I purchased 1000tc sheets from a well-known department store in the past, but when I bought a new bed recently was lazy to go out and shop. I thought since it is more convenient to my work schedule (I am a litigation attorney and work very long hours), I decided to shop online. Since I always see the commercials, "at home with the "o", thought I would give it a try. I bought these sheets not expecting the same quality as I had previously from the department store sheets that did not match my new color scheme. I was pleasantly SURPRISED to find that these sheets EXCEEDED my wildest expectations. These were the BEST quality, so smooth and silky. These were EXACLTY as I was hoping and more! I don't have time and don't bother leaving reviews, but this time thought I absolutely needed to say how superb these sheets are and what great quality! Try them and I will say you will LOVE them just as much as I do!
They are very good quality. I got the taupe color. However, they aren't as soft as I thought they would be... I hope the more I wash them, the better they will feel. Other than that they are very sturdy sheets. About washing, you must wash them as the LABEL says! They will not pill or shrink if you wash them correctly. Gentle cycle!! Cold water!
sheets are nice and soft to the touch, seem to be well made. Color is good was well worth the small cost. I had ordered the wrong size by accident and Overstock was so great about sending another one out right away, I really appreciated their great customer service which is unusual these days.
I was pretty excited to receive my first "1000 thread count" sheets. I have heard so much about the quality and I really wanted to treat myself. I wish I had read prior reviews! The sage green color was nice. The sheets fit a thicker mattress, so that was fine. The fabric was very thick, almost like denim. I washed them in cold and the first few nights were fine, although not the AMAZING experience I was hoping for. After about a week, the sheets started to pill. The elastic at one corner kept coming up so I had to tuck the fitted sheet down every night. By the time I washed them, I realized I never wanted to sleep on them again. Although the title says "Egyptian Cotton" these are a poly cotton blend. I was disappointed.
Overall a nice set. I have ordered the 1000 count set from OS before, although it was a different brand. I am wondering how long the thickness will last. After the first wash and dry there was a lot of lint in the dryer screen from the sheets. I am hoping that was just an initial wash artifact. If there is this much lint every time these sheets are washed and dried, they will be threadbare in three months.
I ordered these sheets based on the reviews, both positive and negative. We have a double topper mattress, plus a 2.5 inch Novafoam topper. I have had a hard time getting the sheets to fit! I did a lot of research for sheets. We tend to like the higher end sheets, but I don't like paying retail for them. I priced similar sheets in catalogs and they were all $300-$400. In one catalog, 2 pillow cases cost more than the entire set we see here on Overstock. I am very pleased with these sheets. They have the weight of high end sheets, they fit my bed perfectly. I washed them the same way I wash everything from the bed, on the Bulky/Bedding cycle. They came out of the dryer virtually wrinkle free. It's going to take a few more washes to break the sheets down to their softest, but after one wash, we declared them comfortable enough to put on the bed. If you like high quality, I would give these a try. I wish they had more colors, we got the green and the color is what I was expecting.
I love the sheets. They are heavy/thick enough to be used without any blankets in the summer. The sheets feel smooth and cool. I made a mistake last time and purchased 800 count sheets. I thought it wouldn't make a difference but they felt flimsy compared to these. NOTE: I've never heard of Olympic Queen size sheets. I didn't know they existed. They are larger than the regular queen size sheets. They don't fit as smoothly on the mattress BUT if you have trouble with putting the bottom sheet on, these are much easier to install.
Sheets arrived promptly, 3 days. Color was as advertised. Sheets wash and dry well. The sheets are a blend but still come out wrinkled. I personally prefer an crisply ironed top sheet and pillow case,so wrinkles are not a propblem. Sheets are heavy weight, but still remain quite cool. My husband has sensitive skin and is temperature sensitive, and he loves the sheets. I bought a 2nd set in a different color and was equally pleased with the product.
