Rated 5 out of 5 by Mervich The Boss Told Me To?
Needed another set of sheets for the guest bedroom and the boss told me to find a nice set that didn't break the bank. I do what I'm told?looked first to L.L.Bean and I found Sunwashed Percale Sheet Set. Quite frankly, I'm thinking seriously about taking up residence in the guest bedroom as this set feels more luxurious than the Bean sets on the other beds in the house. Kinda like Goldilocks?"and this sheet set felt juuuust right"?and he fell fast asleep.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1saavyshopper Cannot use them
I have a King size pillow top mattress.....The fitted sheet in this set works very nicely, but the flat sheet I simply cannot tuck it in on the sides.....I have to return both sets that i purchased and there are no alternatives......I am so disappointed, as LLBean seems to have the best selection available.....and best quality.
Also, the Supima Cotton, grown in the US, is by far the best cotton. Unlike Egyptian cotton, Supima is consistent in length. Would like to see a combed cotton percale, as it seems to be the softest. What ever happened to the Supercale - i.e. the no-iron combed cotton poly blends? ....So sorry LLBean, i love doing business with you. Excellent service....

Rated 2 out of 5 by FeeShopper NOT soft
I ordered two sets of these sheets for twin beds. They came out of the package very stiff, almost like plastic. What is done to 100% cotton to make them like that? I put them through a wash and dry cycle, hoping they'd soften, but they didn't. They're noisy when you move in bed (another reviewer described it as "crinkling" - I agree). I just purchased them in January, so hoping they will soften over time, but to describe these as "soft" is baffling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nathan1234 Great sheets, durable, comfortable
I have had these sheets for 4 years and love them - they hold up fantastic, fit well, feel great, and wash easily. I read lot of complaints about softness - not sure what that's all about. These sheets have a great, crisp feel to them when washed, and after a night or two they're perfect... like a good pair of jeans.
I am a cyclist, and with shaved male legs I will DESTROY all sheets within a matter of days. That these have held up as long as they have with no pilling, no tearing, and no thinning, is impressive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TNPat Not soft sheets!
These sheets are not soft at all. I've washed them 3 times, and they still aren't any softer. They make a very annoying crinkle sound every time they're moved (like turning over in bed). The crinkle sound is like the crinkle sound you get when you move plastic. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I'm still looking for soft cotton sheets, but not sateen finish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shopperrrrrr not soft as advertised
Received these sheets and they felt hard and scratchy in the package. My husband convinced me to wash them. After washing they didn't soften at all. Advertised as being especially soft. This is definitely not the case. They feel extremely utilitarian and supremely non-special. Cheap-feeling. I thought I was buying something luxurious and really nice; I'm sorely disappointed. They went back the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danale Love the 'mineral green'
The sheets are excellent quality, and I absolutely love the color (mineral green) it's exactly the tone I wanted, it's like 'warm' green, more vibrant and modern than vintage green.
The only thing I dislike very much about these sheets is the size of the 'fitted' sheet, they are too unfitted too huge for my new queen size mattress .... I cannot understand why all of LLBean sheets are so huge and not fitted at all ......

Rated 3 out of 5 by LynthiaRae Color misleading
Loved the fabric of these sheets. HOWEVER, most of us need a specific color family to blend into our bedroom decor. I purchased the vintage green, and I am now returning them at my return postage expense. Unfortunately I would say if you are trying to match a color family and you aren't physically looking at these sheets do not purchase them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanwinky Sunwashed Percale Sheet Set
We bought these sheets in January 2013. We bought white, queen-size sheets. These sheets are very generously cut so they cover the queen-size bed very well. We have laundered these sheets at home using mild detergent and no bleach or fabric softener. We have dried them in the dryer and hung them on the line. Minimal wrinkling does not affect the comfort. The substantial fabric is very comfortable in winter and summer. It does not cling to the body. When there is time, the pillowcases get ironed but when there isn't time, it doesn't affect the comfort of the fabric. We have never noticed any unpleasant odor from the fabric. We love these sheets and will be purchasing another set.
