I became a "sheet snob" just a few years ago. I have paid $$$$ for one queen top sheet in Egyptian cotton percale, 406 tc.. I cannot believe the deal on these! Let me tell you about the sheets and how wonderful they are... These are the highest thread count I have ever found in a 100% cotton single thread Egyptian Percale (500 and above, you're getting sateen, which I despise). What does this mean? High quality. These will get softer with every washing. They have a nice hand, are crisp. and are great if you run hot at night. They will last many, many years with proper care and will never pill. They wrinkle, of course. I don't care. The comfort of these delicious sheets is what's important to me. I like my bottom sheet snug, and the 22" fitted sheet is still too deep for my pillow top bed. So I kept the top sheet and pillowcases, and am gifting the bottom sheet to my favorite sister. It'll be a great fit for her platform (single overly thick mattress) bed. She has no idea of what she has been missing out on all these years! I wish Overstock would get more in. Beige was my only option but I would love it in white! Less dye=even softer threads.
