Rated 5 out of 5 by MichiganKara Bedding perfection!
Oh em gee! These are, literally, the perfect sheets. I am super picky about sheets and bedding; I ordered and returned sets from three other companies before finding L.L. Bean's Sunwashed Percale. They are everything others have said: crisp, cool, light, airy, and deliciously soft--the right kind of soft, not that icky, heavy, satiny feeling. I can practically see them drying on the line in the sunshine at a Caribbean spa. I love them so much, I'm immediately ordering a second pair. Please, L.L. Bean, never change them!

I love my sunwashed percale sheets I just purchased from LLBean. I've been trying for ages to get the same feel that I had growing up when the sheets were always hung outdoors. Thank you LLBean for finding just what I wanted. They feel and smell (how do you do that even after washing them, or is it just my wishing and imagination!) just like I remember. Wow! They are great. I'd certainly recommend them to anyone.

These sheets are everything I have been searching for. I bought one set and fell in love and came back and bought a second set. I'm sure I will be buying more. They are cool, crisp, have a body to them that you don't find with supima, and get better with every washing. The deep pockets are great and the sides of the sheets really cover the mattress. I only wish the fitted sheets were offered as separates as I don't always want a flat sheet. Please don't change them.

I recently received my set of sunwashed percale sheets and pillowcases. I purchased them based on the reviews. I am vey disappointed with this product- they hardly feel washed and almost do not feel like all cotton. I wished I would have returned before using-- maybe I got a bad batch. I think the term sunwashed is very misleading when it come to this product.

I just received my Sunwashed Cotton Percale sheet set (with an added set of standard pillow cases) in white. After washing them, they have a wonderful crisp cotton feel. Yes, they make the typical sound associated with a thickly woven, crisp cotton. If you are looking for the limp, silky, sateen sheets, then check other options at LL Bean. These percale sheets are exactly what I have been looking for! I cannot attest to their durability yet, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.
One suggestion: Consider making a queen size pillow case. The only option is standard or king. I would have ordered king, but I wanted the pillow cases to match the ones that came in the queen sheet set and those appeared to be a standard.
Satisfied so far!

This review may sound like a robot wrote it, but I assure you, I researched sheets extensively, perusing several websites and reading others' review over and over. I settled on these and had somewhat low expectations because of the price point.
I wanted sheets that breathed, that had that slight crinkly feel (do not mistake this with lumpy, or sheets that bunch up and leave marks on your skin). They remind me of when I stayed in a pensione in Italy years ago on an Island in Sicily. Or, the kind of sheets you might find at a spa. They were cool, soft.... like super soft and they feel like they have been baking in the sun. They seriously remind me of Summer, and vacations, and they remind me of the salty sea.
They are not sateen soft, which frankly, feel to me like slick, silky, slippery sheets that don't absorb any heat. I would wake up sweating bullets. These sheets make me want to retire my sateens instantly. In fact, one night on these sheets and I ordered another this morning.
The best I've ever had, and unbelievable price.

I loved these sheets when I first received them. Yes, they crackle, but that didn't bother me. They soon became soft. After several washings, little holes started appearing, which grew larger with each wash. Both the pillow cases and the sheets now have large holes. I get angry every time I look at the holes. While these were not the very best sheets I could have purchased, they still should have lasted a lot longer than they did! They weren't cheap! Would not recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhxBean Sunwashed Percale sheet set
Now *these* are percale: crisp, cool, sturdy, like the percale LLBean used to carry, and nothing like the slippery 280-Pima "percale" imposters that feel like nylon!
The Blue Mist color is a much paler powder blue than pictured. The Natural color is exactly as pictured in the sheets, a beautiful buttery-yellow/cream color. The picture for the set of extra pillowcases inaccurately makes them seem beige or khaki, which they aren't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barrie41 Wonderful percale sheets.
These sheets have everything I want and like in sheets. They are crisp,not flimsy; smooth, not slick and are generously sized. They are good for all seasons. I line dry them and when I hold them up against the sun I can't see through them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Treesoutsidemywindow Cool and crisp!
These are just what I was looking for. They feel smooth but not slick. They are generously sized and feel substantial. The "natural" color is more like a soft yellow, which I love. I am very happy with these sheets.
