Crisp,cool sheets like Grandma's
 from Va.,  Jul 27, 2013

These are the classic old fashioned, cotton percale sheets. Percale is meant to be crisp and has more body than sateen. If you're looking for something soft, then these are probably not for you. Percale does soften some with repeated washing, and will last awhile if fabric softener is used sparingly, and even longer if line dried. Line drying also reduces wrinkles with percale, unlike most other things. Don't spin them too dry; wash them on permanent press cycle or even delicate to avoid this. Give them a few shakes and hang out. They'll smell fresher and you'll save energy. Some of the stiffness will go away as they dry. Iron, if you feel like it. I sometimes iron them for the guest bed after spraying with lavender water, and occasionally even for ourselves, when I'm not too busy.;) It's not difficult if folded properly, and our guest bed is king size. I only do along the top 12-16 inches of the flat sheet, [the part that shows when the sheets are folded down] and the fitted sheet stretches enough, it's not needed. Pillowcases are just fun, a no-brainer. These are classic cotton percale, like your classic oxford shirt. If you don't want wrinkles, they'll need ironing. If you're looking for soft, silky sheets, then you want sateen, not percale. [or silk!] If you just want easy care and comfort is secondary, then go for a blend, like poly-cotton. If you want only good looks and something that'll make you sweat, then try microfiber. [!] Learn the difference between different kinds of sheets and you will not be as likely to be disappointed.

Exactly what I wanted
 from Washington, DC,  Sep 27, 2013

These sheets are perfect! They have extra deep pockets (yay!). The pockets are so deep, that I actually have extra room and don't have to pull to near-seam-ripping to get them over the mattress. Yay again! The fabric is very nice and high quality. I always wash my sheets in HOT water, and these sheets are holding up quite well. Percale vs Sateen: Percale is my personal sheet preference, and this is why I ordered these. If you are not familiar with these two different styles/fabrics, please pay attention. A lot of folks are complaining in the reviews about the feel of the sheets. However, these are perfect percale sheets! I think those complaints are arising, because those folks would prefer sateen sheets. Percale is a crisper sheet. These are still quite soft and very, very nice. But they are intended to be crisp. That's why I like percale. It is what I desire in a sheet. Sateen sheets are silkier in feel. They are more like butter. I don't like buttery sheets (but lots of folks do). If you want "buttery", order sateen sheets (not these!). If you want crisp, order these. If you are a percale person, these sheets will not disappoint!

Very pleased
 from CA,  Sep 15, 2013

I was concerned about ordering this product because the other reviews said that the sheets were so uncomfortable. Straight out of the package, the sheets were very scratchy and uncomfortable. But I washed once with hot water and dried on high heat and now the sheets are really comfortable. The fitted sheet is very very deep and covers the large mattress pad easily with room to spare. Very happy with the purchase. Minus one star because the "slate blue" color was much darker than expected - almost looks black.

Really deep pockets!
 from Staten Island, NY,  Jul 25, 2013

I love the size of the sheets. The texture is not as soft as I thought it would be, being percale but I think it may be that the sizing wasn't fully out after two washings. The color is good. I made a mistake in my first order and thought I could substitute different size pillow cases. I found out that what they mean is that you have the option of ordering additional pillow cases of another size. I was able to return the extra pillow cases, since a phone call to the 800 number only continued my confusion. On the whole, I am satisfied with the product and the service. I have ordered another set.

To early to tell
 from Chicago, Illinois,  Jul 10, 2013

The color of the sheets was as advertised and do look very nice. However, the sheets are not as comfortable as I expected them to be because of the thread count. They are very deep pocket. I have a California King bed with a pillowed mattress and the sheets are actually a bigger fit. If you want a snug fir for your sheets, these are not for you.

These sheets seem fine, but the ivory color is more yellow than ivory. I will return for another color.

Percale!!
 from northwest NJ,  Dec 29, 2013

Those of you who enjoy percale sheets will love these. They are cool and crisp as percale sheets should be not warm and soft like sateen sheets. It has become difficult to find percale in recent years and I was thrilled to find these.

Great sheets
 from Ashburn, VA,  Oct 22, 2013

My husband and I have been searching for nice crisp cool sheets and we've finally found them! I was very impressed that the fitted sheet has a nice wide band of elastic around it and the fitted sheet fit easily around my very deep mattress. I intend to purchase a second set!

Sheets are classy, but ...
 from Jacksonville, Florida,  Oct 4, 2013

I wouldn't recommend the sheet set to a friend only because the fitted sheet bunches up when I'm sleeping. Each morning I have to tug & pull it taught, lifting the mattress to make it fit smoothly again.I have a 4" memory foam on top of my mattress and it still doesn't fit snug enough. The sheets are wonderfully comfortable and the color (taupe) is very rich.

Deep pockets
 from Rensselaer, NY,  Sep 27, 2013

I love the extra deep pockets on the fitted sheet. I have a sleep number so it is difficult to get regular sheets to fit-these are wonderful!

Not soft like I thought
 from Mamaroneck, NY,  Jul 23, 2013

Jury is still out on these. They weren't soft at all. In fact, I actually questioned whether they were really 100% cotton. I washed them before I put them on the bed and then I googled egyptian cotton sheets and it said you have to give them a chance and that they get softer. I washed them a second time and they seemed to soften up a bit. I'm really just lazy and hate to return things so I'm sticking with them for now. Let's see.

Wonderful soft percale sheets!
 from Phoenix, AZ,  Feb 7, 2014

Washed these sheets before using and they came out of dryer wrinkle free. They are soft, comfortable and cool. Love them! Would like to order again, but I do not need more sheets!

The hard to find 'crisp' sheet
 from Massachusetts,  Jan 14, 2014

I am always on the hunt for a crisp sheet that 'snaps' and rustles when you move it, like the sheets of my childhood. This is pretty darn close to that. I got the white, so I can't say if the colors have the same feel or not. The pockets are extremely deep. The quality is excellent: the seams on the pillow case and at the flat sheet edge are double stitched, and the fabric is light weight, but seems to be of high quality. These sheets wrinkle a lot when washed, so if you are looking for a soft, satiny, wrinkle free sheet, these are not for you. But if you want the coolness and snap of a crisp cotton sheet, give these a try. I have not owned them for long, so I cannot speak to the longevity of the fabric.I hope Overstock is able to keep these in stock. I'd like to order more after I 'recover' from this purchase.

If you want wrinkle free sheets, these are not for you. But if you like sheets that will last for a few years without shrinking or wearing these are a good buy.

Wonderful, CRISP percale
 from Eatontown, NJ,  Feb 17, 2014

Love these sheets. The corners on the fitted sheet are a step above the traditional... elastic band lined pocket corners, these fit your bed PERFECTLY. Top sheet and cases are gorgeous... Just make sure to get these out of the dryer ASAP

Flat Sheet Not Wide Enough
 from New York, NY,  Feb 5, 2014

I bought these because of the extra deep pocket fitted sheet, assuming that the flat sheet would also be over-sized. It is not. My mattress is only 13.5", yet the flat sheet is not wide enough to tuck on the sides. It is super long, though. Very disappointed since they were rather expensive. I can't figure out why they would pair a fitted sheet that can fit mattresses up to 24" with a flat sheet not even large enough to properly fit a 13.5" mattress.

The Best Sheets
 from Venice, Florida,  Jan 28, 2014

These sheets are 475 threads per inch pure percale cotton sheets that breathe, and are simply the best I have found. I have tried those 3 times the thread count and some less, not any compare to these. They are comfortable to sleep on, your body doesn't slide like on sateen sheets, and I get a great night's sleep. I can hardly wait to buy more, thay are the best. What more need be said?

Percale Sheet Set
 from Ft. Worth, Tx.,  Jan 14, 2014

I was looking for old fashioned heavy percale sheets. These are an improvement over most sateen sheets on the market. They do have a nice cool feel. Also, they are very deep, and can easily handle an overstuffed mattress or mattress and topper combination. The only reason I did not rate them as excellent, is that I would like them to be a little heavier in weight.
