I have about 10 pairs of 1500 sheets I bought from you guys over the years, but I just bought a new bed and a new size so I had to have more sheets. I don't know what these are but they are not 1500. My old ones feel better than these. They and not the thick feel I am used to brand new. They fit good on a large sorta way. The color is very nice. They wash good. But something is missing here. They don't feel like 1500 count sheets. That's the best way I can describe them. Maybe a 800 count on a good day. I'll keep them, but I am real scared about buying more. Where is quality control Overstock?
We have purchased sheets from Overstock in the past and were very pleased with them and their service. However, this time was totally different. While the sheets were very thick, they did not fit our queen size bed properly. In other reviews from customers, it was stated that they were "oversized". We attempted to put the fitted sheet on the bed. When we went to put the last corner on, it obviously did not fit. Applying moderate pressure to fit the sheet, the seam ripped in my hand. I was shocked and disappointed. To pay the amount for the sheets that we received only to have inadequate sewing on the seams is very disappointing. I will be even more cautious when buying sheets in the future. These sheets will not fit a pillow-top queen mattress. Not even close.
Quality: seems very well-made. Washed before using, and no pilling or loose threads showed up anywhere, and did not notice any loss of color. The color i chose was plum, and is very rich, almost an aubergine / eggplant. I was expecting them to be a bit more on the royal purple shade of plum based on the picture, but i am not disappointed. Packaging: shipping packaging was fine, but the package the sheets were in was ripped - not a big deal - i inspected for any damage or dirt and there was none. The sheets themselves: description states that the fitted sheet will fit up to 18" mattress: we have a pillow-top mattress with a pretty thick quilted mattress protector - and the fitted sheet is almost too big, so much so that I am wondering if it were, in fact, meant for a king-size bed. I can work around this though, and also know that if i ever choose to add a feather-bed or something i should still have room for it with these sheets. I have in the past ordered sheets that are meant for bigger mattress heights but they fell short, these particular sheets I ordered are much bigger than expected, at least the fitted sheet is. The fitted sheet has elastic (good elastic, too) all around the sheet, not just at the corners. These sheets are VERY heavy. they are the heaviest sheets i have ever purchased, even heavier than any flannel sheet or high thread count egyptian cotton sheets. I can see the top sheet being warm enough to use without a blanket depending on the weather. We live in northeastern Ohio and go through all of the weather extremes up here, so they should be good for year-round use. Being of a higher thread count (1500) they feel almost like silk or satin but without the high level of slippery-ness you get with satin sheets. Because of the weight and quality of them, i would be shocked if they ever show any serious signs of wear or thinning. Care: Instructions state wash delicate cycle cold water and dry on low heat....and that is how i washed them and used liquid fabric softener. Stayed soft and comfortable after their first wash, and like i said, i did not notice any loss of color upon the first washing. Be aware, you are instructed to dry on low heat, and these sheets took FOREVER to dry on that setting. Had to put the fitted and top sheet through 3 drying cycles before i was satisfied that they were dry. Overstock.com shipping was fast and free, and I have been pleased so far with their service, and am happy with these sheets. For the price, they're worth every penny.
Have a 17"" queen had to fight so hard to put the last corner of the fited sheet on that i heard a rip. Washed one time and went to put them back on bed and once again, got to the last corner but this time it riped the seam wide open. So there goes a half of week of my pay check for junk!
So far we love them, they are very heavy so maybe to much for summer also I washed them a few times as they are pretty stiff, have only had them a couple of weeks but they fit the matress very well, hopefully they will keep their shape and not stretch or rip.
These sheets are the heaviest sheets i have ever touched in my life. They are HEAVY and thick! They are no exactly soft right out of the package. What we experience in high quality hotels is good sheets that have been washed multiple times to achieve such softness we expect out of the package. I have not washed them yet, but given experience with other linen, i trust all the previous reviews that the fabric will get softer with every wash. Definitely happy with my investment. These will last for years!
These sheets are extremely comfortable and I love the density of the fabric. Unfortunately though the fitted sheet started ripping in the corners after the second wash and now a little over a year later every corner is ripped and there is a massive tear across the top. These sheets were quite expensive and I expected a much higher quality and durability for the price.
I bought 1500 TC from Overstock 10 years ago. Actually I bought 2 sets to alternate at each washing. They have been so fantastic and even now so many years later they have NO pills and remain silky smooth. But eventually the edges wore (like the cuffs on a shirt) and I dreaded replacing them, certain I would never really be able to find the same quality. But guess what- I think my new 1500 TC from Overstock are the exact brand as those from 10 years ago! Be aware these sheets are heavy. I can't wash my Cal King set all at one time, I split the load. If you like quality these are worth the small amount more. I did purchase the 650 TC for my second home and they are nice but not even close to the same feel as these. And no, I am not a shill for O, just relieved to get a good quality product!
I've never owned sheets with this much thread count and didn't realize how thick the material would be. I adore the softness and durability of these awesome sheets. These sheets will last a very long time, so worth the reasonable price.
So I thought I could edit on a previous post about 1000TC sheets I had bought to say that they ended up pilling, but I couldn't. I had previously bought the Egyptian cotton 1000 TC - they pilled after about the 3rd wear. I wash my sheets every 2 weeks - and after putting them back on the bed for the 3rd time, they began to pill. Not a happy customer. But moving on to these sheets - they are wicked heavy, and thick and gorgeous. This is exactly what I was looking for when I thought that the 1000TC sheets would be (based on a previous purchase from another company). So I guess 1500 TC is the way to go. I have used them twice and so far they seem to be holding up. They do come out the wash wrinkled, but who cares! You iron them out with your hand, and you cover them up with the comforter or duvet. Only you will see them right. I love them and would definitely buy another set when I need them. To pay the extra is honestly worth it.
I would love to give these sheets a 5 star rating as I love how thick they are, the stitching is well done and the color is holding up well, but I can't. While they are over all great sheets, the fact is they don't fit properly. I've had them for just over 4 months now and when I got them, they were fairly snug on my 12 inch mattress. As time has gone by, they have shrunk in the wash and it's a stretch to get the fitted sheet on.
I was so looking forward to sleeping in luxury, what I ended up sleeping in was burlap. I grudgingly give these sheets two stars based on the deep purple color and the thickness of the sheet. However, they were the most scratchy sheets I have ever purchased, in this case I guess the higher thread count just gives more threads to scratch! After three washes they are no softer. These are going back.
These sheets are very thick and will last you a life time. The more you wash them, the softer they get. I also noticed that even though they are thick, they stay very cool. I am a "hot sleeper" and these seem to keep me cool. They have a luxurious feel to them. My husband and I have had them for two months now and we still say "ahhh" every time we go to bed. It has become a bit of a joke. I travel for work and sleep in hotels all over the U.S. In fact, I recently passed 700 nights with a major hotel brand. These sheets are better than any I have ever slept on.** And traveling for work has become less fun knowing the best sheets are waiting for me at home. **The Sofitel in Chicago has (or had) amazing sheets, but it has been a while since I have stayed there. I need to go back to compare the sheets. ;)
I ordered these sheets over 10 years ago on Overstock. They finally wore out. Initially, I couldn't find them again on Overstock. When I saw these available again, I purchased another set. They are very thick. It takes about 10 washings before they start to feel really smooth and luxurious. Then, you won't want to sleep on anything else.
