These were purchased (2 sets) for a rarely used condo property. After rare usage and few washings, the fabric has pilled up in the positions of where a body would lie. Disappointed and in the process of replacing as I'm embarrassed by them.
This set has only been washed twice and still seems to have great color, altho the sheen has softened. I think this may be a type that softens with time. They wash up well, feel great, will purchase again once I determine how they take wear.
I ordered the deep purple color. The color itself is very rich & the design is quite lovely. However, I do not recommend them for year-round as I have discovered them to be very hot & uncomfortable during the Summer time. I am certain they will be perfect for Fall/Winter.
After 6 years, one of our two pairs of king sized sheets finally got a rip in them, in the fitted sheet. It was time to replace. Having purchased our initial two pairs from Overstock, I returned. I have to admit, I couldn't recall the brand and rather than go find it on our other still-fine sheets set, I chose these sheets for the thread count and large number of good reviews, which seemed like good criteria. I was away when they arrived and first saw them after my husband washed them and put them on the bed (early July). Immediately I could tell they were thinner than our other sheets and thinner than what I'd expected. I guess thread count doesn't also relate to thicker fibers. (I should have remembered this- I bought a twin set for my daughter many years ago, supposedly 1000 thread count, and they are rather thin, but they're still hanging in there, surprisingly). After less than a week, some of the threads at the top where the finished hem is were already coming loose. I highly doubt these sheets will last even half as long as our others. Disappointing, because even if they do last a while, the thin feel is just not as satisfying. I don't want to return them- probably possible but more difficult once washed- but mostly because I'd like to see how long they do last. Lesson learned- take the time to find out what brand/model worked well and buy the same or similar.
