Earlier this month we posted a deal found in the ebay daily deal store, for the Deluxe 300 Thread Count 100% Cotton Fine Sateen Sheet Sets, now $24.95 (previously $19.99).
We ordered a set of these and since this offer comes around periodically, I thought I would do a quick review.
Delivery: My sheets arrived in less than a week via USPS trackable mail. They did send me notification of when they shipped and they were packaged nicely in the standard zippered fitted bag.
Washing: I washed them in HOT. They came out of the laundry, with none or, no noticeable shrinkage. They were also, relatively wrinkle free after washing and smoothed out easily enough.
Feel: They are soft. If you are the kind that likes crisp sheets, you won't like them. If you like a soft feel, you most defiantly will like the feel.
Pillowcases: The description states that they come with Standard size pillowcases. However, my order of king size sheets came with generous sized king size pillowcases. In fact they drown our flat worn out King sized pillows.
Fitted Sheet: The fitted sheet is supposed to fit a 15″ deep mattress. My mattress is 13″ at it's highest point and about 10″ on the corners. They fit my bed perfectly. I would estimate that they go under the mattress by about 4″. If you have one of those super thick mattress, my guess is, that you will consider the fit adequate, but not great. For my bed, they are perfect and easy to put on.
Top Sheet: The top sheet hangs over the foot of the bed easily 15″ to 18″, there is plenty to tuck in. I had no complaints with the length. Where I did find them slightly skimpy is on the sides. They reach right to the bottom edge of my mattress. Again, if you have a super deep mattress, you may want to pass.
There you have it… If you are in the market for a new set of sheets, these may fit the bill. I'd price compare them to about $50- $60 sheets in the stores. Amazon has what appears to be the same sheets for $35 to $80 depending on size.
While we don't know yet how well they will wear, I don't think they will pill, as they are 100% cotton and not the microfiber cheapies we see on deal so often. They have gone up in price, since my initial posting, to $25 (free shipping). If you aren't in a hurry, you may want to wait, We've posted them for $20 twice this summer, it's possible it they will go back down.
