I have been purchasing high thread count sheets from Overstock for years. In the past, I have purchased plain Egyptian cotton, the stripe pattern in this set of sheets makes for an interesting change which I like. The colors are sophisticated and the sheets become softer with each washing. A high count thread sheet not only looks better but the price of these sheets is reasonable. In addition, they are durable and retain their good looks after countless washings. I have received many compliments from overnite guests who recognize the quality of sheets which I've purchased from OS..
