Isn't all cotton organic? What makes this cotton special?

No, most cotton is sprayed with tons of chemicals to get rid of bugs and other competing plants (including pretty much every piece of clothing you buy). However, in the actual "specs" it says recycled cotton, not organic. And I assume they have no way of sourcing whether the "recycled" cotton is organic or not. I just want to know if it is really soft (like, t-shirt sheet soft), or not.

Can someone break down thread count for me in simple terms? I'm still using my comfy jersey sheets so I have no clue ;)

Does anyone have any sleeping experience with these and on how comfy these are?

The number of threads in one square inch (number in one direction plus the number in the direction perpendicular to that).

Is there any way to confirm whether it is organic (as stated in the title) or recycled (as stated in the specs) or is it both recycled & organic (does that combination even exist?)

At these prices, you can throw two sheets to the wind.... (or something like that).

We goofed on the specs. It's Organic and the specs are updated now. Sorry for the confusion.

Now everyone wish Sarah sweet dreams as she tries to go back to sleep.

All cotton is organic (as is all food, and all biological material). What they mean is only used organic pesticides and fertilizers, instead of synthetic.

Annoys the heck out of me that things are labeled organic... organic refers to the molecular structure of a substance.

Is it me, or does it list only 1 pillowcase per set? That seems unlikely, but can we confirm?

No, cotton is sprayed with pesticides hence when it is organic it is not.

It's the shipping services that have issues with shipping to APO. Not woot. But hey, rabble rabble?

The "Organic" label is a lot shorter than, "We didn't douse our plants in chemicals, or splice their genes, or use artificial nutrient sources; also, we didn't do any of that to our animals..."
What would you prefer? (I really am curious)

And now - to the subject!

How soft and/or durable are these sheets?

Yeah. I now am paranoid that I'm going to get the 296 thread-count sheets. Or the ones where they skipped a few stitches, or whatever other defects that their "incentivized" quality control is omitting.

I'll wait until you guys get sheets from the factory in which Lloyd listens to Darren.

Whew! Only organic pesticides are used on this cotton. It makes me feel safe knowing that my sheets are impregnated with pyrethrum and organophosphates instead of cyfluthrin and dieldrin.

Darn those synthetic pesticides!

Ya'll got any sheet sets that are "un-natural" and non "organic"?

Sweet dreams......

Jackie Believe it is threads per square inch.. the more thread count the softer,I have a 600 count and they are soft. I have to have cal king, so the price of these is the best I have found.

Sorry; the United States Postal Service and Fed Ex is available to send exportable items everywhere in the world. Perhaps a different shipping charge would need to be added, but to exclude Alaska, Hawaii, APO and FPO is a simple cop out because apparently no one wants to go to the trouble to calculate shipping charges through anyone but UPS. Lithium batteries tend to explode at high altitudes, that I understand, but I think sheets are pretty stable, even at 10,000 ft.

So we have someone who wants to swim against the tide of natural language evolution, someone who thinks the concept if organic pesticides is silly, and a pissed off military person (sucks, really, you have my sympathies. If you want, I will order your sheets and mail them to you free if charge. PM me, seriously). Has anyone ever used these sheets? I will only buy if they are really soft.

300 thread count is a bit rough. Like the cheapo sheets you buy at Target. 600 or higher thread count is good and soft.

300 thread count is good if you are going to use these to wet sand your car. Organic cotton...really

+1 for that. Very depressing un-incentivizing writeup.

Does anyone know if these are "sateen" or "percale" weave? Sateen tend to be higher thread count and softer while percale can still be quality at a thread count of 300 but are crisp... If percale, I am in for a set!!!

It's also the "ply". These do not state that they are single ply, so the thread count may actually be significantly lower than 300. For example, if they twist two yarns together and put 150 of those yarns per inch, they can sell it as "300 thread count", even though it's 150 scratchy buggers per inch.

300 Thread Count? What is this peasantry?

It would be more comfortable to sleep on sheets made from 12 grit sandpaper.

Does Woot think we are poor people?

To Woot---

Why don't you guys offer additional pillowcases packages when you offer sheet sets? I have queen sized bed with both king and standard pillowcases. Being able to purchase the additional pillowcases would increase the likelihood of my purchasing a sheet set. I can't be the only person who's thought of this.

No no no, I, a sheet snob, bought many at-the-time-high-thread-count sheets that were 200TC before Y2K, and they were lovely. These days manufacturers exaggerate the thread count in many innovative ways, see the link to "explaining thread count" in someone's post, above. Last time Woot had single-ply 400TC sheets I bought and am amazed at the quality - thick, soft, exactly what I wanted. But today's Woot sheets do not call to me.

Anyone have experience with U.S.-size sheets on European-size mattresses? Specifically, queen size: in U.S., it's 60" wide, but the European is 160cm (63") wide. Probably depends on how high the European mattress is, on whether the fitted queen-size sheet would work.

I find it odd that they will take "organic" cotton and then dye it with man-made chemical dyes. Kinda negates the idea of "organic."

Does that make sense to you? It doesn't make sense to me.

No - all cotton is not organic. Organic cotton comes from non genetically modified plants and does not use fertilizers or pesticides. Organic is also about where/how the crops are planted and rotating them to keep the soil healthy.

If the write up makes you sad, try searching for information about cotton farmers in India. I want to know if this product is somehow contributing to the welfare of real people, or causing misery.
