I would not recommend these sheets to anyone who is use to sleeping on 400 or above thread count sheets and want/expect the same feel. They do not feel as comfortable as the ones I bought from *** which were also 400 thread count, and they definitely do not feel like Egyptian Cotton. In fact, I think that is a total fabrication.
I was very pleased to get these sheets and make up the bed. The color was exactly as expected and complimented the comforter set. The sheets are soft, yet have held up well in the wash. The stripes add a touch of elegance to the room. I am very pleased with this purchase.
I really like the feel of these sheets and the fit on our California King bed. I pre-washed the set before putting on the bed. They washed beautifully and were soft to the touch. The problem with these sheets is the COLOR: The SAGE GREEN color was not colorfast. Very disappointed. I have night sweats and it discolored the sheets first night on the pillowcase. Continued to use the sheets after one washing and more fading occurred on the bottom sheet in the shoulder area. I did not return them after these 2 washings, but may do so, as I really like the basic sheet fabric and they are an excellent value. I am sure if I had selected white or beige the fading would not have been a problem. ( I have had other green cotton items fade in spotty areas to yellow: towels and men's polo shirts.)
After the first wash, the sheets were not nearly as soft and shiny as when they were delivered. They have not started to pill yet, but it's only been a week. The "gold" color is actually a very bright yellow. I like the color but it does not match the picture.
I ordered these sheets as an extra birthday gift for my Grandmother. After she opened them, I put them in the wash and onto her bed. She says purple is her favorite color and it took a while to find ones I thought she would like. Success! She loves the color and satin stripes of the fabric. and says they feel very soft. I did have to search for extra matching pillowcases in a king size, but think they will go well with the sheet set.
I am a sheet snob as well and I like the expensive look and feel of these sheets! Most people don't know to wash ONLY the sheets in the wash, this cuts down or eliminates the pilling all together. I also put them on the bed right out of the washer, hit them with a bit of starch and smooth them out and let them dry on the bed. These are really nice sheets and I got them for my spare bed, white sheets and little girls do not mix. So I got the expensive look and feel for a really good price and would/have recommended them to my friends.

THESE SHEETS ARE AMAZING! WE'VE SPENT PLENTY OF MONEY ON THE 800 TO 1200 THREAD COUNT SHEETS AND THEY ARE A TRUE TREAT. HOWEVER WITH TODAY'S ECONOMY, WE CAN HARDLY TELL THAT THE 400 THREAD COUNT ARE MUCH DIFFERENT. HONESTLY, THEY ARE JUST AS NICE TO SLIDE INTO AFTER A LONG HARD DAY, AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ALL WHO LOVE A GREAT NIGHTS SLEEP! THE HEILMAN'S, COLORADO

Washes and drys well no heavy wrinkling. If your not to fussy you will have not problem putting them on the bed without ironing. Soft enough, I'm happy with them.

Well, they are soft and nice to sleep on. I don't think they are 400 thread count, seems more like 200. But the thing I really don't like is the washing instructions - to only wash in COLD water. I want to use warm or hot. I'm not used to washing sheets in cold water. I would not buy them again for that reason.
I purchased these sheets for my daughter's bed at our beach house, we are there a one or two weekends a month. Initially, I was happy with the sheets - the color is bright and did not fade after a couple washes. After two months or so, maybe four or five weekend visits, I noticed a seam on one of the pillow cases unraveling. I did not think much of it and had it repaired - in the next three months the second pillowcase needed to be re-sewn and the hem on the flat sheet unraveled and needed to be completely re-sewn. Needlework and thread on this product is very poor, my suggestion would be to avoid.
I love these sheets - I have 2 sets of different colors that I bought previously and they have help up great after about 2 or 3 years. LOVE them! I love the subtle stripe pattern that makes it easier to make the bed. The sheets are very soft, yet durable. They are good for both Summer and Winter, although I really like them for Summer as they are thin, but not too thin, and very soft. Did I mention the softness? They may wrinkle a bit right out of the dryer, but the wrinkes settle down after making the bed. Nothing but good words for these! I just might get a set in every color before I"m done!
I am constantly using Overstock and Amazon for most of my home and some other purchases. Once in a while "bad thing" happened: this time so called 2nd part of my order (above): "Egyptian Cotton 400 Thread Count Stripe Sheet Set Queen / Gold" - FITTED SHEET after just 1st laundry (I have high end new Washer and use for variety of expensive and delicate items) fell apart, mostly around stitched corners where blue label "Impressions" by Home City, Inc. RN # 109808. All set looks terrible, very "shrunk" and absolutely non-usable. Sorry to say all my bedding in the past from you and Amazon were good quality and lasted for years. Hope, You can take care about this issue, I know its open and probably out of warranty, but your Co. name and reputation worth substantially more. Thank You Val
