I have been desperately looking for sheets that fit an extra deep mattress. Finally found them, so very pleased! The sheets do feel "heavy", but very soft, on initial inspection. However, they are very comfortable to sleep on and wash well, no shrink. I'm very pleased with my purchase and plan on ordering another set, once the color is available.
Sheets were ok for a little while... I used these in my 4 sheets rotation and after a couple of uses they ripped... I have come to the conclusion that no matter what the thread count or the price these sheets are garbage. I have a 400 thread count bought eslewhere that were cheaper and still have them to this day and i had them for years. I will never purchase sheets from Overstock ever again.
These were well made sheets of a heavy weight; making them a little stiff but still soft. My husband says they are "loud" sheets. They have washed well and have an extra deep fitted bottom sheet - too much for standard mattresses. The design of the corner pockets allows for the thickness without creating a bunching of material at each corner.
I bought these sheets on 3/17/12 and I've already had to throw them away. It started out as a small tear in the fabric at the base/or top (depending on how I rotated my sheets) and when I put them back on the bed this last time after I washed them they tore all the way up to the middle. I don't wash my sheets in excess, maybe once every 2 weeks or so, and I thought the quality would have lasted more than a year. I wouldn't recommend these sheets at all! What a waste.
We are absolutely thrilled with these sheets. I have previously ordered sheet sets that indicated "deep pocket" but were still a stretch to fit our king-sized pillow-top mattress set. However, these deliver on the promise of "deep pockets" for the fitted sheet and the top sheet reaches all the way down to the bottom of the mattress on the sides and almost to the floor at the feet. One wash immediately rendered these sheets soft. The thread count is perfect because they're not super "crisp" and therefore aren't ice cold when you first climb in. But they're also breathable. My husband was totally amazed by how soft these sheets are after just a few cycles through the wash now. One note regarding color. As others have mentioned, the ivory color (which is what I ordered) is definitely a bit yellower (somewhere between ivory and a buttery tone). I've seen comments that they're more "golden" but I think that's an overstatement of the color variation. It still works great with my brown duvet and pillow shams so I'm happy.
Primary reason for purchasing these sheets was a deep pocket. With the current generation plush top mattresses, I have found that standard fitted sheets routinely slip off the mattress and I end up virtually remaking the bed in its entirety every day (and getting quite the workout bending and stretching the sheet to just fit over all four corners). The mattress I purchased these for is a little older, so no quite as "plush" as it once was. Therefore, I was a little worried that it would be too baggy around the edges or in the middle. That was an unnecessary concern. When I placed them on the bed, they fit great and I realized the pockets were designed so if it was a more plush mattress they'd fit, but if it was less, they could be tucked further under to keep it taught and comfortable. Color was true to what I ordered and didn't fade after wash. The fabric is good and I think should wear well. After initial wash, the sheets are comfortable, but not as soft as I had hoped. I do think they have potential to be softer with additional washings.
I purchased these sheets in the cream color when I had to replace my sheet set. I was looking for a soft, cottony set and this fit the bill. I also wanted a set that would comfortably fit my bed without being stretched on the side. This one fit excellently over my pillow topper. The only way to improve this is if it were made in the USA.
I bought Pima sheets for my guest bedroom last year. I thought these were the same Pima sheets. Those sheets were very soft. These sheets are stiff. I'm hoping they soften with washing several times. They are beautiful. The sage color is more lime than a earthy sage. They have very nice deep pockets that hold on a not so deep mattress and a very deep mattress.
These are very nice sheets, come out of the dryer looking good, but two of the corners started to tear almost immediately. I lived with them that way but now the tears are going up into the material itself and I have to throw them away.
