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.
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!
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.
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.
Items arrived before scheduled date; washed and placed on bed and I am one happy customer - perfect for my bed and the deep pockets are perfect - no more fighting to place the sheets on the bed, and the perfect amount of softness for me!
These are well-made, percale cotton sheets, at the highest thread count you can really get with this type of cotton weave. They are not soft (at all), and although I know they'll soften with washing, my problem with these sheets is that dust and hair seems to stick to the weave. I can't get over having lint-y sheets and have retired this set to the linen closet, possibly forever.
Can someone describe the linen color vs. the ivory color? I'm looking for a tannish/creamy color, but not yellowy.hudsongrl on Mar 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello hudsongrl, we appreciate your inquiry. The ivory has more of the yellow tone. The linen is more of the cooler tone (tan-ish/creamy tone). We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 24, 2014

This is a little confusing. Under product details it says it's a top sheet, bottom & pillowcase, but then you have optional pillowcase separates in the title too. Can you clarify that the twin XL comes with one pillowcase or does it have to be purchased separately?jmaxselfa on Jun 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
