I had purchased sheets from Overstock approximately 5 years ago. They were 1000 thread count and were of an excellent quality. When it was time for new sheets, I again went to Overstock. My first order was 1000 thread count. The sheets were so thick, I could barely unfold them. Maybe the quality of this product had changed over the years? I returned these and proceeded to order 1500 thread count. Again these sheets were extremely thick, difficult to maneuver and not as soft as I had hoped. Doubting myself, I reread the Overstock reviews and other consumers had washed the sheets and stated they were pleased. I washed them several times and they are still not soft. I would not recommend these sheets. As an individual that enjoys soft, luxurious bedding, this product is misleading and a huge dissappointment. Either the previous reviews have been sleeping on 200 thread count sheets or consumers no longer expect quality.
