have purchased 1000 ct egyptian cotton sheets from overstock in the past and am disappointed in this set. these sheets were more like 400 to perhaps 600 ct in softness and thickness. in addition i found them to be somewhat skimpy in size. i would not buy them again nor recommend them to others.
These are the scratchiest 1000-thread counts I've ever encountered, which I presume is why the price is so reasonable. I expect these will soften with use but I still would have preferred a softer texture from the start, as is achieved by other high-thread-count sheets. Pros: deep fitted pocket fits my sleep number mattress + 4 inch memory foam topper. The color I ordered (stone/taupe) is beautiful. Cons: unpleasant texture
As the title implies, I've been buying high thread-count sheets for years now. When you first buy a pair of high thread-count sheets, sure, they're heavy, but they shouldn't be overly stiff as these sheets are. And with washing, they get softer over time. I have sheets from about 6 years ago, that, while they are getting a bit worn now, are probably the softest sheets ever, and they were like that when I took them out of the package. These are probably a double ply sheet. They're very stiff and yes, heavy, but it's like wearing a canvas blanket. I've had them for about six months now and they haven't really softened up at all, like I hoped they would. I don't know who you're trying to fool, Overstock, but it isn't me. You used to have great sheets, but not anymore. These are cast-offs.
The color of the sheets is lovely but the quality is very poor. I have washed them many times and while the sheets themselves don't seem to pill, they literally shed onto everything, i.e., mattress pad, blankets, quilt, nightgown and carpet. The seams in the pillow cases started coming apart after one wash.
The word santeen conjures up images of satin and silk and softness...not scratchiness, which these sheet are. I've had them close to a year now and through several washes and they have not softend one bit. I won't go so far as to say they feel like cardboard. They are a bit heavy, so I only sleep on them during the fall/winter season. The photo makes them look shiny, but they are not shiny at all. However, they are a nice chocolate color. I have sheets with lower thread count that feel silkier than these. These sheets aren't awful, but they do not live up to their reputation.

I purchased these sheets for my new king size bed and wasn't apprehensive about ordering from Overstock because in the past I've never had a bad experience. These sheets are terrible in quality. My husband put them through the wash one time and the pillow cases started falling apart and the seams. I returned them right away and got a full refund.

I love these sheets, They are supremely thick and soft and beautiful, and are lovely to slide into! The warnings from others that they are scratchy at first are quite true, and I would say maybe 6 washings to feel really silky, but now I have incredibly thick and soft sheets that should last forever! I will order more in another color!

Some time ago I bought a set of 1000 TC sheets for my King bed from Overstock and they were wonderful, a few washings to to remove the manufacturing chemicals and they began to fluff to heavenly softness. This set, I'm sad to say is a different story. It's been several months and many, many, many, many washings and these sheets just get worse. I'am very close to reverting back to the 600TC set I bought from Wal-Mart because they are much softer than this 1000 TC set. I will update this review if the sheets start to improve.
Was wanting that upscale boutique luxury hotel feel for the master bedroom and these helped complete the effort. Beautiful contemporary colors, simple tasteful design. Soft and luxurious, they are a pleasure to snuggle into each night. I am sure there are "better" sheets out there, but these fit our budget and are worth every penny. Also hard to find good deep pocket sheets to fit thicker pillow top mattresses, but these fitted sheets stay put.
You will feel like a millionaire when you sleep on 1000 count sheets. I would not have believed there was such a difference. These sheets are very silky soft yet so thick.and heavy..They are very deep and stay on the bed corners and they don't get all those little balls called pile that feel like sand. I will never waste my money on cheap sheets again when you can 1000 count at O. for less than a hundred dollars.
I have bought 1000 TC Sheets from Overstock before and 7 years later I am still LOVING them. These sheets are nothing like what I bought before. The other negative reviews stating that these sheets are scratchy are accurate. After one wash a small tear and they look like they are well on their way to pilling. I read only one other review that said they pilled. I wished I listened to the negative reviews and didn't order these. These sheets are heavy and seemed like good quality sheets right out of the package, but once you put them on the bed and slip into them you can feel that they are not high quality at all. Disappointed.

I have a Cal King bed with a pillow top mattress. Many of the sheet sets I've purchased in the past don't quite fit the bed. The top sheet usually is too short on all sides and the fitted sheet won't completely cover the mattress.These sheets meet that criteria. They fit like a dream and are made of a heavyweight cotton sateen that feels and looks beautiful when my bed is made. I would definitely purchase these again.
I ordered 2 sets of these sheets. I received them yesterday, I couldn't wait to get them washed and put on my bed. Good thing I only opened 1 set. I'm very disappointed, I have 800 tc that are better quality. I will be sending the one I didn't open back. I wish overstock would refund your full price on stuff you are not pleased with. once you open it you are kinda stuck. Either you keep it or take less than what you paid. For that reason I have not been ordering as much as I used to. It's a hassle to send stuff back and not get a full refund.
