Rated 3 out of 5 by ktillbean Good, but not exactly the quality I'd expect
I originally purchased a set of these sheets just over 2 years ago. I was thrilled with them - finally, that crisp, but comfortable sheet I had been looking for! I think some other reviewers have summed things up nicely - the sheet is plenty of big enough to tuck in, I purchased white so can't speak to the color but I was happy with it. Overall I've been happy with these sheets & would recommend them...BUT...I am slightly disappointed that they didn't last longer. I had to replace the fitted sheet in August this year (along with a 3-4 week wait for them to be available); and just last week noticed the top sheet had also torn along the seam at the top. So - replacing that and the pillowcases (predicting they will shred soon too). I've been really happy with the feel of the sheets, and admit they are well used/washed - but as a native Mainer, I do have higher expectations of LL Bean quality/how long a product will last. While enjoying this new set, I'll be looking for the next step up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PuritySyrup Good quality, nice feel
Having used these sheets (and matching pillow cases) for 3 months, I find them excellent for the price. They're not wrinkle-free, but they don't wrinkle much for something made of cotton.
The sheet is a little loose on my bed, even though it has a deep mattress, as these sheets measure even deeper. The feel is kind of a compromise between soft and crisp--quite soft but not ridiculously so. This suits me exactly. It bothers me now to put my old thin-from-the-day-I-bought-them sheets on the bed.
Since I bought white sheets, I can't speak to trueness of colour, and since I've washed them just 15 times, I can't speak to durability except to say that they're in great shape so far. Having said that, if these sheets stand up, I'll be buying more come spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ranchoedge Great sheets, cool and comfy color not as expected
These sheets are sturdy, yet soft. (Who expects sheets to last more than a year??) However, the color "silver sand" which I thought looked gray or "silver" is definitely more of a "sand" or tan color. Regardless, these are great sheets. Consumer Reports pick as well.

Running it through the wash now. Looks good so far.
Made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlineGran I like this sheet
I needed a queen fitted sheet. This one more than met my expectations. It's cool to sleep upon. It runs larger than most other queen fitted sheets I own, even with the memory foam topper on the mattress. Not really a problem. I have ordered pillowcases to match. I can't speak to other review that mentioned the sheet wore out rather quickly, the fitted sheet seems sturdy enough to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katbug Aesthetically Pleasing, and comfortable
I got these sheets after reading a good review in another magazine, and because I like the green color of the windowpane. They look so cool and crisp on my bed, and they are quite soft after about 3 washings. My 16 year old daughter liked the look too, and asked me to get her a couple of the sheets.

I purchased the base fitted sheet, a top sheet and 2 pillow covers. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the linens. The prints were first class. Now is the time to recylce the old ones and replace them with some more designs. Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AussieFanofLLBean Lovely quality percale sheets
I am really happy with these sheets. I've had them for 6 months now, and they wash beautifully. They don't crease as badly as other percale sheets I have which were more expensive. The stitching detail on the flat sheets and the pillowcases is a nice touch too. They are crisp and cool and exactly what I wanted. I must say I was really surprised at some of the negative reviews, they didn't seem to be at all relevant to these excellent quality sheets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoConn My sheet search is over
Having read every website review, every recommendation known to the internet and interviews of friends, relatives and sales clerks, we chose LL Bean's percale sheets. Yes, we're a bit OCD about our purchases (must be the NE upbringing), but we are 100% satisfied. Don't believe the 800 thread count nonsense, these are perfect. They are crisp, soft, and cooling to my hot flashes. Even my husband, who claims he would not be able to tell the difference, is sold! Thank you, LL Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Oldyellow Poor quality in a sheet
Purchased a set of sheets and pillow cases for our bed. The fitted queen sheet, costing over $50 made it just over a year, then there was a 18" tear at the foot of the sheet. Save your money!
