i bought these along with a 500 tc sheet set to make a comparison & there is definetly a difference. these are much thicker .. i like these for my extre pillows on my bed and feel like they are well made, they don't start out as soft as the 500 tc cotton, but again appear to be durableand are getting softer with each washing. i am happy with this item
I ordered these pillow cases to match the 1000 TC striped sheets that these were recommended with. What I got was a huge disappointment. The pillowsheets looked worn, faded and didn't match the sheets I bought in the first place. I am just glad that I didn't order two sets to go with the six pillows on my bed. I would have sent them back but it would cost about a third of the cost of the pillowcases themselves. They also are not of the same type of material. The pillowcases are not as heavy as the sheets and wrinkle more than the sheets themselves which makes me believe that they are not 1000 TC that the description says that they are. This was a huge disappointment for me.

I bought these sheets and they're te best! I usually use 700 - 800 count, but I wanted to try de 1000 count ones. I ordered a queen set plus 2 king pillow cases. The quality is amazing, the sheets are really soft and the best part: they neither wrinkle nor shrink in the washing/drying process. As always with Overstock, the delivery was fast and the packing great. The price was very good too. If you are looking to sleep like a baby these are te perfect sheets!

Buy them with the sheets that match. This is my second set and even though the set I bought years ago is still in wonderful shape, I was afraid that they would be discontinued in the future so now I have an extra set for years to come!!!
This was highly rated here, so I ordered. I'm still waiting to see if it was all hype. Seems to be made of durable material: I ordered the gold sheet set and an extra pair of pillow cases. I have only had it for a month, have washed it twice, and still waiting for the "softness" that the other reviewers are saying will happen when you have used and washed it a few times. Current condition after 2 washes: still a little stiff and crumply even right out of the dryer. Pillow cases will only fit standard - barely cover queen size pillows. Will update my rating if/when it does get better with use.
I don't know where they got the 1000 thread count or the 'Egyptian cotton' from, but this is the same ripoff they have at the flea market and other places. The sheets have a silky feel, not at all the thick dense feel of a clothe with over 800 thread count.. Please don't buy this and expect a nice thick luxurious set of sheets
