There were so many positive reviews of this product I wondered if I got the wrong item. These pillow cases are left smooth texture then 100 percent cotton, don't feel at all like they are 1000 thread count, and the construction is not quality, as each of the two pillowcases has a pleat at the seam near the hem, so they are narrower than most pillowcases I've bought and don't fit a plump pillow easily. They also attract more lint than other sateens that are truly 1000 etc and truly wrinkle resistant. If someone else in the household have not opened them and wash them before I had a chance tolook at them, I would have returned them before they were laundered.
The pillowcases are fine and do come out of the dryer without a lot of wrinkles. I still like to iron them, to have them very smooth. What I don't like is that the fabric isn't as silky and smooth as 100% cotton cases. Even though they have 1,000 count fabric, I think the polyester content makes them a bit rough to the touch.
These sheets are wonderful. They are excellent quality. They are thick and heavy but still soft just like antique linens. And best of all they don't pill or wrinkle. I dry them on low and they never need ironing. My only regret is that I didn't buy more
I own 3 sets of these sheets and am giving my current sheet sets to my kids. These have a cool and solid thread count and have body to them - more so than 1600 TC. You just never know. I love these and will purchase a set in every color.
These pillowcases do NOT match the color of Luxor Treasures Egyptian 1000 thread count sheets. The color is more vivid on pillowcases... And when used with extra pillows on bed with sheets, looks garish... Purchased gold Note that pillowcases are a cotton poly blend...
I loved the Luxor sheets I ordered but they were and nice and thick. The cases are a "blend" and very very thin. They are not nearly as nice and will probably tear pretty easy and just don't feel as nice. If I could have found the matching cases to add on with my wonderful sheets I would have.
I have the sheets that go with these pillowcases. But just bought a king size feather pillow so needed bigger pillow cases to match the sheets. These are truly 1000 tc cases. They are heavy & not as soft until washed several times. But they will soften up & are like the old fashioned sheets grandma used to buy! They feel cool & crisp like good sheets are supposed to feel. If you buy these, I'd buy the sheets to go with them. They are quality material & will last for years. But, 100% cotton does shrink. So if you are buying for a standard size pillow, I'd buy a queen size pillow case as they will shrink a bit with every washing. Plus you must dry on low heat setting & remove from dryer right away or they wrinkle. But if you take them out right away, they are fine. Nice product. Would buy again.
