This product is not what is advertised. The ad says 100% Egyptian Cotton that is "calendared and mercerized." The sheets are made in India with long staple cotton that is calendared, not mercerized. Egyptian cotton is just one type of long staple cotton. If these sheets truly were made of Egyptian cotton the package would reflect that. Also, the calendaring process is inferior to mercerizing. These are not bad sheets, they are just not what is advertised. Buyer beware.

I loved the sheets the first week i received them-very soft and the hem stitch looked grand, but after the first two washes, I could not use these sheets anymore. The pilling was horrible and the sheets had shrunk by a huge amount, I could not fit them on our mattress anymore. sorely disappointed as I loved the colors and felt this was such a good buy initially.
Bad reviews can scare you away and there are so many variations on all these different types of sheet sets offered on overstock that I just had to take the plunge and pick one (well I order a 350 count one too). I'm a 30 something bachelor so I'm not too versed. I just know good comfort and to have nice sheets (thanks Mom). I ordered the grey cali-king set. My bed is a cali-king and is probably is 15+ inches deep. The sheets come in the typical plastic zipper package. The front tag reads "Andiamo Fine Linens, Ispirato en Italia per la casa, 500 thread count, 100% Egyptian Cotton - Single ply yarn, 15" Deep pockets fits mattresses up to 17" The back does read "Made in India" and "...500 threads per square inch" With that said, I tried the sheet over my bed first to check the fit and was happy to see elastic all around and that it fit. I then immediately washed the sheets following the instructions. Although I missed the gentle cycle but will do that moving forward. There was very little lint in the lint screen before and looked no different after. The sheet has a nice sheen that remained after washing. Use some type of fabric softner. I think a few of these complainers don't know how to wash clothes. And bathe your skin before hitting the nice clean sheets. Makes no sense hopping in the bed on clean sheets with your skin from a day of activities. After drying on low heat, you will definitely have to iron the wrinkles out if you're a stickler for that. I'm not. I just wanted to go to bed. The sheets are soft people!...and comfortable. I usually am up late but I was knocked out by 930p and missed the rest of MNF after getting in these sheets. They are not thin and not thick. Just right for me, because I am typically warm. I can probably just sleep in them without a comforter even into the winter months for a little while. No pilling ocurred so far. These are good sheets. Maybe it's helped by my pretty awesome bed and vice versa. You have to take a chance somewhere though. Glad I did. I recommend!
These are great sheets - feel great, very soft. I liked them so much, I ordered another set right after I tried the first set. The only thing I was surprised about was that the stitching is coming undone on the 2nd set on the one side of the fitted sheet after the first washing. I can mend this pretty easily, but am concerned about more issues with the stitching coming undone in the future.
I ordered the queen size sheets in ivory. They are super soft and fit generously over my huge, fat 16'' mattress. I was worried because they don't give the dimensions of the sheets, and my new mattress is huge, but these fit perfectly. The fabric is incredibly soft and has a bit of a sheen. I would highly recommend them.Queen Sheet Dimensions:flat sheet - 90'' x 102''fitted sheet - 60'' x 80''
We ordered the white sheets and so far we have been pleased with our purchase. The quality of these sheets is excellent. We have washed them and they have retained their softness, form and size. I can't really comment on the wrinkle quality, b/c it seems to me all sheets wrinkle once you dry them. The wrinkling of these seems average.What I personally look for in sheets is softness, and these are perfect. They are not stiff or scratchy. The quality is excellent for the price. We would definitely order these sheets again. In fact, I came back on Overstock to order another set, but they are currently out of stock of the white king sheets. . but as soon as they are back in stock, I will be ordering another set.
The worst sheets I have ever purchased. I spoke to an expert ( a woman who owned a high end store selling Anicini sheets) that told me that 100% Egyptian cotton with a thread count of 500 is the way to go....but after one washing; the sheets have pilled. They pick up every particle i.e. hair; lint, etc and it sticks. They are so soft, they have no shape and bunch up, even at the top when you fold over the sheet. They have the texture of flannel sheets so with Egyptian cotton sateen finish and a high thread count, this seems completely out of wack. I don't buy sheets often; so when I do; I look for the best that money can buy. I am now convinced the only way to buy is to go with a reputable brand. Yes, they were inexpensive but by the description I should expect them to be good sheets. I made my husband take back expensive sheets from *** to buy these sheets. I f I could, I would return these sheets and invest in something that is truly luxury.
We had these sheets on just a few months (I wash my sheets weekly), & although I liked their biillowy, light feel; my husband cursed all the nits that started popping up. Yes, many, many nits. I was really disappointed with these sheets.
We bought these sheets for our new king size bed. We received them in early August. . Right from the beginning the lower fitted sheet started to get pilly. It is now mid November and we can no longer use them. If we do it is like sleeping on sand. Because there was only a 30 day warranty period Overstock will not refund us our money. They did refund us $$$ though.
The sheets have litlle bumps wear fabric started to wear before even washing them. They won,t stay tucked under the matteres

These sheets were very soft right out of the package. I couldn't wait to sleep on them. I put them in the washer and dryer and when they came out they looked like I've had them for years. The fabric was worn and the stitching was coming apart. But, for whatever it's worth the sheets were still soft. However, still wouldn't recommend them. I'm very disappointed.

i cant say enough about these sheets. i am a very fussy person when it comes to these things, but let me tell u for the money they cant be beat. soft, luxurious made well. i bought three sets for my sister and she loves them as well. another success story for overstock!! congrats.
The sheets were very soft when purchased they felt good to sleep on, when washed again they are rough on the skin from the tiny lint balls that have accumulated.... to be able to use twice is ridiculous. I have bought sheets from overstock in the past and they were great still use them .I will rethink the purchase of sheets from overstock. TammieD

These sheets are thin like tissue paper, After 2 washes, there are nasty rough pills all over them. Not a good buy at all if you have to replace them after 2 washes. Not happy.

I purchased these sheets for myself and my daughter. I recently purchased a new mattress and my sheets don't fit too well because the mattress is ver high, but these sheets fit with plenty of room to spare. They were very soft and comfortable. I washed them as reacommended, they were slightly wrinkled, but once I put them on the bed they were fine. I would recommend these sheets, and have already, to anyone. I am very satisified with this product.
