Rated 3 out of 5 by Imaten Very wrinkly and stiff sheets
I bought the seashell print percale sheets two years ago and they are always wrinkled. After using fabric softener, by the bottle full several times, they are still wrinkled and stiff. Ironing the hem off the top sheet and the pillow cases, with spray starch, they still look wrinkled. I might add that on a guest bed they appear as if someone else slept in the bed. I love the print and the color combination but not happy the the appearance.
PS: to avoid the feeling of embarrassment I only use them on my bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ponyboy stay soft sheets always fit the bed
I bought the sheet set for my twin bed a few years ago. they have always come out of the dryer soft to the touch. they have always been wrinkle free. unless they changed the sheets I recommend the sheet set to everyone. the pillow case always comes clean, I use Clorox 2 powdered bleach. I have no complaints, ponyboy. the stiching also holds true to excellent sheets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keysfins Beautiful print, holding up well
This set caught my eye last year because of the beach-y pattern. I also liked the blend of colors, which coordinate with our bedroom decor. These ARE 'crisp', but I expected that when I read the product description (percale) as well as the reviews. The sheets have laundered well, with no fading or shrinking. We like them so much that I got another set for our guest bedroom!

Rated 1 out of 5 worst sheets ever
we bought these sheets with the expectation that we purchased a superior product with the LL Bean name attached. These sheets are so hard and unwieldy, they feel like sleeping in parchment paper. Even after continued washing (even with fabric softener) they are scratchy and uncomfortable. Not to mention that they come out of the dryer totally wrinkled. These sheets need repeated ironing if you want to use them again. They are horrible and we are very, very surprised that LL Bean endorses and sells such a product. If we hadn't already used them we would definitely have returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by srbKY SO pretty...
These are lovely sheets. I first bought them several years ago and was very pleased with them. I just bought a 2nd set. I use them in my beach house - so fresh and pretty. Like all percale sheets, they are best when ironed - silky, smooth but with a crisp hand - no soggy sheets on a humid night.

I have only used them once, but they are crisp and refreshing to sleep in/on.

Llbean percale sheets are never a disappointment. They always fit our beds perfectly and are very durable!

Rated 2 out of 5 by alwaysathebeach Wanted to love these...
I love this print and wanted so much to love these sheets but they are just too rough for me. I did wash them out of the package and put the wrinkled, cardboardy-feeling sheets on my bed. The fitted sheet fit really well, and the top sheet was a nice length. They looked so nice (even all wrinkly) that I thought I'd try sleeping on them to try and persuade myself to keep them. I just couldn't get used to the "crisp" feel and the noise they made whenever I shifted positions. So sad and disappointed and will be returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMpixs Cool and sturdy sheets
I live in southern New Mexico. It's hot 5 months of the year here. Three years ago I bought our first set of these sheets and they still look good and are sturdy.I need sheets that can handle cat claws too. If you want super soft sheets, buy sateens, but if you want crisp sheets that are sturdy, cool in the heat, and will last for years, then get LL Bean percale sheets! I'm purchasing my third set while they're on sale!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeadingNut A little disappointed
For the price, Wish these sheets were a little softer - more thread count. At first seemed a little stiff, but using them and doing OK. Honestly don't know if I would recommend to a friend. Love the design!
