Rated 3 out of 5 by PWCLover LL Bean needs to provide Queen-sized pillowcases
My gripe pertains to LL Bean's lack of offering of a queen-sized pillowcase in this style and in the other styles. The standard size is supposed to accommodate a queen pillow but it doesn't. My queen pillows [which I've also purchased at LL Bean] hang out of the standard cases. As an alternative, I purchased the king-sized pillowcase. They are too long but at least the pillows don't hang out of them. Please lengthen the standard case by 2 inches or offer a separate queen-sized case which is designed for a queen pillow. I'm sure I'm not the only customer with this complaint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Winniwoman Nice Sheets though Fitted May Wear a Bit Fast
I do love these sheets and our whole family uses them. In fact, my granddaughter adopted the pillowcases from her mom and dad's bed as her permanent "cuddle blankies". They are soft, smooth and have none of those little knots some percale has. I highly recommend them. The are only two slight flaws. One is that the top flat sheets are, for our queen size bed at least, a little narrow for today's modern very thick mattresses. The other is that the bottom sheet seems to wear out particularly fast in relation to the top sheet. This may be unavoidable due to the long fibers of this smooth type of fabric, so I don't know if it is truly a correctable flaw or is just something we must consider a "tradeoff" for having this smoothness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peekapoo Best sheet set
I bought a complete sheet set in the sea glass color. They feel very cool and so soft. Excellent quality and very well sized. The color is beautiful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CleverJane Ghastly flaw: Non-durable
These are deliciously soft Pima, matching our duvet covers and sheets, and the Ivory is a pale cream which we love. The quality of the cotton in these items is not high enough, so they cost us a lot extra in time, trouble and money. Our other Pima purchases from L L Bean do not have this ghastly flaw. The monogramming is usually excellent, but the last set of 4 had to be returned due to large pink dots showing in the center of the monogram. This is poor quality control, we have returned them for credit.

Bought sheets for the first time from LLBean and will again. These pillow cases are soft and superior. I even had my initials put on them which was also a first for me - a lovely shade of ivory on white. I am 100% satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Danale Need darker colors
I bought the 'darkest' color I could find in these and, although I love the quality of the fabric and the softness, I think the color is too light and mild. I would love to see these in darker SOFT TEAL and I'm sure many customers would like darker shades of colors too.
I hope LL Bean will consider making these or the pima cotton percale sheets in some shade of teal!

Rated 2 out of 5 by QuietRainDragon Disappointed
The weave and softness of the sheets and pillow cases are very good but I'm finding that the color is fading in an uneven, very displeasing manner. All the pillow cases are fading around the seams and edges as well as the sheets. For as much as these cost, this is a great disappointment. Maybe LLB should consider having these made in America instead of China.

Rated 1 out of 5 by njpjean 340 count sheets
I received this set for Christmas. I am very disappointed in the appearence of these once they were washed and dried on premanent press. These sheets and cases wrinkle and crease. I even tried to press them with a steam iron. You cannot get the wrinkleness out. I have never ironed sheets in over 49 years.
Would not recommend them not worth almost $200. Will never buy any thats for sure. With the price they should be wrinkle free forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ComfortableandSatisfied 340-Thread Count Cotton Sateen Pillowcases
These 340-thread count bed products perform well in AL: cool in the summer and just the right warmth for fall. After accidentally donating four of our favorite pillowcases, I learned L. L. Bean carried the product but no longer carried the older pattern we purchased many, many years ago. Customer Service helped me select a monogram color for the four new white cases, which complements our existing sheets. An accidental loss turned into a professional, fresh new look! Thanks, L. L. Bean.

So soft and cozy. Laundered exceptionally well. Really pleased with them. Would not hesitate to order more.
