I purposely waited until I'd washed these sheets 3 or 4 times before writing my review, because I figured they would soften up with time, and they do. I've washed them about three times now and they are definitely THICK and comfy, and yes they've softened considerably. They don't have the luxurious, satiny feel that some high-thread count sheets have, and I think I know why: to get that feel I believe you have to order sheets in a sateen finish. Lesson learned, because I do have some sheets that have that wonderful, buttery feel, and though I love these new ones, I miss that feel. I'll know for next time.That said, these sheets are an excellent value, especially at the price I paid. They are of a very dense fabric. I agree with another reviewer who said they are best in winter. I think that's probably true, and as the weather starts warming, I'll no doubt look for a set with a lighter feel. If sateen-finish high-count sheets feel like satin, these feel more like flannel. Definitely soft, just not so smooth. (They're not rough either, they don't pill or anything like that, although I did notice lint coming off in the dryer; I actually had to clean my lint filter after drying, a first for sheets!)These sheets are great when you just want to snuggle down and get cozy. Want to feel pampered? Get sateen.
I bought a set of these sheets a little over a year ago after moving into a new home. These are by far my favorite sheets ordered from overstock. They may not be the highest thread count but don't let that fool you, these are softest most comfortable sheets I've gotten from overstock. Even after years worth of washing these continue to get softer.
I have a skin condition that requires sheets to be broken in. These sheets felt soft out of the packaging but not as soft as I require so don't judge your softness requirements by what I say, I think these will break in faster than most for me because it is well combed cotton. I have felt so many sets of high-end sheets that feel like sandpaper for months. I slept on the bottom sheet the first night so that is a miracle right there,They are well made, nice deep pockets, and the Turtle Dove color is a nice ivory/buff. They are also not too thick--not a heavy sheet at all so good all year round.
It took me a long time to decide which sheets I wanted to get-- I currently have a pair of white percale sheets that have yellowed over time, so was in the market for a new set. I washed these sheets before I used them, and I was immediately happy with them. They are quite thick, so I'm not sure if they are the perfect set for a hot summer night, but now that it's getting colder they are great. I highly recommend them- a great set at a great price.
I am very pleased with the sheets. They have a nice slick feeling to them which keeps them feeling cool which I love! They wash well and don't wrinkle too badly if you take them out of the dryer promptly and put them on the bed. For the price, you can't beat it!
This was my first order and when I pulled them out of the package they felt very nice and soft. I washed them before using and when they came out of the wash they felt like canvas. I read all the reviews before I purchased them and can't believe I had such a different experience than everyone else.
I ordered a set of these sheets in a california king size. I ordered them in that Ivory color. I had never had Egyptian sheets before and did not want to try them and be disappointed, and the count was only 530, but I read the reviews and decided to buy. I washed them as soon as they arrived and dried them in the dryer. Do they wrinkle? No they don't. They were for the master bedroom and they are soft and a lovely color.
Given the previews on these sheets, I ordered them expecting "heavy and substantial." That is not the case. They feel more like microfiber. They are not as thin as microfiber but not nearly as heavy as expected for 530 count sheets. I do not recommend them unless the buyer is seeking lightweight sheets.
These felt lovely until the 2nd wash, when the top "layer" began to pill up into little nubs. Now (about 3 months in) the sheets are so rough, lumpy and scratchy they're basically uncomfortable to sleep in. Some of the poorest quality sheets I've ever purchased.
I have washed this set of sheet for about four or five times now. and I started to notice there is small bumps appear on the sheets which your skin will definitely notice when you lying on it. Only products contains acrylic will cause this happen. I am very disappointed. Also, this sheet is not as thick as normally 530 thread would be. a little thinner, though it is soft. I am usually not very picky person. but I would not buy this one again.
These sheets took almost a week to get delivered. That is probably the only negative on these sheets. The fabric is extremely soft - just what you would expect from Egyptian cotton sheets, and the pockets are extra deep-my pillow-top mattress had no problems. Sheets are generously oversized - very impressive. great classy looking hem treatment. Elegant comfy sheets. I would recommend these sheets - I have already ordered two other colors.
These sheets have a substantial weight, which is very nice in cooler weather. They are comfortable, but not super soft. I ordered a set in ivory. The package said ivory, but the color is much more a golden butter yellow. Maybe "aged ivory" would be a better color description. They wash well, with minor wrinkling. The pockets fit my 20 inch mattress very well, and the top sheet has plenty to tuck in and still have room at the top to fold over a blanket.
This set was purchased for our guest bedroom. Our guest specifically commented on how comfortable the bed linens were. They were described as cloud soft, felt warm as you slept on them and made it difficult to get out of bed the next morning. To avoid the need to press, fold right out of dryer. Color was as pictured and fit was as advertised. Pleased with purchase and plan to purchase more. Good value.
I bought these sheets a year ago and I can't get enough of them... I look forward to the week they get put on! Love the color and I think they are so soft! I use Gain Detergent, Fabric Softner AND dryer sheets and have never had a problem!
I have never ever bought sheets that were made from Egyptian cotton and they are incredible. The 530 thread count is not too heavy and they are smooth and soft to the touch. They hold up well in the wash and are made to last. I will definitely buy them again.I have also decided to gift a set to all my relatives for their birthdays and anniversaries which they would highly appreciate.
Now i know where i have to look when i need a set of new sheets.You can't imagine the amount of satisfaction you get when you buy something online and it turns out to be really good buy.These sheets are really one of those products.Now even my wife compliments me on my skills.Beautiful sheets,Beautiful finish and great colors.Completely satisfied.
