Have contunued to purchase all our linen from Overstock.com due to the excellent quality of all Egyption Cotton Sets of thread count over 1000. I needed larger pillow cases to match my prior purchase of sheets from Overstock.com and was pleased to find this set of oversize pillow cases to fit our large pillows. Once you buy and use any of these 1000 to 1200 thread count egyptian cotton linen you will never settle for anything less. The price is right and comfort for my bed where we all spend 25% to 33% of our day is worth spending a little extra to me. Overstock.com makes the savings and value make me feel great the other 75 plus percent of my day.
I have been searching for YEARS for a set of sheets that are heavy, thick and have that crispy feel to them. My search is finally over and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I purchased the 1500 thread count for my sheets and the 1200 thread count for my pillow cases (they didn't have the pillow cases in my color at 1500) and I LOVE THEM. Just ordered another set!!!!
Okay, the fabric is thick, but although it's 1200 thread count, they are rough after washing. Very dissappointing...considering the price and all...I don't have any idea what the other reviewers are talking about when they said that these are soft. I don't get it...Another pillowcase to use in decorating because I'm not going to put my head on these...just sayin'
I first bought these sheets over 8 years ago. When I upgraded from a Queen to a King 6 years ago, I had to have them for the new bed, too. These sheets are amazingly comfortable and last for years with regular washing. 6 years later, I just had to order my first replacement set for the bed we sleep in every night. Thanks, Overstock, for carrying such an outstanding product!!!
I am still shocked by how much these shrink on cold, delicate settings in both washer and dryer. Temperature was set to low and most products I buy do not shrink. Thus, if you expect longevity, unless the shrinking stops, these will not accomplish that for you and the price is entirely out of line with the product I expected.
I bought the sheets & then the extra pillowcases. These do not feel like high tc sheets at all. They are just ok. I ordered Taupe color & they are a fairly dark brown. It's a nice color & I was pleasantly surprised, as I was hoping they would be darker. Helps to read the reviews. But, they are not as heavy as they should be for a 1200 tc sheet. They do wash & dry very nicely with very little wrinkling if taken out of the dryer right away. Did not shrink at all. But, like I said. Not the quality I expected for a high tc.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color much darker than pictured..ordered Taupe
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Do not feel like high tc sheets
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very good
I did not have any issues so far with the pillow cases but I did with the sheet set, so I'm pasting my review from them here. My husband and I love heavy thick cotton sheets, and although these are not so thick, they were soft and smooth and comfortable the first time we used them after the first wash. But in a couple of days my side of the bed had little pills (I must flail more than my husband does) which I was able to shave off with a regular razor. I was hoping after another wash they would no longer pill up, but this time the other side is doing it. I bought two sets, I will be returning them and keep looking for heavier and smoother cotton sheets.
I really loved the charcoal color of the sheets and pillow cases but unfortunately I am back on the market for new bedding. They are so rough and not soft at all. I thought maybe they needed to be worn in because of the high thread count but after 4 months of weekly washing and fabric softener they are still have the same coarse feeling. The weird thing is, the duvet from the same company and thread count is fine, its not excellent but I am keeping it.
Ordered the teal and am surprised at the difference in the color shown and the actual color. Not a bad teal, matches some of the teal bedclothes that I own. However, I was anticipating the very deep blue green that was shown not the muted, dusky turquoise (?) that I received. May keep due to price and quality, but haven't quite decided....
I bought these as they were advertised as oversized and I needed larger pillowcases to fit my Queen Tempurpedic pillows. They are larger as advertised although they have shrunk a bit on washing they still fit. Fabric is very good quality and heavy duty. Only thing I don't like is they are brushed and cat hair sticks to them really badly.
These sheets were touted as very heavy and thick but they are not. I prefer a sheet fabric that is heavy, thick and almost stiff. These sheets are just average weight with too much sheen. So, if you're looking for sheets that are almost too heavy to carry to the washing machine, try another brand. I don't think they are truly 1200 thread count.
Like the sheets I am also returning without opening, this product was a waste of time ordering and returning. It would have saved us both if single ply was listed in the description.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I suppose it matched. I did not bother to find out
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Single ply as opposed to double
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Misleading
