At this writing, the reviews are 5 star. There's a reason--they're amazing sheets and reversible, too! Soft, beautiful, wash well--I couldn't be happier. My mattress is an 8-inch latex foam mattress on a board which I love. But it can't take the deep pocket sheets UNTIL NOW. The elastic around the fitted sheet tucks under my mattress so snug that there's no extra fabric on top and no puckering. The finish on these sheets is plush. I ordered a 2nd duplicate set (same color) after I saw how well they washed. Of course, you don't want to stuff your washer and dryer completely full, which will cause most things to wrinkle. When drying, give them lots of room to dry smoother. The sage colors (light/dark) are so pretty and perfectly match the colors in my comforter. I highly recommend these sheets. You can mix or match the colors, giving you several options to decorate your bed with. Try a dark color on the mattress and a lighter color on the flat sheet or darks showing on both or lights. It's fun to play with.
I saw these sheets online so I thought I would try them. They are FANTASTIC. My husband and I both just love them. They are so comfortable and they match the bedding perfectly. My sister-in-law who shops online all the time said that she had never heard of reversible sheets so she had a look at them and she is buying them as well. These sheets are such high quality well made sheet I can't believe it. You've definately made a beliver out of me. I will be buying more from O.com. THANKS O.COM
I read the 5 star reviews on these sheets, and forgot to read the small print which says the fabric makeup. I washed the sheets before I noticed they are 40% polyester. Because I can't return them, I thought I would try them out. I am NOT a fan, and do not understand the other reviews. Yes, they look pretty, but they feel awful. I am going to have to sell them now, as I am out $70.
I ordered these on the recommendation of other Overstock customers.... They were right on the mark as these are lovely sheets! The nice deep pockets of the fitted sheet could easily fit so many different mattresses of combinations there of. Great Buy! Thank you...
Though my bed is slightly narrower than standard king-sized beds (72" vs. 76"; and its not a California king, being only 80" long), new fitted sheets usually fit okay, if not taut, on it. These are HUGE and I'm forced to tuck a significant amount of material from the fitted sheet underneath the mattress (a pain with a heavy king-sized mattress). These sheets have forced me to completely remake the bed each morning, a chore I don't relish. Since my last set of old percale sheets bit the dust, I've been looking for a replacement set, but this set is not it. It's impossible to find quality percale all cotton sheets, similar to ones made 20 - 30 years ago but I was hopeful with these, given the good to excellent reviews. I'd been using the more common "sateen stripe" sheets as extra sets but the fitted sheets have a tendency to stretch and pull up during the night and we end up with folds of fabric underneath us by the time morning comes along, and frankly, the drape is a bit too soft. I'm also not a fan of elastic all around the bottom of the fitted sheet; that contributes to the fitted sheet shifting during the night and pulling up. But try to find a sheet set without it! The reversible aspect of these sheets is a nice option, though. I'll continue to use them (and remake the bed every morning) until I find a set that meets my expectations - although I fear I'll never find them (or will end up paying hundreds of dollars for a set that meets those standards). These sheets are also a bit scratchy; not soft at all. I'm hoping they'll get softer with washing.
These are wonderful sheets. They go perfectly with the quilt I just bought from O. They are almost like satin and my only problem is that my quilt slides depending on how I move. It is an extra bonus to have them reversible - it is like getting two sets for the price of one. The old adage is right-the better the sheets the colder the water to wash them.
I must have gotten a bad pair because the customer service rep said no one else had returned them. I was expecting something soft and nice and these were shiny and noisy and reminded me of parachute material. They are going back pronto.
For the price these sheets are a great deal. I purchased 2 sets to go in my spare bedroom. (I like to keep an extra set while one is being washed) They are true to color and feel soft. I have a pillow top mattress and the sheets fit perfect. The two tones are actually 2 sets of sheets sewn together, so they have a nice weight to them.
I have ordered numerous sheets on line and have rarely purchased sheets that I consider worth recommended. These sheets are worth a recommendation. They are nice and think...not flimsy and thin. Very soft. Washes really well. No pilling. Despite my critical nature, particularly when it comes to all things related to sleep, these were a really great purchase.
