These sheets are heavy quality and stand up to lots of abuse in the washing machine and dryer. They are a bit stiff at first but after a few washings have become extremely comfortable. We are very pleased with these sheets - we have ordered softer 1200 thread count and they pilled up within the first few washings, making them uncomfortable to sleep on. Good value, great texture!
If you love to iron, then these are the sheets for you. Took forever to dry in the dryer and always came out extremely wrinkled. Plus, they began to tear at the corners on the fitted sheet, they say the sheets have a 17 inch depth, our mattress is 12-13 inches deep but you really had use a lot of muscle to put the sheet on. They are very comfortable, but I would not reccomend to anyone.
When I was a child my grandmother ironed her sheets and I never understood why would you do that. These sheets explain it all. High thread count sheets need to be ironed and all sheets used to be good quality. Now you can buy 200 thread count permanent press sheets that come out of the dryer ready to use. I have owned these particular sheets for four years and they are great. They are durable to biweekly washing and have held their color and shape. They could stand to be ironed but I don't I just put them on as is. I have found them to be durable, comfortable and of very high quality realitive to other sheet sets I have purchased. After four years they are now starting to show wear but no holes or rips or tears just wear from use. I am about to purchase another set right now.

I was very disappointed in these sheets. I never spent this much money on sheets and really was expecting a luxurious treat. They are very wrinkled coming out of the dryer. My main complaint is that the fitted sheet does not fit - at all. Very frustrating and back-breaking! Pillowcases are skimpy. I would not recommend them to anyone.

After few washings the corner seems on the fitted sheet all split, rendering the sheets useless. These were expensive sheets (even at Overstock's price) to have them last such a short time. Disappointed.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? The cotton fabric is indeed thick

I bought the Egyptian Cotton 1200 Thread Count Stripe Sheet Set thinking that these sheets would be super soft like the other Egyptian cotton sheets that I have slept on. This is not the case. These sheets feel like any other normal sheets to me, excpet they feel a little thicker. Maybe I need a better understanding of what Egyptian cotton really is because these are not as soft as I expected. Next time I'll be sure to feel the fabric at a specialty store, such as ********* and then check Overstock to see if they carry the same type. Overall, I'm sure these are good sheets, but I was expecting something different. I would have guessed that these had come from ***** if I didn't know where they were purchased.
I purchased these sheets after looking in department stores and finding much higher prices and lower thread counts in discount chains. I really liked the color, price, and high thread count. The color we purchased was in taupe and coordinated with our brown/gold bedding. The sheets are very thick and have held up through washes well. The reason for the 4 star rating is due to the average softness of the sheets. I was expecting the sheets to be so much softer since the thread count was so high. Overall, good product for the price. I would buy again.
I have a set of 800 count Egyptian cotton sheets and they're super soft so for mother's day I figured I'd buy 1200 count for my mom but I don't know if it's the stripes that make the sheets feel rougher. These sheets feel just as soft (not softer) than my 800 count smooth sheets.
These sheets are very luxe and fabulous. They are heavy, to be expected for the thread count, and I keep lighter thread count sheets around for the summer. They are a bit stiff at first, as other reviews state, but I actually delight in the heaviness of the feel ? it is luxurious and they soften with each wash. My only slight disappointment is that for ?ivory? they are a bit yellow ? not a true ivory. But the price is fantastic. I recommend them.
These sheets are literally the best deal I have been able to find. The sheets are very soft after washed and hold their color very well. My mattress is an 10 inch memory foam and the sheets fit comfortably. Overall this is a wonderful deal you shouldn't pass.
