Don't be fooled as I was! This product is half cotton and half polyester, NOT 100% cotton, so the "1000 thread count" is actually divided among cotton and polyester. The material is very heavy and feels like sleeping in a thick tablecloth. I would have returned it, but the sheets were opened and washed before I got my hands on them.
These sheets are 55 cotton/45 poly, which helps with the wrinkle resistance. The sheets are heavy and good quality, but not hot at all. Three washings so far and we like them. Color (blue) was exactly as shown. I'm thinking about getting a second set in the taupe color.
I wanted to use these sheets on a converted twin bed to king bed. I visit family a couple of times a year and all they have are twin beds (Tough to sleep with wife and sometims a kid on a twin). I sent them directly to my family, when I arrived and opened the package the sheets felt stiff and cardboard like, and since I never had 1000 TC I would have thought they would be softer. I did not have time to wash them so I put them on the bed. They fit well and were deep enough to fit around the box spring, and they felt fine, I di not notice the stifnessm but ind out if the sheets softend up on my next visit.
I ordered two sets of the same sheet set, but this set was not the same as the other set. It is just a little too small. Fits like a standard King nor California King deep pocket. Was able to use, but it does not fit right and will change as soon as other set is cleaned. Am perfectly satisfied with other set.
I feel extremely upset about the horrible condition these sheets are in after less than a year of use. This is 1 of 3 sets that I rotate on my California king bed, and after about 6 months of use, I noticed there were tears in these really thick sheets. This has NEVER happened before in any kind of sheets I have ever put on this bed. They are now just getting worse with every wash. And it isn't even on a seem, it is right in the middle of the fabric. I now have about 6 places where the fabric is shot. I would never recommend this brand, I will never buy it again!
I have purchase many sheet sets over the years from Overstock, and I refuse to purchase sheets from anywhere else. I have looked at stores and websites, and for 1000 count sheets, I can not find a better deal. I have purchased about 4 different sheet sets from Overstock and I have not been disappointed! I did make the mistake of purchasing an 800 count sheet set at one time, figuring the 200 thread count would not make that much of a difference, but it really did. I will never purchase anything less than 1000 count. I have purchased the sateen sheets, the Egyptian cotton ones, and now these wrinkle resistant ones, and I have enjoyed them all. These sheets are quite heavy, but I like that quality in sheets. I have always been satisfied by my bedding purchases at Overstock, and I think they are an excellent value!!
These sheets are the most comfortable and warmest sheets I have ever owned. The top sheet is super warm without being overly heavy. The sheets and pillow cases do not wrinkle when you take them out of the dryer warm. They are awesome! I bought a pair for my daughter and son-in-law, who alos love their softness.
Don't hesitate for a second. These are incredible quality and for such a price....who would have thought??? For a person with CFS and fibromyalgia, these are so sweet and comforting. Who else would know best how to rate a sheet? These are lovely & so comfy. They wash and wear like iron
