The Good: Amazing feel, Affordable, Easy to clean
The Bad: Could use more pillowcases . . .
The Basics: Stylistically, I am happier with the Gray color JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set than I was with the Sage, but it is the same great product (just a different color)!
When my wife and I first moved to Michigan, it was the first time we had a real bed to share and I eagerly bought her a set of Sage Green sheets (reviewed here!) from JC Collections that we absolutely loved. Well, what I did not know when I reviewed those was that they were stain resistant, color fast, and exceptionally comfortable, but no match for the sharp claws of a rapidly accelerating (or decelerating) Siberian Husky! Shortly after we moved, there came a time the topsheet was exposed and our hundred pound Siberian Husky leapt up onto the bed and accidentally cut a hole in the sheet! Well, for the holidays, I decided to replace the sheets, which was nice because my mother-in-law replaced our boxspring and mattress with something exceptionally comfortable! For that, we went with the JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set in Gray.
Like the sage green, these are the softest, most silky feeling sheets I have ever experienced. They slide over the body like satin and they are delightful to get in between each night! The Gray, which is a dark charcoal gray which pretty much matches our laptop computers, JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. The entire set perfectly fit over the mattress (for the fitted sheet) and the mattress and both of us while in the bed for the flat sheet.
The Gray color is a darker color, but they do not stain. When anything gets on them, these sheets discolor almost instantly, so there is no cheating with trying to pull off when these sheets are clean or dirty! This is actually handy for me when I am taking pieces of the set out of the dryer; any discoloration indicates they need more drying time, which makes my job very easy! They are exceptionally easy to clean. In a cold load with other light colors, we have found it is very easy to get out any stains that get on the JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set and tumble dried, they do come out smooth, silky, and relatively unwrinkled.
The Gray JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set includes only two pillowcases. The pillowcases easily fit over our extra stuffed pillows, however it seemed strange to me that the sheet set would come with only two. After all, if one has a queen sized bed, aren’t they likely to have more than one person in the bed and thus need more pillows and pillowcases? That is, at the very least, the case with my wife and I and we have mismatched pillowcases now (the ones from our green set are still absolutely fine!) when the two that come in the JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set are used in conjunction with our “leftovers.”
For incredible comfort, easy cleaning, and a pretty stylish color, the Gray JC Collections 1500 Thread Count 100% Egyptian Cotton Queen Size Sheet Set is a wonderful way to go!
