and wrinkle some, but that is not a problem. I will probably order these again, when they need replaced.
If I could give this less than one star I would. I ordered a percale sheet. What I got was something that is nowhere near what a percale sheet is supposed to be. When the package arrived I saw the label said Egyptian Cotton. I was skeptical because I have not liked Egyptian cotton in the past. But I thought I would try because this product was described as percale and I have purchased cotton sheets before that were not this terrible. This one wrinkles something awful and is not crisp but rough. Whatever happened to percale sheets that did not wrinkle and were pleasant sleep on? Of course I washed it and it can not be returned. What a waste of $40. I will hesitate to order from Overstock because I don't have money like that to throw away product descriptions are not accurate. Oh and by the way, this is not blue like picture. It is definitely a blue-green color. Leaning more toward green.
I purchased two flat sheets. They are very hard to come by if not purchased in a set. Sheets are of good quality, and they were delivered promptly. I was slightly disappointed that the white sheet was not snow white. Otherwise these are very good. I would purchase from them again.
We knew by the thread count and depth size of the sheet it would more than replace our damaged sheet. We were unprepared for how much it exceeded by expectations. The color coordinated with our existing decor perfectly. The elastic all the way around secures the sheet better. We will buy this again when we need more colors.
I was starting to think that what I was looking for was more elusive than a unicorn: Sheet separates; 100% cotton percale at least 350 TC; and fits my 12" foam mattress. I've been able to find the material I want, but it was always in a set and ALWAYS for mattresses up to 18" or larger. I like my sheets to fit tightly so why are ALL sheets made for such thick mattresses when there are so many thinner foam mattresses out there now? Well this is as close as I've ever come. The material isn't as smooth and crisp as I would like, but it's definitely comfy and do-able. And definitely fits my foam mattress without bunching up on me as soon as I get under the covers. I also don't care about whether or not a sheet is wrinkly since it smooths out as soon as it's on the bed. This sheet isn't really that wrinkly anyway, as long as you're diligent about folding it as soon as it's dry. My biggest complaint so far (I've only had the sheet/pillowcases on the bed for less than a week) is the serious lack of color choices. Also, while perusing the choices the colors aren't written for all of them when you click on the choice. But hey, if you want 4 different tones of beige then no problem, right? Hopefully this sheet will last and get a little softer as I use it.
