This the the third set of high thread count sheets I have purchased on Overstock.com. The first set was amazing and I wish I knew the brand name. The second was not worth the money and this set was the worst yet! So scratchy I cant even sleep on them. Going to wash them a few more times, hopefully they will get better but I do not have high hopes! Dont waste your money on these sheets!!
I just received this set and the pillowcases are not the same (sham style) as they show on the picture. Before I purchased them I even sent an email question to OVERSTOCK to ask them this question, and they assured me that they were the same as they appeared on the picture. Who knows, they may have even sent me a completely different set than I ordered. But, they are wonderful sheets. I ordered the ivory, and they are a little darker than previous shades of ivory I've ordered. They are thick, smooth, and they don't come out of the dryer very wrinkled (If you dry one sheet at a time!) So, aside from the problem with the pillowcases, I would definitely order these sheets!
Ordered one set, washed once, sleep well, ordered a second set in a different color. Shrinks a bit in the washing and drying but still fits a standard, medium depth queen perfectly. Don't know how well it will wear, of course, so far it's as advertised.
These sheets were very stiff when I received them , I washed them several times before using them . I have put them on my bed two times and they are starting to get holes in them . I have not bleached them , just to let you know because I know that can break down the fabric .
I am really happy with these sheets. I kept buying sheets that would eventually rip but I can tell these are going to really last much longer. I've washed them maybe 3-4 times so far. They have a substantial feel to them. I live in FL so I didn't want them too heavy, and while these are heavier than other sheets I've had with half the threadcount, I think they will be fine even when it starts to get really hot. The pockets are nice and deep and no shrinking issues.
I was very disappointed. I expected them to be ultra soft. They were not soft. Actually, they were scratchy. I have gotten Egyptian cotton sateen before and they were a dream. I don't know what happened with these, but they were terrible. I won't buy sheets from this site ever again!
