These sheets are heavenly! They do require "special" treatment...but, BOY, is it worth it!! First thing to do is wash them...3 times, back-to-back. Yes, I do mean wash them, then reset and wash them again, then reset and wash them again...then put them in the dryer. This will get rid of that smell they come with and help to make them "soft as butter". Remove them from the dryer while they are still damp...not wet, just barely damp. Then iron them. I use a steam iron. I iron the fitted sheet while on the bed (easier because of the elastic). Then I fold the flat sheet in fourths, width wise. That way when you iron, the creases will be across the bed and you won't feel them . Then I iron the pillow cases. If you do this, I promise you will not want to leave that bed! BEWARE, if you forget to take the sheets out of the dryer before they are completely dry, you will be ironing for an hour. Do it the way I told you and you're done in twenty minutes tops.
These sheets have a fantastic feel to them, and do not wrinkle much in the dryer. I ordered the gold ones, and the gold color is lighter than the picture indicates. They arrived just a few days after I ordered them. Overstock never disappoints me.
These are very nice quality sheets and they did not shrink after washing them. The fitted sheet is made for extra deep mattresses as well. It is also worthwhile to note that just because these are 600 thread count sheets that one should expect them to be soft, with a satin feel. They are not that type of sheet set. These cotton sheets are thicker and more like high-end hotel grade sheets (which I like). They do not wrinkle much if you take them out of the dryer as soon as they are completely dried. These 600 thread count sheets are a bit more ¿course¿ than 300 count sheets. So be aware of this if you are thinking that higher thread count means softer, more satiny-feeling sheets. Also, there was hardly any lint in the dryer after washing these sheets for the first time. Another sign that these are a good value for the price.
I got these sheets in the ivory and they looked really nice to start. I have now had them for a couple of months and they look and feel terrible. The sheets have pilled really badly and are now really scratchy. When this first happened I was not concerned because my other high thread count sheets did the same thing. The difference with these is that it did not go away in the wash. For the price these sheets are not a good deal.
These sheets were unexpectedly soft and comfortable. I didn't know what to expect for the price I paid but boy was I pleased. They have to be washed a few times to reach maximum softness. Once you do that they are quite enjoyable. They come out of the dryer quite wrinkled but that is to be expected. I definitely recommend them.
I just ordered these WONDERFUL sheets. I have been shopping for these type of sheets for over a year. My husband is very picky about where we are half the time. When I order any item on line, I usually like to read the reivews that customers make regarding the item I am interested in. I recieved my sheets within that week of odering them, thank you OVERSTOCK!!!!!!!!! These sheets felt like we where in luxury and even felt that we were in a five star hotel. I ordered the white colored sheets and I think this is the color I am going to stick with forever. The sheets were very cool and light, we slept like babies and my husband kept thanking me all night for these WONDERFUL sheets. I am hooked.................
These sheets are wonderful! I am use to the thicker Egyptian Cotton Sheets, but these are a very welcome change in the summer. They feel very soft, and just smooth like butter. I have washed and they came out wonderful. I noticed that some complained about pilling, but if you wash correctly you don't have any problems. Sheets should be washed alone and only with the set it belongs in. Different types of fabric can pull and get stuck in the fibers of other items, therefore causing a problem. Some say they wrinkle, and yes a little, but ITS SHEETS! Air Fluff in the dryer, remove when they are done and put them on your bed. No problems. I will be buying more of these. Trust me I have bought several sets of sheets and been unhappy with most,, you will not regret this choice! LOVE IT!
We purchased Calif King linens. The selection at our local retail outlets was little or none. The choices at Overstock.com were numerous. Our order was shipped very quickly. The texture of the product is very comfortable and looks great.
My husband and I do like the feel and depth of these deep pocket sheets. (We have have a 4-inch memory foam topper on our Cal King.) However, the price point was a bit high, considering there are not many deep pocket options on the "O". Overall, the sheets are soft and the color that arrived was what we expected (blue).
I ordered two different colors and received different brands of sheet. The blue set was very soft, smooth and just a little shiny. Very comfy. The gold set was scratchier, not shiny at all. *shrug* I'm happy with both. Just be aware that quality can vary when you order.
