I've owned these bed sheets for about two months. They are comfortable, durable, and extremely soft. They are much thicker than previous Bamboo sheets I have owned which speaks to their quality and durability. They've survived well after many washes. I got the Gunmetal color and it's great! Highly recommended!
I have been a happy Overstock bedding purchaser for the last 15 or so years. The brand of bamboo sheets I normally get didn't have sheets available in the fullsize so I had to try these instead. For something different I went with the gun metal color which is not bad, but it does have a greenish tint to it. My issue is with the pillow cases. The edges wrinkle so badly that you really can't even iron them out properly. I realized you have to take them out of the dryer immediately, as is the case with high thread count cotton sheets, but for this price tag the pillow case edges shouldn't come out all twisted.
The sheets were very soft,but after one wash( in cold water) they shrunk so much that it was hard to stretch them to fit the bed. After the second wash, the queen size sheets are now too small to fit a full size bed. Totally not worth the price paid!
I tried ordering sheets that I had found at a different store through Overstock. When Overstock said they didn't have them, but would let me know when they came in, I was thrilled. When the notice that what I was looking for was in stock, I happily ordered the sheets. I opened the package in January and by the end of February, the sheets had pills on them. By the end of March they had shrunk so much they no longer fit my bed. This is a result of washing them once a week. They are the worst quality, not what I had expected and I would NOT recommend wasting your money on them.
We've had these a year now and they're still holding up, soft as ever and no thin spots. Since severely paring down our belongings, including bedding- we use these sheets everyday. They get washed and dried every week on gentle cycle- sometimes hung out to dry in the sun or tossed in the dryer on low heat. I've had no problem with pilling and wrinkles don't bother me, they're usually gone after a night. I have the pink and the color is still fresh. I'll be ordering these again when we get a larger mattress.
I love my new bamboo sheets! These sheets are the most comfortable bedding I've ever slept on. They are made of substantial fabric, look like sateen, and feel comfortable against one's body. I wash in cold water, dry on low; if you take them out of the dryer right away they do not wrinkle much at all. I'm looking forward to purchasing another set, well worth the money!
We've purchased several sets of bamboo/rayon sheet sets and love them. HOWEVER, we bought this set as a wedding gift for close family member about 5 months ago and after a week received thank you card saying how great they looked and felt. SOooo, we decided recently to purchase a set in this brand for our Queen Custom Latex mattress. We also thought they felt and looked great HOWEVER, after the 2nd wash - exactly according to instructions, the sheets are already shrinking to where we cannot put them on the mattress! I then phone my niece to ask how 'their' set of (this brand) sheets were doing some 4 to 5 months later and she reluctantly admitted that "after 3 or 4 washings [again, exactly per instructions] the sheets would no longer go on their Queen bed AT ALL." I felt SO frustrated and upset that the gift we gave them turned out awful and worthless, but what recourse do we have with that? I returned our set as once I saw how much they were shrinking at such a rapid rate (and before I even talked to my niece). So, we got stuck with paying for one set that ended up being useless after only a few weeks but did not know because my dear niece didn't want to hurt our feelings or make a fuss (only wished she had)! I would give this "0" stars if possible. I'm just in disbelief that Overstock carries this faulty brand. We DO have other brands in similar price range and colors of bamboo/rayon and none of them have shrunk at all. So this company is making a flawed product. BUYER BEWARE!
Out of the package the sheets seems like they are a good purchase. Extremely soft. However, after repeated washings, the fitted sheet has shrunk so badly it will no longer fit over the mattress. Keep in mind that the thickness of my mattress does not require an extra deep fitted sheet. I also followed the care instruction as laid out by the manufacturer to a T. I called the toll free customer service number in order to relay my concerns about the seemingly defective sheet. The representative took my order number and phone number and said she would gety back to me. A week later I still had not heard back. I followed up again, and she told me that there was nothing they could do as it was past the warranty period. Also keep in mind that I was only asking to have the fitted sheet replaced, not the whole set. They were unwillingly to replace it. So I am now out over $*** for a sheet set that I can no longer use. I would definitely not recommend this product, and the customer service the supports the product is non-existent.
I prewar he'd these sheets on gentle cycle and dried them on low heat cycle and they came put almost wrinkle free. Feel almost like satin/silk, and appear to be well made. Will check back in if I change my mind. Looking to buy another set
I was so excited when I opened the shipping box containing 2 packages of 2 standard pillow cases. I thought I would use these bright white pillow cases to freshen up my guest room. I was patting myself on the back for my wise purchase decision when I removed them from the package; the pillow cases were beautiful - - substantial, soft and satin-y. However, upon laundering them and removing them from the dryer, I had to slap myself in the head for purchasing pillow cases that absolutely must be ironed. There is no way these cases could be used on a bed without ironing; I also used spray starch to convince them to lie smoothly. They are silky and really pretty as they sit ironed, starched and folded in my linen closet!
I ordered these sheets five days before my out of town guest was to arrive (can you sayprocrastinate !) They arrived in four days with regular shipping. I figured if they arrived in time great, if not, I'd have to use the sheets I had. I was able to wash the set & put it on the guest bed the night before my guest arrived. They are beautiful! I purchased the steel gray queen sized set & they are very plush. Extremely soft & well made. They fit the mattress very nicely. No struggling to get that last corner to fit! My guest even mentioned them. She said "my goodness, I feel as if I'm staying in a luxury hotel. What a treat!" I am very pleased to say the least & I will be purchasing my next set soon.
