I am disappointed with the color and quality of these pillow cases, but am going to use them in a spare bedroom since I have already laundered them. The color is chartreuse and I was hoping they were a sage green. I would not recommend them for the master bedroom, they aren't nice enough in my opinion.
Overstock Quality Control department missed this item. No way is it 233 TC. Very thin fabric. White stitching on milky brown. Website stated standard/dark chocolate. Applied for RMA, but was advised that there would be an $$$ charge to return. As the original cost was $$$, it wasn't worth the effort to send back. Instead, donated them to local charity as the items were not used.
I understood these were a low thread count, but they looked pretty decent once I took them out of the plastic. Once I washed them, that was done...they looked quite bleak after that first wash. They are good for what we need them for, but I wouldn't reccommend these if you were ever trying to impress.
I ordered 2 sets of 2 king size pillow cases and received 3 king and 1 standard size pillow cases. As much as the pillow cases are very soft, the dye lots are very different. There are probably 3 different brown colours in 4 pillow cases. Now I need to deal with a return ... ugh.
You get what you pay for right? Although I think these pillow cases will hold up well (they seem sturdy enough) there are several things not quite right about them. First of all, I ordered "standard" sized cased for my "standard" sized pillows. They are clearly KING sized. Perhaps they just thought bigger was always better and went with it. It makes for about a foot and a half of extra material hanging off the edge of either pillow. Also, the material is quite rough. Scratchy even. Luckily we have other pillows with soft/smooth cases that we use to actually sleep on and these are more for decorative purposes and "loft"- but I wouldn't like to sleep on them. However, for the price and what I needed, they worked... ok. And that's about it.
these were bought for a teens room. Work great if you arent looking for that high thread count - we werent as it is a teen boy. Just needed some pillowcases. They wash up well and seem to be holding up great. Perfect for what they were purchased for.
These pillow cases feel great and I really like them....the only problem was when they said they were for large pillows, I never realized you could fit them over a boat! My girlfriend had to cut them off and sew them for regulation size pillows. I would still recommend them though!!
I bought this pillowcase set knowing that they were low thread count. If your purpose is just to cover a pillow - look no further. I actually bought these for a bassinet that has a very odd size mattress. They fit perfectly and will definitely wear well. The price was WELL below any other king size pillow case which was my first thought in buying them.
Well made, color is true. These are a heavier fabric than most pillowcases and do come out of the dryer wrinked (even with a fabric sheet). Since I fold them right away, this is not a problem for me but may be for someone else. I would purchase again.
These pillowcases are a good price and wash well. They are well made and fit well. The interesting thing about them is that they stay "crisp." By that I mean...well, you know how sometimes fabric right out of the package is a little stiff? Usually this is because of a starch-like product that is added to the material in order for it to travel well and look good in and just out of the package. The product usually washes off in the washing machine in the very first wash. Well, these pillow cases can be washed and washed and washed - and the fabric remains firm. It doesn't exactly crinkle when you sleep, but it never gets soft and pliable like you would expect a pillowcase to be. It kind of reminds me of the very old-fashioned blue jeans that needed a very, very long time to become soft and broken-in. Those old jeans lasted forever and a day! I hope that is true of these pillow cases too.
I bought these pillowcases because I was looking for pink pillowcases to match my daughters sheets on her toddler bed. I am happy with the color but disappointed at the quality. Although I didn't expect them to be of superior quality, I expected them to feel softer. I will not be buying these pillowcases again in the future.
