If you really want luxury, then think ancient Egypt, as in an Egyptian sheet set. Egyptian cotton is known to be luxurious, and this 650-thread count is made from that high-quality cotton. It also features pintucked hems and a sateen finish....more

I bought the Cal King size sheet and it fit wonderfully onto my 15" mattress. No problem with meeting the depth required. I however thought that these sheets would be softer than they are. With 650 thread count these sheets are solid and well made, but they feel a bit scratchy and they come out of the wash a wrinkled mess. I later purchased a set of 450 thread count sateen sheets that have a much softer feel.
We are spoiled by our Italian made top quality Egyptian high count sheets. The type that retail for $600-$900 per set or on sale for $300+ if you get lucky. We changed our king size bed to an adjustable king (2 XL twin mattresses) so I ordered these hoping for a decent fitted bottom sheet. Trust me, if you are used to top quality Egyptian cotton these "650" count will feel like cardboard by comparison. They were softer to the touch when I opened the pack, then I washed them before making the bed. Which meant it was too late to return them for a refund. I tried washing them 3 more times hoping to soften them up. No such luck. They fit the mattresses perfectly (XL Twin) UNTIL you raise the top or bottom to an elevated position which is the whole point of having an adjustable bed. And the sheets still feel scratchy compared to our old sheets.
I cannot recommend these to folks who have an adjustable bed (the fitted bottom snaps off when the bed is raised) or people who are spoiled like we are. I only tried these because I have not found any top quality sheets from Italy that are made for the adjustable king size bed (with two XL twin mattresses). Currently I am waiting for the sheets I ordered from “*****” a company that specializes in adjustable bed sheeting. I've learned my lesson - do not order sheets online for an adjustable bed. And don't believe that all sheets that are made of Egyptian cotton and have a high thread count are the same. They aren't. I already knew that you get what you pay for so I blame myself for wasting the money not Overstock.com.
Felt the need the leave a review after sorting through countless contradictory posts about not only these, but all the bedding on here in general. Yes, everybody has different tastes about their sleep preferences, but let me give a neutral review. They are definitely not "like sleeping on burlap." They are very smooth and crisp, although like all other cotton sheets they get a little softer after each wash. They are pretty lightweight, you can see light through them if held up to one. Unless you are sleeping without a blanket though, this shouldn't be a problem and is actually pretty great on those hot summer nights when you kick your heavy comforter off and just have these. I happen to love these sheets because of the crisp feel, but if you're looking for something more akin to a blanket, heavy and velvety soft, then these are not for you. But the cool, crisp and smooth feel makes me never want to get out of bed in the morning! Not to mention I got them in king size for less than $100, which is an amazing price for this great set of sheets.
I would have to say these are the best sheets I have purchased. They are extremely well made and the texture is like sateen, but not cold or hot. Great proportions for those with deep matresses. Highly recommend this product and I will buy these sheets in another color.
The description states these sheets fit up to an 18" mattress. Ours is 16" and I can barely get the fitted sheet on. The flat sheet cannot be tucked in on the sides, either. The one redeeming factor is that they feel great, very soft.
Bought this sheet set at least 6 months ago, and they are holding up great! Still soft and keeping their color. A little stiff at first, but softened with washing. No pilling. I was a little worried about being made in China, but they have exceeded my expectations. Still very happy with my purchase.

I have a sleep number bed that is 2 twins put together but the length is 88 in . what sheet size do you recommend?lois33 on Jul 14, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Lois33, I hope your day is going really well. The only thing that would work is two fitted twins and a California King flat sheet to put over the two twins. We do have item 13855987 that would work for the flat sheet. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 16, 2014
The colours on the page where they are named are quite different from the last picture of the sheet selections. The blue, called medium blue (quite dark) in the first picture, is much lighter in both the last picture, and the swatch, which seem to match the last picture. In the last picture I can't tell which colour is beige, and which is taupe. Is the first or last picture a truer example of the colours?therockchick on Mar 25, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

What in te world does "Fitted sheet pocket depth: 15-inches (fits mattresses up to 18 inches thick)" mean? If a pocket is 15" then it cannot physically fit anything that is larger than 15". What does all this mean in laymens terms?peacefulkancer on Feb 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This means that if your mattress if 15 inchs deep, it should fit fine but with a little extra looseness. On An 18-in mattress,it will have a very snug fit and be tight at the corners.smsaund on Feb 18, 2014

Some reviews indicate the sheets are made in India, while others indicate they are made in China. It's very important to me to know the difference. Where were the sheet sets made?moonchyld1 on Mar 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
