LOVE the sheets!! I never had a thread count this high - I have been watching all reviews and decided to "go for it!!" Glad I did! These sheets are heavy (not in warmth but in texture) and feel wonderful...and I can't believe how fast I got them!!
These are the most luxurious sheets we have ever slept on. They are well worth the price. You do have to wash on cold, delicate cycle and tumble dry low, which takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry completely. Aside from that we love them. With our king size bed being almost square, 76 x 80, the stripes are quite handy with knowing which side is up. They are very heavy so if you are looking for something light, this is not it! They do wrinkle but if you take them out whilst still warm and fold them or put them on the bed, it minimizes this. But really people, these are sheets, they go under blankets and you don't see them unless you are in them so who the heck cares if they wrinkle a little? Bottom line is that we are now spoiled and will never be able to drop back down to our old 250 tc sheets.
I too was reluctant to believe the thread count but... WOW! Heavy duty and excellent quality. Much heavier than any sheet we've ever bought - and we thought ourselves sheet snobs. Good value too. They will of course get softer with every wash; normal for any sheet.
At first I felt guilty about purchasing a luxury sheet set. After sleeping on these sheets for about a month, there is not more guilt. They are very soft and comfortable and improve with every wash. These sheets are well worth the price.
I washed the sheets 6 times before using them, but they were still quite stiff. The softness evidently comes with age and use. They're a bit heavier than I thought they would be even with a warning from one reviewer, but my husband, who didn't think we needed new sheets, loves them. They are quite luxurious, and the stripe adds to the ambiance. I'd recommend them.
The sheets are wonderful! They are a bit stiff, which i like because the bed doesnt look wrinkled in the morning. When you get into bed though they are incredibly soft. I love them and recomend them to all. I also bought a set for my mother.
I was so excited to receive my sheets as soon as I ordered them! When they arrived, I couldn't believe how thick they were! These sheets will last FOREVER...I immediately washed them and put them on my bed...they feel so warm, thick, luxurious...not so soft yet, but that is ok. I bought the gold and taupe queen sized sheet sets....I love them and recommend them to anyone. Don't expect them to be super soft beause of the high thread count, they need to be washed a few times, but they are well worth the money, I will have them for a lifetime, I am sure of it!
These sheets arrived in less than 2 weeks, very prompt. They came in a thick plastic zippered bag with an attractive picture of the set displayed through the plastic, well presented. Since they were a wedding gift I did not remove them entirely from the package however I did open it enough to feel them. Very thick and soft, lovely sheets, wish I could have kept them for myself. The recipients were very pleased with them. Would definitely order from this site again.
I HAVE BEEN TOLD AFTER 4-5 WASHINGS THE 100 PERCENT EGYPTIAN COTTON SHEETS WILL BE EXTREMELY SOFT AND FABULOUS. AFTER 4 WASHINGS MINE ARE NOT BUT I AM HOPEFUL. ALSO...AFTER TUCKING THE FLAT SHEET UNDER MY THICK MATTRESS I WOULD HAVE LIKED 6 TO 9 INCHES MORE FABRIC FOR FOLDING OVER AT THE TOP OF THE BED. DON'T GET ME WRONG....THEY ARE NICE BUT I EXPECTED MORE.
We purchased these sheets and have been very satisfied with the quality. The sheets are generously sized and very comfortable. My husbands swears he's sleeping better because of our new sheets. They are slightly heavier than some sheets but we actually like the weight. These sheets remind us of sheets found at expensive resorts we've stayed at. We would recommend these sheets to our friends. They are a good value for the money.
I had purchased sheets like this from overstock.com several years ago. Those have held up wonderfully and so when it was time to purchase sheets for our cabin I came back to O. The sheets just get better with age. The more they are washed, the softer they become.
To those of you who don't like the "stiff" feel of these, stick to the lower TC, but even the much lower TC are stiff too in the beginning. The higher the TC, the heavier they are. I have used the 1000, and 1200 TC sheets for many years and just got the 1500 and love them. I have the Cal King size, so they are larger then most but I get them in my front loader machine without a problem. As for the complaint about the wrinkles, take them out immediately from the drier or when they are a little damp and fold them. Anything of quality will prove its worth over time. The only reason I was replacing my 1200 TC was the elastic has stretched out from use (about 8 years worth). I am looking forward to getting a second set of these in the near future. Not much else to say but LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM!!!
We usually buy 1000 count sheets & we love them, but we found these 1500 count sheets for about the same price & excellent quality!!!! Everyone says thay last forever. I am very satisfied. Need 1 or 2 more set's for wash days or other bedrooms.
i'm buying more. they are awesome. expect them to be thick and heavy... they are 1500 thread count, after all, so they are like three sheets in one. they are washing well, getting softer every time. i can't see how i could ever go back to my old 400 thread count! i will get old and grey by these sheets's side!!
These sheets are the ultimate in luxury. I washed them twice before I used them, then ran a light iron over them. I have had the 1000, 1200 thread counts before, but these 1500 thread counts make you feel like your sleeping on a cloud. With the great discounts from Overstock, I feel like Christmas came early! I highly recommend these sheets to everyone! Once you sleep on sheets like this, then you try a 500 thread count sheet - you will know what you have been missing. Get these for people you really like, or for those that you are in love with!
These sheets ae amazing . They are wonderfully priced( i've seen these same sheets at other websites for $300!) and are high quality. They are a little hard at first, but after 3 to 4 washes they soften up. I ordered taupe, which is a beautifully rich and deep color. They are very Thick and Heavy, which is very nice. Don't be fooded by other reviews, these sheets are a great buy.
If you like really stiff sheets that won't cling to your body like a wet towel, these are the sheets for you. These sheets are so stiff that they act like a pup tent on your bed. The air circulates all around you while you sleep. They have just the right amount of weight to replace a blanket, but won't make you hot like a blaket. The downside of all that stiffness is that you can wash or dry only one sheet at a time. When they come out of the dryer, they look wrinkled because they are too stiff to tumble in the dryer. If I could do it again, I would buy a sheet with a lower thead count - maybe 1200.
