Wonderful sheets! Purchased Ivory 1st, then sage. These sheets are great but do need a "breaking in time" as is the case with most high TC bedding. Because they are thick heavy sheets you really need to wash them probably a dozen cycles to start feeling just how soft they become. I have similar quality white sheets, also Egyptian cotton, they have been washed multiple times the past yr & now are sooooo!!!! soft. What you're paying for is the density of weaving, that's what "thread count" means, to those not accustomed to this they may seem heavy & even a little scratchy at 1st. Once broken in, you'll love them & sleep so well you'll never go back and they will last for many yrs, they are an investment. RE: wrinkling issue, 1st they are cotton, 2nd launder as recommended, 3rd dry top & bottom sheets separately with a tennis ball in the dryer (old trick) that keeps them from "balling up", 4th fold & stack nicely; this should smooth out most of the wrinkles. I alternate my linens, touch up top sheet/ pillow cases with iron & my bed always looks & feels WONDERFUL!!! Overstock is great, prices can't be beat & customer service is fab. Invest in these linens, you'll be glad you did (WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR SLEEP?)
Overstock has done it again..... These sheets are not for the feign of heart. They are not your silky, satiny, impress your boyfriend or girlfriend with the feel of soft (cheap) sheets. These sheets are built for sleeping - in comfort. Yes, when you wash them they wrinkle..... but if you press them they can be made as straight as a level..... They are cool, crisp, smell like springtime freshness, sleep like a baby sheets that are cool to the touch and look like a million dollars on the bed. Don't write me about too scratchy or too stiff... When I'm in bed I like mine stiff. The fact is these are the finest quality sheets that you will ever find for the money - and I have tried virtually all of them. These things wear like iron, last for years, and will be as good for sleeping five years from now as anything in your linen closet. There... I've said it - and I've said all I have to say about this product.
This Egyptian Cotton 1200 thread count is definitely the best sheets that is out there. A lot of people prefer the sateen sheets which slides and is very slippery. Before upgrading to the Kingsdown King Size bed, we had a queen size and were using a high quality (900tc) and it was very comfortable, but this 1200 tc is by far the most comfortable I've had. I'm very happy with my purchase and will be purchasing the other different colors. F.Y.I. There is a 1000tc that is available by other manufactures that is listed on overstock, but it isn't as half as good as the Egyptian Cotton 1200tc. I know because I made a mistake in purchasing the 1000tc.
So, overall, a great price for a hefty threadcount. The sheets have gone through several washes and are still smooth and have perfect hems. They seem to be well made and durable. The only downside is they are thick sheets--really thick. Their threadcount seems to relate to the density rather than the feel of the fabric. So, if you're looking to slide into sateen heaven at night, these are not your sheets. If you're looking for smooth, hearty sheets, buy away!
There is a misconception about sheets out there that the higher the thread count the better the quality. This is only partially true. Actually, the highest quality sheets are a SINGLE ply, high thread count. The single ply is just as important as the thread count. I purchased two sets of these sheets and can guarantee you that they are not single ply. These sheets feel (and weigh) much like canvas. They are thick and will likely last a lifetime, but it will take at least a lifetime for them to become soft. Do yourself a favor and make sure that you purchase single ply sheets. You will be much more pleased with the softness.
Wasn't exactly what I thought I was getting. I thought they would be the same as the sheets I had purchased previously... so soft right out of the box. They weren't, however, after washing them a few times I can tell that they will eventually get there. It's a heavy sheet and can almost be used as a light blanket, but that isn't discomforting to me and it just goes to show that the quality of the fabric is that good. No pilling or stray fabric ends after washing, another testimate to the quality of fabric. The only thing holding me back from the 5 star rating is that they aren't soft yet and that the pillow cases aren't offered in sizes other than standard. Since I have Queen sized pillows it would have been nice to have the option when making my purchase to get pillow cases that fit my pillows.
I wont buy anything less than 1000tc sheets. I have some 1500s, and these feel just like them.....wonderful! What really amazes me is the price. I paid more than double this for my last set. This is my first OSC purchase, and I know where to look for bargains now
I purchased 4 sets of these sheets to replace the older sets of sheets in my linen closets. The price was decent so I figured I would give them a shot since they got relatively good reviews. The color(s) are good and accurate on the website. The stitching in these sheets is horrible. Poor quality all the way around, but if you know a decent tailor or have a sewing machine, there's nothing you can't fix since, after all, sheets are pretty simple construction. However, the fact that one would be faced with repairing stitching on sheets for which you have paid over $100 brings the whole value proposition into question. They're comfortable and decent fabric quality. That's about the extent of it.
I have bought high thread count sheets from O.com in the past and been very happy with the quality of the sheets. This set, however, lasted only two months. Without obvious cause, the sheets ripped on the third use. Will buy another set from O.co, but from a different manufacturer.
These sheets are beautifully made however they are heavy and do wrinkle even thou I take them out right away after partially drying. They are beautiful when Ironed. I have washed mine twice since I got them and they are stil quite rough but I know from other 1200 ones that they get softer with each washing. These sheets will last almost forever but don't wash in hot water or they will shrink.
I was extremely pleased with the sheet set I received. This is the 1st sheet set that I have been able to find that is...soft, quality made, and that I could afford. I definitly recommend these...Actually, I already have...to my mom! If that doesn't tell you something, then I don't know what would. The fitted sheet is made with deep pockets, which is a must for many!!! I am thinking of buying another set for myself!!! It is definitely well worth the money!
I had purchased 800-count before, which was so soft, I could not believe it. However, this 1200-count is not quite soft, and I thought it would be even better. Perhaps it will get softer with more wash, but it is a disappointment so far.
This is the 2nd or 3rd Egyptian Cotton 1000+ king size sheet set I purchase from Overstock. I always purchase white because I like the 5-star hotel look and feel. I am reviewing the King White Set I purchased back in Oct 2012. When I initially purchased this I thought it was another set, luckily it was this one. Compared to the other 2 sets I've had, I like this one the best. They are oversized with minimal shrinkage and still fit my king bed after 2 1/2 years of washing. I thought I had a high bed (must be my bed frame and boxspring), but I measured and my mattress is only 13" including the pillowtop. The flat sheets hangs down 12-13" on each side which is what I want. My other sets have shrunk and only hang down about 4-5" on each side which is awful. These sheets are holding up very well. I've had no pilling, are still soft and have had barely any shrinkage over the years. I would purchase these again, in fact, I am purchasing my 2nd set today! I hope this review helps.
When I pulled these sheets out of the package, my first thought was "Oh no, the negative reviews were right! This thing feels like a heavy canvass!" All the reviews that say such are right, but I put it through the was once, placed it on my bed, and realized how soft these sheets are. As other reviews state, these are not sateen sheets, where it's like sleeping on a slip-and-slide. These are solid, heavy duty sheets that have a quality of softness that I didn't know could come with the sturdiness of the material. Honestly, they're extremely comfortable after just one wash; I can't wait to see how they feel after a second wash! A couple of other things to note: It seems that this sheet set is of the sort of quality where the material will not pill over time (which is great, because pilling lessens the quality and softness of the fabric) and the sheets retain heat well.
I was hoping for better sheets than these as the two prior sets I had bought were excellent and I had no complaints. I bought a set of these sheets for myself as well as my daughter. Both sets are unacceptable. They were thin, and have tiny little balls of thread, like cheap sheets I bought in my younger days. It has been a year ago that I bought them, but they have been unsatisfactory from the start. I use another set that I bought previously instead of these.
These sheets are great. Very heavy and well made. I first purchased the ivory sheet set for my bed and was surprised at how oversized these actually were. I have a very deep mattress and the fitted sheet was really too big but I loved how large and heavy the flat sheet was. You can actually use it as a light blanket on warm nights and feel comfortable. I had considered washing in hot water just to shrink the fitted sheet some but thankfully good sense won out and I washed them in cold. They did shrink some so please beware not to use hot water. The edges did wrinkle up some so I ironed them flat, hoping with age that this will stop. I did read another review of placing sheets in dryer separately with a tennis ball, thought I would give this a try next time as they are really too heavy a set to wash and dry both together. I have since ordered myself a set in sage. Just got them the other day and I hope I love them just as much.
I usually don't write bad reviews, but I just couldn't help it. I cant believe 1200 Thread count sheets could be so disappointing. When I got them, they weren't as soft as I hoped they would be, but they looked like they were good quality, so I gave them a chance. My husband tosses and turns a lot, and 10 months later, the sheets started piling on his side! My husband says it's like sleeping on sandpaper! How AWFUL!
