I loved the pillowcases, I bought them in blue. However, they look nothing like the color and have none of the sheen or shine I had expected from the photo. Having said that, I loved the blue, love the thickness and am just a bit let down that they are not as soft as I had hoped. Quick delivery as always. Overstock never lets me down, even when the photo may be a bit off or my idea of what I'm getting may sometimes be a hopeful surprise...it's usually no big deal and usually even better than I imagined.
I orderred these pillow cases to go with some sheets that I had that looked just like the color presented. I orderred the Blue. However, when they arrived i was very disappointed to discover that they were in fact a different color on the wheel. From the picture, I was expecting a light to medium blue. What I got what an Icy Green color. Almost a lightJjade sort of color. I was very distrubed by the severe difference in color.
I bought these sheets as a gift for a friend and she loves them! I helped her put them on their bed after laundering and they had a wonderful texture. So, I'll be buying them for myself now! I really do recommend these for their wonderful quality.... The good price was just an added bonus!
It is difficult to put into words other then saying beyond LUXURIOUS , quality , value and top of the line . First class and elegant when you lay your on these i pillow cases it's easy to fall asleep with a smile on your face and drift off to sleep peacefully and contented .
The quality of these pillow cases are top notch. I have only washed them one time so do not know how they will wear but from the look and feel of the material I think they will do fine. They are soft and comfy. I ordered the wrong color and I am thinking on ordering another set in the right color.
I ordered these fro my extra pillows. They were to be light blue. The color is really off, though, almost a greyish-blue, almost a tint of green. They are well cut king, a premium J C Penney product and have an 800 thread count with a nice sheen. They launder well, too, and have pretty stitching near the open ends. If you are not looking for a blue to match, you should like them.
These are very well made, and obviously going to last a very long time. However, this cotton is a bit more rough surfaced than my other sateen pillowcases. Since your face is in direct contact with them, the rough feel may bother. The quality is good, however. They are well constructed and the fabric is as advertised. I think I'll stick with sateen for future purchases though.
These pillow cases smelled like mothballs when I pulled them out of the package but after a wash I couldn't detect the smell anymore. The color (vanilla) is as I expected and the fabric seems sturdy but soft. They get quite wrinkly when in use however, I am using them on some Temperpedic pillows that are a little small- dont keep the cases stretched taught- so that might increase the wrinkly potential. I've never bothered with buying an 800 thread count but trying it out on these pillow cases has me more convinced of the reasoning for spending the extra cash.
