5 years ago I purchased 1000 count sheets from Overtsock.com and was very pleased with the product. I washed them many times over the years with only good results. Recently I purchased these new Egyptian Cotton sheets, washed them once in cold water and dried them on low and the seam split open along the top. I don't know if this is a bad batch or not such a good manufacturer ("Luxor Treasures"). Anyway, my money was promptly refunded and I will continue to look for sheets on Overstock.com.
