Rated 2 out of 5 by WiscMom Soft but not sturdy
I've ordered 3 sets of these sheets & have had the same problem every time: the bottom fitted sheet rips after about 1-1/2 years. The first time I thought I had done something, but now I think whatever process the sheets go thru to make them soft weakens the fabric. Too bad, because I really like the feel of the sheets. We will be buying a different brand of bedding from now on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shopall Holes in fitted sheet
Purchased fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillowcases less than 2 years ago. The flat sheet and pillow cases are fine and still look nice, but the fitted sheet has worn through and now there is a huge hole in it. Love LL Bean products, but the quality of the fitted sheet is very disappointing.

Love these sheets! I have had them for 2 years. They wash and dry perfectly. Look like new. Just bought a second set for another bed.

I also do not understand the negative reviews. I've had a set of these queen-sized sheets for several years and alternate them with another set of sheets each time the sheets are changed. They are still as soft and wrinkle-resistant as when I purchased them. My cleaning ladies change the sheets and are not particularly gentle with things, but I've had absolutely no problem with tearing or holes. I like these sheets so much that I'm purchasing another set for the queen-sized bed.
I also bought 2 sets of these sheets for a guest bed, and again have never had any problem with tearing or holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJMShopper Terrific sheet
Bought the entire set (king) and love it. While I was concerned about the color in advance (that it wouldn't go with our decor), after the items were put on the bed they look wonderful. They also feel very soft and comfortable, and the fit is excellent with the deep mattress (pillow-top). They have remained basically wrinkle-free after washing (as promised). Overall am very pleased (and I bought a second set in the purple color, and like that too).

Rated 5 out of 5 by FirstQuality All-around top quality sheet set
I don't understand the negative reviews - I'm as particular as a person can be when it comes to sheets, and I'm delighted with these. They fit my queen size mattress (with a regular pillow loft mattress pad, not very thick) - the bottom sheet isn't too deep for my 4 queen bed mattresses, the top washes and dries well, doesn't shrink - as for wrinkles they will wrinkle if you leave them sitting in your dryer for too long, otherwise, take them out and put them on the bed and smooth them out - they're soft and lovely. I have both the moss and the natural. Today I'm buying another 'natural' for yet another bed's mattress.
I've had no problem with holes or worn spots in any of the sheets I've bought in this style - or the pillowcases. They're as nice as the sheets.
I can't think of any way I'd improve these; I'm very happy with them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kmai1961 Not very "fitted"
I was surprised at the depth (15") of this fitted sheet. To be fair, the measurement is clearly stated in the detailed product description; however, I didn't look at it closely, wrongly assuming that it would fit a standard (or what I thought was standard) US queen mattress. Wikipedia says that standard queen mattress depth is 7-9" (my mattress has been in storage for several years, and I thought perhaps the standard size had changed). I can only guess that with such deep pockets, this sheet is intended to cover both a mattress *and* box springs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by beachmomLM Soft, but not durable
I am hoping they have been improved. I am buying these fitted sheets to go with the striped set I bought several years ago, but can no longer get. They are wonderfully soft, but as stated by others, ended up with holes and worn spots. As expensive as they are, I expected them to hold up better. I'll give these a try and see how they compare to my original fitted sheets. My room decor is based around the sheets, so I really don't want to have to go with another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LikeDurableBedding Loved the sheets at first, but now there's a hole
I loved these sheets at first, and bought them to coordinate with the cider house quilt. The quilt had threads pull apart, which I fixed myself since there were none available to replace it with, and now the fitted sheet has a hole. This was expensive bedding, and I'm disappointed it wasn't durable.
