Rated 1 out of 5 by DrJJoyner Color not as shown or described
The sheets came highly reviewed so I figured I'd give them a try. I ordered the "Silver Sand" color, which shows on every screen I own as a dark, silvery color. The sheets are in fact just plain beige sheets. There's not even a hint of silver to them.
Additionally, because I'm used to sheets coming in sets, it didn't occur to me to order pillowcases. Alas, they're not in stock for another month.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gratefulmom Color is not accurate
I agree with other reviewers that the color shown online is very different from what I received. I ordered the mid-blue expecting quite a dark color, almost a light navy. Instead the color is a very medium blue - it looks more like a slightly darker version of "Lake". I bought these to go with a patterned sheet set that needs new pillowcases, but these do not match at all. I cannot comment on the quality as I am not even opening the package.

I ordered the mid blue colored pillowcases to go with the ultra soft cotton comforter in the red/blue/tan plaid. On the screen it looked to be the perfect color. The color that I received is completely different than is shown on the website. It is more of a medium country blue. Disappointed. Otherwise seem to be nice quality.

Great quality material.
Love the lilac colour.
No wrinkles if taken out of the dryer right away.
Bought the pillow cases and the king fitted sheet.
Colour goes well with the heirloom purple matalesse covers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madisonres Queen sized pillow cases not available.
I love the feel and quality of these pillowcases but I have a queen sized bed and queen sized pillowcases. Queen sized sheets are available but not queen sized pillowcases. Thus, my only choice was to buy king sized pillowcases which are way to long and will have to be altered.
If queen sized sheets are offered, queen sized pillow cases should also be offered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TTBinBermuda Interesting fabric
I read some of the reviews before buying, and was interested to note that some said crisp and some said slippery. Now that I have them, I have to agree with the second opinion. They are not what I think of as Percale, which is hard to define but has a little 'tooth'. Not rough, but not slippery either.
I also noticed that some reviewers mentioned tears - either already in the sheets or were easy to tear. I must say that the fabric looks and feels pretty indistructable to me!
I have washed them in a hot wash and this hasn't made them more crisp. I dried them on the line in hot hot sun (in Bermuda) which perhaps was a mistake, as I think they would iron better if slightly damp. I haven't yet dried them in a dryer.
Overall, I would say the quality is good, but little disappointed that not more of what I think of percale. I use them for tourist guest apartments, and suspect they will last forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidwestNormal Terrific sheets
The Windowpane sheets have exceeded my expectations. The deep-pocket fitted sheets easily fit onto the mattress. The pillow cases are large enough to slip over pillows. Have washed these sheets 4 times and haven't found anything to complain about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jfdel THE BEST sheets ever
I researched online sheets prior to buying. Lots of cheaper sheets were described as too thin, pilling with wear or wash, uncomfortable.
LL Bean's 280 thread count percale sheets were top rated by consumer reports for the best percale sheets, and that is why I purchased these. They are crisp percale yet buttery soft, just the right thickness, the king size is generous on my king size bed. I am thrilled with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frenchy The yellow ones are nice and soft!
I have sensitive skin and find the yellow pima pillow cases as well as the mating pima sheets very soft and comfortable. To those who have not had the same experience, it could be the color. I have found variations in other products to the extent that one color was very soft yet another color in the same product was itchy.
We have never paid this much for pillowcases and sheets, but my husband and I agree that these pillow cases (and the matching sheets) are the best we have ever had. We will be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by char0rach Great Product
These sheets are high quality. I enjoy climbing into a bed that has crisp sheets. I've washed them several times now and have had NO problems. I do have to dry 1 king size sheet at a time in my dryer.
I have these sheets on 2 of our beds and will be ordering a set for a third bed this week.
Your pillow cases could be a little longer. But you still get 5 stars, since I'm extremely happy with the sheets.
I wish you carried solid colors in 220 count flat sheets, as that is my favorite thread count. The 3 sets of 220 ct, I bought 25 years ago from a local department store have finally worn out. I hope to get as many years out of your 280 ct sheets. I'll keep you posted.
