  • Smooth, Crisp
    Verified Purchase
    Option: King, White

    I've been looking for smooth, crisp, old-fashioned percale sheets for so long. These are everything I've been wanting. They are just like the ones I remember from my childhood. They almost crackle when you unfold them. They're NOTHING like the flimsy, limpy, hot sateen ones you see everywhere now. A high thread-count does NOT mean crisp. You can buy 1000 thread-count and you get "limp". Percale with a 300 thread-count like these sheets is absolutely perfect. It's a nice, dense, smooth weave with a beautiful crispness. I got the white-on-white color in king-size. The fitted sheet fits a very thick mattress easily. The flat sheet is huge. The pillowcases fit king-size pillows with a generous amount left over to show the pretty design on the end. Wash the sheets and pillowcases by themselves in cold or warm water with a minimum amount of detergent and NO fabric softener. Fabric softener puts a film on the sheets and eventually changes the actual texture of the threads. If your machine has an extra rinse cycle, use it. Dry them on a delicate setting and take them right out as soon as the dryer stops. Better yet, hang them outside in the fresh air for a heavenly smell. I got rid of all of my old sheets and will be ordering additional sets of these beauties.

    Option: King, Taupe

    I love crisp cool sheets and they are harder to find. So many sheets are limp and warm no matter the thread count or the cost. For me, these percales are great. Yes, they are crisp,cool and silky smooth. They sound and feel starched and I think they feel fabulous. I run away fast when I hear a sheet described as soft instead of smooth. Dry the flat sheet by itself, the fitted sheet by itself and then the pillowcases. It doesn't take any more time and it cuts down on the wrinkles by not having so much in the dryer at one time. I dry all my sheets this way. I also keep a clean tennis ball in my dryer and that helps with wrinkles also. Take sheets out of the dryer as soon as the cycle is finished. If you have trouble sleeping when you are too warm then these sheets help keep you cooler. I have paid twice as much for percales. These are a good buy>

  • THE BEST SHEETS YOU WOULD EVER SLEEP ON!
    Option: King, Blue

    I love these sheets as much as I have loved all the embroidered and lace percale sheets I have purchased at Overstock. I gave my queen size sheets to my daughter because we purchased a king size mattress. I had 4 sets of embroidered and lace percale sheets from Overstock for a period of 3 years. They were still in great and perfect shape. This is the reason I returned to Overstock to purchase my new sets of king size percale sheets. They are so crisp when you wash them. Just reminds me of the fresh smelling and crisp sheets I grew up with. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!!! The people who complain about these sheets being wrinkly and crisp after washed, it is because they do do not know what 100% cotton percale is. Besides, ALL 100% cotton fabrics wrinkle when washed. This is the reason, polyester was developed into fabrics...to get rid of wrinkles. Polyester is a term often defined as “long-chain polymers chemically composed of at least 85% by weight of an ester and a dihydric alcohol and a terephthalic acid”. It is a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked by ester groups. OK, I really do not like sleeping or resting my body against a fabric with this component. If you want limp, wrinkle free sheets, that is what you get. I wash my percale sheets in either cold or warm water. Most of the time, I just lay them over my railing to dry. My mother used to hang them on a clothesline. Other times, I dried them in the delicate cycle of the dryer. I just fluff them up and fold them. I do not iron them. The fitted sheet stretches out when placed on the mattress and it doesn't show because of everything else on top. The pillow cases do eventually stretch out and so does the flat sheet. Since my flat sheet is under the comforter, I just fold the sheet over it at the top and it looks fine. In other instances, when I'm expecting company or I am in the mood, I have ironed just the pillowcases and only the top folding part of the flat sheet that shows. I WOULD NEVER BUY OR SLEEP IN ANY OTHER SHEETS BUT PERCALE 100% COTTON SHEETS!

    These sheets met my expectations. I didn't expect a purchase from this site to meet my standard of "Excellent" quality (for example, I've found many little threads that clearly came from this sheets, which ideally wouldn't occur); however, they are still "Good" quality (these sheets are by no means falling apart and I can't even see any imperfections). I think the value is excellent for the price I paid, especially since I got free shipping. These are crisp sheets, which is what I understood I would be getting from percale (I'm no expert on sheets though). I do not find them scratchy or otherwise objectionable in any way. I wish they were wrinkle-free, because I refuse to iron my sheets, but they weren't advertised to be wrinkle-free so can't deduct points for that. They really aren't even that bad - I would say pretty standard amount of wrinkling and basically none of the pillowcases. If you put them on right away you can hardly tell, except at the top edge of the flat sheet which you could easily iron in a few seconds if it bothered you. Comes with fitted sheet (fits my 11 inch mattress well), flat sheet, and two pillowcases. Note it does not include the covers for the shams shown in the current picture (at least not in the full size), in case that's misleading to anyone. Classic white color and I got the white detail too as I didn't want it to be too obvious. Very happy with the purchase.

    These sheets have the quality of Italian-made sheets I have bought. They are well-made, with tight seams. The pockets are quite deep - I have a 17-inch mattress, and no problem fitting the sheets on. The embroidery is neat and even, with no trailing threads. Ultimately, they are that wonderful creation of 100% cotton percale, crisp and with a texture that will become soft over time. Yes, they do wrinkle - they are _not_ a cotton/polyester no-iron blend. They are 100% cotton, which means you either have to mostly dry them, then take them right out of the dryer and put them on the bed - or you have to iron them. But if this is the texture you're looking for, you know what wonderful sheets the proper care will get you.

    Option: Cal King- Blue | Full, Taupe

    These sheets are so comfortable to sleep on. They wash nicely though wrinkle badly but that do smooth out once on the bed. My only complaint is they needed another inch or two of cotton to fit bed well. By mid week the bottom sheet is riding up the corners.

  • Love these sheets!
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Queen, White

    These sheets are similar to what our mother used to buy in the 60's: crisp, cotton, cool sheets that do not hug your body. My sister and I have been looking for them for years. They are, in my opinion, the perfect cotton sheets. Some of the other reviews say they are noisy however I would not call them noisy, they are just not the sateen style that are super quiet. And they do not mold to your body like sateen does. In fact, that is exactly what I love about them. After the first wash (always wash before sleeping on them), they are simple perfection. As a side bar, these sheets are healthier for you as they easily absorb moisture that you emit during the night where sateen tends to repel moisture. I became a linen fanatic 10 or so years ago so am always on the hunt for the perfect cotton sheets. These are a WINNER!

    I purchased these many years ago for a queen bed and they were awesome, got some more a few years later for our new king and they were complete crap. The most recent set were paper thin and had no heft or body. I really wish they had not changed as the original set were my perfect set of sheets.

  • Finalloy--Cool Crisp Sheets!
    Verified Purchase
    Option: King, White | Queen, Taupe

    I recently moved to Arizona from Seattle and quickly discovered that all of our sheets--most of them microfiber with high thread count were too hot except one set which is percale. I then realized that percale sheets with a lower thread count were what I needed (I did a LOT of research) and then discovered they are very hard to find these days. When I was growing up these were the only kind of sheets there were. I am happy to say I found what I need in these sheets!!! I ordered a different set also from Overstock first and they are OK but not exactly what I wanted--not truly crisp and cool--so I decided to try these--PERFECT. In reading the reviews on these sheets I had to smile at the comments about wrinkling--obiously there are a lot of people that don't realize wrinkling is the nature of the fabric--like linen clothes--they wrinkle. Give me wrinkles any day!! These sheets are crisp and cool!!! I also saw one person commented these are 'thin'---they do not seem thin to me. Anyway--I love them and will be ordering more!!

  • Great old fashioned percale
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Full, Taupe | Queen, Sage

    There is just nothing that beats old fashioned percale sheets, especially on a hot summer night. I have my mom's and grandmother's old sheets, but they are wearing thin. I needed sheets for the guest bedroom, found these, and took my chances they were just like my old percale ones. The greatest compliment was when my guest slept on them, asked me the next morning what kind of sheets they were, I said percale, and she said she LOVES them, they're so crisp. Mind you, I hadn't sprinkled them and used a dry iron like my mom did in the old days, nor will I. I don't mind some wrinkles out of the dryer, and they come out with use or with folded storage good enough to please me. Bright white, crisp, cool on a hot night, I'm very pleased to still find good old fashioned percale sheets. And the embroidery adds an elegant touch. Thank you, overstock.com.

    I thought this old fashioned like percale was a thing of the past. I never thought I'd be able to experience it again. Then, these sheets came and I still wasn't sure about my purchase until they came out of the washer. They were talking to me...crispy noises! Out of the dryer, more crispy noises! I climbed in for a nap to experience them...and they are fabulous! The pillowcases need a few more inches in length but that's a minor complaint. These are true, real, very high quality crispy percale!

    I have been looking for crisp sheets for awhile now. The ones I presently have on the bed are silky, flimsy, and can be rolled into a ball the size of an orange. We hate them. I think they're Egyptian cotton. We found out that the crispiness we were looking for are in percale sheets. I ordered 2 sets of sheets--one king percale for one bed and I couldn't find percale for the CalKing bed, so I ordered 100% cotton. Not as nice and a little soft. We do not like soft sheets. We like the feel of climbing into a fresh, crisp bed. These were perfect. I would recommend them to anyone who likes crispiness.

  • Not great but better than most
    Verified Purchase
    Option: King, White

    If you are looking for "Grandma Sheets", give up. They don't exist anymore. If you will consider settling for a good-looking, breathable cotton sheet that feels crisp and not slimy, these might make you happy. Yes, the embroidery wrinkles after washing which is to be expected. It's the nature of the beast and a given. A few minutes with a steam iron pretties up the cases and flat sheet's top hem if you just can't sleep otherwise. Yes, the fabric is perhaps 50% thinner than percale used to be. The white on white set allows you to see your hand inside the pillowcase which may mean they will wear out more frequently than in the past. The size of both sheets and pillowcase is ample even after washing and drying on high heat. (Would love to be able to dry things outside again but that's a no-no in this community.) The bottom line is that this sheet set is a well-fitting, reasonably priced 100% cotton percale with a crisp, cool hand and an acceptable comfort rating. The jury is out on how long they will last.

    These are the sheets you've been looking for. The crisp cool sheets from the past. These are not the limp sheets that bloop over your body. They are the kind that tent over you and are of a bit thicker fabric. They are probably the kind that your grandma had...back in the 1960s.There is also enough of the sheet. It fits the mattress very well and does not creep up the sides of the mattress with the fitted sheet. The flat sheet has enough fabric for both of us in our queen sized bed. If you've been looking for the sheets from the past, and you're thinking percale and crisp...You have finally found your answer. Yes, do wrinkle, but they are so worth it. These are the ones you've been looking for. Finally! 😄

  • Exactly what I wanted!
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Queen, Rose

    I've been looking forever for cool, crisp sheets - like the ones my mother had, and not only do these fit the bill, they are well priced! The only difference between these and Mom's are that they're a little thinner, but they still seem like they'll last a good long time. Some other reviewers commented on the odor when first received. I ordered one set in November, and another in January. No issues whatsoever in November's -- they were fine. The ones I just received in January had a strong chemical smell and I washed them 3 times before I was satisfied they're OK. (That's why I dropped my rating from 5 to 4 stars.) Haven't slept on them yet, but if there's still a lingering problem, I think it can be resolved with another couple of washes. They wrinkle a fair amount, but that hasn't bothered me. If you have a really deep mattress, you may want to check measurements. I have an iComfort, which is memory foam and therefore not as deep as a pillow-top and the bottom sheet fits well. Pillowcases are probably a little smaller than I'm used to, but are adequate on standard sized pillows. Frankly, I'm so pleased to finally have found sheets that feel cool and crisp that the issues I've found are inconsequential. Witness the fact I ordered a second set.

    I have been looking for cotton percale sheets like these. They are like the ones we had when I was growing up. If you don't want to iron sheets, or aren't okay with wrinkled ones, then these sheets are not for you. If you want crisp, cotton percale sheets that do not cling to you, then these are the sheets for you. I'm going to buy more.
