These are the BEST sheets I have ever purchased! The quality is amazing. The elastic around the fitted sheet is 1 1/2" thick sewing directly onto the sheet not in a pocket hem. There are instructions on care stand out when you open them which is great because I never would have thought to wash them in cold water delicate cycle with vinegar and dry them on cool. I don't know about you but I usually wash all sheets especially new ones in hot water normal cycle. For once I was actually prompted to follow the washing instructions and again it was the best thing I could have done. When it was time to put them on the bed it was if I was putting on an old pair of jeans, perfect! The pockets on the fitted sheet were nice and deep and haven't shifted after several nights. I will more than likely purchase another set so I don't have to go without while I wash these. (side note I wish manufacturers that make deep pocket sheets took this into account with the top sheet which almost always feels small when compared to the bottom sheets depth)
I ordered these sheets for a Queen bed. At first glace, they looked lovely, but I couldn't even fit a standard pillow in the tiny pillow cases that came with the set. And, the seemingly soft sheets felt scratchy like fiberglass on my skin. It's too bad these weren't the luxury sheets I was expecting, as it is hard to find deep pocket flannel sheets. I just hope I get my full refund from Overstock, especially since I am a first-time customer.
This is my first ucky experience buying sheets from O.co. Prior purchases in sheets has always been a great experience. Initially, the sheets felt great- I washed them before use (didn't find the enclosed paper suggesting vinegar in the rinse cycle till after the wash) cold water, low heat to dry and they were substantially less soft and they smelt a bit off. Strange fit- they'll do for me- but I won't be buying other sets as I had initially thought I might.
One piillow case split open at the seam, the sheets are almost shedding fuzz. Also they were supposed to fit deep mattress, had to pull hard to get them to fit and our mattress is not as deep as the sheets are supposed to fit. I would never recommend these to anyone. What more can I say except I was very disappointed in the quality. I should know never to buy cheap it doesnt pay in the long run.
In spite of some negative reviews I decided to give these a try because they were the only dark purple flannel sheets I could find anywhere, and that's what I wanted. They are perfectly good sheets, but I'm not sure what about them is supposed to make them "luxury." Some have said they got mismatched or small pillow cases. I got the full size, and they came with two standard sized pillow cases, matching the dimensions of all of my other pillow cases exactly. I washed them before putting them on the bed. They didn't seem luxuriously soft before I washed them, but they didn't seem changed after I washed them, as some reviewers have said. (Luxuriously soft or not, they're perfectly comfortable. But I'm no princess when it comes to sheets so maybe I just don't know.) Even though the tag says to wash them cold I always like to wash dark colored cotton on warm the first time to get the bleeding over with. I do my laundry at a laundromat so I didn't bother with the vinegar as instructed. I cleaned the dryer lint trap both before and after, and I have never SEEN such a blanket of lint--it was literally thick enough to be a blanket. But the sheets came out just fine. They are extremely bulky; I put them in a triple loader by themselves and didn't feel I was underloading the machine. When folded they make a stack twice as tall as most sheets, and at least half again as tall as my other flannel sheets. They are thicker than my other flannel sheets; even though last night was near a record for cold, I didn't need the extra blanket I'd been using (though I also put a memory foam mattress topper on for the first time last night, which may also have kept me warmer). But in addition to the thickness, the deep pockets of the fitted sheet add a lot to the bulk. Someone complained that the fitted sheet isn't deep enough. My mattress and topper together are 10.5 inches thick, and the fitted sheet reaches about 6 inches across the bottom of the mattress. I know there are extremely thick mattresses out there these days (though why I just don't understand) but these are the deepest pocketed sheets I've seen in my life.
When the sheets arrived & came out of the bag they were incredibly soft & wonderful. However, I don't use anything without washing it first. I washed them in warm water with fabric softener & tumbled them on a low heat to dry. The sheets came out with much less "flannel" flocking, it was all gathered in my dryer's lint screen. They also didn't feel as soft as they did right out of the package! I'm using them & I'll keep them, but I was really hoping they would be a better quality. They have pilled some since I washed them - they're due for a 2nd washing - hopefully it will turn out better. I won't buy these again.
The quality of the sheet is good, not great as they are not as soft as I would have liked. The bottom sheet has a terrific elastic band that makes it very easy to put on, even over a mattress topper and feather bed. The description says oversized, but the top sheet, however is not wide enough and therefore only has about a 4 inch side drop, making it difficult for 2 people to stay covered.
Washed per instructions, and WOW they don't pill. Love that they are deep pockets as my mattress is Huge. One of the pillowcases did have a tear in seam but, I sew so not big enough deal to return. In all very happy, going to look for cotton sheets with same deep pockets.
I ordered the luxury deep flannel sheets. They arrived significantly ahead of the time estimated. They are extremely soft and fit beautifully. I was also happy to receive the care instructions which explained why I may have had issues with flannel sheets purchased locally in the past. I am extremely pleased with the quality of this product at the price offered and would reorder the same.
I washed these sheets according to directions and they did not pill. Nice thick, soft fabric, WONDERFUL bottom fitted sheet. Too bad the top sheet was not proportionately larger. The pillow cases could definitely have been larger, too, because they barely cover. Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase, and, as always, with Overstocks.
The xtra deep pocket queen sheets fit our bed wonderfully. These flannel sheets are extremely hard to find, especially at this price. They are thick, soft, and feel so good on cold nights. We have a 20" mattress and most sheets have to be pulled too tight to fit, but these fit perfectly.
The sheets are nice and soft when you take them out of the bag however are really ruff after you wash them due to all the material that ends up in the lint catcher. I do like the deep pockets they fit the mattress really good however they did not take into consideration making the flat sheet bigger. It falls about 3-4 ft short of making it to the top of the mattress depending on how much you put under mattress, you would think since the mattress cover is made for a thick mattress they would take into account the flat sheet needing to be bigger.
We ordered fitted sheets and the order arrived with the correct description and size on the package, but the sheets were several inches too small and we couldn't even get them on the mattress. They were not another standard size and just packaged wrong, they were just shabbily made with no attention to detail. We got a return authorization, paid for the shipping box, and returned them. Online tracking verified that they had been received, but over a week later I had not gotten even a courtesy response that the product had been received. We were very dissapointed in the entire process.
