Rated 5 out of 5 by judybelle Still loving these sheets
We've been using these sheets for about 6 months now. Still loving them. They weren't quite as "hand soft" when we first got them as I had expected, but the first wash helped move that along. These tend to be in the slightly heavier than average fabric category so they really add to the warmth during the winter. In warmer months I'm able to do without the bedspread and just use the sheet and a blanket. Now I have to force myself to put them into the normal sheet set rotation because otherwise I would just launder and put these right back on.
The fit is generous so no short side of the bed, plenty to tuck under at the foot and still fold over for decorative effect at the top. Pillow cases are very generously sized. I'm not noticing any color fading. I remove the sheets from the dryer and fold them and have no wrinkle problems. The seams and selvedges along the edges have stayed flat. No curl-up at all. Highly recommended.

So far I really like these sheets; colors were true to online pictures, and washing took out the stiffness. Top sheet especially generous; a plus for me as I am married to a "cover hog".

Bought these a couple of months ago and absolutely love them! Thought they were a bit pricey, but now realize that they are worth every penny. And it is so hard to find good sheets these days.
They come out of the dryer in great shape. No ironing needed at all. Soft and comfortable. I'm going to get another pair in a plain color.

I ordered pillowcases, flat sheets and a comforter cover in this pattern, I loved it so much (and had a seamstress sew me matching drapes out of a pair of the flat sheets)! Would you consider offering matching drapery panels in future years?

I have been buying sheets and pillowcases from LLBean for years now and will NEVER buy sheets from anywhere else. Not only are they the softest, but they are so well made that you wear them out after years of service.
My grandson can not believe how wonderful these sheets are and he always tells me how well they fit and how soft they are and he is sixteen-never figured he even cared about those things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyAnnie Best I've found
I have tried so many sheets in the last few years and these are the best. They are soft, smooth, but not too slippery (my husband moves a lot and the sheets tend to slide off). They don't pill. They are not too thin like some sheets. They feel heavenly on the skin. They have a nice finish detail at the top that looks just right.

We love these sheets! They are comfortable, strong & pretty. The bed always looks nice when these are on!! Why aren't more sheets wrinkle resistant?? btw, the bottom sheets fits our mattress & mattress pad very well! We are very pleased!

These sheets are just what I hoped they would be: soft, smooth fabric and a lovely print.

I ordered the Wheat Paisley flat, fitted, and two sets of pillowcases. I was pleasantly surprised that L.L. Bean's 300 thread count was as soft and smooth as my 400 thread count sheets. The sheets went through the washer and dryer beautifully. The color is as displayed on my monitor, beautifully vibrant. The monogram was in khaki which was the perfect thread choice.
Now, I have read one reviewer complain that the sheet is only printed on one side so when the sheet was folded over the plain side was showing. Allow me to explain how a flat sheet, when used as a top sheet, whether printed or plain, is placed on a bed. The give-a-way is the stitched sides and bottom hems on the sheet. The hemmed side is placed facing up so when folded over the blanket, or just folded over, the hemmed side is not seen, and if it's monogrammed, that too is right side up. The top and bottom print sides face each other. This is a very old school way to determine the correct side up even on solid colored sheets.
