I think it is just a personal preference--I do not like the feel of sateen at all and much prefer "regular" weave. I am glad I looked at the comments--it would have been better for WOOT to be up front about the weave in its description.

Sateen weave has longer threads than regular weave and can snag easily. I often see great prices for them. Not sure they hold up well, so I'm not even tempted to buy them.

Because they are "single ply" which are very thin, cheap feeling

Are these returnable? I've had bad luck with sheets over the past decade with more than one set falling apart after one washing? Thanks

You're right. I saw those on another site which pointed to them. I just ordered those...although I saw these yesterday and waited until now so my most preferable color choices were already sold out. I've purchased many Woots during my membership...just not this time.

has everyone ignored the fact that the pocket on the fitted is only 15 inches deep.Forget everything else that is not deep enough for most pillowtop mattresses.

Duh... "Egyptian cotton" is NOT "cotton fibers manufactured into sheets in Egypt."

I've had French fries made in Alabama and a Belgian waffle made in Utah.

Similar, but not the same.

Boasting a luxurious 600 thread count, these sheets feature a 60/40 blend of Egyptian cotton and have 15-inch pockets.


Those are NOT 100% Egyptian cotton.

People, people. Isn't it more important with who's in bed with you than the sheets you sleep on? would any of you guys like to try out my new sheets?

I just received by queen set in ivory. A little disappointed that each piece is a DIFFERENT shade of ivory. Top sheet, fitted sheet and pillow cases all different shades of ivory. I thought the point of a set was that it would all be the same color and shade.

Just received mine... Colors all match, but these are definitely not queen sheets. At least a foot too wide, probably more like 2 feet...

Packaging says queen but there's nothing on the sheets themselves that says what size they are.

Edit - Just measured, dimensions match the king size. Even the pillow cases are the larger dimension. Yep, got king size sheets in a queen size package.

I'm still eagerly awaiting mine. Fedex says they're resting comfortably in Dallas!

How did I get over 200 Woot purchases?

Update! "In checking, it appears the order did not ship out as it should have. I apologize for that. We unfortunately have none left to have a replacement order sent out to you so a refund has been issued."

So, that's the Woot score for today.
