I love these sheets. Usually I get higher thread count sheets but I find myself too warm with softer sheets. I wanted something "crispy and cool" so I tried these percale sheets.
I haven't slept better in a long time. I have a memory foam bed with a mattress cover that is waterproof. This makes my bed on the warm side. However, after using these sheets, I no longer feel overheated. The sheets are soft, yet cool and crisp. They wash well with some shrinkage but the quality remains. I am sticking with percale!

Rated 4 out of 5 by snapperblue great except pleat-like wrinkles at hem
I really like these sheets. They are very comfy and soft. I don't understand the other reviews that say the are rough, noisy, or cling when you move on them. That is not my experience. I ordered another set.
I have an old mattress, not deep like the modern ones, so most fitted sheets are too loose. However, the elastic on this fitted sheet does a good job keeping the sheet in place.
The only thing I don't like is that the top sheet wide hem has permanent pleats- always in the same place- making the hem tightly crumpled. I have experienced this with sheets and shirt plackets- don't know why.
So I have to iron the hem, very annoying. Or, when it comes out of the washer, I can stretch the cloth and rub it back and forth across the edge of the washer, bit by bit along the hem, which may flatten it enough so I can get by without ironing it.
Otherwise I'd give 5 stars.

I bought a king size set and absolutely loved them. They feel fresh and crisp (not rough), no matter how many times I wash them. So of course I had to buy another set for a queen size bed. They feel like brand new sheets and are so nice to get into after a long, tiring day. Great product!

I bought these because the majority of the reviews were positive, but was surprised how much noise these sheets make. Pretty obvious every time you move the sheets to get in or out of the bed. Also as one person said, they are not cool. I think they feel somewhat rough. Very disappointing.

This set is simply wonderful. They fit our king size bed perfectly and they are so lovely. Would recommend these to anyone.

I bought these sheets two years ago and waited to see how they would wear before posting a review. They are the best sheets I have ever purchased. The quality is excellent. They have not shrunk at all in two years of washing and still easily fit our deep mattress (sleep number bed). They are comfortable, not too soft, not to stiff. I would definitely buy these again.

I rarely write product reviews, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to give LLBean credit for this superior product! My wife and I have searched high and low for sheets that we both like and this fits the bill. She can't stand flannel and I'm not a fan of sateen. This set feels soft and cottony, crisp and clean. I actually feel like I'm sleeping better since we put these sheets on our bed. I think I'll have to buy more pillowcases!

I bought queen size sheets without checking the size. I would have chosen QUEEN fitted, FULL flat and KING pillowcases if I had bought them separately.

Bought these a year ago on a lark - and love them! Wash great - fit our mattress perfectly and feel wonderfully cool. They have the right balance of soft and crispness. This is worth every penny as it it pure quality! Bought another set of these in the driftwood color recently and they are just as perfect! please don't change a thing LL Bean as you have a great product! Love the print and colors too!

Some people prefer sateen--the slinky, silky cotton sheets. Some people prefer flannel--the warm, snuggly cotton sheets. My family, however, prefers percale. Percale is the crispy cotton. The cool, comfortable-against-your-skin cotton that is substantial--that's percale. We find that we actually sleep better when enveloped in percale. It breaths, it holds up in wash after wash. It feels good. You don't slide around on percale and you are never hot on percale. That's why we were extra-thrilled to find these wonderful LL Bean percale sheets. Yes, you pay more for Bean quality because it will likely outlast you. The fitted sheet is ample for deep mattresses, the pattern of the flowers on these sheets is lovely without being obtrusive. Loved them so much, we've bought two sets and are coming back for a third set for our 12-year-old who jumped on our bed and said, "Wow, these sheets feel good. I want sheets like these." Child AND parent approved.
