I thought I was spending so much money for these sheets, but after sleeping on the first set, I bought 2 more - one additional for me, and one set for my sister to enjoy. The sheets are thick but not heavy or hot. I feel like I am getting into fresh sheets every night. It gets hot in San Jose in the summer, but these do not get hot as they are the finest grade of cotton. You spend 7+ hours a night in bed, aren't you worth sleeping on the best sheets you can get? Buy them, enjoy them, the quality of these sheets ensure years of restful and enjoyable nights of sleep.
I have been contemplating purchasing these sheets for months. In talking with my friend (whom actually has purchased several sets of these sheets from O.com) she brought into work a pillow case for me to "feel". I was very impressed -- but still did not purchase for weeks later. I finally took the plunge and hit submit -- I must tell you that these are the BEST sheets I have ever owned. Are they pricey, definitely; however, they are a worth while investment that you will have for years. In addition, my husband, continued to comment on the quality, and "how they feel" several days after they were on the bed.....he doesn't ever notice anything like this! I knew I had a winner here, and now the bar has been set so high, there will be no going back to the 400 thread count sheets. Our bed is like a little piece of heaven, but Beware, it's difficult to get out of it ;) I was so impressed with the quality and "feel" of the sheets that I did not see a need to launder them prior to making the bed. Yep, took them right out of the packaging, right to the bed. I believe the reason I was reluctant to purchase the sheets for so long are some of the reviews -- most of the reviews are definitely high markings; however for me it were those few that kept me from purchasing. It got to the point that I needed new sheets and in looking at the big box stores I wasn't impressed with what they had to offer. Keeping in mind my desire to purchase the 1600 EC sheets. I purchased the entire set along with the extra pillow cases; the queen size and we have the down mattress cover that these fit over perfectly -- so the deep pockets have alot to live up to, and they don't disappoint. This is one of the best purchases I have made through Overstock, the second is the down filled mattress topper . They are lush and smooth -- they have a satin sheen to them because of the tightly worven thread count. If you can afford to purchase, take a leap of faith -- You won't be sorry!
