Initially felt great, after one wash we’re so gross
Felt so soft initially, then I washed them and they were so rough!!! After a few months and a few washes, two faded big patches on each side where we lay at night & worn thin. I always followed the wash instructions but they still got cotton balls/ cotton muck on them with was like mud when wet - impossible to remove.
Purchased in March - returned today in July! Will never buy KOO products again considering these were not cheap!!!
Purchased two KS 800 thread sets. They were normally $200, on sale for $89. They felt great until I washed them. One set is has shrunk and feels thin. The other set feels scratchy and uncomfortable. After only a few washes, all the sheets have pilled badly. The fabric quality is inconsistent and must have been treated with something..they definitely don't feel like they did when new. There is no way these sheets are luxury..not even worth it for the sale price! Buyer beware!
1000TC QB Sheet Sets. Yes, it is rough feeling
Bought the sets from Spotlight on Boxing Day Sale. As well, bought the quilt sets. Nice color and patterns, but that's the only positive side. Just used it last week. Still sleep on it, actually. Keep feeling why this 1000TC feels warming the sleep all through the night. The 1000TC feels rough on the skin? Summer hot weather plus this quality of sheet sets together bring terrible sleep quality. What a great deal to waste over $100 on both sets. Will never buy this bedding again. Will tell my daughter and my great great granddaughter to never try this bedding..
1000TC sheet set spotlight
I purchased the very expensive 1000tc cotton sheet set from spotlight. 1st wash and the bottom sheet has pilled. I am very disappointed. I don’t have a receipt I will email spotlight for help. Hopefully I will be able to get a refund for faulty sheets.
600 thread count Queen size. Absolutely disappointed. After one wash and ten days on the bed the pillowcases feel apart all the seams came apart. Returned whole set for a full refund. Luckily I got them on sale pity the people who have to pay full price for this inferior quality product.
Purchased in January 2020.
Very very disappointed
I purchased the KOO 600tc from spotlight and was initially looking forward to sleeping on new sheets in my king bed. I washed them at 20degrees and noticed fraying on all the edges of all sheets and pillow cases. Hmmm. Moved onto fitting the fitted sheet and it rips from one end of the corner seem to the other. Refer photo. Never ever had a fitted sheet do this before. Next the flat sheet and its so short on the sides I cant tuck it in. Very disappointed in the quality and poor craftsmanship is an understatement. DO NOT BUY.
800 thread count Koo sheets
I too have been caught out with she sheets shrinking. The first set I bought I took back because they would not fit the bed after being washed. Thought I was just unlucky so swapped them for another set. The same thing has happened again. Not Happy.
800 thread Koo Sheets, I would never buy again.
Like Trish from Perth, I have found my Koo 800 thread sheets have shrunk. I bought the Queen size from Spotlight Browns Plains, top, bottom and pillow cases, put the bottom on the bed to check size, then washed them, they shrunk, but I could still fit to the mattress, 2nd wash, no way will they fit the bed. Doesn't anybody preshrink their cotton anymore, this is a blatant rip off.
I will never buy Koo again and moving over to Sheridan, might pay more, but I want the quality.

Itchy and Scratchy
I spent nearly $30 on a Queen fitted sheet that was supposedly 40%. At that price I expect some quality, I was already a bit dubious because it was a blend and I prefer 100% cotton but price and the samples you could feel to give an indication of the touch of the sheets convinced me. Even when I unpackaged the sheet it felt soft and lovely BUT as soon as it was washed it turned into sandpaper, we live rurally so just going back to spotlight to return it isn't an option Very Very disappointed
Do not Purchase Koo Elite 800 thread Q or K
16/02/2019 purchased a 800 thread Q sheets set made up the bed and a perfect fit so as usual washed them before sleeping on them, washed them in cold water & dried them on the line, they had shrunk so much couldn't fit the bottom sheet on mattress or pillows in pillow case returned them to spotlight. I wanted the colour (chambray) as it was a close match to my doona cover so decided to get the king size so if it did shrink it should still fit!!!, but alas no such luck after the wash the bottom sheet although over wide it still did not fit lengthways so back to the spotlight, to get a refund this time. Will not recommend this brand
Purchased in February 2019.
Washed my new queen sheet set, as I always do before using anything. Tried to put it on the bed the fitted sheet doesn’t fit. 100% cotton should not shrink. Therefor they are made too small. Thank goodness they were on special, hope it’s because spotlight have listened to these bad reviews.
Expensive sheets doesn't mean top quality.
Bought a set of Koo 1000 count sheets for $99 on special. After 3 washes, always in cold water and not dried in a dryer, the bottom sheet has shrunk 7cm in width, making it impossible to fit the mattress. Had thrown my receipt away, but was able to email Spotlight for a replacement receipt because I used my VIP card when purchasing them. They gave me a $99 gift card as a refund without any problem. I was not the first to return them for the same problem. Overpriced Chinese rubbish.
Don't waste your money
These sheets feel amazing but are made SO poorly - not to mention they weren't cheap! They started fraying after the first wash and continue to get worse every time I wash them. I wont be purchasing their brand again. Spotlight shouldn't sell this terrible product any more!
250 thread count sheet are a great everyday sheet, reasonable price, wash well, hardly any wrinkles when washed, they are smooth to sleep on, 300 thread count is even better, just a tad more expensive but a great sheet, sizes are correct, great value for money, Spotlight often have a sale on Koo which makes them even better.
Questions & Answers
