This is a very nice sheet set. There is sublte detailing at the hem edge. Fabric quality is great. Can't go wrong with 800 thread count and for such a nice price. Color is as expected for ivory. Linen was a little darker than I'd hoped.
I am sorry to say that this purchase was one of the most disappointing that I have ever made. I did read the prior reviews before I made the purchase, but being an optimest, I decided to discount all of the negatives and give the sheets a try. The sheets looked lovely upon receipt, I couldn't wait to use them. I laundered them according to label instructions. When they came out of the dryer, they were much more wrinkled than I expected. Generally, I can smooth out most wrinkles by hand while sheets are still warm and they look pretty good. Not these, they continued to be wrinkled. I held them in one hand with another similar set of freshly laundered sheets and noticed that these weighed quite a bit less than the other set. I put them on my bed and they just didn't look as nice because of the wrinkles (I'm way too busy to begin ironing my sheets as I did in the old days). The worse part was sleeping on the sheets. They were really scratchey. Neither my husband nor I liked them. We continued to use them for five nights and each night they were just as scratchey and uncomfortable. I re-washed them and found that they did not get any softer. I decided not use them in my master bedroom, but would put them in one of my guest bedrooms. After further thought, I determined that I didn't want my guests to sleep on scratchey wrinkley sheets either. They are now in a bag to go to Good Will. Hopefully someone will be able to get some use out of them. Bottom line, the sheets were a total waste of money. Never again. Adpotate
I am so thrilled with these sheets, the price, quality, everything is perfect! I wanted some great "high thread count" sheets ever since Oprah started talking about she wanted sheets with at least a 600 thread count. I have been working my way up to that but now that I have found these, at such a great price, I will always buy sheets through Overstock.
I love these sheets. Not sure where you could find any other set of 800 count sheets for this price. The only thing I don't like about these sheets is the fact that they are very prone to wrinkling. Unless you iron your sheets, it will be something you will have to live with.
I have sheets of all thread counts, from 350 - 1200. I would rank this closer to a 400 thread count set. They don't have that luxurious heavy feel of higher thread count sheets, but they do have nice detailing and seem to be nice quality. Just not as high as I'd expected for the price.A note about the color. I ordered light blue, which in reality seems to be a light teal. Not what I expected but a nice color anyway.
LOVE IT!!Cotton, by its very nature, wrinkles. So that is no big deal. Even my husband, who does not notice such things, said they were nice. I always wash everything before I use it and I put them on the bed right from the dryer. They are nice and roomy. My last set of high priced sheets almost didn't fit my queen pillow top mattress. These are easy to put on and the pillow doesn't hang out the end of the pillow case. Beautiful color (Linen). Feels wonderful. Crisp and clean feeling. Wouldnt change a thing. I will be buying many more sets, for all the beds in my house.
I was told by a friend that overstock had great deals. I have learned that not only are the deals great but delivery is fast and inexpensive. I will recommend overstock to my friends and listening audience. The set I purchased more than met my expectations, the quality of the sheets are worth far more than I paid. And I will be buying more.
