The sheets came - they're Karen Neuberger brand, which I was happy to recognize from department stores. They felt really soft right out of the box, but after I washed them and put them on the bed I thought they felt a littly scratchy. My husband disagreed - he loves them and thinks they're luxurious. They look beautiful - the sheen is really lovely. I'm sure after a few more washes with fabric softener they will be just right.
I wanted to buy 1000TC sheets but thought this would be an acceptable alternative and less expensive. I should have gone with my original intent. This sheet set is very disappointing. Not only are they NOT crisp to the feel, they look cheap in that they don't hold their shape and there were at least a dozen hanging threads I had to cut off. I have to pull the pillow cases to try and reshape them into a rectangle but they are permanently mishapen. These sheets are poor quality any way I look at them. If it wasn't such a hassle to send them back after I had washed them I certainly would have done so. My advice is to save your money.
These sheets are very soft and comfortable and they don't seem to "pill" when you wash them. The colors in the picture are pretty true, which is to say that the colors are quite muted. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that the elastic on the fitted sheet could be "tighter". I find that the corners of the sheets frequently slide up which then makes them quite saggy on the mattress. They fit the deep mattresses well, but they do slide up. Oh well. I got them on a deeply discounted sale. It was worth what I paid for them.
I PURCHASED TWO (2 OF THESE SHEET SETS FROM OVERSTOCK ~~ NEVER HAVING PURCHASED OVER "300 THREAD COUNT SHEETS" BEFORE!! AT FIRST I WAS A LITTLE "SKEPTICAL" THAT IF IN FACT THEY WERE NOT AS DESCRIBED I WOULD BE TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED AND HAVE TO SHIP BOTH SETS BACK (THE OTHER WAS 600 THREAD COUNT)!! ONCE I OPENED THE FIRST ONE AND RAN MY FINGERS ACROSS IT, HOWEVER, I KNEW I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION!! NOW MY KIDS BOTH "SLEEP IN LUXURY" ~~ AND THE COST VS. OTHER COMPETITORS IS DEFINITELY "MUCH LESS"!! SO I REST IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I MADE A "VERY WISE CHOICE"!! THANKS AGAIN OVERSTOCK ~~ YOUR THE BEST!!
These sheets are of very good quality and were a good deal. The color I chose was exactly what I was hoping for and I am very happy with this purchase. If your anything like me, and you appreciate really good bedding with a high thread count, then you will like these sheets.
