Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppinginMaine Love these sheets!
Have been looking for great flannel sheets for years and had not been able to find any that I really loved until I found these. I hesitated at first due to the price but they certainly prove the old saying 'you get what you pay for'! I bought them in the pale moss color and just love them. No pilling in the wash. The size is great with plenty of length to tuck in all around the mattress. They are so soft and warm - made for a wonderful nights sleep. May have to buy another set so I don't have to go without them on laundry day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Showjumper Not as good as they used to be, but not bad.
When I unwrapped my new premium flannel sheet set, I was disappointed because the flannel wasn't anywhere near as thick and luxurious as the flannel sheets I had purchased from Bean about 20 years ago. This set is nice; I will keep it and use these sheets for years, but in no way can they compete with the wonderful sets I have purchased from Bean in previous years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MireilleB Premium Supima Flannel Sheet
Last year I bought the flat and fitted sheets in white. I am in love with these sheets. They are soft, warm, comfortable and just the right weight. I even kept them on during the Summer while the air conditioning was on. They have been washed several times and do not pile. I found them expensive but certainly don't regret buying them. I highly recommend them.
I also bought the Heritage Chamois Flannel sheets. They are also great sheets, and do not pile either. The chamois sheets are heavier weight and personally I prefer the Premium Supima sheets. Would not hesitate to buy another set.

I have been buying sheets for many years with disappointing results. My husband suggested I buy the LL Bean sheets that were rated so highly. I have never bought such pricey bedding, but, as he said, you're wasting more money buying sheets that you cannot use because of shrinkage, why not give them a try. I bought the Botanical floral and the pink sheet sets and matching pillow cases. These sheets are spectacular!! We both love them, they fit our queen sized mattress after washing and drying. No more tugging at the corners to try to make them fit.They are so soft, and you don't have those wrinkles at the top where you fold it down, that other sheets have. There is plenty of room for the top sheet to hang down on the sides,top and bottom, I wish I had listened to hubby long ago. I will never buy any other sheets. I am so glad my "looking for nice sheets" days are over. Buy them, do not hesitate, you will not be sorry!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bedding Great reviews, but not durable aftet light use.
The Supima Flannel sheets have recieved great reviews. Based on those reviews I was excited to order a set; however, I am disappointed in them.
I purchased these last winter and upon washing them noticed an enormous amount of lint in the dryer lint filter, like I have never seen from anything else I have ever washed and dried. I used the sheets and then washed them again, again I had a large amount of lint.
I generally rotate my sheet sets, and did so with these, with a few different sets of Ralph Lauren's. I probably used these Premium Supima's no more than 4 times last winter, washed them, dried them (each time seeing a large amount of lint in dryer) and stored them until about 3 weeks ago for this winters use.
I washed and dried the sheets, again seeing the large amount of lint, used them, and started to notice how worn they feel. I've never experienced this with any of my other sheets. These sheets, after only 5 to 7 washes, have that worn out, thin feeling. I'm disappointed in them, they do not hold up to even light use.
While initially they felt very comfortable, now they feel cheep, uncomfortable, they lose their shape and that "just washed" feeling within a few uses.
Sorry LL Bean, but these are not worth the money if they won't hold up to even light use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBfromCANADA "Premium" says it ALL!!
These gorgeous Premium Supima Flannel sheets are the most wonderful & luxurious I have ever slept on. I've been to the best hotels in New York, London, Paris, & Toronto and nothing compares ANYWHERE to the elegance & comfort of these amazing sheets. I also bought the pillow cases and they (as well as the top sheet edge) are beautifully hemstitched. I bought mine in pink. They are the most exquisite "Ballet Pink" ever!
There's absolutely nothing better in this world than melting into a warm, cosy bed at night, and being enveloped in LLBeans' incredibly soft flannel sheets. Sweet dreams!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Koukie Good, but---
These are very nice sheets, but the bottom sheet had a thin spot in it and after just 2 washings it developed a hole. I have mended it and it is fine. However, I did not expect a flaw in the pricier sheet. I do prefer the Ultra soft sheets that I bought last year. They are thicker and warmer and cost much less. The Premium sheets are much silkier though. I guess it depends on what is important to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HighDesertHiker Sandbar Premium Flannel Sheets
These are wonderful, soft, thick flannel sheets that have really improved our quality of life in our cold climate. They are costly but worth it. The sheets are comfortable and warm up very fast and are like sleeping in a soft cloud. They have not pilled and launder beautifully. The review title says "floral," but we have the Sandbar color sheets. The Sandbar color has a slightly grey, cement cast but is close to the image on the website. I like the color. We did a lot of research on Portuguese flannel sheets from various high end vendors and chose the LLBean sheets because of the quality of LLBean products. We are happy with our purchase.
