Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanshopper107888 Nice material, color not what I expected.
Love the material of these. Nice and cool, although I'm hoping they soften up after a few washes. I bought mid-blue hoping thinking I was getting a deep blue color . However the color looks a lot like the lake color, so much so I thought I had accidentally ordered the wrong color when I opened the package. I wish the pictures on the website were true to the real colors. I did order a flat sheet in antique pine, that is true to color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarlaV Great sheets, but not durable
Bought these nice sheets based on a flattering Consumer Reports review. Only two years later, the fitted sheet is so worn through that it has ripped. All hail the L.L. Bean return policy, which is the only reason why I picked "yes" in answer to "would you recommend this item to a friend?" ; the company is replacing the prematurely worn-through sheet. But still, one of the supposed virtues of these sheets was durability. Maybe this was a one-off problem, but a headsup to others. Other than durability, Mrs. Lincoln, the sheets are great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CocoLoco Fitted Sheet
The size of this sheet would fit a large pillow-top mattress like one I previously had. However, I have recently purchased a new mattress and it is regular size with not pillow-top. That makes this fitted sheet too big for my mattress; therefore it is not smooth fitting. Also, it feels like some type of spray finish was used on the sheets and they are not soft and cottony feeling like I was expecting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CocoLoco Not what I was expecting
These sheets are disappointing to me. They don't feel like a soft, plush cotton, but like they have some type of "finish" sprayed on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NickiClary Wonderful sheets that don't pill
I purchased these sheets almost two years ago and decided not to write a review until they had been washed many times -- I've often loved sheets and then have had them pill after multiple washings. These sheets simply get softer over time, but they remain smooth and crisp. I love these sheets -- they are well worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KyMel Sandpaper sheets
Bought these based on several positive reviews on non-Bean websites. But WOW. Worst. Sheets. Ever. They're so rough they feel like sandpaper. So terrible I got out of bed the second night and slept on the couch to get some rest. Then ripped them right off the bed in the morning and returned them. I didn't believe 280 thread count could be anything but rough, but the reviews said they were fantastic and I risked it. Go with your gut and avoid the sandpaper!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MaryJane57 At first delighted, but then....
I chose to buy these Pima Cotton Sheets after doing quite a bit of research online last December. I had never bought sheets from L.L. Bean before but, I like their clothes and the reviews looked promising. I actually bought the moss and not the windowpane that is showing now.
When I received the sheets, my husband and I were both pleased with them. They felt comfortable and they washed well. Now it is October, ten months later, and the fitted sheet has split and can no longer be used.
I am very disappointed. I feel that quality sheets should last longer than ten months. Sheets used to last until they faded out and then you knew to go buy new ones.
So I will do research and look for new sheets but, I will not buy these again.

These are quality sheets but they are slick as glass and the blankets roll off of them. Also they are very big unless you have a deep mattress.

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.
