Product is not "classic percale" - it is not crisp and wrinkle free. It is more like the old cheap muslin sheets. Scratchy and somewhat wrinkled. The pillow cases are so small they barely cover a standard pillow and have seams on both sides. The top sheet is oversized which is nice for keeping it tucked in. The bottom fitted sheet is good for thick mattresses. Do not buy this if you are looking for a crisp percale sheet.
I have been looking for a good quality percale sheet because I do not like Egyptian Cotton that wrinkle so badly and are too soft for my taste. These sheets are not what I thought. They are the cheaper version of percale. Coarse and not crisp nor slick. The color is too bright. I will have to continue to search for good quality percale sheets and take good care of the ones I have.
While the deep pockets (oversize)fits great on my pillowtop mattress the quality is poor. The percale is soft except for the areas where the weave defects are present. There are weave defects, that are eight and nine inches long, in the bottom sheet and one of the pillowcases. The color is much duller than the picture on the website. I will never again buy bedding online.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was duller than the picture
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. bottom sheet and one of the pillowcases each have an eight inch weave defect in them
I was looking for Percale sheets to help with the hot summer days, however the sheets were more stiff after washing than you would expect. Probably won't use them very often.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color was perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality was poorer than what I expected
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly accurate
after washing sheets in warm/cold water fitted sheet much much much to small to fit
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? okay
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. see below
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not accurate
Finally, I've found them. I like a crisp, smooth sheet. Not necessarily "soft" like flannel, but smooth. A friend's mom told me to look for percale sheets. It is the weave of the fibers that makes a difference. Not only the thread count. When you first open these, they will feel a bit stiff. Just wash and dry them, they relax and feel great on the bed. They remind me of the sheets we had when I was growing up, but have never been able to find in stores. This is the second set I've purchased from O.com and hope they continue to carry them.
These are the worst sheets that I have ever purchased! I thought , from the description, that these sheets were "classic percale"- the old-fashioned material that our mother's and grandmothers used to buy. Clearly, they are not! I'm very angry that this set has polyester content and not pure percale cotton as I had believed. Don't buy these sheets! After many, many washings and using fabric softener, these sheets are stiff, itchy and irritate my skin. They are UNCOMFORTABLE to sleep on, especially if you want the real classic percale cotton that has a soft, veer, very cool and almost satin-like old-fashioned sheet most of us grew up with as kids. I don't like this "marketing" ploy, Overstock. I know you are in business but you should have "polyester content" out there in large letters for people to see! People trust you and most people, like myself, just want to order and get sheets without having to look at minute details. Shame on you, Overstock, for taking advantage of buyer's lack of time today. I will think twice about ordering from O. Again, I' m so upset!
This sheet set is awful, and I have tried to soften it up almost 5 times and it still feels scratchy. This is not what percale should feel like, and I got a 2nd set (Lilac) and it is fine. WHAT is wrong with it? Plus their is a 1" area about 5" long where the machine didn't finish processing it. I am VERY disappointed in this set!!!!!
sheets were so incredibly rough it was actually very hard to sleep on them. i would recomend spending 5 dollars more and buying sheets from wal mart my better homes and garden sheets feel like egyptian cotton compared to these sheets. would not recomend.
Love the sheets! Very wide top sheet as promised and deep pockets on fitted sheet. They feel great to sleep in. Bought two sets and probably going to buy another set. Don't get hot like other sheets that I have bought. Definitely a winner in my opinion.
I have been searching for percale sheets and thought I had found them; however, these sheets were NOT percale. I washed them, thinking it would help soften them, put them on the bed, and within a week, there were pills. I would not recommend these to anyone!
I've used low thread count percale sheets in the past and loved them, but these are rough and cheap. The elastic around the fitted sheet makes it very difficult to actually get the sheet all the way around my over-sized mattress because it doesn't have enough give, even though the corners are deep enough. I thought I was going to break it. And there are spots on the sheets where the coloring is uneven. In 2 words: don't bother.
I thought the fabric would be soft, that it is suppose to be percale!. As of this date, I have not used on my bed. Fabric feels like canvas and I washed them with lots of fabric softner.Extremely disappointed. I know I will never use them. I wanted to return them, but information given said, not returnable. Regret the purchase!
So, I ordered the Paprika sheets to match a funky orange room I'm working on. Received sheets - color if really dull, expected it to be brighter (like in the picture), so I returned it. IT COST $13.23 TO SHIP THIS TO MY HOUSE AND BACK. Yes, like over 1/3 of the price of the item. Apparently, they charge you $2.95 for shipping if you keep it, but they charge you $7 each way if you decide to return. Since they go ahead and make that super clear in the return policy, I thought you should know before you lose your life savings too. Thanks - I'll be sure to go to *** next time!!
