This set is poor quality. When they arrived I thought they were a little rough for 400 thread count, but figured like others they would get softer with washing, but now, after just 4 washes they have started to pill (making annoying balls usually caused by bad blends of cotton)! It's too late for me to return them, so I'm using this to warn others, save your money and buy sheets somewhere else!!!
I am not typically the kind of person that jumps online to review everything I buy, but these sheets were so awful that I felt compelled to say something to hopefully spare others from a horrible night's sleep. I purchased these sheets after reading the reviews, and while there were some negative ones, I thought there was enough positive to out weigh that. Being made from Egyptian cotton with a decent thread count, I figured they had to be soft. When I pulled these sheets out of the package yesterday they seemed pretty nice. I threw them in the washer and dryer and that's when things turned bad! First, I pulled them out of the dryer when they were warm hoping they would be decently wrinkle-free...nope! They were so wrinkled that they looked like someone rolled them up in a ball when they were wet and left them like that to dry. I couldn't even iron the wrinkles out of the pillowcases they were that bad! Not the kind of presentation I want to leave on my bed. Then for the really bad part...I crawled into bed last night and these sheets were so itchy that I had to get up in the middle of the night and put my old sheets back on my bed. Never in my life have I had to do such a thing! First I got up and changed the pillowcase, thinking maybe if I got the scratchiness away from my face I could actually fall asleep. Then after another hour of tossing and turning in scratchy hell, I finally got up and replaced the sheets as well and naturally, fell right asleep. Please save yourself the money and do not buy these sheets!!

These sheets are a beautiful color, and shiny, I got the taupe color and it is very rich and pretty.. until they are washed a few times and mine started getting pillings really quick. I would only recommend if you don't mind the feeling that you are sleeping in a gritty bed.
I was leery to buy these sheets at first because the first two reviews I saw rated them poor, but then I read on in the reviews. The rest of the reviews were very pleased to rave so I took a chance - and I am THRILLED I did. These are 400ct Egyptian cotton sheets and that is what I expected. I think the other reviewers expected 400ct. to feel like 800 or 1000ct. These are good quality and I experienced no 'pilling' even after 4 washes. I waited to write this review until after several washings ( I was suspect of the poor reviewer because high thread count sheets do not pil - the weave is way to tight to allow it. I have had blankets pil before but never sheets). The color is rich, deep and vibrant. I bought the Hunter green and am back to order another set. The color has not faded. I wash in cold water and dry on low heat. Very pleased with the price and the quality. I do not hesitate to recommend these. Exactly as I expected 400ct. sheets to be; Medium weight, tight weave,they get softer after each wash, no fading in color. These will last many, many years.

When I moved into my new apartment, I was *obsessed* with having gray sheets with a dark blue comforter, I searched everywhere for gray sheets but anytime I found them, they were either sold out of queen size or ridiculously overpriced. These sheets are EXACTLY what I was looking for, a simple, slate gray sheet that is reasonably priced, but not so cheap it's like sleeping on sand paper. These sheets are comparable to what you would find at a nicer hotel- they are somewhat thick and are very nice to sleep on. I highly recommend this sheet to anyone who wants good quality bedding that won't break their bank account!

I bought these sheets to replace some 425 thread count that I bought at Overstock that were wonderful. I have a CAL King bed so I can not go to any of the local stores and pickup a set of sheets. Washed the sheets on arrival and put them on the bed they seen to be a little thinner than my 425 thread count sheets but they are smooth and soft and much better than the last set that I bought at Overstock. They are made in India which I have discovered makes some good textiles. Indian made sheets seem to be much better than the ones made in China. We liked the sheets so well that after a month or so we ordered a second set just as a backup we usually just wash them and put them back on and so far we have had no problems. We have a 13 inch mattress and they fit well but I don't think that they would fit a mattress much thicker.
The package was a couple of days late from the estimated delivery date, but it was worth the wait. I washed the sheets first, they held their maroon color. They are very smooth and elegant. They have deep pockets, as stated, and fit my mattress well. When these sheets are on the bed I love getting into bed. Every time I get into bed I notice how wonderful these sheets feel. They are not particularly thick, but they feel like butter. I recommend them!
I have had Egyptian Cotton sheets for years now and these were the worst ever. Don't Do it ! Go to XXXXXX and buy their ultra soft cotton 300tc sheets they are very nice. If you buy any sheets from Overstock and have to return them they will charge you for it. Don't do it !
These sheets were thick and fairly soft. We have had them for two years and they are unusable now. They tore up quicker than any other sheets I've had. They just wore out and started getting holes. Here to look for a new sheet set and thought I'd warn potential buyers.
Bought these for our son's new queen size bed. My wife took them out of the package and noticed that the stitching was coming apart. Never even made it to the washing machine. We usually buy the Kirkland brand sheets from Costco (550 thread count) and the extra thread count seems to make a difference in the quality as we also felt that the material was not a good quality either.
I bought the gray/silver sheets for my son. They have been washed two times thus far and I am happy with the way they come out of the dryer. I do not see any piling and they have minimal wrinkling. My son likes how soft and comfortable they are. I would buy these again.
