Ive ordered sheets with a low thread count because I love crisp sheets that feel cool and percale is the answer. These sheets feel rough and are very thin. I avoid using them and wish before washing that I had returned them. They are very rough and I am not a customer that is hard to please. A waste of money.
I bought this sheet set for my guest bed. I definitely noticed the difference in thread count - the sheets were rougher, and not as soft. But for what I needed them for (an occasional guest), they work well. I wouldn't get them if i was sleeping on them every night. But i also have sensitive skin, and notice the texture of things more than most people.
Gift to family, with 4 children, in MN, and they were so pleased to have new sheets for the kids' beds, so I ordered 4 sets. The mother was very pleased to have sheets she can use in a warm house in the winter and still use them in the hot muggy summers of Minnesota
I sent these as a gift and the recipient used them (once) so I couldn't send them back. What an embarrassment! I can't imagine what was done to this fabric to make it both unbearably stiff and sand-paper rough, but I'd like to think the buyer who made the purchase for O.com didn't check the feel of them, instead of thinking they were deliberately foisted off onto customers. They are simply miserable and laundering them made absolutely NO difference. They are suitable only for cutting up into rags. I have excellent luck with Overstock, but this time around? Junk.
Don't put too much thought into my opinion on these sheets... I never even took them out of the package. I ordered LAVENDER, yet the sheets were a dusty rose, which was not near to the color I expected, so I returned them. My caution would be to not count on a match between what the color name is, and what you receive.
Was really disappointed with the texture of this product....Although the thread count is 250, the feel of the sheets are very rough and almost plasticky. The sheets feel synthetic and actually squeak when you rub the heels of your feet across the sheets when you're laying down. I got another duvet cover from a different company, there were 300 count, and they feel soft and silky. I will not buy the Percale sheets again.
It says "Luxury Linens" on the label but they're not. They felt stiff and almost plasticky when I took them out of the package. I thought it was just the sizing that exists on many new fabrics so I washed them in my front loader with like fabrics. It did mostly remove the plastic feel but then they felt rough,still stiff, and they had lighter areas on them, almost like wear lines, like they'd been washed multiple times. I had no desire to sleep on them so I sent them back and it cost me $*** for the return shipping label which was subtracted from my refund. I've decided that buying sheets online is maybe not the way to go.
I have been looking for percale sheets for a while now. They were either out of my budget range or not my style. These are the best sheets ever. They wash well they feel great and I will buy more of these. They come in nice colors too.
