Rated 1 out of 5 by Tanne Noisy sheets
I am not happy with these sheets and can't remember ever being dissatisfied with a product from LLBean! The sheets crackle - they have been washed and dried twice but still make noise. My husband does not like them at all...so this was a poor choice. Even sheets that are "sun dried" don't "crackle" like these.

These sheets are exactly what I have been looking for - old fashioned, cotton percale. Beautiful fit and feel for old timers who like quality bedding, as it used to be before microfiber, sateen, etc were invented. Definitely worth the price and comfort.

I bought these sheets hoping they would be crisp and soft and they did not disappoint in the least. Now I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning! I'm going to buy a 2nd set for my guest room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toots756 Found...the best sheets by far!
Great fit on a King bed with 2 frequent tossers/turners...clean, crisp quality cotton. The sound the sheets make as you toss them up to make the bed almost sounds like sailcloth, a guarantee you will never regret spending the cash on these sheets. I think about getting in these sheets all day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Aquanut Love the quality but not the noise!
The quality of these sheets is great but they crinkle too much and wakes me up.
I prefer the 280-Thread-Count Pima Cotton Percale Sheet, have two sets and they keep getting softer and softer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2westies Cotton percale sheets
Finally! I have looked and looked until these. Unhappily, many of the quality products of the past are no more, but these sheets are a real find! Actually, I only have the pillowcases bought at full price. I can't afford the complete set..yet. I had a discount code and, lo and behold, a sale! Thus, I was able to purchase another set of pillowcases. The unhappy customers are used to the modern "feel" of bedding and prefer it. But when buying cotton, the wrinkling and the crisp rustling is part of the old fashioned bedding. We used to iron all our bedding before permapress! I recommend the moderns stay with what they're comfortable with. But for us oldies, thankfully there are still a few of the old products around!
Soft, not scratchy
Generous in length and width
Washes beautifully (I have always ironed my pillowcases)
Does not shrink in the dryer

I read all the reviews and decided to take a try on these sheets since they were loved by so many. But I do agree with the negative review that the sheets "crack" like sails. Every time I move in bed the sheets rustle. I have washed them multiple times and there is no additional softness. I even went back and read all the reviews because I can't believe these are the same sheets that everyone else loves. I have gone back to my worn and inexpensive sheets, and the Bean sheets are in the closet.

Like another reviewer, I have been looking for quality crisp percale sheets and striking out. We like the crisp, non-clingy feel of percale : A) because we live in a humid climate and B) because it feels like sleeping in a luxury hotel. These sheets are the most substantial ones that I have been able to find. They are well made. I expect them to last. Ordering my second pair today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Texas2Sum Sheets too big
I was surprised when I received these sheets and they looked used - wrinkly and poorly folded. I returned them and reordered a 2nd set and when they arrived in the same condition I realized that this is the "pre-washed" look that the company is looking for.
The sheets are super soft and I like that but they are huge - too big for my king bed. The fitted sheet does not fit tight to my mattress and the corners slip up, leaving the sheet lumpy all over. I am disappointed. My mattress is an extra thick mattress and this is the first 15" pocket sheet that I have bought that is too big on my bed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thomask Fitted sheet is a bit loose
I prefer a fitted sheet to fit tightly to minimize wrinkling when I sleep. This one is a little loose, perhaps to allow for those with a thick mattress topper, though I have a very deep mattress. The fabric quality is excellent; substantial and very soft. The sheets make a funny rustling noise, almost like taffeta, which is not really a big deal. I've only washed them once and this will probably go away after more washings.
