OH Dear!! I read every review and carefully chose this based on not ONE of them mentioning the sheets "pilling" - those little balls that can make sleeping impossible! But, they actually pilled the very first time we slept on them - I'm talking the 3rd or 4th night! I washed them before using, (as you must, not knowing what conditions they're manufactured under) hung dry, tumbled briefly on low heat. Thought perhaps the apparent "pills" would wash away maybe? No, they got worse with the 2nd week after a 2nd wash. I'm thinking that the manufacturer must have changed something - the fabric supplier or something. I bought the Queen set in blue - lovely to look at but, nope - unusable! Customer service was very accomadating - they've had no returns of this product, so maybe a different color or size will hold true to the other, excellent reviews. Perhaps just a rare defective set.
These sheets and duvet set looked so nice in the picture and I had such high hopes... When I opened them up there was a horrible stench that did not go away even after washing. I also noticed that both the sheets and duvet have such bad irregular patterns and it's very noticeable. It looks like the ink bled, it's so blurry, not nice and crisp like the picture. They are soft but not top quality. I think they should have been clearly labled as "IRREGULAR", to be fair to the consumer. I'll never buy bedding or linens from overstock.com again.
I ordered the sheet set because I love paisley and the blue and tan colors matched the bedroom perfectly. When they arrived the colors were perfect, they felt like good quality. After laundering it was obvious that they were not sateen. They feel very thin and almost rough. I am very disappointed. The price was low for king sized sheet set so I guess you get what you pay for.
I ordered these sheets when we got a new mattress just so it was all new. I really like print sheets too, although they are often hard to find. These are soft, pretty and yet not too feminine. Te color is muted so they aren't too wild, but they are a nice pattern.
nice soft sheets. good value for the set. bought the matching duvet cover, and was pleased with the set overall. the color is more subtle than in the photos, mostly taupe with light grey, and charcoal patterns. came timely, and the husband loved them too.
Love the print, like the feel, unfortunately, the fitted sheet will not stay on my mattress. The corners won't stay down, so the sheet bunches up. Guess it was actually a little TOO deep for my sleep number bed. Keeping them, and will try to find a way to make them stay on the bed, becuase I LOVE the feel.
These sheets are beautiful and fit well. I wanted to get sheets that didn't show protein stains and these are perfect. I wanted to mention that the gray is not as light colored as it shows in the picture and is actually quite similar to the Mocha color, only better. The Mocha color has a sort of brownish green in the background. The Gray is the brown paisley with a lovely gray in the background. Quite attractive.
Terrible pilling!! I bought two king sets ,wished I would of left one set packed so I could of sent them back. Now I have two sets and I will never use them!! Feels like you are sleeping in sand, one of my biggest pet peeves with sheets.
Nice sheets. The sheets have a generous cut. Nice and soft right away. They do not require ironing. My only complaint is that the pillow cases were pretty narrow. You have to take your time putting them on. After one year, the seams on the pillow case started to open. I believe it was from stuggling to put them on.
Love it! Yes, there was a smell right out of the box but we just washed them like you would anything else brand new and they are fine now. They are so soft and combined with the duvet cover make for a wonderful new theme for our master bedroom. Would definitely recommend these to a friend and am thinking of buying a second set to have so they will last longer.
