I was very excited to recieve this item which was much more appropriate for our Olympic Queen bed than our old 600 thread count King sized sheets. My first impression was that they felt a bit rough and upon comparison were not as soft as my old sheets, however they fit much better and were almost a bit large for the mattress. I threw them in the washer and dryer and when I tried to put them back on the bed, I found that the fitted sheet had shrunk significantly and was very difficult to stretch over the mattress. I was amazed at how much they shrunk in the wash and felt that this along with the "rough feel" was enough to return the product.
I have order this sheet set years ago it is so comfortable and few times I bring to camping put on my Fu Ton share with few lady friends in the tent every one want the same one but for years I try to get the same one never find it and I also put on let me know when it comes email me but ..it is every thick ,I saw a lady complain too thick it suppose to be that I wonder if she knows what it mean 1000 thread count .it means each Sq foot made of 1000 thread (,it means thick)and she says so thick not comfortable then she went to Wal Mart bought a 300 thread count it was so soft and comfortable ,300 thread count that you wash few times tore up..and this sheet I have been wash hundreds times it getting better and better ....

These sheets are amazing. Because of the high thread count and the fact that they are not 'sateen' , they are heavier than any sheets I have ever owned. The weight is a bit deceptive because they are incredibly comfortable. I have no doubt they will last for years. Very well made. I have a number of sheet sets but find myself washing these and putting them right back on my bed. The first time I washed them they wrinkled quite a bit but that issue has lessened with each subsequent washing. I see another purchase in my future.
Sleeping o these sheets is like heaven. The tight weave of the 1000 count makes for a near air tight fabric thats dense, yet comforting. These sheets are made to last years and provide the same level of comfort during their duration. I started using 1000 thread count sheets some yaers back, and there is no comparison to anything else. Other sheets seem flimsy after one or two washes, but you'll find these keep up there full feel and smooth texture for years. But the best part is the price. Overstock offers premium sheets at a price that allows anyone to appreciate them.
I read the reviews for these sheets and was anxiously waiting for my "1000 thread count egyptian cotton sheet set". When I got them, I was surprised when they felt "hard" ... they weren't soft as a "1000" thread count sheet set is supposed to feel like. In fact, I have a sheet set that's only 600 tc that's softer. I'm hoping they will get softer with time. But I have already washed the sheets four times and they haven't gotten any softer.
I love these sheets. I did not have any shrinking issues. I have a very large mattress and it is hard to find fitted sheets that fit. These fit wonderful. Of course, they wrinkle a little but I knew they would. I may even iron them one day. I will order another set soon.
I love these sheets!!! I have an 18" mattress and it has been so hard to find sheets that fit it. These sheets fit it perfectly. The flat sheet is nice and large and the fitted sheet covers the entire mattress. I am soooooo happy with these sheets. The fabric is nice and thick and so soft. If you have thick mattresses and you like nice quality fabric, these are the sheets for you. I couldn't be happier with my new sheets and I will be buying a second set.
I have thrown out all of my old cotton sheets after purchasing my first set of these. The sheets, which do wrinkle because they are all cotton, are just what I was looking for: a perfect combination of crisp, substantial and soft. The prices on Overstock beat everyone else by a mile!
These sheets are the thickest sheets I've ever owned. I was very surprised that they are actually so thick. I will order these again and would suggest these to anyone looking for possibly the best sheets ever. They are worth ever penny.
These Olympic size sheets are fantastic and exactly how most reviewers have described them! I was skeptical because personally I think very few things are made well today, but these appear as if they will hold up for years! Thick, percale cotton! Love Percale and hard to find! Personally hate the sateen c*** that must be cheaper to manufacture, thus it's everywhere. Even hubby loved and could definitely tell the difference. We threw away ** set that lasted one year! Paid *** (cost of sheets and one pillowcase set) with a discount through Overstock for these and we will for sure get many years out of them. Lesson learned! Pick up a couple extra pillowcase sets! We did since these sheets will be around for a while!
These sheets are comfortable and smooth. I've been trying to find another set to replace some that have become threadbare from use. These sheets are just what I was looking for. My only complaint is the cost, but I'm an old cheap lady so that might not bother everyone. They are a good value and should last several years.
