Of all the purchases made at the O, this is perhaps the most disappointing. The quality of the cotton is good; however, the seams in the pillowcases opened after the first washing. Since this is the only time this happened with an O purchase, it could have been an abberation in this set. Of course, the O staff was more than accomodating. Even though the style and pattern are classics, I'm just not sure if I would recommend this set to anyone. To this point, I am still a loyal Overstock.com shopper.
This is the 2nd set of sheets I have purchased from Overstock recently that was supposedly high quality that pilled up within a week. The first set, I had to make a special arrangements to get permission to send them back because they won't take back anything opened. Obviously, you can't tell the quality of sheets without using them. Well this set did the same thing and I am just going to keep them and use them for the dog's bed (and I don't mean that in a bad way. The dogs like them!). In the past, I have gotten really good quality sheets from overstock, but I think I am done purchasing sheets from them now. Just too expensive to have them be unusable.
These sheets look nice on the twin beds in our guest room. They are not of the quality of other, higher thread count (and more expensive) sheets we have bought, but we didn't expect them to be. But for what will be fairly limited use in our house, they're attractive and perfectly adequate.
Really like this sheet set. Probably wouldn't have paid the price that was marked on the package the sheets were sold in, lucky for me this is overstock and got the item for much cheaper. The sheets are sturdy, soft and just the right weight to keep you warm at night but not make you sweat. Might pick up another set for guests.
Sadly, these sheets look much better than they are. When I received them, I noticed one pillow case was made of a different fabric than the rest of the sheet set (perhaps a freak mistake at the factory?). It also had some strange stitching. Overstock gave me a discount on the order when I called about that. After 1 wash, they now have a hole in one corner and the thread is about to give out in a couple other places. Very disappointing.
After the first laundering, the wide seam at the top opened because it had not been folded and sewn properly. I had to sew this back together. After a few washings, the bottom sheet in particular is pilling badly and feels very rough. All in all, not a good buy.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor construction and pilling
