Rated 5 out of 5 by SCStatebulldog SOFT, COOL AND STUNNING!
I can't understand the negative reviews of Bean's percale sheets: they are incredibly soft and beautiful! These Indian block prints are just fabulous, and I have mixed and matched from the collection of blue and white patterns currently being offered. The results have given my bedroom a great makeover!!
I'm so pleased with these percale sheets, and I highly recommend them. They have a very deep pocket and they tuck in extremely well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HanoverFamily Just like grandma's sheets!
I've been looking for good sheets for several years. I purchased the queen size in the Antique Pine color two months ago. These sheets are high quality - both fabric and sewing construction. They feel cool and smooth, just like grandmas! Also fit the bed perfectly (our bed is medium depth). I plan to buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogsNkids 'cool' sheets~
The negative reviews had me on the fence for months- but ultimately we did a 'whole house' bedding upgrade a few weeks ago. This included a new set of window pane percale sheets for 'mom's bed' as well as a new loft bed and sheets from a local store for my son (4.5yrs).
I LOVE these sheets! they were a tad stiff when I opened them, but a trip through the W/D and soft perfection for percal (might be the woolie dry balls helping to soften).
Within a few nights and a little one sneaking into my bed, my son announced simply- that HIS sheets are too warm, 'I NEED your bed mommy, the sheets are cold'! no lie- my 4.5yr old would rather have these sheets than the super soft sunwashed shark print ones he picked out! I just wish I could get one of the fun prints like the Buoy for his twin bed and keep him in his bed- not mine!
best of all- my 'double' pillow top mattress- which has been a struggle to find a Full fitted that stays put (I usually have to use queen that are sloppy or full that tend to pop off) these fit my bed perfectly! I sleep great- and even one of the dogs moved the duvet to get directly on the sheets (a first for this 9yr old lab).
love, love, love- will buy more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheHomemakerAtHome Great sheets but they do tear
Fantastic sheets, but after about 4 years they tore right in the middle. Other customers have said the same. But thanks to LL Bean's 100% satisfaction guarantee I sent them back and will get a new pair shortly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kali11 Flat sheet ripped for me, as well.
We also bought these 3 or 4 years ago and the fitted sheet also developed a significant tear in the middle of the sheet. They are unusable now. I would have expected more for the cost and have been super happy with them until now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Caroline208 Variable reviews from mine - would not repurchase
I purchased 2 sets (pink and green) based on the 100% cotton content and overall good reviews, and thinking some new sheets would be a treat. I don't understand the "thin" fabric cited since my sheets are really too heavy for me - only use them in the colder weather and still, they don't feel comfortable - and didn't soften upon washes as I had hoped. The top sheet size, since I have a platform bed, is fine but it seems it would be short in width with a box spring and mattress (length is okay). I wished they had used a little more fabric in the pillowcases. One Very Annoying Feature - same on both top sheets - is the top sheet border. It doesn't flatten as it should, is therefore wrinkly, and I even tried to repeatedly iron this border and the folds absolutely won't iron out. The double fabric border is also not as wide as other sheets that maybe adds to the problem of possibly too tight stitching, but this shouldn't have happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hapoycamper Love these sheets
We are so happy with these sheets, the are soft, cool and yet crisp. They wash well, which is something of a trick as we are retired and RVing full time and I'm using a small combo RV washer. I am ordering more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by susha1956 Really nice sheets but...........
I love the percale sheets...feel nice and launder very nicely...but a corner of the fitted sheet rides up, because it just doesn't quite fit right. I have a pillowtop mattress but it still seems a bit big. Otherwise, I really like these sheets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by caty80 Very soft, but color not as expected
I bought the 280-Thread-Count Pima Cotton Percale Sheets in Antique Pine. They're very soft and comfortable and overall I'm very happy with them, but the color is not at all what I expected. Online the shade of green seemed much darker (much more "pine") but when they arrived the green is more washed out and pale. I'm disappointed in the color, but they're very comfortable sheets so I'm keeping them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by WilliamATK Antique pine: color misleading
The material of this item is quite nice, however the color is substantially lighter than the picture would portray, and my opinion much less attractive. I intend to return it.
