These sheets are AMAZING! A lot of people just don't get how different percale is from sateen - yes, sateen is soft but when you sleep on percale sheets , you will NEVER go back! The cool, crisp, yet silky softness of percale is unsurpassed! The other wonderful thing about these sheets is that they are generous! Fitted hseet fits that stupid deep mattress that the mattress manufacturers are insisting on making and the top sheet has a wonderfully generous hang on each side! The sheet manufactures need to get this! My other sheets have a 3 in hang which is ridiculous - these sheets have plenty of hang and I ove it! But the silky cool crisp softness is the best! TREAT YOURSELF!!!!!
I had no idea how difficult it would be to replace my nice, thick percale sheet set. After reading numerous reviews, I thought this would be what I'd like. Just picking up the package when it was delivered, I was nervous, it was so light weighted. Opening the package my concern was confirmed. Thin and felt just like a sateen. Going to continue to look for a good, quality percale. Disappointing.
For me, percale sheets just can't be beat. I bought the Egyptian Cotton 450 count and they're heavenly to sheep in. They're crisp, fresh feeling can't be beat. They laundry very nicely and fit perfectly on my thick mattress. I'll br buying more soon.
I purchased these sheets in June and have used them and washed/dried them over 3 months. They are as stiff and scratchy as cardboard! I have several sets of Egyptian Cotton high-count percale sheets (not from Overstock), and they are soft and comfortable. My husband begs me NOT to use these sheets -- he hates them that much! I truly do not believe they are Egyptian cotton -- they feel like some sort of weird, hard, synthetic fiber.
The best fitting sheets I have ever bought. The fitted sheet covers a thick mattress with plenty to wrap under the mattress itself so the sheet does not work its way off the corners of the mattress. The flat sheet is wider than most, covering to the bottom of the mattress. They are crisp and cool, exactly as described. A great buy at any price. I will be buying more.
It's hard to find a good percale sheet set that's inexpensive. These are great. Very "cool" to the touch. Not all that stylish, just a plain sheet, but wonderful to sleep on when it's warm outside...like climbing into a crisp bed at a fine hotel. They came on time, and as promised. Highly recommend for the money...or go spend $$$$$ on a set at ****.
I have an awfully hard time finding sheets that fit my very deep mattress. Even many extra deep pocket sheets do not fit. This fitted sheet fits wonderfully, with room to spare so taht I was able to put my feather bed beneath it. The sheets have a good feel to them and look good. I am thrilled with them on all accounts.
After receiving these sheets, i washed them in cold water - and was ASTONISHED when i removed them from the washer. They looked AND FELT exactly like how a PLASTIC shower curtain looks and feels when you wash it in the washer. THEY Were HARD and actually CRINKELED as i put them in the dryer HOPING that they would soften and be NORMAL --- but even though they did soften SOME, the sheets are so NOISY, that i only put the bottom sheet on the bed BECAUSE I NEEDED A BOTTOM SHEET. It sounded like you were on plastic every time you move....I am 56 years old and have NEVER seen anything like this...... were on Gods earth did you get manufacture this material !!! and what the ____ is it??? DON"T BUY THIS its not of this world.....
These sheets are the perfect combination of weight and crispness and feel absolutely wonderful. Unlike the current trend towards sateen, these sheets are more substantial and have that "old world" feeling I remember from sleeping in the beds at my German grandmother's house. Cool - but a bit weightier than most - with a crisp, smooth finish. The fitted sheets are particularly well made. The elastic around the bottom is wider than average and grabs the mattress much more securely than other fitted sheets. Love, love, love these sheets!
I'm very impressed with these sheets. I buy the California king with extra deep pockets for my old fashioned waterbed and sometimes, with other brands, the corners don't stay on the water mattress very well. These have a very wide elastic band all around the fitted sheet like I have never seen before and these sheets are definitely staying on the water mattress. Another detail I like is the pleated detail on the turn down portion of the top sheet. Adds a touch of elegance. I also bought a queen size set for my guest bed and I'm glad I did. I like knowing my guests are sleeping on high quality sheets. They are thick, heavy, and substantial. And the price is incredible.
I have been looking for percale sheets that were like the ones I remembered from my Grandmother. These are WONDERFUL!!!! So cool and comfortable to sleep on. I always feel hot and this is the most comfortable I have been in years. If you remove them from the dryer immediately there is not a major issue with wrinkles and the fitted sheet has the best elastic on it that I have ever seen. I just switched from a super thick mattress to a memory foam one, that is only about 9 inches thick. These sheets fit and stay in place without any problem. The elastic really keeps them where they are suppposed to be. So don't let the extra deep keep you from buying them if you don't have that thick of a mattress. It really isn't an issue. The quality is absolutely amazing for the price. I highly recommend these sheets. You can't go wrong.
I had been looking for sheets that were Not sateen for some time and finally came across this set of percale sheets. I love that they are not shiny, but instead crisp and almost crunchy. They feel cooler when you first get into bed which is especially nice on hot summer nights. I don't care that they wrinkle. I have washed them several times and they are holding up well. I hope they are still available when I am able to get another set.
I ordered these sheets based on the reviews written and I am certainly pleased with the purchase. The percale is crisp and comfy and the perfect weight for a sheet to use in the summertime with the air conditioning going full tilt boogie. The wrinkle factor is negligable. They did have a strong chemical odor to them when first opened, or maybe it was the result of being in a plastic case, yet airing them out, stretched over the washer/dryer for a few days before tossing them in the washer eliminated it entirely. I'll be ordering another set if they're still available. I REALLY like these sheets.
